Who: Many times, honesty can break your heart. Sometimes, that’s exactly what you need. Songwriter Ben Ballinger knows how to hit that raw nerve, bearing his soul with no hesitation. Give a listen to The State I’m In (2014) and Fabrication (2011), and you’ll discover that both are shooting directly from the heart.
What: This is definitely a performance you’ll want to experience live, and this evening presents a lovely opportunity to do so.
When and where: Tonight, 9 p.m., at Stay Gold, 1910 E. Cesar Chavez
Why: Such a perfect spot with an intimate atmosphere. Ballinger’s candor will blow you away. Recommended.
