Subject: DMB's CD Release Info (fwd)
I'm sorry if you got this already but I thought since I got about 20 new
requests this weekend I'd post it again for them.  I'm working on getting
this info. posted when you sign up that way everyone doesn't have to look
at it again.  Still working out some of the minor bugs, so let me know if
you have any troubles.

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

Subject: Well, here goes nothing.

Okay, hopefully you all will get this:
The new album-- WOW!  Aside from the songs that'll be on it and all that
jazz, did anyone note the producer?
No, well, I actually know a bit about him.  See if you can follow this one:
A former girlfriend and still good friend of mine as an older sister who
went to Yale.  She was seeing this guy from the D.C. area.  He had a tape
of this duo called Derryberry and Alagia.  The first tape, called
Southpaw, was a whole album with just the two of them singing w/ guitars
(and occasionally you could here some bongos, congas, etc.).
Then, a friend of mine came across another album by them called "Rutabaga
Stew".  This was a bit more of a full band arrangement with bass, electric
guitars, etc.  It was put out by a small label in Northern Virginia, but I
never got around to calling them to get more info.
I found out about the DMB through totally separate channels (they opened
for the Samples on 4/21/93 in New York).  But what a weird coincidence.

Does anyone know more about Alagia?  

As well, I'm interested in trading for more DMB boots.  E-mail me if
interested.

Thanks for listening

Hey everyone! I am as of yet unintroduced to the DMB, though on the
current tree, and as I saw that the grovels have started, I thought I'd
jump on the wagon. So if anyone can get me started, I would be much
obliged. I have plenty to trade in the way of other bands. Also, I
live in Burlington VT, so does anyone know, how to get the band up here.
Obviously there are plenty of places to play if you are familiar with
all the good bands playing up here. Anyway maybe if the management could
get in touch with this system, especially since it's run out of
Burlington maybe us northerners could get a chance to see these guys!!!
I'm anxious to get my first taste! - murph -

i've got an idea that i think is pretty good as far as posting to
minarets.net is concerned.  seeing as this net is not nearly large
enough to be digestified yet, we all have to deal with those pesky
headers.  whoever posted about getting some trees started, good idea
but i couldn't seem to figure out who you are.  i think you would
be the management of this net, but i'm not sure.  i say, that until
we get this thing digestified, place your name and e-mail address at
the bottom of each post so that everyone knows exactly who you are
and how to get in touch with you without asking everyone.
 
as far as getting some trees going, i have what seems to be the
rather popular 11-17-92 show from trax, and also, a rather obscure
sep 7 show, though it isn't quite complete(and never will be seeing
as i was the only one recording).  i'd be willing to seed either one,
but i definitely don't have the time to organize a tree.

i can't recall the sep 7 setlist right now, but i can
say that it can either be seeded as a single 110 minute tape (but that
would be evil, cause 110's drag so bad) or combined with the rest of
3-23-93 to fill three 90 minute tapes pretty well.  i'll post the
setlists for both sep 7 and 3-23 as soon as i can.

There are of course plenty of prime places (Burlington, Cambridge, etc.)

perhaps the net will help, depending on how closely involved DMB
"officials" are.  are they, or is this grassroots fans?  if the
management's not following the net, some snailmail might be encouraging
enough to bring DMB up to Providence (a far better location than Cambridge
:) ).  Seriously, if they are already working on a major-label signing,
they ought to at least truck on up their side of the country...

p.s. my post a second ago about "testing" doesn't mean to imply just that
one tester, it's everyone new.  try to get some info on what you're doing
before you do it; the info is readily available.  also, (as everyone
reading this already knows) subscription requests shouldn't be sent to the
whole readership.  these points should be emphasized; some people are
paying to read email, others already get bulk email and don't need extra
with no content.  but if you have something to say, SHOOT!  hope to hear
good info from you all...

i've actually picked out a substantial amount of dmb, but i'm absolutely
no good at translating it into tab, particularly given the complexity of
some of his changes.  i tend to come to uva once a month and if i
have the time i might look you up and maybe we could sit down and show

