Bayou prices

JTNIETHA@VAX1.ACS.JMU.EDU Wed Feb 23 00:34:04 1994

Here it is.  The Bayou is an 18+ and the last time I went to see Dave it was
$8 but it might be a little higher now.  I might be going but in case I can't 
make it, can someone please make a tape for me.  I can provide the tape if 
necessary.  If I'm there I'll be wearing a JMU hat and by myself so if you see
a lonely looking guy in the front row, stop and keep me some company.

Hey folks.  I was just thinking that there must be a lot of recent

those could be reposted?  Have additions been made?

Derryberry&Alagia

@mail.trincoll.edu:sean.berry@mail.trincoll.edu Wed Feb 23 01:33:29 1994

In response to Ben Tanen, Derryberry&Alagia is quite popular on this net.
There are at least two graduates of Portsmouth Abbey School who subcribe to
minarets, the other being Pat Parsons. Anyway D&A have been playing
Portsmouth, in Newport, RI, since '91 and lot of my friends and I have
become quite good friends with Doug and John. In fact every couple of
months John gives my friend Pat Parsons-fellow netter, tapes that he has
mastered in the studio. To those in Washington they often play at a bar
called Heads. Back to Ben, I see that you have "Southpaw", do you have
"Reinvigorating the Wheel" if you do don't you think a great cover would be
"Falling" or off "Rutabaga Stew" "Stomping Boots"
And off "Southpaw"-Desire or WIthout You or Tell it Like Is all of those
would be cool.

Blue Note in Columbia

klong@sura.net Wed Feb 23 07:31:14 1994


Just a note to "second" the suggestion that DMB play the
Blue Note in Columbia.  This club is one of the finest in
the midwest.  Many outstanding artists have played there
over the years.   Big Star held their reunion show there
and recorded their album (this also caused some huge 
problems for the campus radio station but that's another
story).  I've seen the Violent Femmes and the Blasters
there just to name two bands.  Columbia is a wonderful
town and the Blue Note is a great place to play.

The club itself is a converted theatre in the center of
town.  A much better venue than the location of years 
before at the end of 9th in a rather ramshackle building.

Re: Upcoming DMB show at Sewanee...

jcrother Wed Feb 23 08:25:39 1994


   I just heard a rumour that Dave will be putting on a FREE show at Sewanee
 in a few weeks (the 5ht of March, I believe).  This sounds too good to be
 true.  Can anyone confirm this for me?

Dave is playing at the Univ. of the South in Sewanee, TN on March 5, 
however....i heard nothing of it being free.  I have to talk to the home 
office tomorrow anyway so i'll definitely ask.  here's keeping our 
fingers crossed....even though i'm in Vermont and in no way planning on 
going to TN for Any show..be it free or not.

 -Ben

This would probably be a good idea.  In the past two weeks there have 
been nearly fifty new subscribers....as many of us have seen from the 
subscribe messages sent to minarets instead of listproc. :)

It would also give everyone the chance to see what information needs 
updating along with the songs that still need to be added to the Lyric and 
Chord files.

Also on the agenda is the updating up the Welcome message but, like most 
things these days it seems, that will have to wait awhile as a result of 
school and the upcoming WSP shows in the NorthEast.

This is interesting.....DMB considered alternative?  I guess 
college/alternative could stereotype them sufficiently.?  On the other 
hand, I didn't realize DMB was doing this well in the national sense.  
Isn't making the Rolling Stone chart a pretty big step?  I figured this 
album would only be selling large numbers in Virginia and other southern 
states.  I'm very impressed.  I think RCA has got itself a very 
productive band for the next couyple of years. :)

Okay, here's the deal on Rolling Stone.  They recently changed their 
ratings for the college charts.  Now, they go to ONE record store, most 
likely in a college town, and ask them what's hot.  So, obviously, it 
depends on who they ask.  Well, the 3/10/94 issues chart comes from . . . 



Yippeee!!!  This is a bloody great store!

All in all, we can be excited that DMB got a Rolling Stone mention, but 
don't get worried that they won't be "OUR" band anymore, blah blah 
blah.  Just to keep it in perspective, the folks in Athens are much more 
hip to good music than the world at large.  Plus, the fact that DMB just 
played two shows down there might have had something to do with the 
increased record sales.  Right?

