Ants Podcast 56 - What Will Become of 2017?

Posted by Matt Yette in Podcasts at 12:27pm on Monday, Feb 1st, 2016

With the Summer 2016 tour dates dropping along with the news about the 2017 hiatus, we couldn't wait to record another episode. And, true to form, this is (say it with me) our "longest episode yet!(TM)" We dive into the tour dates, what the hiatus may mean for the band, whether it really *is* a "hiatus", and of course reveal the winner of Volume III of our Song Series. This episode is nearly two hours long, so Dive In(TM)! Featured Music: 12.31.1992 - Spotlight, 12.07.1995 - Too Much, 09.24.1995 - What Will Become of Me?

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)

2016 Summer Tour Dates Announced; 2017 Hiatus

Posted by Matt Yette in Tour News at 1:18pm on Monday, Jan 25th, 2016



Dave Matthews Band has (finally) announced plans for their 25th anniversary tour. The 46-stop jaunt kicks off in Wichita, KS and rounds out with a three-night stand at The Gorge.

Equally noteworthy, however, is the news that the band will "take a break from touring in 2017." Whether this indicates a 2011-style break, or will actually be the first show-free year in the band's existence is up for speculation at this point. Keep up with Tour Central throughout the day as we'll have the shows entered into the database shortly! In the meantime, join the discussion on the Ants Forums.

Ants Podcast 55 - Early DMB, Early Ants, Late Dates

Posted by Matt Yette in Podcasts at 11:08pm on Sunday, Jan 24th, 2016

The guys are wound up in this week's cast!  A little drinking, a little hacking and as usual some strong opinions. They dig deep into DMB’s early days thanks to an old Charlottesville newspaper article titled “Idiot's Guide to DMB”. Plus your questions take the discussion to the early days of the website. Oh, and speaking of early, the same can’t be said about the tour dates, but that doesn’t stop the debate. Also a bit of history on #34 and the results from the Song Series fan vote. Enjoy! Featured Music: Code Magenta - Code Magenta (Early 90’s LeRoi band(trio)/song.)

Ants Podcast 53 - 2015 is a Wrap, Let Us Discuss

Posted by Matt Yette in Podcasts at 10:38pm on Tuesday, Jan 12th, 2016

2016 is here and it’s just about the most wonderful time of the year… tour date release time. But before we do that, 2015 needs a proper send off, and some speculation on what 2016 will bring. We kick things off with a review of Europe and the unique sets/shows/venues the band played, then we take an in depth look at 2015 tour attendance numbers, and close out with your twitter questions. A bit of built up tension gets released too. Featured: Dreamed I Killed God, Everyday (with Matisyahu)

DMBLive series moves to 1998

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in at 7:05pm on Wednesday, Dec 9th, 2015

The popular DMBLive series has crept closer to the modern DMB era. 11.30.98 marks the latest full-band show in the 2-track DMBLive series to date. The excellent show - which also features a hidden JTR tease - is an excellent jam fest. Opening with The Last Stop, with Bela Fleck guesting, and running through Warehouse in the encore this baby's got more hits than a Hall and Oates show.

I realize we say this a lot but if you're not on board with the DMBLive series yet this is the time to take the plunge and give it a shot. Excellent show, excellent era, excellent addition to the DMBLive family. Go download it!

The Fantastic Blenheim Vineyards is back with their annual Painted Wines series. The 2014 grapes were perfect and the latest batch is sure to please the pallet.

This year, Blenheim will match dollar-for-dollar ever purchase made during the pre-order and donate that to The African Wildlife Federation's rhinoceros conservation. So unless you're C. Montgomery Burns with your snazzy slippers there's no real reason to not get your pre-order on!

Live Trax 36 & Record Store Day Coming Soon

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases at 6:04pm on Thursday, Oct 29th, 2015

Live Trax 36 is from the 2015 tour. Alpine N2 is the latest in the Live Trax release family. The show - which features the triumphant return of Let You Down - is one of the best from the 2015 tour. The crowd was quite lively for the show as well - which included a Thank You performance that was sparked by fans singing it during the outro of #41 (should've chanted Last Stop instead but oh well...). There is a plethora of options at the link above to order, including a DVD of the show. The bonus disc is tracks from n1, and MAKE SURE YOU ORDER FROM The Warehouse so you can get the additional Warehouse member tracks. That's how you can get that fantastic Captain from n1. You are a member of the Warehouse, right? Now would be a good time to join. Seriously.

Record Store Day is Black Friday. That's the day after Thanksgiving in case you forgot (you didn't). the DMB contribution this year is Live Trax 5. If you dig the Vinyl camp out at your favorite record store and pick one up!
