Warehouse 10 v 3 Tracklisting Announced

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases at 9:01pm on Wednesday, Feb 18th, 2015

The Warehouse announced the track listing for the 3rd Warehouse 10 disc. You may recall the format expanded from an 5/8 a few years back. The 8/10 disc is as follows:



DIVE IN 6.13.09 Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Saratoga Springs, NY
LET YOU DOWN (acoustic) 2.01.97 Eisenhower Hall, West Point, NY
STOLEN AWAY ON 55TH AND 3RD (acoustic) 7.26.14 Jiffy Lube Live, Bristow, VA
PROUDEST MONKEY 5.30.14 Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Saratoga Springs, NY
BABY BLUE 8.14.10 InTrust Bank Arena, Wichita, KS
PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET (acoustic) 5.31.14 Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Saratoga Springs, NY
BUTTERFLY 9.23.06 John Paul Jones Arena, Charlottesville, VA

and for those with 3+ years...
DANCING NANCIES 6.05.09 Comcast Theatre, Hartford, CT
JIMI THING (acoustic) 2.1.97 Eisenhower Hall, West Point, NY
SAY GOODBYE 7.31.98 Meadows Music Theatre, Hartford, CT

So, if you're not hip to the game, that's 2 songs that are Dave and Tim, with Stefan also on acoustic bass (Let You Down and Jimi Thing). This is the 1st Dave and Tim songs to appear on a Warehouse disc. The Jimi Thing also features What Will Become of Me on the outro. Butterfly was an especially nice version, dedicated to Dave's mom (she was in the crowd somewhere). From the 2014 tour, two songs that were gems of the acoustic tour, Pay For What You Get and Stolen Away get nice multi-track releases. Making it's release debut is Baby Blue; and this one is practically full band with a beautiful accompaniment from Rashawn. And we would be remiss if we didn't mention that Boyd shines on Dive In and Say Goodbye. As always, the announce occurs way before the actual shipping, so it probably won't be in your hands for another month or so, but in the meantime just sit back and ponder the chill nature of the disc.

DMB Heading Back to Europe

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Tour News at 7:12am on Tuesday, Feb 3rd, 2015

The Dave Matthews Band is finally heading back to Europe. For the first time since 2010, DMB jumps the pond to play some shows according to The official site. The European tour begins in October, and the band will be making its first stop in Poland while there. They also hit their usual run of countries, France, Belgium, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, and ultimately in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Additionally, the band will play an extra show in Mexico on March 16 (the day after the previously scheduled show) and for the first time DMB heads to the Middle East. On October 8, DMB heads to the United Arab Emirates for a show in the growing tourist Mecca.

Keep an eye out for ticket info at the main site.

Dave To Raise the 12th Man Flag

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in at 9:16pm on Tuesday, Jan 27th, 2015

Seattle resident Dave Matthews will participate in the raising of the Seattle Seahawks 12th man flag, according to reports. If you're not hip to the fact, Seahawks fans are known as the '12th man' because they're so annoyingly loud it's like they are another player on the field. Pretty creative, ain't it?

The Flag Raising ceremony will be at the Space Needle on January 29 at 9 am. That's Pacific Time since they're on Pacific Time and all. The Seahawks take on the Patriots in the Super Bowl February 1.

UPDATE: Here's the video if you missed it

   
    
   


The New Tour Dates Are Here The New Tour Dates Are Here!

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in at 5:40pm on Tuesday, Jan 13th, 2015

The Warehouse announced the 2015 Dave Matthews Band tour. The dates are a wee bit different than the past 8 or so tours. Of note, Hartford is down to 1 night (not surprisingly), and the deep south gets some DMB Love.

For the first time since 1994 Tuscaloosa, AL gets a show. Believe it or not, that will make the 9th full-band show in T-Town. Tuscaloosa was part of the college-town run the band did in the early days. Iowa gets a DMB show for the first time since 2009, and Rogers, AR is a new stop for the band. This will be only the 3rd DMB show in Arkansas, but the other two were in Little Rock and this one is way the heck up near Feyettenam.

Canada gets 3 shows, Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal. SPAC gets the coveted 4th of July run and Alpine is back, passing over Chicago (woo hoo!). Warehouse Tickets go on sale January 15, the rest of you slugs have to wait around. See you out on the road!

DMB Updates Concert Rules No Signs Allowed

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Tour News at 7:42am on Friday, Jan 9th, 2015

The Warehouse released an email in anticipation of the Dave Matthews Band 2015 tour, and there is one important rule change; no signs.

