On September 18, the Ben Folds Five trio will reunite in Chapel Hill, North Carolina to play their last album – The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner – in its entirety. This is a benefit show for Operation Smile and is being hosted by MySpace. The show will be released later by MySpace.
Messner is firmly planted on my “top albums of all time” list. I was told of this show in an email that I only opened a few days ago – after the tickets went on sale. It would be fantastic to be at this show, and I hope copies of it start appearing shortly after.
Incidentally, one of my favorite parts of writing this blog is the random videos that I come across. Who knew this existed…?
