Where are my Dave Matthews Band fans?


Well they are my absolute favorite band. I've seen them about 15 times in concert and to this day I've yet to find another band that can put a show on quite like they do. What I find most impressive about them is not only their unique sound but the fact that they are actually better live than they are on any of their albums. Unlike some bands who rely so much on computer enhancing that when they go on tour they sound completely different and usually worse. I'm hoping that with all this extra money I'll have saved up from not drinking that I can get some PIT seats for when they come to Cincinnati in June.

Any other DMB fans out there?

What are your favorite songs?

Ever gotten a chance to see em live or planning to see them this summer?

Well since I haven't found anyone else out there yet I'll start. If you haven't ever given them a listen try a couple of these songs out. See what you think. You may just end up loving them. Especially look for live versions.

Typical Situation (especially the acoustic version)
Don't Drink the Water
Crush
Warehouse (especially the LIVE at Central Park version)
What Would You Say
Too Much
Tripping Billies
Recently
Dancing Nancies
Big Eyed Fish
Grey Street
Crash Into Me (Yeah it's cliche for us big DMB fans but still a great song)
Seek Up (especially LIVE at Red Rocks)
All Along the Watchtower (Great version. Would make Dylan and Jimi proud)
Ants Marching
Two Step (Almost has to be LIVE. The album version can't touch it especially if you like a good jam session.)
Satellite
Where Are You Going
#41
Cornbread
Cortez the Killer (LIVE at Central Park)

Like I said if you've only heard a couple of there bigger hits like Crush or Crash Into Me and for whatever reason it wasn't your cup of tea or just haven't ever listened to them give a few of these a shot.

Lover Lay Down is a good one. I had almost forgotten about Lousiana Bayou. I don't think I've got that downloaded currently *fires up FrostWire to pirate some more music*.

Anyone else planning on seeing them this summer? I'm hoping to get tickets for each of these shows:
  • Burgettstown, PA (At least one of the shows)
  • Cincinnati, OH
  • West Palm Beach, FL

It's too bad the venue in Columbus closed. They normally always played two shows there but won't be doing any shows there this year. Last year they did play a concert at Columbus Crew Stadium, where the MLS team plays, which was a cool experience. My first stadium concert.

I like Dave Matthews. I saw him in like 2004 in Phoenix, AZ. Slightly Stoopid opened for him.

My favorite songs are: The Last Stop, Two Step, Dancing Nancies, #41, Tripping Billies

My favorite album is Stand Up even though it doesn't get as much credit as his others.

I got the new album a couple weeks ago. I like it. Sweet is fantastic. I think the album is better than Big Whiskey.

I've always respected the fan base that Dave has. My band is 311. I've seen them 14 times. When I tell people that they think its crazy to see someone that much, but it seems Dave fans have seen him 20 times or more. I dig that. Kinda like Phish or Greatful Dead fans.

The camera panned over me in a video shot at the Boulder Theater around 95...

"Busted Stuff" reminds me of the years where I hit rock bottom. But it is still a classic!
