Watch Ben Folds Five play “Draw A Crowd” on “Conan”By Julio Enriquez | January 31st, 2013 | No Comments »
I always felt that Ben Folds Five lost their way after “The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner.”
The “lost years” were filled with a breakup, questionable material that wasn’t as well received and producing Amanda Palmer. It’s safe to say that the magic lost has been bottled with the newly reformed trio in the latest release, “The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind.” Check out Reverb’s coverage of the Billy Joel-inspired trio (obvs) last week at the Ogden Theatre, and watch Ben Folds Five perform “Draw a Crowd” on “Conan.”
