He opened for Ben Folds in Utica... I guess as just a tune-up for a later tour because it was just that one gig, I mean, who's going to notice if you're a little rusty in... Utica?
Just blew the roof off the Stanley Theatre (which is a lot like the Count Basie if it were a tad smaller) but there was one drunken hick yelling "fag!" between songs.
And then everyone would boo and he'd yell "fag!"
Until after the boos were loud enough, Rufus... really cheerfully:
"Oh my GOD, Sherlock, how did you figure THAT one out?!"
Really really awesome performer, funny too.
I think Folds threw a chair at the homophobe later.
