Subject: DMB & Others @ Lake Matoaka Festival, Sun, 4/10

What an awesome day.  The sun was shining, the bands were wonderful (5 of
them), and the crowd was excellent.  As Dave put it, a beautiful day to
celebrate life.  Unfortunately, Dave's celebration was cut very short by some
very anal organizers I think.  They probably played for about an hour, but it
seemed even shorter than that.  So, after 8 hours of incredible music, the
plug was pulled.

Best guess I've heard is that homeowner-like people complained last time
they were here, so the cutoff point was 8pm.  Whatever the reason, it was a
horrible time to pull the plug, because the band was rocking.  everything (a
band) right before them got about 10-15 musicians on the stage and went into
this incredible jam that went on forever that included leroi and dave.

If anyone has more accurate info on the show, post it, because I didn't
really pay attention, I just enjoyed it.

DMB finished up with an incredible version of Recently, though, that must
have gone on for 20 minutes.

Oh well, next stop, (for me), Raleigh!

Agreeing with Brett's post, what a killer day. The set list went 
something like this....
One Sweet World
Two Step 
Ants Marching
Warehouse
Best of What's Around
What Would You Say :-)
Recently

Dave being cut short was quite a dissapointment, but fun was had by all. 
Having some friends who worked security, I got to run around backstage 
and drink free beer, which was a nice bonus. Hopefully Dave will play a 
long set before Phish.......

In trying to clear up the confusion -
  I believe that the posts regarding Col Bruce's last show for a while refers
to the recently announced April 24th Van Ripers with Dave, Col Bruce,
Acoustic Junction and someone else.

  Hope that helps.

I am clearing Ashley Evans name of any further humiliation. A couple of
days ago I wrote a message on her email to the net. I was heavily
intoxicated and I wrote a pretty ridiculous message, about the Athens
tapes, that made her sound like an idiot. Here is the message:
>In my 11 months on the net I have never posted but the Athens shows made me
>post, if anybody taped I would love to trade, I have a lot of tapes
>includin rare stuff, a tree definitely might be in order. Please e-mai me

>P.S. Sean Berry is awesome
She did however appreciate all the responses and she would like to still
trade for the Athens tapes. So if any of you are still interested.
My deepest regrets

It seems that the 1-30-93 wasn't near NYC so that I'd suggest that perhaps Bill
had a slip of the finger typing the date in. Hence, 1-30-93 becomes
10-30-93 at the Wetlands in NYC. Richard Harding showed up and played sax on
True and flute on Watchtower. Perhaps this is what you meant Bill. Later,

One Set

One Sweet World
Two Step
Ants Marching
Best of What's Around
What Would You Say
Warehouse
Recently


I know Chris Buford posted that already, but the order was a little
mixed up.  

A couple of comments on the show.  At the begining of One Sweet World,
someone let a giant inflatable globe loose and people batted it all of
the place for awhile.  I thought it was a nice touch.  Groovy new intro
to Two Step.  Good jam at the end of Ants.  BEST OF WHAT'S AROUND!!! 
'nuff said...Flubbed lyrics in What would you say.  Warehouse was GOOD.
Doug Wannamaker played his Hammond during a stellar Recently, and the
the Everything/Boy O Boy horns sat in.  GREAT version.
The crowd was cool, the ABC and cops were dicks.  They ran out of beer
during Everythings set and I was left holding a couple of beer tickets,
bummer.  Great crowd chant of "Bullshit" after Dave's announcement that
Recently would be their last song.  Oh yeah, after One Sweet World Dave
sang "Bouncing Round the Room..."  makes me wonder if he's listening to
some Phish.
Too short, but it was worth it just to see Doug sit in with them again.

Subject: W&M Show...

    I don't know if anyone has a better explanation, but here's one.
A friend of mine is in SEAC, W&M's environmental club, which was
supposed to receive a portion of the proceeds from last fall's Dave
appearance here.  From what she tells me, SEAC didn't see a cent of
the money.  Turns out that the cost of supplying power (lights, etc.)
caused the show to break even.  Perhaps they were trying to avoid
this and cut it short?  Hey, Special Olympics has to get something
out of it!  Who knows, I was pissed too, but the Soul Fish jam made
up for a lot of me angst!  Later...

For those of you that weren't there to see it, Everything played this

Hey Guys,

        I just subscribed to this net and I was wondering if possibly I
could get briefed on what's happening.  I go to Cornell, but one of my good
friends goes to UVA and he got me into DMB.  I only have two bootlegs
(2/24/94), but am willing to trade.  I have over 125 Phish (for all those
cross-over fans) and about 35 Dead.  I was just hoping someone could get
back to me about this message, and maybe we could get some trading on the
way.  Thanks.