In any case, I must be able to use this to convince some local stores to 
carry the disc.

Sorry to have to post to the whole net but I am new here and I have a few
questions to ask. First of all does DMB have a mailing list that I could
get on. Secondly is there an address that I can mail order their new cd
from. Last but not least is there any kind soul out there who would be
able to copy me a show? all I have to offer is some phish but as always I
could send blanks and postage and of course my gratitude. If anyone can
help me with these questions email me personally. thanks in advance! mike

that's a rather strange way of deciding "national" rating for the college 
charts isn't it?  however, i suppose if you take it with a grain of salt 
the results can be pretty informative/amusing.  

and Athens is a pretty good place to pick in terms of music since so many 
bands have come out of that area in the past 10 years.

on another note... could the FZ/Trax shows be coming to an end soon?  
this seems to be coming ever more apparent as the weekly gigs there 
turn into monthly.  ohh well.  i suppose soon we'll have people complaining 
about how it was in the old days when you could just go down to Trax with 
some of your friends to see them on a moments notice.

show and I was wondering if anyone can email me with directions of how
to get there from Richmond, VA.  Also does anyone out there have any
idea about the policies that Sweetbriar is going to have about having 
students from other schools there.  Also are tickets going to be
available at the door?  Hope someone can help me out....and looking 
forward to seeing you all out at the Floodzone tomorrow night!

3 questions from a 1st timer

Ian_M._Bassin@gorgias.ilt.tc.columbia.edu Wed Feb 23 18:41:19 1994

This is my first post, I'd like to know who the Keyboard player is on my
12/31/92 DMB tape and if he was a member of the band or just a guest. Also,
are there any setlist files anywhere? Does anyone have the Tim Reynolds CD?
If so, how is it and do any of the band members appear on it?

In response to your question about Tim Reynolds, he has two recordings
out.  First, with his band TR3, is Shifting Currents.  I don't believe any
of DMB performs on this disk.  It is a great album though (all
instrumental).  Tim has also released a solo album (just him on the ole
acoustic guitar).  The last time I talked to Tim, he had a couple of
copies of an old TR3 tape that they made in the late 1980s (gosh, that
seems so long ago).  I am suffering from a "lack of Virginia music" up
here in Maine.  I was lucky to catch Tim Reynolds playing with Greg
Howard at a local bar before I left my hometown, balmy Blacksburg, VA.  I
hope Dave and the boys make it up to Boston (at least).  I was very happy
when I caught them playing at the Paradise with ARU last fall.

Trax 2/20 and Sweetbriar Show

dee3s@uva.pcmail.virginia.edu Wed Feb 23 20:36:30 1994

the ride, guys), Rick and Gregg.  It was also a sweet show and
I'm glad I taped it.  However, by accident I left with one more
set of cables than I came with.  I thought I had come with two,
though I had only brought one.  So if anyone is missing a
red/white in/out cable write to me and I'd be glad to arrange for
their return to you.  I truly apologize.
Trax last night who goes to Sweetbriar and is going to the show
and she said she's pretty sure it's sold out.  Too bad for those
willing to have made the trip.

Take care,

 charts isn't it?  however, i suppose if you take it with a grain of salt 
 the results can be pretty informative/amusing.  

new chart system allows many different people to hear about different, 
regional bands.  Maybe the next time DMB plays somewhere, someone will 
check them out because they recognized the name from RS.  On the other 
hand, it also allows the whole country to sort of guage what other people 
are listening to.  And that's cool too.

I wonder if we can write to RS and petition them to focus on Plan 9 (is 
that what it's called?) in Charlottesville.  THAT would be enlightening.

yes, trax and floodzone could be coming to an end

STU_RCTHOMPS@VAX1.ACS.JMU.EDU Wed Feb 23 23:37:30 1994

in the last digest, alex asked if the trax and floodzone shows
it all came to an end on dec 8th.  i was at last night's show, and
it was not "oh, dave's playing at trax again," it was "fuck yeah,
dave's playing a concert in c-ville tuesday night...did you get 
tickets?"  i would even venture to say the crowd was a little
different than it used to be.  there were a whole herd of teenagers
crowding the stage by 9 (for a show that began at 10:45).  usually at
nine, i'm up front and center, analyzing the setup.  i payed
NINE DOLLARS to get in, and i'm personally looking forward to the
day i may have to pay $20.  the dave matthews band is no longer
a c-ville local band.  trust me, they are hitting big, and you
better get used to it.  (i'm putting on some asbestos now;)

belong to from good homes.  and i'll agree, they're no dmb, but they
are damn good.  personally, i liked them more than god street wine,
who i saw a week later.

