Ben Folds Five reunites for MySpace concert

The members of now defunct piano rock trio Ben Folds Five will reunite for a one-off show for a performance of their final album, 1999’s The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner.

The trio will perform September 18 at UNC's Memorial Hall in the band's hometown Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and marks the band's first concert since disbanding in 2000. The reunion is all part of MySpace’s new “Front to Back” series which features bands performing a signature album in its entirety. The shows are recorded and are later posted on MySpace.

“Of our three albums, this one brings back the most vivid memories, Folds recently told Rolling Stone.
“It was actually written to be one song of many movements, which is why there are motifs that appear throughout the album. That should make Reinhold a natural to be played front to back.”

Tickets go on sale Monday, September 8, with all proceeds to benefit Operation Smile.

PLATFORM ONE ENTERTAINMENT: NEW BAND FOR SOUND ADVICE TO CHECK OUT Hey Sound Advice, this is Chrysti Walters and I am an independent music coordinator at Platform One Entertainment, a music and event marketing company based out of Chicago. Not too long ago, I let you know about one of our new alternative/powerpop bands out of Milwaukee, Disaster March and their leading single “It’s Meant what you meant to Say” off of their new album “Dire Days.” I was wondering if you had a chance to listen to their music found at www.myspace.com/disastermarch and I’d love to hear any feedback you may have.

If Disaster March wasn’t really your style, I’d still like to have a phone chat with you and see if there are any other artists of ours that may be of interest to you.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing your thoughts soon! My e mail is cwchrystip@gmail.com