Daniel Gold asked the question whether this was a grassroots organization
or not.  well yes and no.  It was started by me with the help of a couple
of others (Eric and Ellis) but soon after it started (this weekend) I got
E-mail from Thane Kerner and Baylor Fooks in Charlottesville, VA.
These guys are the project mangers and designers for the new CD and work
with closely with Dave, Coran and Ross.  So it was started by fans (as it
should be) but has the support of the band.  I'm not sure how Thane and
Baylor are connected to the Internet (is it through the office at Trax?  I
would doubt it.) but they are.  I working on some of the bugs in the
system right now so if you have any suggestions let me know.  Thanks

with dave matthews playing in c-ville every other week and richmond
every other week, why won't he come to harrisonburg once a month.
it's only an hour away.  i know that the same arguments holds for
us who want to see him, why don't we just go to c-ville?  well, dave
plays until 2am and we have classes on wednesday here at jmu, plus,
i know a lot of people who don't have the access to get to c-ville,
not to mention an entire freshman class who's never heard him.
rumor has it that dave doesn't like the crowd that show up to see
him when he comes here, but believe me, i've seen some pretty bad
crowds at trax and c-ville.  i even have a show where he gives subtle
hints to the fact that he is really pissed at the crowd he's playing
for at trax.  somebody clue us 'burgers in.

Hey guys! In response to the theory that DMB would be afraid of a none-

route, unless of course you're some pop band who's just made for video.
Bands like the Ominous Seapods, Water, Motel Brown, Chin Ho!, etc.
play around here sometimes to crowds less than 20. All except Water are
semi-local bands. Actually I'm sure about MB either, but you get the

Dave Matthews Band is entirely too big for any bar in Harrisonburg.  Unless
the virtually worthless UPB at JMU chooses to hire them for a gig (which they

a freshman at JMU, you should have no problem finding a ride to Charlottesville
on a Tuesday or Richmond on a Wednesday (You will have a problem dealing with
the Trax crowd I imagine ;) )  DMB is huge in this area.  TONS of people go
down every week.  Good luck seeing the band...(BTW- I recommend seeing DMB at
Flood Zone over Trax...over the past few months, the Trax crowds have gotten
almost intolerable...affects the mood as well as the band's playing and en-
joyment...I've seen them really miserable on the Trax stage on more than one

an aspiring musician who finds that some of my own music, which i know

heard before.  at the flood zone i've seen dave twice sing the opening
lines of 'dancing in the streets' to (of all songs) recently.  thanx
for pointing this out to me(including those who e-mailed personal
messages).  as for the 'and even when i'll be dancing', i have
three show that agree with that.  we all know that dave tends to
change lyrics on a moments notice, granny being a good example(the
original, played on 11-17-92 was almost depressing), so you may
be right as far as any shows you might have on tape.

>What has happened to the crowd at Trax to make it so miserable?
 
In my opinion, lately the Trax crowds have been too drunk, loud and
disinterested in the music.  Tuesday nights have become a social scene more
than a musical experience.  I think the club's proximity to the school affects
the crowds.  It's too easy for shitface "wahoos" to go to DMB and scream their
heads off while trying to get laid.  It's a far cry from the old Tuesday scene
at Trax.  I feel a wider touring range would help the band not only grow more
widespread (ie the hungry North Easterners) but would also give them a fresh
perspective on playing live.  I have talked to Dave after Trax shows when
he has been very bummed about the crowd.  They just "stomp on your buzz".

Subject: trax crowd..

i have a show which shows dave's contempt for the crowd at trax.
as early as the end of the first set you can hear the entire crowd
screaming "HALLOWEEN" at the top of there lungs.  the band continues
right on through the night without any hint to where the song might
come in(though everyone knows that the encore is a good place for bets).
so the encore finally comes around, people are still screaming for
halloween song and dave says casually into the mike "me and carter
are going to do our seasonal song now."  halloween has been done
without a bass line before with just as much energy, but dave and
carter break into (one of the best versions i've ever heard)---
christmas song.  personally i find christmas song to be as powerful
a song as halloween, but a crowd as inebriated as trax was that night
is sure to disagree.  i thought it was funny, but decided that from
then on the flood zone is definitely a better place to see the band,
but i can't get that far without my own car.

i dig what you're saying about the trax crowd,
this summer shows were an incrediable bother
dealing with those drunk nonmellows, out to be trendy, tuck in the oxford,
etc..don't care about music crowd...
excuse the grammar and don't forget about those high schoolers (not that i
didn't go in high school but whatever...)
it's too bad the home home crowd is starting to piss off the band.
also, not to offend those who tuck in their oxfords it's just that
wahoos can certainly start to look the same...

