Ben Kweller Remembers Michael Jackson at House of Blues

Rocks Off just found this video of Dallas-born, Austin-dwelling indie-cum-roots-rocker Ben Kweller dedicating a melancholy piano ballad to the late King of Pop at Thursday night's House of Blues show. Those of you who cheered when Kweller announced "Michael Jackson is gone" can rest assured you're bound for the same circle of hell as the wingnuts who keep posting Michael Jackson jokes in our comments section.
