We're a little worried about the poster promoting the new Ben Folds tour. The piano man is sporting a keytar, a keyboard that's worn like a guitar. Hey, we get it: It's hard to connect with the crowd when you're stuck behind the ivories, but we just can't imagine hearing "Brick" or "Fred Jones Part 2" in an, um, Oingo-Boingo fashion. (Nothing against OB, Danny Elfman is a genius). So, Ben, at the show today, jam and jump with your portable piano, but please, when you get to the more serious numbers, have a seat. Missy Higgins is also on the bill. 7:30 p.m. Warehouse Live, 813 St. Emanuel. For tickets and information, call 713-225-5483 or visit www.warehouselive.com. $32.
