I think DMB is an <eminent star>.  These guys are so good;  they're a real
<eastern mint>.  And we can talk about 'em in a <mere instant> here on our
<minerats net>.  DMB are magical in their improvisional live shows;  they
are <men in set-art>.  I mean, I think the members of DMB are <treats in
men>.  You know what i do every day?  <i net star-men>!

Get it?

Subject: Dave at Frat Parties

Something horrible happened last night (well maybe not horrible)
A friend of mine was DJing at one of the crappy weekend fraternity parties.
 Someone else, Bob Gee, had just got the album, so it was our mission to
make the DJ play it.  We picked Tripping billies to play because we felt an
uncultured audience would take to it fastest.
After arguing with the DJ for some time he agreed to take the disc
(wouldn't take some crisp tapes)  but he said he probably wouldn't play it
because he was the prime time (11:30-12:30) DJ and he had to play cheesy
Danse music.  
Well Bob abd I had all of our friends go up to the DJ and reguest "that
Tripping Billies song by Dave Matthews".  So the DJ played But Anyway
(getting closer) and the crowd was still groovin' and then he started to
play Trippin Billies but.........
Everyone stopped dancing.  They all looked perplexed.  What was this music?
I was trying to get everyone to dance but I just can't whip 100 people into
a virtual frenzy.  Needless to say he cut out of the song before the end of
the first chorus :-<.
There it is, my first and probably last experience of Dave at a
Northwestern Fraternity party.
Sorry for the long post but I thought you would like to know this.

Bye,

Brian

Subject: reply to Brett, bootleg and Watchtower

Brett,
 
Thanx for the direction you were able to supply me with in placing
when and where my bootleg's from.  I didn't realize they used to have
a piano player.  When did he leave?
 
About Watchtower, I agree that their cover of this song is incredible,
but I don't know if I would say it is necessarily *better* than
Dylan's original.  I think Dylan's stands out just *because* it is
original.  However, The DMB's cover has got to be the closest that any
cover has come to overtaking its original in quality.  I love that
song!  The first time I heard their version was at an April 15th show
at Wm. and Mary when they opened up for Toad the Wet Sprocket, and it
really just blew me away.
 
Well thanx for the help!
 
Jamie C.

Subject: DMB in publications

Does anyone know of any publications that have published articles
about the band or their music.  I have one from the "C'ville" mag and
one from the Rich. Times Dispatch, but was interested in reading more.
 Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Subject: dave matthews interveiw at wxjm, harrisonburg

after a little calling around, and talking to four different people
(including dave), i've managed to line up an interview with dave
matthews to be done live at wxjm, 88.7 fm, harrisonburg va.  the
interview will be done at about 4pm, and will be taped, hopefully
on dat.  if your in town, tune in.
 
the main point here is what should i ask him?  if you have anything
in particular you'd like to know, send me a message and i'll put
together the best questions.  i'm looking for broad, general questions,
because this interview is being done for jmu, which doesn't have
quite so strong a dmb base.
 
he should also be playing a few tunes for us, too.  i'm hoping we
can find a way to get some other members in there, but college
radio stations aren't known for having large studios.
 
thanx, all...

Subject: HELP!!!!

Could someone please send me the last digest.
I accidentally erased it and didn't get a chance to read it.
I sent this to the net in hopes that those of you who don't have minarets
digestified will respond before I head off for break.
thanks

Subject: Thanksgiving Break

Sorry about that last post but it was the best way I could think of to get
the digest before I headed home.

However, this post is much more relevant (I hope)

Since I'm 'administrator' of this net I suppose I'll make this
decision/request.
With Thanksgiving break approaching many of us leave the academic world
and with that our internet access.  Most of the other nets request that
you de-subscribe while away so as not to build up a huge pile of mail.  
This is mostly due to the fact that some host computers and accounts with
those computer can only store so much material (read: so many messages)
and anything that exceeds that limit gets chucked.

Since this net is still small (and friendly :) ) I suggest we (the
minarets community) just stop/cut back on messages to minarets. 
Currently, minarets gets about one digestified message a day (isn't that
right?) So thanksgiving shouldn't really be a big deal.  


I just ask that people who are able to remain on minarets over
thanksgiving not post any/many messages.

I don't think this should upset too many people (especially since most of
us on minarets go to college and go home (somewhere) for thanksgiving.

How can you honestly say that DMB's version of Watchtower is better than
Hendrix's.  Take another listen to Hendrix's.

