Ben Folds at the Hollywood Bowl

This post is a touch late.  Why?  Because even though this concert was this past Saturday night, Larry & I drank a ridiculous amount during the concert and then even afterwards at a game night we went to following.  So Sunday was a no-go for pretty much everything.  Anyway!

The show was great, up until the point when Ben Folds left.  I am not really attuned to the music of Elvis Costello so when he came on, I tried my best to appreciate it, but I’ve now come to the realization that his music is just not for me.  So as you may see in the pictures below, there’s just not that many from his part of the show.  As for Ben Folds?  His performance was fantastic.  He was great with the audience and hilarious and amazingly talented.  It was a brief set though, which for future reference, please know I’d happily pay for a ticket to a solo Ben Folds concert.

The Setlist for Ben Folds at the Hollywood Bowl, September 6, 2014:

  1. Effington
  2. Jesusland
  3. Narcolepsy
  4. Cologne
  5. 3rd movement of something classical Ben Folds composed
  6. Landed
  7. One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces

Good stuff!  Couldn’t tell you what Elvis Costello played.  Got too drunk and fidgety to care.  🙂  Have to say, Larry & I will be at the Hollywood Bowl for 3 shows in the span of 7 days.  That’s a lot of time spent at the Hollywood Bowl!!!!