BEST

COGBILLJ@guvax.acc.georgetown.edu Thu Feb 24 00:50:15 1994

Best of What's Around

Hey my friend it seems your eyes are troubled
Care to share your times with me
Would you say you're feeling low
And so a good idea would be to get it off your mind

See you and me have a better time than most can dream
Better than the best
And so we pull on through
Whatever tears at us
Whatever holds us down
And if nothing can be done
We make the best of what's around

Turns out not well
But who you with that [  ]
[  ]
And hurts not much when you're around
When you're around

And if you hold on tight
To what you think is your thing 
You may find you're missing all the rest
Cheer on up into the light surprised
Her arms are opened
Her mind's eye

Seeing things from a better side than most can dream
On a clearer road
And you can say she's safe
Whatever tears at her
Whatever holds her down
ANd if nothing can be done
She makes the best of what's around

Turns out not well but what you think that [  ]
[  ]
And hurts not much when you're around
When you're around

Hey la, oh, oh...

The best of what's around

We have been worried
We have been troubled
But always make the best of what's around

Sometimes I find myself feeling low
But I'll lean back and smile
Make the best of what's around.

**********************************************************


This is the best I can do right now.  I based the lyrics mainly on 
2/17/92 FZ and 4/22/93 DM and TR.  The "[  ]" I'm hoping to find out 
tomorrow when I see John Alagia who's going to be playing w/ Doug here 
at the Pub tomorrow night.

Hope this helps.

Good night,
Jamie Cogbill

concerning a petition for RS, and my hate.

fostekc0@seraph1.sewanee.edu Thu Feb 24 01:48:55 1994

anything that a minority would promote....RS has become to MTV oriented.  I
have a subscription as a gift, but I can not stand a lot of their
views....They may do a review of the album in the next few weeks if they
think that DMB will become a fad, which it will.  I can not believe they
have not mentioned Phish, this is just what RS is all about...image.  It is
now hip to be weird, or not hip, and RS thinks of itself as being hip.   I
wish they could take the balls to support something good that has not yet
been supported by masses.  They are on no edge.  The only gutsy thing they
have covered was Blues Traveler about a year or two ago.  Enlighten us,
show us something we can not see everyday.  I admit (so I wont get railed)
RS has its good articles but none pertaining to music.  Any Comments ?

how can i turn away

human as to human
the future is no place
to place your better days

from a crowd ten thousand wide
(hopelessly hope)
that this crowd will not subside
let this flag burn to dust
and in you our filled design is raised
while you wait head and hands hands in prayer
and fall into a dreamless sleep again
and you wait
and hands and feet are all allied
but wall between divide us
hands and feet are all allied
but gold between divided souls slip away

there was a window and by it stood
a meadow in which he could see himself
he thought of something
something he had never had
but hoped would come had gone

cry freedom cry
from a crowd ten thousand wide
while you wait
hands and feet are all allied
but gold between divide us
hands and feet are allied
but walls between divided soul slip away

in this room stood a little child
and in this room this little child he would remain
until someone might decide
to dance this little child across this
into a cold dark space
where she might never trace away
across this crooked mile
across this crooked page

cry freedom cry
from deep inside       
where we are all confined
and you wait there
how can i turn away
brother sister go dancing through my head
human as to human
the future is no place 
to place your better days

hands and feet are all allied
but gold between divide us
hands and feet are all allied
but worlds between divide us
hands and feet are all allied
but faith between divide us
hands and feet are all allied
but walls between divide us

could i have been the king of diarhhea  {11-9-93}

he stands touches his hair, his shoes untied
tongue gaping stare could i have been a magnet for money
could i have been anyone other than me
twenty three and so tired of life
such a shame to throw it all away
the images grow darker still
could i have been anyone other than me
and then i look up at the sky
how my mouth is open wide
lick and taste what's the use in a worrying
what's the use in a hurrying
turn, turn we almost become dizzy

True Reflections

when you look into a mirror
do you like what's looking at you
now that you've seen your true reflections
what on earth are you gonna do


