Ben Kweller / Sam Roberts Band / Hymns live @ First Avenue 10/6/06

You know, I'm usually not a fan of singer/songwriter stuff. Actually it's pretty much the polar opposite of everything I listen to. However, last night's show was surprisingly good. I really enjoyed all 3 artists immensely. Ben Kweller is extraordinarily talented and crafts great organic pop/rock tunes. Do try to catch him live on tour at a venue near you soon. Thanks Amy for taking me to the gig last night!

dude - i felt the same way when i heard ben kweller had a new "great" album out. blah blah. then heather big-upped him on her site and i gave it a chance and i love it. i think my taste lies somewhere between yours and hers. i am going to see ben k. in a few weeks in nyc.

Sounds like a solid show... I've always liked a few songs from Ben K. and Sam Roberts Band but haven't gotten too into either one. Will probably have to give them each another listen.
