It’s "DECLASSIFIED: Ben Folds Presents" time again! TICKETS: This March 8 concert lands on International Women’s Day, so I'll recuse myself of my usual MC duties, and my deputy Sarah Silverman will handle hosting. I’ll be there to add piano, and to be Silverman's humble servant in general - getting her coffee, steaming her clothes, feeding her untrue information over her teleprompter. Plus, I’ve twisted her arm and she may even sing. We'll also welcome other great artists to the stage: Julien Baker, who you may know from boygenius or her own solo work; Danay Suarez, Cuban rapper and one of my favorite new voices returning for her second NSO performance; and Leah Hawkins, an absolutely stunning soprano who's risking her reputation to join our motley crew. Leading the evening will be Akiko Fujimoto, Assistant Conductor for the Minnesota Orchestra. For anyone who has missed past "DECLASSIFIED: Ben Folds Presents", these are concerts where I get to pair my favorite pop(-ish) artists with the National Symphony Orchestra on The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Concert Hall stage. We don’t go for electric instruments blasting while the Orchestra is relegated to playing long sweet notes over the top. No need to worry about how you dress. Just bring your ears and hearts. This is a safe space, like dropping by my house with a drink and listening to records. There’s even booze in the lobby. And for symphony heads who don’t know anything about current pop artists, it’s the same thing in reverse. Good music didn’t stop happening mid-20th century. We're still all about beautiful melodies and talent that inspires. It’s just music. Trust me, when you hear good stuff with friends, you get it. Be there AND be square!

This show happens to land on International Women's Day, so I'll be featuring my friend Sarah Silverman; Julien Baker, who you may know from boygenius or her own solo work; Cuban rap artist and all around badass Danay Suarez, returning for her second DECLASSIFIED performance; and Leah Hawkins, who has an absolutely stunning soprano voice. All our DECLASSIFIED shows adhere to a set of principles that set it apart from other kinds of orchestra performances. There is no rock band on stage. The orchestra IS the band. There's no need to worry about how you dress. It's just great music. Trust me, when you hear good stuff, with friends in context, you get it. It's like dropping by my house with a drink and listening to records.

I travel nearly every day in my work, and I'm always impressed with TSA and their thankless gig (always hand check my film). And today the same. 👏🏼 👏🏼 👏🏼 - sorry it’s taken the recent needless kerfuffle for us all to express gratitude.

Now on streaming platforms! Ben Folds Five - "The Complete Sessions At West 54th" (550/Epic 1997) Recorded for the public television program of the same name, but only broadcast in fragmented form until a full DVD release in 2001, Ben Folds Five’s full performance on "Sessions At West 54th" captured the power of the piano-punk trio with fabulous renditions of tunes from their self-titled debut and the just-released sophomore album, "Whatever and Ever Amen." In addition to BFF favorites like “Brick,” “Philosophy,” “Underground” and “Kate,” the sets also includes the then-unreleased power-pop tune “Emaline,” and a quirky, lounge-act cover of The Flaming Lips’ “She Don’t Use Jelly.” Show host and KCRW-FM DJ Chris Douridas promises at the top of the set: “If you’ve seen these guys before, you’re a fan. If you haven’t, then you’re gonna be.” This set proves him right.

Thankful for a whole quiet day off to put records in alphabetical order. I know that’s a vapid thing to be thankful for. Let’s add my family friends and health too.