Yes, there are a few other changes, including a payment plan to facilitate the multi-show attending crowd. Rather than shell out thousands at once to see a show, you can now spread the payments out a bit. Check with the Warehouse for all the intimate details.

But the big one is signs. For years, fans have groaned at signs held up at shows, but people do loVe to bring random signs. the new policy reads as such: Due to a new policy, signs, placards and banners with messages for the band will no longer be allowed at DMB shows. What does it mean? Well, in this exclusive breakdown, Antsmarching.org has learned that it means that signs aren't allowed at shows.

Unfortunately, glowsticks are still OK, so you can't win em all, but it's baby-steps. The DMB #2sets2015 tour dates should be announced... soon.


UPDATE: On January 10, The Warehouse altered the wording to read, To provide a clear, unobstructed view for all fans, large signs will no longer be allowed at DMB shows. We aren't surprised by this, unless you've been the one holding up signs fans have been complaining about signs for years. It just got out of control.

2015 DMB Tour to be 2 Sets

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Tour News at 7:25am on Friday, Jan 2nd, 2015

In case you missed the New Year's Day email from The Warehouse, the Dave Matthews Band is indeed touring in 2015 (duh). And as was the case in 2014, the band will play 2 sets. If you need a refresher course - in 2014 the band played an acoustic opener and took a little (long) break and played an electric set. Fans were eager for the opportunity to catch some tunes in a new environment, but as the best laid plans of mice and men go, that didn't exactly work out.

Of course, the announcement is simply "2 sets" - not specifying one acoustic and one electric, so it's premature to completely bash the 2015 tour as a good idea on paper that shan't execute live (although that hasn't stopped some). Until there's a bit more defining of "2 sets", fans can only speculate if it'll be Stolen Away acoustic, Minarets opener, and Good Good Time in the encore or if the mold shall be shattered.

Tour dates - if the trend holds - should arrive in the middle of January. So be on the lookout for that.

Live Trax 32 is a 2014 Show

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases at 5:22pm on Thursday, Nov 6th, 2014

The Warehouse announced the next in the Dave Matthews Band Live Trax Series, Live Trax 32. The show is Night 2 from Berkley, CA.

There are 2 add-ons; the entire show is available in a CD/DVD combo, so you'll be able to sit back and watch the show and the lovely Greek Theatre backdrop. Additionally, there is a bonus disc of tracks compiled from Night's 1 and 3 - 8-tracks if you're in the Warehouse. The acoustic set from night 2 is pretty sweet; including Rhyme and Reason, Ants Marching, and Recently. Lover Lay Down highlights the electric set; it only received 5 plays in 2014. The encore features the newly (greatly) improved Space Betwixt, fan favorite Granny, and Rapunzel. It's a nice show overall with a great acoustic set.

You can pre-order now. And as usual there's some swag to go along with it, including an awesome t-shirt featuring Stefan's Set List doodle.

Blenheim Painted Series Available for Pre-Order

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Band Brand at 8:09pm on Monday, Oct 20th, 2014

The fabulous Painted series from Blenheim Vineyards is available for pre-order now! The wines - with bottles designed by Dave Matthews - this is his original winery located on the outskirts of Charlottesville near Thomas Jefferson's home - are a popular fall release from the vineyard. This year Dave has taken the selfie to a new level.

You can order an array of the wines; including the Painted White bundled in with the Red (or reds). You can additionally order some of their very comfortable shirts or posters in addition to the wines. 20 random orders will be selected to receive a hand-drawn handbill by Dave himself, so get your order in and enjoy this delicious wine!

Under The Table and Dreaming comes to Vinyl

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Album News at 7:30am on Friday, Oct 10th, 2014

The age of vinyl is upon us, apparently. The official site announced Under The Table and Dreaming, the Dave Matthews Band first major label record, will be released in a 20th anniversary deluxe vinyl on November 24. There are a number of order packages, including a throw rug, t-shirts, and the usual suspects, but the true value is in the additional tracks.

The release features the original studio cut of Granny; that was one of the songs recorded in the studio and left off the album. Also, acoustic versions of Song That Jane Likes and Dancing Nancies are included. Those originally appeared on a radio-promo from 1994 and prior to that were on the often mislabeled Quad Demos and Rutabaga Demos.
Pre-order is now. So what are you waiting for? Pre-order!
