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 didnít think so. Hereís an idea: pick up your favorite shandy on your way home from work, order some delivery, and kick back and watch everybodyís favorite South African native sing and dance live from Jacksonville!

Yahoo! And Live Nation are partnering up and starting this new thing theyíre 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? Hereís 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!

Well that was fast. Here we thought the Ladies would be with us for the long haul, or at least the better part of a month. Camden weekend comes, and poof, they're gone. We talk tapers, Paul Simon covers, and in general, just have a Good Good Time. See what I did there?

Next DMB Album 'On Pause' For Now

Posted by Matt Yette in Album News at 12:46pm on Tuesday, Jun 17th, 2014

Rolling Stone had a chance to chat with Dave Matthews Band bassist Stefan Lessard about the 2014 summer tour so far, and while most of the article is pretty standard "we're on tour" fare, there was an interesting bit about the as-yet-untitled new studio effort included.

Says Lessard with regards to the studio sessions, "We're sort of on a pause right now as far as any studio work and the newer material. There's some things that we've worked on that we'll talk about every once in a while and kind of get excited for. But right now we're all in these shows, so the acoustic shows have sort of taken over any thoughts for the studio. And also I think that the acoustic thing is maybe opening up ideas for the next record as well. We've done some preproduction. I think there will be more preproduction to go. I don't think that any one song is yet ready to say, 'Oh yeah, I know it's going on the record.' But there's some new things and new music in the works for sure and it's all very exciting. I love when this band gets into a creative place to start making a new product and new music and it seems like we're gearing up to do that."

All in all, this should be expected. The band is currently in the midst of a 42-date tour which sees them opening for themselves with an acoustic set each night, putting their total on-stage time per evening near the 4-hour mark. Historically, tour season is not when we see a lot of progress on studio sessions, and Lessard's comments should be taken with that in mind. The band's last album, Away From The World, was a record-setting 6th straight #1 debut on the Billboard 200.

7.28.92 is the Next DMBLive

Posted by Sean Balogh in Live Releases at 3:27pm on Friday, Jun 13th, 2014

The first Best of Whatís Around opener that we know of, a Dave solo Zeppelin cover, and a Two Step with a few rare interpolations? Well, youíre in luck, as thatís the next iteration in the DMBLive series. From July 28th, 1992 comes the earliest official release of the band, and the first release from their weekly appointments at Trax in Charlottesville. Also including an early version of Help Myself and Angel from Montgomery, which the boys have covered multiple times although nobody seems to be quite sure who originally wrote the tune, this set certainly has plenty to interest a lot of fans. Oh, and this one has the much loved Peter Griesar, so those are indeed keys you hear being played on songs.

The show was actually fan recorded due to the band's open-arms policy towards taping, and that fan recording is available on our Download Area. It's a good test listen, but per the recording notes, there are various cuts in songs and crowd noise. It's a testament to the band's devotion to taping that fan recordings of live releases are allowed to remain in circulation; if you dig this show, you should definitely purchase the DMBLive release. The increase in fidelity from the mastering done in production alone makes it worth it.

This is the earliest DMB official release to date, so don't miss the opportunity to hear the band in their infancy.
