08.12.13 San Francisco show

by C.Boyd

I a thrilled that you (Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals) didn't forget all of your fans on the west coast. I remember back in 2001 and you were playing at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA and you opened with "God Fearing Man" and It was one of the best sows I have seen although I have seen over 25 shows so it can be hard to pick. But what sticks out in my mind is when you said in between songs that you were ending your year long tour here or in a couple more shows but you announced that this was your favorite place to play. That stuck in my mind and it still does to this day. I don't think that you were putting us on because the crowd went wild and I never forgot the look on your face of pure satisfaction and then sat down and played your heart out to us. Thanks for that moment and hopefully more shows in the San Fancisco Bay area.
