Ben Kweller, 17th November 2006, Concorde 2 Brighton
Ben Kweller made his early name as the fifteen year old front man of grunge band Radish. That might have been over 10 years ago but even these days he still comes across on stage like some teenage musical prodigy who grew his hair and ran away from the academy to join a rock'n'roll band.
In case you've not had the pleasure, Ben Kweller's music varies from gentle folky-tinged numbers to hard-edged rock. To me his stuff is reminiscent of Brendan Benson, sharing the same kind of lyrical strength and similiar musical sensibilities.
An engaging frontman and natural performer for the many solo numbers, Kweller also showed himself to be a personable guy possessed of a fine sense of humour, like when his '2 million pound' amp fell off the back of the stage, reducing its sound qualities to those of a 'one million pound' one.