(ch)

remember the time you hung out with the boys now
remember the things you used to say
i thought by now you'd be the president
but after all that was yesterday
you've had time to go out in the world now
but you chose to run away
people ask you what your doin' now
you don't even know what to  say

(ch x 2)

you think life is like a movie
where it all works out in the end
i think life is like a dessert
where does it go where does it begin
when you look into a mirror
do you like what's looking at you
now that you've seen your true reflections
what on earth are you gonna do

Warehouse  (9-7-93, 3-23-93, 11-17-92 ==any further thoughts on this song

(make this mind) 
don't throw away your playful beginnings
you and i 
will fumble around in your touches and be sure
to leave all the lights on so you can see
the black cats changing colors
well you can walk under the ladder
and swim as the tide turns you around and around

what i've found
they come and bond in a million 
slip into the crowds 
this question i found in a gap in the sidewalk
keep all your sights on 
the black cats changing colors
and you can walk under the ladder
and swim as the tide turns you around and around
life goes on
and i'll turn on the tv spot in the middle
static for you, statistical be it, sooner
fade away, fade away
but this i am, it seems so good
hard to believe i'm into it, smell touch and feel
how could this rhythm ever quit, bags packed
on a plane (oh later on)

shut up, i'm thinking
i had a clue now it's gone forever
sitting over these bones
you can redo whatever your meaning to
keep all your sights on
the black cat is changing colors
it's not the colors that matter
'cause they all fade away
life goes on
and i'll turn on the tv spot in the middle
satic for you, statistical be it, sooner
fade away, fade away
but this i am, it seems so good
hard to believe i'm into warehouses now
nothing at all inside of, the walls and halls 
have disappeared, they have disappeared

well no i'd love to (stay)
well no i'd love to (stay)
well no i'd love to (stay)
well no i'd love to (stay)

in the warehouse...
in the warehouse...
in the warehouse...
in the warehouse...

that's my blood down there
that's my blood down there
that's my blood down there
that's my blood down there

What Would You Say (March 27, 93)

up and down the puppy's hair
fleas and ticks jump everywhere 'cause of original sin
down the hill fell jack and jill
and you can tumbling after 'cause of original sin

rip away the tears 
and drink a whole to happy years
and you may find
a lifetime's passed you by

what would you say; don't drop the big one
if you were a monkey on a string; don't cut my lifeline
if you were a doggy on a chain; don't bite the mailman
what would you say?

i was there when the bear ate his hand
and thought it was candy, everyone goes in the end
knock knock on the door who's it for
there's nobody in here, look in the mirror my freind

i don't understand the cause
and cannot speak for all of us
(morning lies the) lifetime's passed me by

what would you say; don't drop the big one
if you were a monkey on a string; don't cut my lifeline
if you were a doggy on a chain; don't bite the mailman
what would you say?

every dog has it's day, 
every day has it's way of being forgotton
mom it's my birthday (would you say)
what would you say
what would you say
hey what could you say
what would you say

(      falling on my face if i'm lucky
lately trying to take it home
hey lee, falling on my face if i'm lucky
yes     tangled 'round my feet
lovely leave it for me heavy would you

Capricorn who was preventing taping not the band, as he stuck his DAT in a
small drawer.  He sayed that the taping was stopped because the number of
tapers was getting two large, there were too many microphones and the
sound was getting messed up from so many tapers.  His response to taping
seats, we are not going to fuck with that.  He said however they may remix
some of their tapes and issue them.  He also said that there would be no
more taping for the rest of this tour, however he did not know about
future tours.  I also have a friend who taped Dave, and if the tapes come
out well I will make them available.

after a nice 4 1/2 hour drive.  i watched the sunset last night, the 
moonfall about an hour ago, and now the sun is rising.  who would believe 
i purposely put myself in that position?
to play halloween, which they did.  the 'song about love' that merc 
mentioned was actually #36.   also, about the taping deal... jeff at the 
soundboard, and leroi, bothtold me that wp was planning on playing new 
songs that they didn't want leaked.  oh well... sometimes life sucks.... 
dwellers).  it was huge, smoky, sweaty, hot... blah blah blah... 
like rick said, i miss the smaller shows where you could go in early and 
chat with the band without being mauled by security.  i guess it's all up 
to reminiscing now... i'm off to bed... i'm delerious...clare emily

Rolling Stone

STU_GJCARRIE@VAX1.ACS.JMU.EDU Thu Feb 24 10:09:42 1994

To whomever said Rolling Stone does not support anything that isn't big, I
agree for the most part, but apparently their new Alternative Chart does just
that.  Everyone, don't make too big a deal out of this chart thing.  IT IS THE
LIST FROM A SINGLE STORE IN ATHENS, GA.  Athens is very open minded about
music, has a great scene, and because of it's proximity to DMB's former
"home-base" would have been a host to DMB shows a long time ago.

