Anyone know what the 2 Sets will look like?

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Columns at 7:54am on Wednesday, Apr 9th, 2014

As of this moment, we, the fan, don't know what the trending #2sets planned for Dave Matthews Band's 2014 tour will look like. There's been a lot of rumor, theory, and downright conjecture. The truth of the matter is we live in a society that likes the option to click on the "Spoiler" button and find out the info for ourselves.

We don't have a true spoiler, but we have a pretty good hypothesis on how things will shake down come the 2014 tour. Our very own "Arby" (not affiliated with the roast beef giant) walks us through some likely scenarios on how 2014 shakes out.

New DMB Book - in Italian

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Band Brand at 7:32am on Tuesday, Apr 8th, 2014

There is a new book about the Dave Matthews Band available, but it's only in Italian for now. Corsina Andriano, who runs the Italian DMB fan site Con-Fusion wrote a comprehensive book about the band. The book is being hailed as the most comprehensive on the band ever written (you can read an English synopsis here.

If you're pretty good at Italian (or just watched The Godfather so much you can capisce) you can pre-order the book here. The book will be translated into English "soon", but the English version is not available yet. You can keep checking back here and we'll update when it's available. Corsina really knows her DMB, so it's one of (if not the) most info-packed books on the band ever.

Boyd Mentions Monkey Man for Summer 2014!

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Tour News at 7:56am on Friday, Mar 28th, 2014

Boyd gave an extensive interview Jambands, and talked about the old days, Roi, and the upcoming 2014 tour. At one point, the conversation meandered to The Lillywhite Sessions and Monkey Man. We won't spoil the answer here, but lets just say it's not out of the question that Dave Matthews Band breaks out Monkey Man this summer. The interview is fantastic; take a few minutes and read the whole thing. It will give you a pretty good introspective of the band and where they are now, and how songs are formed.

Tweets For Tracks, BT, and Strips

Posted by Sean Balogh in Live Releases at 8:38pm on Thursday, Mar 20th, 2014

While during the summer members of DMB may be busy men on tour, they don't like to rest during the off season. Most recently Stefan's been writing the score for a soon-to-be-released documentary Stripped, a love letter of sorts to comic strips. While the film itself looks riveting (they even scored an interview with the previously private Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson, and convinced him to draw the cover art for his first released drawing since ending Calvin and Hobbes in 1995), Stefan touched upon his bandmate Rashawn Ross and noted friend Mike McCready from Pearl Jam to lend a hand with the the scoring. This is not Stefan's first tryst with scoring films, he also scored 2008's documentary Grand Canyon Adventure: River At Risk. The film will be released April 1st on iTunes or on DVD April 2nd.

Not one to be outdone, Boyd will be playing a series of shows prior to his departure for DMB's Australia gigs. April 2-5, Boyd has been invited to play with Phil Lesh and Friends, the celebrated group featuring the former Grateful Dead bassist, at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY (just a hop skip and a jump away for all you NYC-area ants). Tickets are available here.

But Wait! There's more! If you Tweet out from the this DMB re-tweeter, you get access to two exclusive tracks; one acoustic and 1 electric! We won't spoil the surprise by telling you it's Grey Street Dave and Tim and So Right full-band, you'll have to figure that out after you tweet. So Tweet away!

Live Trax 29 Now Available

Posted by Sean Balogh in Live Releases at 1:57pm on Friday, Mar 14th, 2014

It's here! That's right, 2014 is still young and the first 2013 release is on it's way already. DMB's one night stand from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio is getting released as Live Trax 29, and man is it a packed show. Featuring the first Dancing Nancies opener since 2008 and seguing into Warehouse for the first time in 17 years, a lovely rendition of Oh off Dave's 2003 solo project Some Devil, the first time Kill The Preacher surfaced in it's current (and seemingly permanent) form, a mid-set Big Eyed Fish > Bartender, and the Live Trax debuts of Gaucho, Belly Belly Nice, and Rooftop, this release looks like it should be a slam dunk.

Get your order on here. Your format options include CD, MP3, and FLAC in both 16- and 24-bit releases.

Warehouse 7/10 Vol. 2 is spectacular

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases at 7:54pm on Friday, Mar 7th, 2014

The Warehouse announced the latest volume in their live-release series, Volume 2 7/10. Fans with 3+ years get the 10, and the rest of the newbees get the 7. The added gift are Firedancer earbuds (which actually sounds pretty cool). Fans with 15+ years in also get a Ticket Collector album (which is even better). But lets get to the real news; the songs this year are amazing. They are...

  • GOOD GOOD TIME 7.10.04 Hersheypark Stadium, Hershey, PA
  • BELLY BELLY NICE 9.7.12 Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre, Chula Vista, CA with Lasim Richards
  • LIE IN OUR GRAVES >> 9.27.94 McIntire Amphitheater, Charlottesville, VA
  • MINARETS 9.27.94 McIntire Amphitheater, Charlottesville, VA
  • LOVER LAY DOWN 10.29.98 San Jose Arena, San Jose, CA
  • ROOFTOP 5.22.13 Austin360 Amphitheater, Austin, TX
  • BLUE WATER >> DRUNKEN SOLDIER 6.26.13 Nikon at Jones Beach Theater, Wantagh, NY
  • And the 3 + years add
  • WAREHOUSE 9.20.00 Sandstone Amphitheatre, Bonner Springs, KS
  • SPOON 6.22.13 Klipsch Music Center, Noblesville, IN with Brandi Carlile
  • DRIVE IN, DRIVE OUT 9.17.11 DMB Caravan: Randallís Island Park New York, NY

If you're not familiar with the 2000 Warehouse(s), you're in for a treat; they are very solid with outstanding intros from Stefan and Roi's outro solos (like this one released) are excellent. Speaking of Roi, he handles the solo on Lie In Our Graves (Boyd took over in 1996 on the solos), and on Lover Lay Down, you'll hear a little interpolation of "Over The Rainbow" from Mr. Moore. And finally, the Cult of Good Good Time can finally stop asking for their favorite version of the song to be released.

This is easily a top-3 Warehouse disc. It should ship in April or May.

DMBLive 3.3.99 Dave and Tim!

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases at 5:25pm on Tuesday, Jan 14th, 2014

The Last Stop! Dave and Tim! OMFG! AHHHHHH! BEST DAY EVER!! The Last Stop!

OMG! Can't believe it! The Last Stop!

(that means the latest DMBLive release is 3.3.99, from the 1999 Dave and Tim tour. If I Had A Boat, Wild Horses, Halloween, I'll Back You Up, and Stay (in that crazy 6/8 time) are among the notables. I think Last Stop was played too, not too sure... have to double check on that.)
