Into the Folds
In 1995, Ben Folds Five reminded everyone that the piano was, in fact, an aggressive rock 'n' roll instrument. Folds proved you didn't have to play "Piano Man" to get listeners to ditch the usual six-string for a while and pay attention, rock out even, to the keys. Then came "Brick" (off Whatever and Ever Amen) and conservative frat boys everywhere were allowed to become sensitve rockers, singing arm-in-arm about abortion. Folds (long ago losing the Five) has even worked with William Shatner (Fear of Pop, Volume 1 and a commercial). Needless to say, he's done a lot for contemporary music. See for yourself 7:30 p.m. Tuesday when Ben Folds plays Will Rogers Auditorium in Fort Worth. Corn Mo opens. Tickets are $29.50. Call 214-373-8000 or visit ticketmaster.com.
