Subject: brief notes about last night's show

First of all, the show was great.  The Met Cafe in Providence is a VERY
SMALL place.  It was nice, and it was a little unique because behind the
stage were these kind of glass doors (well, more like wooden doors with
lots of panes of glass) and you could actually stand back there which
definitely gave a really cool view of the whole band from behind, with the
crowd facing them.  The show was sold out, as was Friday night's show at
the Paradise, from what I heard.

Overall, I felt the setlist was very good.  The crowd was into the show in
a big way and I think the band really pulled out some intense playing in
response to that.

The setlist:
set 1:
Best of What's Around!
Dancing Nancies
Say Goodbye
What Would You Say
Tripping Billies

set 2:
One Sweet World
Jimi Thing
Rhyme and Reason
The Song That Jane Likes
Lover Lay Down
Ants Marching

("This is a first," Dave said.  Then they played . . .)
Nature (the Samples song)

Of course, you can look up my post from 4/15/94 and you'll see that they
did soundcheck with "Nature" that day at the Orpheum Theater.  So it was
not REALLY a first, and it wasn't a first for me, but maybe in front of a
whole mess of people it was their first time playing it.  Everyone had a
good laugh about it back in April (they were just figuring it out then) . .
. They actually did it quite well last night.  And if they had messed up
most of the crowd was already too drunk or too tired to really notice.

Other highlights included:

Hearing Leroi play a little bit of #34 between songs.  I was screaming my
head off but we didn't get lucky.  They went into Lover instead.

Hearing Two-Step-->Best.  Have they done that before?  It looked to me like
Dave just thought of it and told Carter before they started Two-Step.  Dave
had three broken strings by the end of Best; he was actually having
problems with that the whole first set.

Getting in free by being put on the guest list.

Arriving home at dawn after a three and a half hour drive from Providence
during which we listened to almost the whole show in the car.

Scanning some cool photographs from Superjam.  Lee Silverman (Phishnet
Archivist) and I spent about three hours scanning a whole bunch of pictures
that my friend Barry and I both took in Athens.  Here's a list of the new
stuff; you'll see the disk space the picture takes and what each one is
called (the names are fairly self-explanatory-- they're all DMB except JB1
and JB&Todd).  All the pictures are from Superjam 6/12/94, as I mentioned.

There are also some cool new Phish pix but I'm not sure where exactly Lee
put those.


Enjoy.  And if anyone knows how to get me into the Jones Beach HORDE to see
Dave without paying 31.50 please mail me.

Subject: Chris Hani

Since there has been some discussion about this, I thought I would post an the 
attached article from April 1993.  Chris Hani's name is pronounced: hah nee

LENGTH: 122 words 

   A senior official of the African National Congress was assassinated on 
Saturday, the South African Press Association reported.   
   Chris Hani, 50, was also the leader of the South African Communist Party. 
   SAPA quoted police as saying Hani was shot at his home in Boksburg, a largely 
white suburb east of Johannesburg. 
   It quoted a police spokesman as saying a man had been arrested. 
   A neighbor of Hani said the suspect was white. 
   Hani, a senior member of the African National Congress policy-making national 
executive committee, was also general secretary of the South African Communist 
   Hani was commander-in-chief of the ANC armed wing for many years. Right-wing 
whites regarded him as one of their worst enemies.

Subject: more on #34, while we're at it...

i don't know exactly where i heard it, but when miguel died, all of
the local bands in c-ville agreed to write a song about him.  #34 is
the dave matthews band's end result.  this is just hearsay, however,
so don't hold me to it.

and speaking of miguel, afrikan drumfest, the band(?) he was with is
still doing things in the area.  they played here in h-burg a few
weeks ago, but i missed out.  it's just a bunch of african americans
together playing tribal rhythms, and they really blew me away the one
time i saw them.  they played a small indie-rock festival here at jmu
two years ago, and almost stole the show, even though it was just
four guys pounding on really nice handmade bongos.

Subject: who else was at the nor-east shows?\

a freind of a freind of mine was at a coupla of northeastern shows,
i'm not sure where (i don't pay attention to dates, 'cause i have
no way of getting there or in, and don't care about them), but he
said that they played a couple of new tunes.  i would assume that
'nature' by the samples was one of them, 'cause said freind doesn't
listen to the samples to my knowledge, but he didn't know another
tune either, and as far as i know he's pretty knowledgeable on dmb

and here's another stupid little anecdote.  the dave matthews band
has given me a propensity to really notice ants.  two weeks ago, the
radio station i work for was infested with 'em, and a few moments ago
i noticed them crawling all up and down my arm (don't ask me where
they came from), and all i could think about (aside from getting them
off of me, that is) was "red and black antenna waving....."

god help me.

Subject: Re: Dave and Tim Show

This is the lowdown on the Dave and Tim show at the Birchmere...

It will be Thursday, August 25 at 8:00 pm at the Birchmere in
Alexandria, Va.  Shannon Worrell will open up, and then Dave and
Tim will play.  Tickets are $13.50 each thru ticket bastard...

