Escaped the hubbub of LA and headed down to Del Mar to see Ben Harper.
It was a breath of fresh air to see a concert outside the city: much less of a to-do. Everything was so easy and there was a mellow, beachy vibe. Speaking of the crowd, a word of advice: disregard the one girl rolling on ecstasy. What is this a bad Heather Graham movie?
The set was patient too, beginning with extended versions of “Faded” and “Lay There and Hate Me.” We’re talking epic departures, where you forget what song they’re even playing kinda thing.
Check out a few of the stunners: the first is exemplary of his grace; the second one killed – major pinnacle within the set; and the third buckled my knees – what a jam!
