Wow. Ben Kweller really hit all of his marks. Playing as only a 3-piece, Kweller & Co. mostly rocked out. They stayed away from most of the country and slow stuff.
My girlfriend, for one, had never heard them before and left a big impression (I’m under orders to burn her some CDs).
The crowd also went nuts for him and sang to almost every song. He also decided to make an impromptu appearance at the merch booth, which was mobbed.

Landing On the Moon was also pretty good. Highlight of the local stage (so far).