As whoever sent this last messages pointed out there have been a lot of
messages coming through minarets.net.  I can make this digestified if
everyone thinks that would be better.  When I set it up I figured the
volume of mail coming through would be small like horde.net and fine-wine
but maybe I underestimated the power of the DMB. $-)  What do you all
think?  It can easily be digestified.  I'll leave it up to the majority.

If there's enough demand for it, do it.

I personally prefer normal mail procedures, but that's beside the
point.  If enough of the subscribers want it, do it.

(nb - there IS probably more traffic now, at the start of the list,
      and it will level out with time.)

Come on.  It's been three days.  Why not wait it out a little.  Hell,
with the digest you still get the same messages.  Why not just filter
your mail, so you have a dmb folder.

Granted volume has bee high recently, but it's only been three days.

There has been little of substance to come through and there is only
so much of that, it should die down (don't tell the people on
Phish.net).  My guess is that in a week or two the traffic will be low
again.  Let's face it.  They aren't doing any big touring, they are
only playing like twice a week in VA.  What is there to share?

Here's one vote in favor of non-digestification.  Traffic will die down soon.
And it's so much more convienient the way it is.  Though being on any mailing
list must be rough if you don't have have mail filtering setup.  Setting
it up isn't trivial, if enough people ask me how I'll write up a few paragraphs
on it, and post here, horde.net, finewine, etc...  Though my knowledge is

Sounds like something you do after drinking too much. $-)

anyway. There were some people who wanted the list digestified abd some
that thought mailings would die down soon so why digestify it.  So rather
than digestify the whole list only to (maybe) undigestify it in a month or
so I'm just going to let everyone take it into their own hands.  Someone
pointed this out earlier but people are still sending me messages about
digestification so I'll post it again.

To digestify your own list send the message "set minarets mail digest" to
listproc@moose.uvm.edu  that should take care of it.  If it doesn't let me
know.

actually, for a while, there was a rumor that dave was leaving c-ville
all together, but that apparently isn't the case anymore.  i try to
make it a habit to _always_ make absolutely sure that dave is playing
trax or flood zone before going, because i've gone three times to the
flood zone, payed my five bucks, and found boyd, leroi, and carter
jammin' with some unknowns out of c-ville(or sometimes indecision),
and it just ain't the same without dave up front.  the trax # is
295-trax, and fz is (don't hold me to this--)643-6006.  i've also
included daves current touring schedule, which is set in stone.

these are the songs that i've already got:
true reflections

so much to say
dangerous hours
pay for what you get
minarets
tripping billies
 
i'm not saying that i have these 7 songs written in stone, but i'd
like to get some more songs in the works.  try to use a recent as
possible versions for these songs:
granny
halloween
christmas
warehouse
jimi thing
rhyme and reason
and any other song that has a strong tendency to sound like a large
mass of dave talk.
 
thanx a bunch--i look forward to hearing some ideas.
and stay tuned for your chance to ask bunches 'o questions for the FAQ.

To all those of you in VA...I need some help.
 
I am currently booking the November Virginia tour for Hypnotic Clambake, a
really cool klezmer/reggae/folk/bluegrass crazy band out of Boston.  I figure
there are a lot of us Virginia college students here on Minarets.net, so here's
what I need:
                        Venues!!!
 
There is one crucial Friday (the 19th) that remains to be scheduled.  I would
like to find a cool frat house that wants a cool band to play at a party or
something.  Let me know if you know of such a place.  Include names and #'s
if at all possible.
 
