Where is Ants

Ok. Obvious question we are all thinking but haven’t said….not one play of Ants? Is SMLAM gonna become the new Ants…and Ants becomes the new Pig? People gonna have to start holding up “Ants” signs…and Dave’s gonna troll us all and tell us no matter how much we beg, he’s never gonna play teh Antz?

    I was thinking the same thing. One of the two nights it should/will make a return. If it doesn't, well then more power to them! All of us have heard it the most by now, always eager for new songs.

    Also, do you think they break the non-cover streak and break out a cover this weekend at WPB? I have a hunch they might.

    Can't say I'm mad or upset about this. The current version of ants is far from great. Now Crush on the other hand...

    I would be surprised if we don't see Ants, Crush and Jimi by the end of WPB weekend.

    I love Ants, but would gladly go without it if Jimi and covers also continue to get no play.

    Re: Where is Ants

    I'd give up Ants if it means Jimi and Covers take a lap this tour. SMLAM should not be closing encores though. Main set? Fine.

    No Two Step, Crush or Ants while they close shows with Shake Me and Why I Am is a bit odd.

    Hmmmm…I don’t know….I think my love for an encore Ants outweighs my loathe of a 20 minute Jimi-snooze….or a quick, painful, Sledgehammer

    They may have been getting bored with closing shows with those. Time to switch things up.

    Where is Lie In Our Graves?

    Where is Jimi Thing?

    Where is Crush?

    Where is Samurai Cop?

    Where is Crash Into Me?

    Where is Two Step?


    Perhaps they just haven't gotten around to playing some songs yet.

    Yeah….you guys are so right…I forgot the name of the website was SamuraiCop.org

    Give me a break…the last time Two Step went on a hiatus, everyone got their panties in a wad…

    Just trying to have a fun discussion about the fact that the most played DMB song, the name of this website, and arguably the most popular DMB song has been missing from the tour and it’s surprising after the unexpected year off.

    However, I, obviously, forgot that these boards are 99% of the time just a place to bash other “fans” for their topics, thoughts, and comments. Ahhhh….welcome back, DMB fans.

    Ants just needs to be simplified. There’s just way too much stuff going on

    I don't think it's a bad song for songs to get shelved for a bit. (Also, its only been a week, so let's cool down a bit).

    Though I will say if it's anything like 2019 Ants I'm ok. Ants and Nancies are the two songs that hurt the most without the violin.

    Why does it matter? It’s great to have huge songs like that take a hiatus IMO.

    Re: Where is Ants

    I'll take Jimi, Ants, and Cop at EVERY show if I means I don't have to Bayou again. I thought they played it too much in 2018, but more dates in 2019 brought more plays. It's got a couple of interesting musical ideas, but the melody is schlock...trying to be cool and interesting but failing. The jam does nothing for me. The only time I was marginally "okay" w/ it was when it opened SPAC N2...we were on the rail and it meant that it was out of the way and we could just enjoy the rest of the show. It's by far my least favorite DMB tune that I've heard live.

    Don’t worry, it’s being made up with songs like shake me and cornbread…
