Watch Ben Folds Five perform "One Angry Dwarf & 200 Solemn Faces" live in San Francisco

Ben Folds Five’s first ever live album came out just this week, and The A.V. Club’s got an exclusive video clip of one of the tracks on the record, “One Angry Dwarf & 200 Solemn Faces.” The clip shows the trio in their funky element in San Francisco, with Folds kicking out his stool while playing some of the track’s more complex piano runs.

Ben Folds Five Live was recorded live on tour in 2012-13, while the band was out supporting The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind, its first record in 13 years. The group will be out again later this summer with Barenaked Ladies and Guster for the “Last Summer On Earth 2013” tour, all the dates of which are listed below.