Just to clear up the short set at W&M on sunday, they had to stop at
8:00 because of Virginia State Sound Ordinance for outdoor shows.
I was really disappointed to say the least, because of the great set
that was being played, and the presence of doug wannamaker could have
made the night magical.  anyway, don't forget about the Samples and Allgood
at University of Richmond this sunday, april 17 at 12:30,
tickets are $9 in advance and $12 at the door, charge by phone(804)289-8388.
they are going fast, hope to see you there, iwill be running around on

Umm..  I don't get it.  Does this mean any show in VA that's outdoors has to
stop at 8pm?  I know this isn't true..  Or is it within a certain radius of
residential buidings?  I'm pretty sure last fall when DMB was here they
played well past 8pm too.

Guess they'll just have to start earlier next time...

Subject: TWO STEP-subject

I don't know if tis has been mentioned before, but I think I figured out
the meaning behind Two Step. I think it obviously has to be about Noah's
Ark and the flood, listen to the line: "We climb on two by two,
                            To make sure these days continue."
Now the story behind Noah's ark, for those of you who haven't been awake
since the Old Testament was handed down, is that God told Noah to that tere
was going to be flood, because he was dismayed with the iniquity of man and
sought to destroy them w/ this flood. He also told Noah to gather a male
and female of every living species so that they may  generate their species
on the earth when the flood subsided. He got all these pairs of creatures
and had them "climb on" to the ark, in order "to make sure" that those
"days continued."
        
anybody agree w/ me?, anybody care?, anybody want to shoot me?, relieve me
of the 2007 papers I have to write between now and 9:30 A.M., pleas!

For those of you like both Phish and DMB and have been following the
results of their recent shows, take heed to what I say.
Have you noticed how the recent shows of both bands have been fantastic?
Examples: DMB->Athens: Rhyme or Reason,B.O.W.A., 2 Step-> Ants.
          Phish->Binghampton: Tela->Slave, 
                 Toronto: Mikes->Lifeboy->Weekapaug
                 Buffalo: Antelope->Fluffhead

it seems in both bands cases there shows have been getting better by the
day. I feel like we are expecting something cataclysmic. Please send me all
your opinions, ideas, dream setlists, inter-band jam possibilities, etc.
April 20th is a dream come true.
BTW what time does the show start?

Subject: DMB albums

Does anyone else think that DMB does a terrible job at making albums?   The
other night I was in the car with a friend when they pop in a tape; it was an
absolutely terrible, uninspired Ants Marching.  It didn't surprise me when i
found out it was from R2T.  The rest of the album speaks for itself.    
  I heard Recently CD5 for the first time (close listen) last night.  The 4
minute Recently really blew me away (not really).     Dave and Tim do nothing
special on Dancing Nancies; Boyd blows away Tim on the end jam, and the best
part of the song (the ending) isn't even on it. Why didn't they just take the
Dancing Nancies from 2-22?     Warehouse isn't the same without Dave's intro
wailing.  Also, the crowd at the Birchmere doesn't help these songs all that
much.       Watchtower: the only good thing that ever happenned to a Dave
album: congratulations Dave.     Halloween pretty much just sounds stupid. 
Maybe Metallica can cover it now that it has electric guitar.  

Also, maybe their next album will come with an in-depth catalogue of the
merchandise of all bands on the RCA label.

Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Gay Bee

I
Among twenty snowy mountains,
The only moving thing
Was the eye of the gay bee.

II
I was of three minds,
Like a tree
In which there are three gay bees.

III
The gay bee whirled in the autumn winds.
It was a small part of the pantomime.

IV
A man and a woman
Are one.
A man and a woman and a gay bee
Are one.

V
I do not know which to prefer,
The beauty of inflections
Or the beauty of innuendoes,
The gay bee buzzing
Or just after.

VI
Icicles filled the long window
With barbaric glass.
The shadow of the gay bee
Crossed it, to and fro.
The mood
Traced in the shadow
An indecipherable cause.

VII
O thin men of Haddam,
Why do you imagine golden birds?
Do you not see how the gay bee
Walks around the feet
Of the women about you?

VIII
I know noble accents
And lucid, inescapable rhythms;
But I know, too,
That the gay bee is involved
In what I know.