This does not mean that the band is getting big.  It doesn't even mean that
they are going to.  (Although from the first time I heard them, I thought they
would be huge.)  I hope that they become big at a good pace and not because of
a sudden rush of fame brought on by a catchy single (which could happen...they
have very catchy singles...)  

The point about these single-store record charts is that at any given store may
have anyone from Lou Reed to some local band with a self-produced CD5 at number
one.  That way, readers see not what the majority is listening to, but what
people in _ONE TOWN_ are buying.  And, BTW, Dave isn't that big (yet).  I think
he falls into the local hero scene far more than a widely known phenomenon. 
DMB isn't what people are listening to everywhere (yet ;)

Re: 3 questions from a 1st timer

jcrother Thu Feb 24 10:30:02 1994

 This is my first post, I'd like to know who the Keyboard player is on my
 12/31/92 DMB tape and if he was a member of the band or just a guest. Also,
 are there any setlist files anywhere? Does anyone have the Tim Reynolds CD?
 If so, how is it and do any of the band members appear on it?
 ----------------------------------------------
 Delivered by the Dalton Internet Gateway

I'm assuming the keyboard player on that tape is Peter Greiser althoguh 
i've never heard that tape.  However i could be totally off.  It 
could just be a keyboard sitting in with them for the NYE '92 show because 
i'm not quite sure exactly when Peter 'officially' left the band.  

Did this information ever make it into the FAQ? or could someone answer 
this question for Ian (and for me) who knows?  Thanks

Yes, it was Peter.  I saw the show and also made one of the DATs of the 
show.  He left the band sometime in March or April of 1994.

Highway I've found
They call me one in a million 
slipping to the ground    (The question he found in the sidewalk is beside   

On the plane, plane to heaven.


I'll play for you tonight, and they'll love it all (not thrill of it all)

Oh river red
Pouring from the side of his head    (blood is red)

A treasure not my own
I take it, took it, nobody will know
This wealth it suits me well


Day is gone I'm on my back, staring up at the ceiling
So I take a drink sit back and relax, SMOKE my mind...


I don't understand at best
and cannot speak for all the rest

Drink a HOPE to happy years.

Also, nice meeting everyone at Trax the other night...

Re: MINARETS digest 99

HOLRN@vax.rhodes.edu Thu Feb 24 17:42:29 1994

About the rap during Minarets...In Athens 02/05/94 Carter raps in the 
background during Minarets.  The reason that you were unable to hear
him is that his voice is almost a wisper which can only be heard 
through his mike...In other words, it can only be heard on the
recording...Trust me I did'nt hear it while I was at the show either.
Also, I am pretty sure that I have that mystery ENCORE on my 
soundcheck tape from 02/05/94...Can anyone describe this song for
me?...Thanks

jcrother Thu Feb 24 18:03:03 1994

 Sorry to have to post to the whole net but I am new here and I have a few
 questions to ask. First of all does DMB have a mailing list that I could
 get on. Secondly is there an address that I can mail order their new cd
 from. Last but not least is there any kind soul out there who would be
 able to copy me a show? all I have to offer is some phish but as always I
 could send blanks and postage and of course my gratitude. If anyone can
 help me with these questions email me personally. thanks in advance! mike 

Sorry this had taken me so long to get to but...things have been 
tremendously busily..both here (in Vermont) and one minarets.


The CD can also be ordered		Charlottesville, VA
at this address or phone #.				22903	

i'm not sure if the mailing list is much more than a flyer with dates on 
it since i've never seen one and really didn't even know one existed (i 
just added my name today!).  But if that's the case then there's almost 
no point in wasting the time and paper and money needed to mail it to 
people on the net since we get the dates alot faster than those flyers. :)

hope this helps some people out.

