Ants Podcast 63 - A Van Down by the Warehouse

Posted by Matt Yette in Podcasts at 7:51pm on Sunday, Mar 20th, 2016

What a week in DMB! The band hits a major milestone with the 25th anniversary of their very first concert, and on top of that we get an amazing treat, Recently from that first show. And if that wasn’t enough, the “Pink Warehouse Video” curiously emerges and the debate is rampant.  We take all your comments in both the video debate and the Song Series, and finish with #AntsPodcast questions. Hang on for a fun one!

While Apple's built in Podcast app is a great app for listening to the Ants Podcast, an alternative that some might enjoy has emerged: Overcast. Overcast is a great, free podcast app that has gained a lot of popularity since its release. If you're looking for another app for your Ants Podcast fix, give it a try!

Ants Podcast 61 - Back on Trax

Posted by Matt Yette in Podcasts at 6:07pm on Saturday, Mar 5th, 2016

Last week we impatiently gushed about the upcoming Live Trax 37 deep archive pull, but in the meantime DMB has given us a new old-school DMBLive release.  The guys talk about the significance of the show, and a deeper look into the past week’s Song Series of I’ll Back You Up.  Plus this week’s song sends the guys down memory lane, along with your listener questions. Featured Music: Lillywhite Sessions - Big Eyed Fish & JTR

As always, this week's episode is available on Stitcher, which is an awesome app for podcasts if you aren't familiar. If you don't have one of those iPhone things, it's likely the best way to listen on the go! Of course, it's also listed on iTunes as well. Do us a favor and rate & review us on the iTunes store to get us up on top of the charts! Free to share your thoughts in the discussion thread, as well. (Click the comments bubble below)

DMBLive Series Visits Trax

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases at 6:19pm on Thursday, Mar 3rd, 2016

The popular 2-track recording series DMBLive is back with another great release. Dave Matthews Band cut their teeth playing weekly shows in Charlottesville at the Trax Nightclub. By 1994 the band was destined for stardom and outgrew their old stomping ground. The last full-band show at Trax was 2.22.94, and the powers that be chose this as the latest DMBLive. The show should be slightly familiar to fans; two tracks were previously released on the Recently EP; All Along the Watchtower and Halloween.

You can order this little piece of history right here. The entire show is pretty sweet; the Ants Marching has a nice little jam on the front of it that fans used to call "Funky Jam" back in the tape trading days. So if you're on the fence still about the DMBLive series, this is a pretty good time to jump in the pool and give it a shot.

Ants Podcast 60 - Live Trax, Not Live Flood Zone

Posted by Matt Yette in Podcasts at 6:48pm on Sunday, Feb 28th, 2016

The boys dive into what it takes to get yourself a music-related Oscar, given that this week's episode is counter-programmed against the big show. That's ok, the Nielsen ratings support us. Live Trax 37 is a big one, and corrects the record in Tour Central for a rare stump of Jake! We close out with tons of listener questions; we love them, thank you! Featured Music: 7.28.94 - One Sweet World, 7.22.94 - Say Goodbye

As always, this week's episode is available on Stitcher, which is an awesome app for podcasts if you aren't familiar.

Live Trax 37 is the Earliest Multi to Date

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases at 5:57pm on Thursday, Feb 25th, 2016

In the 25th anniversary year of Dave Matthews Band, the Live Trax folk went way way back to celebrate the band. Live Trax 37 is 11.11.92 from Trax. The show is so old that both antsmarching.org and dmbalmanac had the venue listed incorrectly; as The Flood Zone instead of Trax.

The set list is fantastic. Early versions of Minarets, So Much To Say, and the only multi-track recording of Spotlight are gems from this one. Also included is Halloween, which debuted only 10 days before this show. This show is an absolute must-own!

Also of note is the swag. The poster is fantastic. The t-shirt is awesome. Everything about this release is pretty sweet. We're not telling you how to spend your money but at least click on the link to see what you're missing.

Ants Podcast 59 - Drinkers and Brokers

Posted by Matt Yette in Podcasts at 9:45am on Monday, Feb 22nd, 2016

Out with one target (The Warehouse), and in with a new one (Ticketmaster). With public on-sale for the Summer 2016 Tour this past Friday, most of us got to relive the anguish of ticket confirmation day all over again. After we contemplate, and eventually dismiss, a mutiny, we all settle in and accept that the laws of supply and demand have us by our wallets. A sneak peak at our latest "In the Spotlight" release and listener questions round out this "short" episode. Featured Music: 6.19.00 - Sweet Up & Down, 12.20.03 - Blue Cross Arena - Dodo

Ants Podcast 58 - This Warehouse Frightens Me (See I'm Leaving)

Posted by Matt Yette in Podcasts at 12:01pm on Monday, Feb 15th, 2016

Valentine's Day 2016 brought a lot of love this year in terms of Warehouse ticket confirmations; or did it? As always, it's a contentious topic and this year especially so, with the tour-less 2017 looming just over the horizon. We've got the stats to break down on just how likely you were to score some seats through the lottery, and you may be surprised to see how your tenure in the Warehouse affects the likelihood. Featured Music: 5.10.95 - Yoshi's - #40, 6.1.13 - Blossom - Belly Belly Nice

As always, this week's episode is available on Stitcher, which is an awesome app for podcasts if you aren't familiar.

In the Spotlight: Volume II

Posted by Matt Yette in In the Spotlight at 12:39pm on Thursday, Feb 11th, 2016

With our recent announcement (you listen to the Ants Podcast, don't you?) of over 1300 shows now available to download at Ants, we wanted to take things to the next level. What good are all those shows if you don't know which ones to listen to? Enter our resident Setlist Expert, Jake Vigliotti. Jake has spent countless hours listening to various live shows in the band's catalog and has unique insight in recommending performances that the community might find interesting. With that in mind, we are proud to (re-)announce our “In the Spotlight” series. Our first entry, made years ago, was the 5.10.95 show at Yoshi's, and that particular performance has been downloaded over 8,000 times since being spotlighted. Now, for Volume II, we are excited to announce 3.8.94 from Fox Theatre in Boulder, Colorado. Jake provides additional detail on this particular show:

This show was unknown until discovered early 2006. What seemingly was just a typical 1994 DMB show held a gem; a completely unknown song. Still mourning the loss of his sister Anne, Dave wrote a song that nostalgically looked back at his relationship with her, recalling the playful moments. The analog fan tape labeled the song "Sister," so that's what we called it…Until about twelve years later when Dave debuted a song called "Sister". The two bare no resemblance. To ease confusion, this one is referred to as "Sister-94". Give this show a download to hear a unique take at a DMB show from the club era.

Volume II of our "In the Spotlight" series can be downloaded through our Downloads Area, or by browsing to the Torrent Thread on the message boards. If you're new to BitTorrent and need assistance downloading, there's a FAQ for that.
