No, not mine. Not my fans. This time, I'm a fan.

Of Ben Folds. Big time.

I've been to two concerts (of the rock variety) in my LIFE. One in 1997 (Celine Dion, who, I'm happy to say, is great with an audience) and Ben Folds' last apppearance in the KC area, at City Market, with my sister, Jim, two friends of his, and about 3000 other people (including [livejournal.com profile] mipuravida). It was fantastic, and contained my favorite concert moment ever. Ben Folds + backup band were travelling without a horn section, so... he directed the audience to SING the brass part in ARMY. Best. EVAH.

So now he's playing again, this time at KU's own Lied Center. November 6. 8:00 p.m.

Those of you with calendars (in your head or otherwise) know that's a Monday night. Those of you who know me personally know what a morning person I am, i.e. what a night owl I'm *not*.

This late-night (for me) performace on a school night hasn't phased me for a second. I was concerned that my lovely husband wouldn't be able to go with me, since a workday follows for him.

See, Jimmy? I really am a fan. I hope I get to sit/stand close enough to see his hands again. I could watch him play for days.

Wanna plan a trip up here? I'll get you a ticket, and if it turns out you can't come, then I can probably find someone to take it. :) They're $10 for students, $25 for everyone else. I'm going to buy student tickets tomorrow, and whoever's not a student just pays `$15 at the door as well. :)

Whaddaya say?