Re: 3 questions from a 1st timer

jcrother Fri Feb 25 10:14:25 1994

 Yes, it was Peter.  I saw the show and also made one of the DATs of the 
 show.  He left the band sometime in March or April of 1994.


I didn't want to repost the whole message as it has grown rather long in 
its development however the thread was about DMB's former keyboardist 
Peter Greiser.  This discussion floated about earlier on minarets but i'm 
not sure if any conclusion ever came about.

As for the above, i'll assume whoever (sorry i deleted the name) sent 
this meant he left in March or April of 1993 not 1994. :)

Hey, let's not get too excited!, the "80 beers" comment was all in
jest and one of those college catch phrases that we all know and love.

But on a more interesting note (and I hope no one's mentioned this 
already) I opened Style magazine the other day right to a half-page
DMB article.  As if this wasn't great enough, the second column was 
devoted almost entirely to..........THIS NET!  Crothers, were you
interviewed about it?  The article covered the band very well, and 
even mentioned Dave's sister's death and his background.

I never thought I'd soon be blocking out part of my day to read
minarets, etc., but i like it.

Does the whole band play Exodus.  I don't think i've ever
heard, although over the summer Dave played Redemption Song by

peter greisar

STU_RCTHOMPS@VAX1.ACS.JMU.EDU Sat Feb 26 20:45:53 1994

in an effort to try and clear things up with peter, this is everything
i know.  peter greiser is from new york and jammed with dmb in it's
early days, but from everything i've heard, he decided that he simply
didn't want to be with the band anymore.  the best reasoning i've found
is just that it was a personal decision of peter's to go back to new
york.  his last show with the band at TRAX was 3-23-93, and i don't
know if he played any other shows that week.  for some reason, official
sources (the band and beyond) are somewhat flighty on the subject, but
gregg found out from dave that it's just what peter wanted to do.

DMB/Dead conflict

bobgee@merle.acns.nwu.edu Sat Feb 26 22:07:48 1994


For all of you Midwest netters who were hoping to see Dave on Fri, Mar 18 in
Chicago, but also had already bought Dead tickets for that night -- never
fear, you can go to both. The Dead (at Rosemont) is scheduled to come on at
7:30, meaning they'll finish up around 10:30, then a 30-45 min. drive to
Schubas in time to see Dave. He's scheduled to come on at 10, but Coran called
the bar and convinced them to push back the time to about 11. (Coran, DMB's
manager, being both a Deadhead and a Davehead scheduled DMB in Chicago and New
York to coincide with Dead apperances in both towns -- probably not
coincidentally. He plans on making the two shows on Fri. Mar 18.) Anyone else
who is going to try to do this? What a night of music!

For both Dave shows at Schubas (MAr 18 and 19) the only advanced ticket sales
ar thru Ticketmaster. Tickets can be purchased the night of the show for $7,
but who wants to risk the show selling out first? (The place only holds 120 --
should be a sweet place to see Dave -- much better than the Cubby Bear).

Well it was another exhilirating experience tonight.  It was great to 
meet Jason, Clare, Blake, Rob and Kwon once again.  Sorry Clare, no 
Lover, but you gotta give em credit for dat Jimi Tang.  The first set 
was pretty much a Remember two Things set, but the second set more 
than made up for it.

The first set was actually really short and Dave seemed to be a little 
tired or something, but something happened backstage in that 45 minute 
set break that brought the band back in more than full force.  Oh yeah 
hello to my other netter friends that I attended the show with Rich, 
Brian and Kenny...the JMU cheering section.

Yeehoo!

mercp@acpub.duke.edu Sun Feb 27 21:12:27 1994

Considering the present debate concerning WSP's taping policy, I have
a little story of someone who has their head screwed on properly.  One of
my friends who went to the Raleigh WSP and DMB had spoken with DMB's
soundboard man (JEFF?????) at the DMB show at Cat's Cradle last week and
had asked if he could tape Dave at the Ritz, and of course was given a
welcoming yes.  However, when my friend tried to bring his deck into the
Ritz, he was seriously hasseled by the huge, muscle-rippling bouncers who
told him that they did not think they could allow anyting like that into
the show.  However with a little eloquence, these mental-midgets were
circumvented.  He then faced more problems with WSP's soundboard man who
would not allow any patching, even during Dave.  So, the badass DMB
soundboard man taped the show for my friend on their soundboard deck.
Yes,yes,yes, I wish there were more people like that in this world.

