Bridges Hall of Music (Pomona College) with Jackson Browne
BHIC played a rare acoustic set for a sold out crowd of 600 people to culminate the Claremont Folk Festival. Ben opened the show with "Pleasure And Pain" with help from Tom Freund on round neck acoustic guitar and backing vocals. "Steal My Kisses" was played reggae-style for the first time ever. During "Walk Away", Ben played for about 10 seconds, then pulled the cable out of his guitar and brought his chair and guitar to the front of the stage and played the entire song unplugged and without vocal mic!Michael Ward's first full show on guitar with the Innocent Criminals.
