Ben Harper And Blind Boys of Alabama

Last Week I was given tickets to watch Ben Harper on The Carson Daly Show(Thanks Randi). Ben was promoting his new album with the Blind Boys of Alabama, which has much more of a gospel sound. They performed two songs for the show, but stayed after the taping and played about 5 more songs for the fans. We were within 6-8 feet of the stage so it was very intimate. There was a suspicious 4th blind boy back-up singer who was pretending to be blind with dark glasses but I'm guessing he really wasn't. Kinda shady, But I will still buy the CD. The show airs this Friday the 22nd of October, so be sure to tune in.
