Subject: Trial Run

I know there are only about three people that are going to get this:Ellis,
Eric, Prof. Sweterlitsch, and myself.  From Ellis and Eric I'd like some
suggestions about introduction message.  Do think it is necessary?  Should
I just get rid of it or maybe change it and have it explain about the DMB
rather than all that technical info about ILP sessions?  I've never
used/tried ILP, any thoughts?  Might it be useful/fun a little later? 
Just trying to sort through all this stuff out.  I don't want to jump into
this prematurely without having it the way it will serve the mass the
best.  thanks for the help.

Subject: DMB's CD Release Info

I'm the project manager of the DMB CD...the release date is now set for
November 2! The new disk is titled "Remember Two Things" and the track
listing is as follows:

Ants Marching/Tripping Billies/Recently/Satellite/One Sweet World/The Song
That Jane Likes/Minarets/Seek Up/I'll Back You Up/Christmas Song

The disk was produced by John Alagia and the Dave Matthews Band Sept/Oct
1993, and features both live cuts and studio tracks. It looks like this will
be the band's only independent release b/c a major-label deal is being
finalized as we speak and should be announced in Nov or Dec.

Do us a favor and inquire about the disk with your local record store! Record
retailers can contact the label directly for distribution information:

Bama Rags Records
Coran Capshaw
(804) 979-9695/fax (804) 293-6510
PO Box 1911, Charlottesville VA 22903

Since this disk is not beind distributed through any of the major
distributors, we need to build a buzz through consumer demand...so ask the
stores!o

I URGE ALL OF YOU OUT THERE TO GET YOUR LOCAL RECORD COMPANIES TO GET THIS
DISK.  THEY PROBABLY AREN'T GOING TO GET IT OTHERWISE, ESPECIALLY IF YOU
LIVE NORTH OF THE MASON DIXON LINE.  SO KEEP BUGGING YOUR RECOD STORE AND
PLAY THE ALBUM FOR ALL YOUR FRIENDS SO THEY WILL GO BUY THE ALBUM.

THANKS

Subject:New Album Info 

The cover is a stereogram that was specially created for this
project...perhaps you've seen sterograms...they're abstract fields of
fragmented shapes of color, but if you stare "past" them (eg, look at yr
own reflection in the glass over the art) then you eventually see a very
distinct 3D shape...in this case, a hand with two fingers up (the album
title is "Remember Two Things"). It's a pretty wild effect. We're also
making a poster for sale at gigs with a large version of the cover image
and a small DMB photo at the bottom.

Don't forget to get your local record store to call about stocking the CD!
They need to call Coran Capshaw, (804) 979-9695 to get info & order. This
will be a huge help! Thanks.

