More Information Regarding the Sweet Briar College release

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases at 6:09am on Thursday, Jul 28th, 2016

The first CD release of a Dave Matthews solo performance is now available for Pre-Order. We wanted to provide a little more info for you about this special release. The show, Dave performing solo at Sweet Briar College on 4.14.96 is a special one. And the release is just as special as net proceeds go directly to the small college to help offset their operating cost. Basically you're helping to keep this small women's liberal arts college from closing; they were on the brink of shutting down but 2016 has seen a tremendous increase in applicants.

If you're on the fence about this one, there is a song sample available; Dancing Nancies - which sounds fantastic. The set features a couple of gems in there too; Angel From Montgomery, #36, and Blue Water Baboon Farm stand out as the rarities, plus some songs you just don't ever hear from Dave solo; Jimi, Two Step, Seek Up, So Much To Say. We're not telling you that you have to buy it, we're just saying it's a special show and the money goes to a good cause. The choice is yours.



Chickapig Game Launches

Posted by Joe M in Band Collaborators at 7:18pm on Wednesday, Jul 27th, 2016

It seems we always get one-of-two questions when we talk about or play Chickapig. 1) What the heck is Chickapig!? Or 2) How can I get one for myself!? Cant lie, we also went through the same two questions/phases. Once we learned about Chickapig and how to play we wanted one of our own. But whenever someone asked us how they could get their own, there wasnt a way; that is until today! So for everyone thats been asking, today Chickapig is finally making its first debut to the world via a Chickapig Kickstarter campaign!

You may have heard us mention Chickapig on the Ants Podcast, or at our Charlottesville Night Zero party, or at Ants tailgates across the summer. But what exactly is Chickapig? In short, its a board game with a bit of strategy and a lot of fun. (What other game has a tagline of Dont Poop In My Goal. ha) Be the first to get your Chickapigs through your goal, bouncing off of hay bales, opponents Chickapigs and a pooping cow. The game was created by Brian Calhoun, the co-founder of Rockbridge Guitars (the maker of Daves guitars) and cohort in the famous slap video. He introduced and played the game around the Charlottesville area for some time. Including playing with Dave Matthews and Fenton Williams (heard of them?) who eventually helped to bring the game to life.

The Chickapig launch page is offering up t-shirts and the very first editions of the game. They have a Kickstarter goal of getting $30,000 pledged and as of writing this article, less than 12 hours from launch, the game has already received pledges of $26,000. If youd like to be part of the first launch of potentially the next biggest board game, head over to the Chickapig Kickstarter page now. We love ourselves a game of Chickpig. (Any challengers?) A perfect paced, competitive and fun game for hanging around and enjoying some tasty beverages (we enjoy a social drink anytime someone goes through a goal or through poop.) #dontpoopinmygoal

   
    
   


Ants Podcast 79: Free as in Beer

Posted by Matt Yette in Podcasts at 9:48am on Tuesday, Jul 12th, 2016

The boys get a special delivery in the mail to kick off this podcast and set the mood to talk D&T CMAC plus DMB Columbus and Pittsburgh shows. Dodo doesnt make an appearance which forces the guys to debate what theyd consider success in the #freedodo movement. Time to drop some game on the setlists (ie setlist game results), and your user questions see doughboy answers (and we dont mean Jake.)

Ants Podcast 78: Club Wasted

Posted by Matt Yette in Podcasts at 10:04am on Tuesday, Jul 5th, 2016

When 2/3rds of the Ants Crew is together, a live podcast is nearly a must. Thusly, Matt and Joe broadcast live from the basement of the Jensen's, also known as Club Wasted, and do so with a sizeable studio audience in tow as well. Both nights of Alpine are reviewed in depth, and yes, we talk about that Dodo tease. Jake joins us via Skype to varying degrees of success, but hey, isn't that the fun of it? A rapid-fire, Periscope-style edition of the Ants Podcast. Enjoy!

Ants Podcast 77 - 3 debuts and 2 nights

Posted by Matt Yette in Podcasts at 5:18am on Tuesday, Jun 28th, 2016

Dave Matthews Band reached the first two-night stand of the year; in Camden. What would that mean for the sets? What would that mean for the two shows before Camden? With Matt off saving Mother England, Joe M and Jake take a shot at making sense of what it all means. The debuts, the new song, the new venues, plus your Setlist Game recaps and of course the user questions via Twitter. The only thing longer than this write up is Jake and Joe's rambling; without Matt to reign them in this podcast is one of the longest ever! Sit back and take a listen. Break Song: Plastic Girl

Ants Podcast 76: Live Demos II?

Posted by Matt Yette in Podcasts at 7:49am on Tuesday, Jun 21st, 2016

With only two Virginia shows since our last episode, there are fewer shows to talk about (and even fewer songs), but plenty of speculation to bandy about. Brady Blade lets one slip on another podcast that sets the community ablaze regarding a possible new Dave solo effort in 2017. The battle for the top of the Setlist Game table gets even hotter, and we take your questions!

Crash Vinyl and Live Trax 38 details

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases at 2:51pm on Tuesday, Jun 14th, 2016

The official Dave Matthews Band site announced two great releases; Crash on Vinyl and Live Trax 38. They both go hand-in-hand in a way. Allow us to explain all the releases and swag associated with this.

The Crash vinyl is two 180 gram vinyl records - (that's on the heavy side if you're not a vinyl guru). Three songs a side recorded from the original analog tapes. What that means is that Crash will sound AWESOME. Loud, clear, like nothing you've heard before. You can package that with a plethora of stuff, including Live Trax 38. The aforementioned Live Trax is from the release year of Crash; 1996, June 8 at SPAC. The setlist is Crash heavy with some outstanding performances from one of the band's favorite venues. You can order either, or both. You could order neither too but that would be just plain silly.

There is another option - Amazon. The super-website offers a slightly different Crash vinyl; 150 gram vinyl discs with a fancy design on them. The Splatter Color vinyl really aren't that much of a difference from the 180 gram version available from the DMB site. Regardless, the splatter color vinyl is available here.

We're not going to tell you how to spend your money, but you can always buy all three. It is worth noting that there are no bonus tracks available on Crash; so what you get it just the straight original release on a great sounding vinyl. You can consider Live Trax 38 the bonus if you'd like.

Ants Podcast 75: D-iamond Anniversary

Posted by Matt Yette in Podcasts at 8:10am on Tuesday, Jun 14th, 2016

Reunited and it feels so good! Matt returns this week to once again join Joe and Jake, and boy are the latter two sorry for it. All recent shows recapped, and that includes discussion of the recent setlist lull the tour has been experiencing. Joe absolutely butchers yet another Twitter user's name, and also forces our hand in tagging this episode as explicit. We bum rush the Setlist Game and some awesome user questions.

Ants Podcast 73: Hello Kansas City!

Posted by Matt Yette in Podcasts at 2:37pm on Monday, May 30th, 2016

Four new shows on this podcast; a mid-week Birmingham, then a 3-state-consecutive-run through (the not cancelled) Charlotte, Atlanta, and St. Louis (or was it Kansas City?) We get "horny" as we break down each show in depth, including the new song debuts, some new guests, and show flow data that is telling an interesting story. Also, whats the biggest surprise after this first part of the tour? Then after a Raven break, we touch on projects from Stefans son (Diggy) and Mark Roebuck (not related), setlist game top players (we have some exceptional shot-callers), and your listener questions (correct pronunciations included.)