IX
When the gay bee flew out of sight,
It marked the edge
Of one of many circles.

X
At the sight of gay bees
Flying in a green light,
Even the bawds of euphony
Would cry out sharply.

XI
He rode over Connecticut
In a glass coach.
Once, a fear pierced him,
In that he mistook
The shadow of his equipage
For gay bees.

XII
The river is moving.
The gay bee must be flying.

XIII
It was evening all afternoon.
It was snowing
And it was going to snow.
The gay bee sat
In the cedar-limbs.

that's makes a lot of sense imho.  i've listened pretty carefully to those
lyrics, and though it's one of those songs where he really tends to mix
things up from show to show, some of it really fits.  (although other
parts fit into the quick lay and goodbye theme).  i'll might just go
work on that some more....

there is now a minarets archive site.

this allows anyone to grab one of the minaret files whenever they want or

                         {these are broken up into 6 or 7 files right now
                                    it may be by month?}

Subject: Samples & DMB 4/14

A brief summary: Good show, incredible assholes in the crowd.

Dave Matthews Band opened up with a totally smokin' hour-long set, with
lots of hot jams...Boyd (the violinist) got so into the jam on Rhyme and
Reason that his glasses flew off his face and he didn't even seem to
notice!  The crowd(except for one guy who kept yelling "bring on the
Samples") recieved dmb very well (I don't imagine there were many people
there who had heard of them), and Boyd even came back out to jam w/ the
Samples.

The Samples were hot too (the best that I've heard in three shows since
October), but the crowd really wrecked it for me.  I was at the edge of the
stage from the beginning of the show, and things got pretty well packed in
when everyone tried to squeeze into the orchestra pit area.  And
then...they started moshing, crowd-surfing, and stage-diving!!!  I got
kickedin the head so many times that I almost wanted to leave.  After I
gave one "surfer" a little nudge off of my head and onto the floor, another
guy came up and started bitching at me for not letting people have fun.  I
tried to explain that by having my skull bashed in, they were ruining my
fun (along with that of the rest of the great folks up front).  He then
proceed to tell me "This is the mosh pit.  Why don't you go back to the
fucking country club if you don't want to have a good time."  I responded
that I just wanted to watch the band without getting beat up, and then
turned around to the stage, he started yelling at me "Are you having fun
now?" over and over.  I really just wanted to punch the guy, although I
managed to hold myself back.  So needless to say, I was a little bit bummed
out, when low and behold, during Underwater People, Sean points at me,
waves me onto stage  hands me his guitar, and goes of stage.  Al and Andy
do the same with other people (a couple assholes who tried to come up got
stopped by security :-)))  Well, I know about three guitar chords, so I
sounded like shit, but it was such a buzz!!!!!  On stage, with the Samples,
looking down at all the jerks who had been kicking me all night was just
incredible...I'm still not even sure it really happened...WOW!  Well, if
anyone's interested I'll try to come up with a setlist as soon as I come
out of this state of euphoria..

Later

My own personal horror story if I might?

Avalon, fall 1993, the Samples. . . .
There was a mosh pit, and I was in it unfortunately.  This very drunk guy 
behind me starts yelling at me, "Dance.  Why aren't you dancing?  Dance, 
man."  Dancing, as he understood it, was essentially giving people black 
and blue marks and broken ribs.  It ruined the show for me.  Plus, that 
time, the asshole got picked by Andy to play bass.  No justice.

For anyone going to the show tonight, bring full riot gear and I'll be up 
front and center (For Dave at least!) in a Harvard '97 hat and WSP 
shirt.  See you there!?!

Alex Crothers said the Burlington show was 2 1/2 hrs and short in his opinion
 (not a direct quote).     From my experience,  2 1/2 is good for DMB--it
seems like they are always under 2 hrs 15 min.  
 To add to the list of Dancing nancies intro sound-alikes (i.e. Wilson), how
about Help On The Way?

Subject: About the Boston show, 4/15/94 (semi-long)

Hey folks:
Just got back from the DMB/Samples show, which, I might add, I left early 
because the Samples really sucked (this is coming from a FORMER Samples 
fan, by the way).  Anyhow . . .

The show was scheduled to start at 7:30pm.  Today was a very nice, warm day 
up here, and seeing as how I only had one class I decided to go down to 
the Orpheum early-- 5pm.

