Dave Matthews Band Live at West Palm Beach!

Posted by austinburns on August 13, 2006

Awesome two shows at West Palm Beach for the Dave Matthews Band! Highlights include a Proudest Monkey >> Satellite, and the last half of the first night. Last Stop, Pig, Can’t Stop, Crush, Everyday, Ants Marching. Nice way to close.

The second night was good, too. JTR, Grey Street, Break Free, Bayou, Jimi Thing, So Much to Say >> Anyone Seen the Bridge? >> Too Much. Too Much has a great little ditty in the middle when the horn section slows everything down. Encore with Sister and American Baby Intro >> Two Step.

The only complaint was how hot it was. I started up a nice Two Step chant after Sister finished and the rest of the band was walking back on stage. It looks like it was already on the setlist, though, so I don’t think I swayed the band.

Our last show is also the band’s last show. Charlottesville, VA on Sept. 23. Can’t wait.

Dave Matthews Band Live at Randall’s Island!

Posted by austinburns on August 10, 2006

Ash and I went up to NYC last weekend to catch both of the DMB concerts at Randall’s Island. They were amazing! The first night we caught Gov’t Mule’s opening set, and it was pretty good. Warren Haynes came out later to guest with DMB, and I thought they were going to play Jimi Thing, but they started into Cortez the Killer, an awesome cover of a Neil Young tune. Great version. Later on in the show, they started playing #41, and I about shit myself when Béla Fleck came out. Then I actually did shit myself when the rest of the Flecktones came out. They churned out a near half-hour long #41, then went straight into Ants Marching. Crazy.

The next day, we went sightseeing around the city. It was the first time Ash had been there. We went to Times Square, the Empire State Building, the Flatiron Building, the WTC site, we saw the Statue of Liberty from Battery Park, saw Grand Central Station, and walked through Central Park. For the two nights we were there, we stayed in a hostel on the upper west side. We had our own room (bunk beds), and we shared a bathroom with ~10 people. The only that sucked is that they never had towels. Only $100 for two people for two nights. Not a bad deal.

The second night we had seats, so that was good. Our dogs were barking from walking around the city all day. Béla came out again for Lie in Our Graves and the rest of the ‘Tones came out on Jimi Thing. Another great concert. These were probably the best two concerts I’ve seen, and I’ve been to 10 or so DMB concerts. It was so awesome to see both my favorite bands share the stage. When the Flecktones were up there, there were 11 people on stage! That’s insane!

The great thing is, we are going to see DMB again this Friday and Saturday down in West Palm. Can’t wait for those shows, too!

New DMB song!

Posted by austinburns on June 3, 2006

Woohoo! This is what I love about tour time! New Dave Matthews Band song! If anyone stumbles onto this site, here's a URL for an mp3 of the song: (Since this is an mp3, it goes without saying that you shouldn't trade this around without mentioning that it's an mp3, ok?)

The Idea of You

It's a pretty good song, too. I can't wait to see what they do with it!

Happy days are here again, my friend.
