... are college kids even going to see DMB anymore?

'Cause I see DMB as the type of band that solidifies its audience in the first decade or so, and then that audience just stays and grows with the band. I don't see newer DMB fans that would feel at home with that frat-douche scene from way back in the day. And I could see the folks that were in that scene either not going to DMB concerts anymore, or they're mellowed out with a partner and kids.

I could be wrong, but that's how I see it.
They exist, but it's not like back in the day where Dave was the college music darling (in large part because of the D&T tours). I think most would consider them too mainstream to be deserving of a following on campuses like they used to have (and I say this working at a college and seeing it in practice).

Into Prince? Check out my blog on Prince's full discography, including the side projects.