Subject: dave at frat parties..

here's my input on dave at frat parties.  there's two types of frat
parties.  dance hook-up fests, and live music jams.  personally, i
think dave has no place in the former.  the music people want to hear
on a dance floor is stuff that they're really familiar with and can
sing along with, which is why all in the groove would be a somewhat
appropriate selection.  as anybody here can tell you, i worship dmb,
but if i were dj'ing a party where the prime directive is to get as
drunk as possible and dance to the coolest beat i can hear, i wouldn't
play dmb.  in all honesty, i would steer as much as i could to hip-
hop and house, and throw in a progressive set of pretty mainstream
songs to break any monotony.  frat dance floors just aren't the place
for new music.
 
live music in frat houses, on the other hand, is a completley different
story.  i've found, here at jmu, that the live band parties kick some
serious ass.  it's actually a perfect place for dmb, what with boyd's
stage theatrics and dave's facial expressions.
 
at any rate, i wouldn't worry in the slightest about your experience at
northwestern.  once dave catches on, you'll see people dancing to it
all the time.  walk into sig ep, sigma chi, or axp here at jmu and put
tripping billies in, you'll probably see some pretty serious bouncing
around.
 
that's all from this corner of the world...

Subject: a day for the interview would be nice...

sorry everyone, forgot to tell you what day the interview is going
to be on.  it'll be on this coming monday, nov 29(at 4pm).  if you
haven't heard yet, the band is playing that night on jmu campus.
tix are $5 in advance, $7 at the door.  i think 'in advance' means until
5pm monday afternoon, and tix would be available through the upb
box office which is in the warren campus center.  if you're interested
in coming to see the show from out of town, just ask any student
where it is.  it's pretty big and hard to miss.
 
i'll also be asking dave a bunch of questions about the lyrics file,
so be prepared for an updated version soon.

Subject: GA THEATRE

                THIS PAST SAT. NIGHT I WENT TO ATHENS TO SEE DMB.  THE BAND
WAS TERRIFIC BUT THE CROWD WAS NOT.  HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SHOW INCLUDE: 
DANCING NANCIES TO CLOSE THE FIRST SET, MINARETS, JIMI THING, WHAT WOULD
YOU SAY, AND A GREAT RECENTLY.  ALL OF THESE WERE SUPERB.  THE BAD PART OF
THE SHOW WAS THE CROWD.  TOO MANY SOCIALITES AND TOO FEW LISTENERS.  IT
MADE ME SO MAD TO SEE A BUNCH OF DRUNK IDIOTS PULLING THEIR DRUNK STUPID
GIRLS AROUND AND TRYING TO SING ALONG TO EVERY SONG AT THE TOP OF THEIR
LUNGS.  FOR A MINUTE I THOUGHT THE BUFFETT FANS STOPPED OFF AT THE WRONG
PLACE.  THEIR WERE GIRLS HUGGING AND SWAYING AND YELLING TO ALL THEIR
"FAVORITES" ( THE ONLY SONGS THEY KNEW) WHILE TOASTING INTO THE AIR WITH
THEIR BEERS.  THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH GETTING INTO THE MUSIC BUT THEY
WERE THERE FOR A PARTY, A SOCIAL EVENT.  I LOVE TO DANCE TO THE BAND AND
SING WHEN APPROPRIATE BUT NOT SO DAMN LOUD IT INTERFERES WITH OTHERS.  I
HAD TO LEAVE THE FLOOR AND RESORT TO THE BALCONY.  THIS MADE ME MAD.  HEY I
LOVE TO HAVE A FEW DRINKS AND ENJOY MYSELF BU TI CAN CONTROL MYSELF.  I
WENT SO THAT I COULD REMEMBER THE SHOW, NO TTO SEE HOW MUCH I COULD DRINK. 
IF YOU COME TO A SHOW, LISTEN. PARTY SOMEWHERE ELSE WHERE YOU ARE WANTED. 
I THOUGHT WITH GA BEING OUT IT WOULD ELIMINATE A LOT OF THE NOT SO SERIOUS
GOERS, BUT I WAS WRONG.


                SECONDLY, WHERE ARE THE DEC. DATES?  IT IS GETTING CLOSE
AND I HAVE A MONTH TO CATCH MANY SHOWS OVER CHRISTMAS.  I CAN NOT WAIT!!! 
JUST A REMINDER THE BAND WAS GREAT THAT NIGHT.  

                READY TO HEAR "BEST", 
                                        KELLER
