This is Todd again.
I have a confession to make; I didn’t know of Ben Bochner before the show. All my Google searches turned up nothin’. So I was pleasantly surprised by what a nice and accomodating guy he is, and a total professional (not to mention a really cool songwriter!). I think Ben’s going to do well here. Chicago doesn’t know what it’s missing.
(Note to self: “Everybody’s Gotta Learn Sometime” is my favorite song to end the show with, but I’ve done that a few times now, so it’s probably time to find an alternative.)
Here’s the playlist:
Crystin Byrd – Shadow – My Silence (self)
John Vecchiarelli – To The Brim – Songs From Whoville (Speck)
Yann Tiersen & Shannon Wright – Dragon Fly
Susie Blue – Slip – Sink (Sinking Ship)
Ben Bochner live:
Bobby Just Got Out Of Jail (false start)
Everybody’s Ass Is Up For Grabs
John Wesley Harding – When The Beatles Hit America (dedicated to Thuy)
Ben Folds – Give Judy My Notice
Mia Doi Todd – Digital
Beck & Jon Brion – Everybody’s Gotta Learn Sometime – “Eternal Sunshine” s.t.
Thanks to all those who pledged to HCW and KPSU!
I’d like to give a shout out to John N. Dallas.