bayou 2/26/93 and other stuff...

cecliff@vt.edu Sun Feb 27 22:52:55 1994

hey everybody... i just got home from a breathtaking weekend.
graves, too.  they were both amazing.
finally meet everyone, and to meet so many at one time.  the only person i 
didn't meet was kwon, who came over and chatted with my companion after the 
show.  i figured out who he was after we left.  but all in all there were 
11 netters there. it was so cool!!!!!!  hope i didn't come across as a 
crazed bitch, but i was utterly excited.  i liked the bayou's layout, too.  
great sound, and for being somewhat small, it was very comfy.  i'll refrain 
from complaining about parking...
tapers.  so nobody got plugged in until the second set. the wierdest thing 
arose concerning taping, too.  you had to have bayou permission.  in 
writing. i'm serious.  tapers got stickers from jeff that said something 
like, 'bayou guest... dave matthews band... audio recording...'  tapers had 
to wear these while taping or get kicked out.  i laughed my ass off.  we 
were all joking around at the soundboard about these damn stickers!!! 
breezed through my hometown of richmond.  coran was the one 
interviewed about minarets.net, and it included a number of interesting 
facts concerning sales, the death of dave's sister, etc. if people are 
interested... i'll type it out sometime and post it.  just let me know, so 
especially passal. 
taggin along with the breeze,

Generally it seemed to me that this was a rather uninspired performance by
the band. I love every show I go to, but this was the worst which I have
attended.
It seemed like everything was going wrong, Stefan's bass, and the one thing
that angered me above all was the monitor control woman, who they must have
dragged off the street, because she kept fucking w/ the monitor sound,
turning it up and down during songs, how annoying. I was sitting behind her
and and saw her fucking w/ the dials. Finally I asked her if she knew what
she was doing which she did not take kindly to. Did anyone else notice
this? What is everybody else's reaction to the show. And not Jamie, because
I already heard your reaction in the bathroom of New South 1, anyway it was
cool meeting you.
P.S.-Hi Bruce.

Time to toot my horn

COGBILLJ@guvax.acc.georgetown.edu Mon Feb 28 02:09:33 1994

Well, everybody, today was just awesome...

Currently I am what you might call an "intern" of John Alagia...or you 
could say that I'm the person that gets to do the mindless stuff for 
him that he doesn't have time for.  What I do, or what I did today was 
go over to his house and work on transferring some music by up and 
coming bands around DC to tape for a project or organization known as 
WAMA (Washington Area Musicians Assoc. or something like that).  I 
also did organizing and like I said...mindless work.  But oh am I so 
happy to be doing it.

It all came about when I was at the Grog and Tankard last week w/ 
Christopher Sabec last week to see Derryberry & Alagia and John asked 
me for my help due to his overwhelming workload.  Well, even if he 
wasn't completely serious about following it up, I was...and I sort of 
bugged him about it, until now, and it has finally become a reality.  
John is a really great guy and he was very receptive and actually 
enthusiatic about talking to me about the band while I was over there 
today.

Also after I took the cab over there today...a certain someone was 
still there recovering from a good sleep after an intense show...yes, 
it was DAve.  He left soon after, but it was so neato to be over 
there.  I also got to go out to a coffee house with Christopher Sabec 
and chat over a cafe au lait and cookies (sorry, Christopher I forgot 
the name of that type of coffee cookie).  All in all it was a great 
day for the number one DMB fan. ---(hope this arouses fierce debate.)

Sleep well all.

When they open 4 Phish

BH7N@MUSICB.MCGILL.CA Mon Feb 28 11:37:54 1994

My sister and I were debating about this on Saturday-
When DMB opens for phish do you think they'll play a
more straightforward album song orientedset (like
Set I at the Bayou on Sat.) or will they jamout
(like set II)?
I certainly prefer the latter option and also think that If
they want to impress uninitiated Phish fans, they really gotta
jam (although I guess lots of the people there will already be DMB
fans, just cause of the location).
Have they played with WSP yet? What was that like?
Just wondering,
Marco EsKWONdolas.

recommend other bands or other nets; I check it out. This is fun. I enjoy
reading your comments, thanks for keeping me informed. BTW, how easy is it 
for someone in California to get ahold of some DMB? I'd love to get a tape.
Should I check out the cd? When can I expect a show in CA?

a goose and a gander.......

