I’ve been waiting a good five-six years to see Ben play; he finally came through Pittsburgh a few nights ago: holy shit, the show, fucking amazing. Yeah, I was real drunk, but shit it was one of the best shows I’ve ever seen.
I’m doing my best to remember the set list; I probably left a few out. In a very vague order:
- A Song for You (Leon Russell cover)
- You Got Served
- Boxcar (Jawbreaker cover)
- Team Reasonable
- Two Phil Ochs covers (neither of which I knew)
- Sheriff Ochs
- Bird of a Feather
- 26 is too Soon
- Free Advice
- A Thought from the Kitchen Floor (I’m not sure if he played this, I can’t remember)
- Share the Road
- Passionate (I think I pissed a few people off when I started screaming along, rocking the air drums hard)
- Song For Annie’s Harmonica (no harmonica)
Yeah, so, amazing show. Be smart, don’t miss this tour.