Also, if you know a cool club I may have overlooked, tell me about it.  I
already know about Trax, Flood Zone, South Main Cafe, Bayou, etc. but if you
think you may know a place I don't (especially in Richmond) let me know.
 
Thanks for any help anyone can offer...

The number for TRAX (in Charlottesville, VA) is (804) 295-TRAX (8729, i
think). If you call and get voice mail, you can hit 1 for concert info (2 is
to leave a message; do this only for serious inquiries and important stuff,
please.)  If you're driving in from out of town, let them know that at the
door, especially if you're driving in from out of state. I think they'd like
to know that, and if they know that folks are driving as much as some of you
are (four hours? wow!), then there's a good chance that some gigs could be
added closer, to meet that demand. So walk on down to TRAX, tromp through
that door, and say, "Hi! I'm a Minaret Head from ______. This is gonna be a
great show!"  

For most shows, doors open at 9 p.m, tickets are $6, and the show starts
around 10:30.  Some nights, DMB is out of town and TRAX features !ALMA! or
the Charlottesville All-Stars, both of which are various combinations of
members of other great local bands: Indecision, TR3 (check out Tim
Reynolds!!!!!!), etc.

For the most part, DMB plays TRAX on Tuesdays and (I think this part is still
right) the Floodzone (Richmond, VA) on Wednesdays. On some occasions, as
there was last night (10/19), there may be an opening band. Last night was
the Hatters, formerly the Mad Hatters. (To note, their soundman, Ben Folsom,
used to be the soundman for the Jolly Llamas and was, in the interim, house

Subject: Re: Lexington Zollman's Show

Let me know if there is a problem with this upcoming so?  My brother
runs/manages Zollmans's so I can let him know that the minarets are
coming. 8-)  It sounded like it was only a problem at one show there
though so hopefully we won't have to fool with my brother.  But let me
know ahead of time if there is going to be a problem.  Anyway, look for my
brother there.  You can't miss him.  He's 6'5", completely dry, blond hair
carrying around alot of photo equipment.  Yes, he will be taking pictures
too.  He took the pictures for their new album so he's pretty pysched
about that.

Subject: How's everything going?

Just wanted to send a general message asking how everything is going
concerning the workings of the net.
Specifically, how does everyone like the way the new headers set up?  Only
E-mail me if you have problems with it.  I don't want 30 messages saying
that you like it.  I got back to my machine today and had 75 messages-most
of them stupid.  So just let me know if you don't like it or think it
could be improved somehow.

And I assume the self-digestification is working out well for everyone.

Thanks

    Overall it was a good show.  I must admit it was a little disappointing
only to hear one set even if it was a long set.  The only other time I saw
the band play only one set was a few weeks ago at Van Riper's but that
really doesn't count.  Watchtower was incredible and Recently was another
high point.  One thing that made an impression on me was that the band
didn't follow Minarets with Blue Water.  I've come to think of them as one
song.  Well that's about it.  What did everyone else think?  I'm curious

Are there any kind souls out there who would be willing to accept blanks for
a copy of any show between Aug 93 - present?  I took a few of my
apartment-mates to see DMB for the first time this week and they were
especially impressed with Warehouse and Dangerous Hours.  Anything really
with one or both of these on them would be great.  Thanks much,