I ran into Boyd Tinsley (quite literally) here in C'ville
yesterday, and happened to mention the show while we were
talking.  He had know idea that the two of them were playing.
Uh oh, I may have started something (with Dave going off to catch
a quick buck without the band).  Oh well.

Oh did I mention that the seats were General Admission???  Well,
i did now, and they are...

See you all there...I'll be wearing an autographed Dave ET style
shirt (their first and original shirt) at the show if anyone
wants to say hey.

Go out and buy the new Shannon Worrell cd.  It's great.  Guests
buy Dave, Tim, Roi, and Kristen Asbury (among others).  Really
good stuff for those of you who aren't familiar with her stuff...

Well, ok, love you, bye bye...

Subject: New Press, New CD, New News

Article3/4 of page 6 and 1/3 of page 8 in the Aug 11- Aug 17
(Charlottesville/Albemarle) Observer).

Title: THe money side of Music: Local talent sells the Dave
Mathews Band

notes new CD, titled Under the Table and Dreaming, to be released
simultaneously in US, Germany, and Holland. "Media in 39
countries will now receive press releases and DMB CDs courtesy of

Remeber Two Things, produced under an independant label, sold
90,000 copies. RCA's Flohr says the company is "elated" if an
indie release sells 15,000. R2T will stay under Red Light
distribution; Chris Tetselli reportedly expects UtTaD to bring
more interest in R2T; i.e. why turn  over to RCA what will later
be worth more to us than it is to them now?

Other local news: Trax is reportedly (Daily Progress or Cville
Review, August 9, i think) in bankruptcy court. Yep. Chapter 11
(or is it 13?) and new owners will reopen the place this fall
as the Charlottesville La-la and Sports Bar, or some lovely
monicker like that.

Ummm.... word from my cousin in Athens is that DMB tix go for 3-5
times face value _*IF*_ you can find one. Sounds like DMB needs a
bigger Athens venue, and maybe 2 or 3 shows in a good solid run.
God knows how much press, attention, fans, R2T sales, UtTaD
coverage, fun, jams, buzzes, and soul 3 nights in a big Athens
venue could bring! Anybody else want to plan a road trip for
unannounced, unplanned, not-expected shows, just to be ready to
roll when it happens? Anybody have a good line on how to get tix
in Athens?

Subject: Nashville show

Very stunning show last night here at 328 Performance Hall.  I'll get a 
setlist up if anyone's interested.  There were an amazing number of 
tapers last night.  I've never seen 3 DATs at one DMB show, but also 6 
tape decks.  So, my boot needless to say has tons TONS (second one for 
impact) of breaks in it.  Everyone was fucking with their volumes and 
tapes and etc.  But, the band had fun.  They said fer' definately that 
"Rhyme and Reason" was on the upcoming album (27th Dave also said).  They 
also played Jimi THing and Best of What's Around so I'd assume those.  
Really intere3sting intros to a couple of songs but I'll have to listen 
to the tapes again to say.  Oh, I've got the tab file but am working on 
it because it has quite a few errors in it.  If anyone really needs it, I 
can send what I was sent, but it'd probably be easier to let me fix it 
first.  Graham

Subject: Re: Nashville show

This has absolutely nothing to do with the Nashville show, I'm
just too lazy to send a new message...anyway

The cd will contain (as was told to me by Jeff Bagby at the
Brown's Isle show)
Lover Lay Down
Best of What's Around
What Would You Say
Say Goodbye
Jimi Thing
Rhyme and Reason
A full band Dancing Nancies
and Pay for What You Get
        Jeff did not flat out tell me, but he confirmed each of
the songs when I named them.  Two Step most likey will not be on
the New cd, because the band feel that it has most definitely
lost something without the samba part with Peter and his keys.
However, the songs that are appearing on the cd have been
re-arranged, and I am told to expect some surprises with the
arrangements.  Although, for those of us who have been fortunate
enough to have seen Dave and Co. recently, we know that Two Step
has been re-done.  Roi also takes much of an extended solo toward
the end of Dancing Nancies, and Boyd plays the part that Roi used
to play at the start of Jane.  
        I am told though, that John Popper will guest on What
Would You Say, and both Jeff and Carter have said that Roi's sax
solo on that song is mind blowing.  To have this said by two
different people coming from completely different aspects of the
band, it MUST be good.  All things considered, I would expect
this to be a great cd.  We have only a month and a half to wait
and see.
        Does anyone out there in Dave-Land know if the band has
done Cry Freedom, Spotlight, or Eyes of the Maker recently???  I
am told by a friend of mine that they do these songs every now
and then, but the set lists I've seen lately have been devoid of
these songs.  I was talking to Carter backstage at BI, and we
when we were discussing their older stuff, Carter said that "Just
yesterday, when we were on the bus, we were looking at an old
tape, and realized that there were like 20 songs that we had
forgotten how to play."  With this statement, I would tend to (I
hope, atleast) to see some of those older songs come back.
