Sarah: In Love with Possibility

Keeping with tradition (see 1 and 2), Marci, Mallory, and I went to a Ben Lee concert on Friday night. Unfortunately, Lisa was unable to join us this year, but Mal and I were glad that Marci was able to experience Ben, sans gold suit and Rooney fans, in a small intimate venue like we did for the first time two years ago. Ben was charming and happy, per usual, and we had a great time.

The keyboardist played with Ben on his last two tours also. Maybe they're best buddies. We love it, regardless. The girls appreciate loyalty.

Cary Brothers, possibly best known for his song on the Garden State soundtrack, opened for Mr. Ben with a great set. He was also funny and charming, recommending tv shows to the crowd and just being generally personable and nice.

Like in concerts past, everyone else on the tour joined Ben for one of his last songs.

A Ben Lee tour is a happy tour.

I wish every day could be a Ben Lee day.

I wish every tour that came around was as much fun as the two of these guys. I caught the Seattle show because I have no spine and a cute girl can drag me anywhere. I expected to suffer. Instead, I descovered two guys who are great singer-songwriters and who don't take themselves too seriously while STILL maintaining that star thing. Go figure...