Subject: Dave Mathews Band Bio/Schedule

....
....The Members:
Dave Mathews -- guitar, vocals (amazing voice!)
Carter Beauford -- percussion, vocals  (jam on!)
Stefan Lessard -- bass (thump and grind, and he's 18!!)
LeRoi Moore -- woodwinds (esp saxophone!!, flute), vocals
Boyd Tinsley -- violin (read: FIDDLE!!!), vocals
...
....The Band:
The Dave Mathews Band draws from the distinct talents and styles
of its five members to create a uniquely compelling pop sound
that combines the influences of folk, jazz, rock, world beat, and
reggae.  Some of it seems like a cross between Bob Dylan, Hot
Tuna, and Michael Stipe, parts are remniscent of a funky Miles
Daves, and parts sound like the Seldom Scene and Ziggy Stardust
mixed together. Dave Mathews, the band's namesake and formerly a
Charlottesville bartender, began assembling the group in 1991.  A
self-taught guitarist and an inspiring poet from South Africa,
Dave Mathews has said that the goal of his music is "lifting
spirits" and this band reaches that goal. Carter Beauford, a past
regular on BET (Black Entertainment Television) and son of a jazz
trumpet player, helps tie the band's various elements together.
Stefan has played upright bass in clubs since he was 15, was 16
when DMB was formed, and continues to get more powerful and
controlled every show.  LeRoi has played with Carter and John
D'Earth (amazing trumpet player!!; catch him on Bruce Hornsby's
new disc and on a 60-show tour with Hornsby this fall) at paying
gigs and informal jam sessions around Charlottesville for years;
the man can jam!!
.....Last, but certainly not least, Boyd Tinsley: he doesn't like
to sing (but sounds great when he does), but man can he play that
fiddle!  At three HORDE shows this summer, as well as at the Red
Rocks Amphitheatre, the crowd went NUTS each time Boyd appeared.
Boyd played as wonderfully to that crowd of some 9,000 in July as
he did on a lawn, in the rain, for ten folks sitting in grass
last May.  He's cool-natured and friendly beyond belief; all he
wants is to play, and boy can he!  You ain't heard Watchtower
until you've heard the DMB's arrangement with Boyd's SMOKING
solo!
.....DMB has played ALL over Virginia, but has also played dates
in SC, NC, GA, AL, NY, IL, CO, MD, DC, TN, and I can't begin to
remember where else. You may have seen them or heard about them
playing Feb. 6 at the Ritz (NYC) playing with members of the
Allmans, Widespread, PHISH, Blues Traveler, and I've forgotten
who else.  Their current schedule follows:
...
Fri, Oct. 15: Hampden-Syndney College, Farmville, VA
Sat, Oct. 16: William & Mary College, Williamsburg, VA
Tues, Oct. 19: TRAX, Charlottesville, VA, with The Hatters
Wed, Oct. 20: Floodzone, Richmond, VA
Thurs, Oct. 21: Ivory Tusk, Tuscaloosa, AL
Fri, Oct. 22: Louie, Louie's, Birmingham, AL
Sat, Oct. 23: The Metro, Chicago, IL, with The Samples
Sun, Oct. 24: The Metro, Chicago, IL, with The Samples
Tues, Oct. 26: TRAX, Charlottesville, VA
Wed, Oct. 27: Zollman's Pavillion, Lexington, VA
Fri, Oct. 29: The Bayou, Washington, DC
Sat, Oct. 30: Wetlands Preserve, New York, NY
Tues, Nov. 2: TRAX, Charlottesville, VA
Wed, Nov. 3: Floodzone, Richmond, VA
Thurs, Nov. 4: The Attic, Greenville, NC
Sat, Nov. 6: St. Christopher's School, Richmond, VA

Subject: Dave Mathews Band Tree!!

......IT HAS FINALLY HAPPENED! The management of the Dave Mathews
Band has consented to and released high quality soundboards of
some of their best original material explicitly for distribution
through a net tree.
......If you haven't heard them, a bio and schedule follows in
the next message.  If you have heard them, you'll understand why
this tree is already huge even BEFORE an official announcement.
I've lost count of the number of people that signed up when I
didnt know the date, venue, setlists, or even the number of
tapes. Reason is, it doesn't matter: they smoke! Sorry for the
wasted bandwidth, but I know that folks out there are interested
in this possibilty, one which has been resisted and delayed and
now, excitingly, has come through.
......THIS IS THE OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT. The setlists and fillers
are specified below the following form.. Because of the high
demand already, I MUST HAVE the following info, each on a
separate line, in this order in order for you to get on the tree:
(you may be able to insert this portion in your message back to
me, NOT the net):
Name
email address
RU willing to have leaves? (Y or N will suffice)
how many leaves would you be willing to have? (oft 3-6)
do U have tapes to trade? (Y or N will suffice)
dolby preference (A, B, C, or none; no preference -> none)
equipment you would use to tape, inc. dolby capabilties
   (eg cheap, unnamed dual decks w/o dolby? new NAK singles?)
...
I won't discriminate against dual (dubbing) decks.
Please don't sign up again, if you already have.
.....
The Tapes:
.....The Dave Mathews Band
.....6-26-93  The Bayou  Washington, DC
Tape 1 (Set One with Filler)

Wow.

That's all I've got to say.

The show was incredible.  First time I've seen them, and no tapes
(yet), so all the songs were unfamiliar, but I just can't think of
the words to say how great they were.  Especially Mr. Fiddle and Mr.
Woodwind.  (yes, I could look up the FAQ, but I'm still on a musical
high from the show).

Anyway, although I'm sure most people reading this group have seen
them before, if you haven't, by all means do it.

Ok, so that wasn't all I had to say.
