Rockin' The Suburbs

Ben Folds' first solo album Rockin' The Suburbs was released on September 11, 2001. Eric bought it that day and it sat, unopened, on our dining room table for a couple of weeks. We just couldn't bear to listen to it while being in shock, etc. over the events that had occurred. Once I finally got around to listening to the cd, I found it to be healing. Music often does that for me.

That October, Ben did a couple of shows in L.A. and we were lucky enough to be able to go to a very intimate show he did at a bowling alley in Eagle Rock. This (crappy) photo is of him while he was being interviewed.

After the interview and show in the bowling alley bar, Ben met all of the fans and signed autographs. I told him how much his album helped pick me up from feeling so low after the September 11th events. I think he really appreciated it.