        "If I remember" correctly The Samples did play at The HORDE.  I
had never heard of them until I saw them there.  I do remember liking their
sound, but I didn't rush out and buy all their music.  Then I came down to
school and one day saw a flier around campus that they would be playing at
The Floodzone in downtown Richmond, VA.  A asked a girl in my hall if she
wanted to go with me and she flipped out.  Evidently she
has been listening to them ever since the beginning when they came out
with their first album self titled, The Samples.  She brought over a tape
of their first album, b/c at the time they hadn't rereleased their first
disk and it was really hard to get a hold of, so I listened to their the
whole album and immediately couldn't wait to see their show.  Now I know
that they don't jam on any of their albums, except maybe Underwater People,
but never the less their lyrics and sound is really good.
        Anyway my point, I think I had one, was how come no one seems to
say anything on the Horde-net about them?  A I the only one out their who
really likes their music?  I was lucky enough to get a taped copy of
the show at the Floodzone, from a guy here at U of R who knows the guy on
the soundboard.  Point:  The Samples were excellent in concert.  Put on a
good show, friendly with the crowd, and even managed to jam.  Does anyone
else out there agree or disagree?  There must be a couple more Samples fans
out there, I hope.
        Second Eric Budke, I think it was your post that I read that listed
the GSW tour dates, anyway I was psyched to see that God Street Wine IS
coming to The Floodzone.  When I got their August/September newsletter it
said that they were tenatively playing in Richmond at the end of Sept. but
then they moved the show to the D.C. area.  I was bumbed, but now there
is gonna be a show and I'm definitely gonna be there.  Will anyone else
out there in the greater Richmond, VA area join me?
        I remember seeing a post or two about the Dave Mathews Band.  Has
anyone else out there heard of them?  I just went to a show on Tuesday night
and it was incredible.  If you've ever heard them play you know what I mean.
If you haven't heard of them then I tell you what I know.  There from some
where in Virginia I think, because he does a lot of shows in the Richmond
area.  The lead singer is Dave, he has a black drummer, black saxaphonist,
and a kick-ass guy on violin/fiddle who really got the place rocking.
There's also a bass player, but he kinda stood on the side, didn't seem
really into it.  I
I'm pretty sure that they're playing NYC on October 30.  If your in the
area definitely go see him.  If anyone is really interested I can post
his tour schedule for the rest of the month, but I don't have it with me
right now.
        I hope to hear from some people about anything I've said.  Have
a killer weekend.

Subject: Upcoming events & such

The tour dates are out.  I have questions (sorry if this has been
asked/answered before) about new material being released.  I hear that there is
a live album set to appear around Nov. 2nd?  True?  And then a studio album
that will be out in December some time?  If these albums are really coming out,
what label?  Independent or major?  Does anyone know the exact dates?  And
where abnnd when was the live album recorded?  

Okay, enough questions for one post.  Take care.

Subject: Re: Upcoming events & such

I'll tell you what I know.  Or at least what I've heard.  The Nov. 2 album
contains both live and (I think) some studio material.  Some of the live
material is from this summer at The Muse in Nantucket.  (Three songs I
think)  The Nov. 2 album will be on an independent label but their next
album will be with a major/minor (?) label.  Don't know when the second
album is coming out.  Sorry these answers are so vague but I don't want to
say anything for sure because I heard all of this information second
(third ?) hand, and not from Dave.  Anyone else out there able to
add/correct some of this information.

Subject: Albums, etc.

Just to add a bit about the album:
The 8/19/93 show at the Wetlands was recorded by the band.  My friend who
was taping heard that they were in the process of recording six shows
along the east coast (that would be during mid-August).
Well, we'll see soon.

BTW, what's the best way to get the album-- given that I don't want to
spend lots of time badgering local record stores to get it, and more
importantly, that I want it ON november 2nd, not weeks later.

Subject: Mic question

I've found some mics that I really like, and am currently saving up
the money to purchase them, but I've run into a small snag.  Which
capsule should I get with them.

I'm looking at the AKG 460's cause I've really liked some shows I've
taped with them, or gotten tapes of shows with.  One is a dead show
recorded with the short shotgun attachment.  I can't afford this yet
as the attachment is 299 a piece list.

So I am then left looking at either the cartiod capsule, the
hypercartiod capsule and the omni capsule which all seem to go for
around the same price.  These are the CK 61-3 capsules if that
clarifies things.

I recorded from the lawn at Stowe with a non shotgun attachment and
the clarity and lack of crowd noise was unbelieveable.  

Much of my recoding would be from bars to theaters.  Probably not
arenas, no dead, and I don't forsee stadiums.  

So if ya got some opinions, I'll be happy to hear them,   Any
outstanding reason not to get the AKG's,  any other accessories that I
will need for portable recording?
(besides a deck, I got one of those, Denon DTR 80p)

Also a good place to get all of this stuff cheap would help.

Thanks for any and all help.  Sorry for the bandwidth if this wasn't
your cup of tea.
