Sooooo! Jeremiah and I went to Columbus this Saturday to see my all-time favorite dude play a show. Ben Folds. I'm sure you have heard me go on and on about him.
I didn't think I'd be so swoony/dumb teenager like about the whole experience, but I was just like the little teenager girls trying to see him outside the venue while we were waiting to get in...looking for his tour bus...squealing when they finally let us into the venue... It was probably embarassing for Jeremiah, but he handled it well. He was smiling the whole time too, so I think he was more excited than he let on.
So here's the worst part about the whole trip (other than the absolute GOD AWFUL hotel we stayed at. So expensive and so freaking cheap):
I FORGOT TO TAKE MY CAMERA OUT OF MY PURSE, SO SECURITY TOOK MY BATTERIES!!! NO PHOTOS, NO VIDEO, I FEEL SICK JUST THINKING ABOUT IT.
Regardless, I found some video on youtube. Turns out this video was taken by the people next to us: Landed
I think you can hear me singing. And I always hated those chicks that sing along the whole concert. But I so did it. I also cried.
He opened up with the 'fake' Bitch Went Nutz which was hilarious. "I took her with me to the Christmas office party... Mistake!"
He played Kate later in the night. Everyone loved that. My kids like that song a lot. Listen to the guys singing along with this. There were so many more dudes there than I expected!
This video wasn't from the show I went to, but was from the Pittsburgh show I couldn't attend. Awesome sound (probably cause it was a very small club). I heard the show was super crowded and very uncomfortable, but this video makes it look awesome. Hiroshima
Here's the only photo I got that night, Jeremiah waiting out in line in the freezing rain with me just so I could see Ben Folds in concert. Turns out he came out after the show and signed autographs...I went straight home to bed and totally missed that. I wasn't even thinking!!!!! Ugh!
