The last time I saw Ben(jamin) perform was at a Town Hall tribute to the late Leonard Cohen, wherein local luminaries covered folk classics that made a chapel full of adults rock with silent sobs for two straight hours. Hopefully this performance will be less of a wake, but just as honest, warm, and generous as Ben’s Cohen interpretations were that night. He’ll be joined by singer-songwriter and frequent Jenny Lewis collaborator Johnathan Rice, whose song “So Sweet” appeared on 2004’s Music From The OC: Mix 2 … and no, I’m not ashamed to say that’s why I know who he is.
