DMB Italian Fansite Founder Dies

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Site News at 2:12pm on Monday, Sep 15th, 2014

Corsina Andriano, founder of the Italian Dave Matthews Band fansite Con-Fusion, has died. The website made the announcement via Facebook account. Corsina also wrote the book DMBook which will be available in English soon.

Corsina was a great DMB fan; very passionate and traveled the world to see them play live. She loved every show she saw, and was a great joy to be around. She was also a friend of all of us here at Antsmarching.org. She will be greatly missed.

AntsMarching.org Bottle Openers Now Available

Posted by Matt Yette in Site News at 1:58pm on Tuesday, Sep 2nd, 2014

If you're here, that likely means a few things: You're a fan of Dave Matthews Band. You're a big enough fan that you're also a member of antsmarching.org. You get thirsty from time to time. You enjoy the occasional (root) beer. Said beverage oftentimes comes in a bottle without a twist-off cap, therefore an opener is required. If all of the above is true, then it is indeed your lucky day.

Introducing the AntsMarching.org Churchkey. A completely custom-made aluminum bottle opener, fit with a matching chain and loop so it can easily attach to your keychain. If you've been a member of the site long enough, you might recall (or even own!) an older AntsMarching.org bottle opener. It was the shape of a key, blue, and simply had our logo and "antsmarching.org" printed on it. For the Churchkey, we wanted to take it to the next level, and oh have we ever. This inaugural edition of the Churchkey sports a dark weathered finish and is the AntsMarching.org logo. That's right, you can literally open your (root) beer with the Ants logo! A small notch at the bottom of the "A" serves as the lip catch to keep the Churchkey small and contained; no long dangling openers hanging from your keychain! We're extremely excited to offer this to our members.

Quantities are extremely limited, so get your order in today!

Live Trax 31 Camden

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases at 9:15am on Monday, Aug 11th, 2014

In case you missed it, yes indeed, Camden can scratch themselves off the 'venues without a release' list. The Official Site announced Live Trax 31 will be a 2001 show from Camden, NJ. It is night 2 of a three-night stand. Making its debut release is The Prelude a piece of music that originally appeared as an intro to Grace is Gone during the Lillywhite Sessions (but did not leak out with the rest of the disc). 2001 isn't recalled as a great tour thanks to the plethora of Everyday songs, but this is up there as one of the best (if not the best) set of the tour. Best of What's Around, JTR, and True Reflections are also on there.

For the 1st time in the Live Trax genera, a bonus disc is available. Comprised of tracks from the prior and next evening at Camden, the bonus disc is pretty special. There's a version of Lover Lay Down that may just be the best released version to date. There's a Captain tease into Too Much - this was before Captain made it into regular rotation so it was a big deal to hear it back then. Also featured is a nifty little truncated Recently. The Pre-order is now - and it's a darn nice release with great performances from the band and some rare songs; even songs not featured often on live releases. Go ahead and order one or two if you have the means.

Blenheim Vineyards Painted Series Vol 1

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Random Appearances at 5:41pm on Wednesday, Jul 23rd, 2014

Dave's fantastic winery, Blenheim Vineyards, is once again running a Dave and Tim music giveaway. As they've done in the past, if you order $50 worth of wine, they'll throw in the limited edition Painted Edition Vol. 1 EP! This year's tracks are Two Step from 3.14.99, Save Me from 7.15.12, and Old Dirt Hill from 7.15.12. The '12 songs are from a nifty little show from upstate New York, and the Two Step is from a beloved 1999 performance in San Rafael, CA.

The Painted Series EP is nice, but really the wine is worth every penny. If you've missed our heaping praise in the past, here's the tl;dnr version: Wine is fantastic. Buy it. Follow either link to order some wine shipped to your door (if you don't live in one of those freak states that doesn't allow wine shipped out of state), or stop by the winery and pick up some! If you're going to the Bristow, VA show Saturday, it's only a bit over an hour away right down 29. Tell em Ants sent ya!

Gorge Caravan Supporting Acts Announced

Posted by Matt Yette in Tour News at 6:18pm on Thursday, Jul 17th, 2014

When the Dave Matthews Band Summer 2014 Tour was announced, it was revealed that The Gorge Amphitheater would once again be receiving the "caravan" treatment; smaller, supporting acts would perform during the day, and DMB would headline the festival, performing each night of the three-night stand. Until now, the details of that lineup have been few and far between. Thanks to the official DMB Caravan site, we now know the list of bands that will be joining DMB on Labor Day Weekend in George, WA.

The main supporting act appears to be Brandi Carlile, who will be appearing daily. Performing on the caravan stage are the following acts: Shovels and Rope, Ana Tijoux, JD McPherson, Bombino, Dumpstaphunk, Moon Taxi, David Ryan Harris, and Betsy Olson.

The site also has a small FAQ addressing topics such as ticket pricing, performance times, and clears up a point of confusion to this point. The caravan was billed as having Dave Matthews Band performing "2 Full Sets Every Night." To this point in the Summer 2014 Tour, fans have become accustomed to seeing an acoustic set of around 8 songs, followed up by a more robust electric set averaging around 18 songs. That verbiage caused speculation that the acoustic sets during the caravan shows would be longer. Speculate no further; the FAQ question asking, "Will Dave Matthews Band perform 2 full sets like other shows on the 2014 summer tour?" (emphasis ours) seems to answer the question. The band considers their current 8 acoustic/18 electric set structure to represent "2 full sets," and it's highly likely the Gorge Caravan set structure will continue that trend.

Ants Gets A Mention in Jacksonville Stream Story

Posted by AntsMarching.org Staff in Site News at 7:15am on Monday, Jul 14th, 2014

Hey, got plans Tuesday night? Yeah, I didn’t think so. Here’s an idea: pick up your favorite shandy on your way home from work, order some delivery, and kick back and watch everybody’s favorite South African native sing and dance live from Jacksonville!

Yahoo! And Live Nation are partnering up and starting this new thing they’re calling Live National Channel on Yahoo! Screen where every night they broadcast one new live concert, free of charge, all year long. Pretty cool, huh? Here’s where it gets better though. It kicks off this Tuesday, July 15th, with the broadcast of A Very Special Evening With Dave Matthews Band live from Jacksonville, Florida.

Click on over to Yahoo Live! where you can set up reminders for your favorite shows (Michael Franti & Spearhead on the 18th!!!), and then be sure to tune in around 7 Eastern on the 18th . Hey, even in the Lovely Ladies guest again, watching the stream reminds DMB just how much of a demand there is for live streams.

And in the lead-up teaser story on Yahoo, they were kind enough to mention antsmarching.org by name! And quote us! The column discusses DMB Fandom - in a semi-positive way. They even included our great quote involving a unicorn and a UFO - so be sure to look for that in the article.

Don't miss the Jacksonville Stream on July 15!

Ants Podcast: Episode 41

Posted by Matt Yette in Podcasts at 4:20pm on Saturday, Jul 12th, 2014

In honor of the longest song the band has ever played live, we figured we would record the longest podcast we've ever recorded! OK not really; we hoped to narrow it down to 41 minutes. Fat chance, that. Anyway, join us as we review the latest shows, take your questions, and even get a live call in from our very own B-rad who was in the pit during the set break!