I got there at five (it's down this alley with the entrance to the place 
all the way at the end).  Nothing doing.  I walked around the block and 
killed some time in a book store.  At about five-thirty, I went back to 
the alley and sat down in front of the theater.  Then, a minute or two 
later I see Dave, Leroi, and Stefan walking down the alley toward the 
theater.  So I met them half-way down the street, we talked for a bit, 
and started walking again.  I asked them if they minded if I sat in and 
listened to the soundcheck.  Dave said it was no problem and that I 
should just walk in with them, which I did.  I went directly to the 
spot right in front of the stage and sat down there.  Boyd was already 
fiddling around ;-) and they all got set up.  Here's what they played for 
the soundcheck today:
	1. Dave/Stefan jam-- it was just a really cool riff that they 
	   were throwing around for a couple of minutes as the sound was being 
	   balanced.  Has good groovy potential, perhaps as #37?  
	2. Recently-- they only did part of it, and by request from the 
	   sound people who wanted to check Dave's guitar on the intro.  
	   By this point Carter had sat down at his set, and I was getting 
	   my own little concert!
	3. Nature-- this is a Samples tune that DMB figured out live 
	   today.  It was obvious they had NEVER played it before.  Dave 
	   started with the chorus, and after doing that a few times and 
	   basically just jamming along, he and Stefan figured out the rest 
	   of the tune and ripped it up.  It was really good and really
	   funny!  Of note here was that when they finally finished the 
	   tune, they all completely broke down laughing-- it was damn
	   funny-- and then they started in about the crowd last night at 
	   Portland.  The stage-diving, the rowdiness, the having people
	   from the audience play guitar, etc.
	4. Rhyme Or Reason-- funky, to be sure, with an extra added 
	   measure of Dave-scream in this dark version.  Leroi and Boyd have 
	   come up with a really cool unison part to play in this tune.  It 
	   looked to me like this was the first time they actually tried it
	   out because of the surprised and extremely pleased look on 
	   Dave's face.

After that, the band was being shuffled off downstairs to eat dinner, but 
I had the chance to talk to Dave for a minute and I introduced myself and 
asked if he remembered me.  He said yes, which I could sense since the 
whole time during the soundcheck he was looking down at where I was sitting 
trying to figure out who the hell I was.  Since every time I've seen 
Dave I've been front center, and in Athens I made this little 
"Best of What's Around" sign (which he did remember), I figured I'd 
introduce myself.  I asked him if they'd play Best, and he said it was 
likely.  Also one other thing-- Leroi's new alto sax.  Very sweet.

I grabbed dinner and was back at the theater at 7pm.

Well, it was down-hill from there.  Their real set was very good, but 
obviously it wouldn't live up to my experience during the afternoon.

Here's what they played:

One Sweet World
Tripping Billies
Rhyme Or Reason
BEST OF WHAT'S AROUND!!!
	One note here: after they played it, and Dave had stepped back up
   to the microphone to say something and start the next tune, I yelled
   "Thank you" to him.  He nodded, and said "You're welcome" into the 
   microphone.  Cool!
Recently
True Reflections
Two-Step
Ants Marching


As I said, the Samples were painful to listen to.  I left about 40 
minutes into their set, and I passed Leroi on the way out and thanked him 
for a great show.  And it was.


I don't know how to put this any SUBTLE way, but IT IS TIME THAT THE DAVE 
MATTHEWS BAND PLAY A FULL SHOW, NOT JUST OPENING FOR SOMEONE ELSE, IN 
THE BOSTON AREA.

P.S. They're in top form these days folks.  Really hot.

Wow!  DMB really rocked last night.  They opened with One Sweet World.  I'm
not sure of the rest of the setlist, but they played Recently, Tripping
Billies, True Refelctions, and alot more.  After the third song or so
a few friends and I yelled "Ants Marching" and they played it last... I don't
know if they heard me, but it was a great strung out version.  

WHEN IS DMB GOING TO PLAY A FULL SHOW IN BOSTON?!?!?!?!?

Every time that they have been here they have opened for another band...
ARU in the fall and now the Samples.  I like DMB alot more than ARU, and
the Samples are pretty good for the first half an hour, but they get
boring... all their songs souns alike.

I hate grovelling, but I only have one show, the 6/26/93 show in D.C. that
was tree'd.

Anyway, what I would LOVE is if there is anyone out there is nice enough to
help out a guy that loves DMB, but just doesn't have anything besides one
show to go by, to email me so we could set up some type of deal. :)

My tape list includes a TON of Phish (somewhere over 100 hours), as well as
some Hatters, Spin Doctors, Pearl Jam, Shockra, God Street Wine, and the
Authority.

Thanks. :)
