5. Ben Folds at the Meyer

Ben Folds, the talented genre-bending musician, is coming to Green Bay! Noted as a major music influencer, he's known for his work in the Ben Folds Five, as well his music combining piano and orchestra. A personal favorite of mine is You Don't Know Me, featuring Regina Spektor. To get a preview of his talent, click here to watch his NPR Tiny Desk Concert.

Folds is set to take the stage at the Meyer this Saturday, October 19th at 8 p.m. For tickets and details, head to the Meyer Theatre website.
