Critics' Pick: Ben Folds at Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall

by

comment

[POP] + SUN., OCT. 22

Ben Folds is one of those ubiquitous artists; it feels like he’s always been around and always will be. Since the mid-’90s, he’s been making piano-driven pop songs fit for a romantic-dramedy soundtrack — playing in the montage where the characters fall in love, or the one where they’re walking alone in the rain. His current venture, “Paper Airplane Request Tour,” encourages fans to send song requests on stage via paper airplane, which is an interesting experiment in trusting your fans. He’ll play Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall with electro-folk duo Tall Heights, whose music would make the perfect soundtrack for the adventures of a woodland creature.

8 p.m. 510 East 10th Ave., Munhall. $49-269. All ages. 877-987-6487 or www.librarymusichall.com
