Ben Folds Brought the House Down

Everyone’s heard that anthem for bad relationships and impossible situations dubbed “Brick”. In ’97 it hit the shelves and by ’98 it became a permanent part in our memory of those youthful days of summer. It was depressing as hell but spoke right to us, no metaphors or hidden symbolism. That’s really what makes Ben Folds, as a song writer, so incredible. Why he ends up having die-hard fans for life and why the Showbox Market was sold out long before he hit its stage on Monday night.  To Folds, playing piano is a sport; more often than not he was standing, his legs set in a wide stance, playing into the keys like he was about the jump onto them (and at one point he did fall down on them with a vengence to finish off a song).

I can only describe his music as powerful and I’ll leave it at that. It’s been at least three years since his last performance in Seattle and we sure as hell hope he doesn’t wait that long till the next one.