RPPRISIN@VAX1.ACS.JMU.EDU Mon Feb 28 13:26:05 1994

Hey to all you out there. just a couple things about the bayou show the other
night 2/26.

In defense of boyd......
I found that from where i was standing (above Boyd top left hanging off) Boyd's
violin sounded incredible. Maybe it was that I was getting most of the sound
out of the monitor rather than PA or the actual violin but it sounded
incredible. He is also in my opinion better than most of you give him credit
for. Watching his fingers move on the next i would be suprised if you guys out
there who play guitar could play his satellite intro (i think it was satellite)
on guitar. I play my self and would be impressed with myself if I could....
also what more do you want Boyd to explore with everyone else in the band is
playing a blues/rock/whatever instrument except Boyd he is taking a strictly
classical instrument and making it fit in a blues/jazz/rock/whatever band on
that fact alone Boyd stands out whether or not you think he is good is one
thing but give credit where credit is due.....

And on the Goose......
Where Brian and I were standing on Sat. night was right at the door where the
band went on stage and.....when they first came out I carefully stepped out of
the way to allow all members passage or what i thought was all the members.
Leroi was still lagging behind....so to get me out of the way of the door which
i was then blocking he grabbed my ass! 
just a funny story i though i would relate.

 (or anyone else) please clarify when and where Dave is in NY. 
 ----------------------------------------------

that's right and it's no coincidence.  Coran is very thoughtful and 
intelligent as a concert promoter.  On Fri. the 18th of March and Sat. the 
19th DMB will be playing at Schuba's in Chicago IL.  Both nights?? there 
are Dead shows before (at least one of the nights) the shows and should 
hjave time to get from them (the Dead show) to Schuba's.  you may have to 
start making your way out of the show during the encore and fly out of 
there so as not to get caught in the traffic that 50,000? people bring.

the Irving Plaza show in NYC is similiar.  I believe the Dead play Nassua 
on the 23rd,24th and 25th DMB plays on the 26th and then the Dead play 
three more nights at Nassua.  

again i'm not exactly sure on the Dead dates but it works something like 
that.  someone elaborated on the Schuba show but i couldn't dig up the 
message.

can anyone else detail this more?

 When DMB opens for phish do you think they'll play a
 more straightforward album song orientedset (like
 Set I at the Bayou on Sat.) or will they jamout
 (like set II)?

believe it or not as i finished talking to me friend about this i turned 
on my computer and here is this message.  interesting.  at first, i thought 
that it may only be a Remember 2 things set but then thought about where 
it was.  since W&L is a DMB haven, hopefully Dave and the others will 
realize this and just jamout.  maybe a Trey thrown in there.  maybe a 
paige? who can say for sure but here's hoping they realize everyone at 
that show (the majority) has heard the album/the songs on the album enough
already.  

any other thoughts?

can almost bet on a Boyd/phish thing.

Re: Bayou and other stuff

btanen@husc.harvard.edu Mon Feb 28 15:23:56 1994


 		I was also wondering about the song "Best of What's Around."
 	Everyone seems to know the song, but the last time I saw it 
 	performed was in early Sept. at the Floodzone.  Has the band just
 	dumped the song?  I hope not.  Although it's not one of the most 
 	jammin' songs out there, it would be nice to hear once in a while.
 

This is my personal favorite.  I was up front in Athens a few weeks ago 
screaming for it between EVERY SONG BREAK, BOTH NIGHTS, but to no avail.  
Before the saturday show I even made a little sign which I put in front 
of Dave's mic stand, he looked at it, looked at me, and shrugged.

Well, that sign will be showing up in front of him when they're back here 
w/ the Samples in April.

appearance with phish in winston-salem.  anyone know about the validity
here?

also, when this net was formed, we were told that it was being monitered
by red light management via an american online account straight out of
the office at trax.  are you guys still there?

that would make DMB laugh if you said that to them.  (i think) there is a 
misprint in the album.  a few shows after the album was released they 
mentioned it at a show in Trinity CT.  the album says part of the album 
was recorded live at The Muse in Nantucket, RI.  Dave recognized the fact 
that Nantucket isn't in RI and made a oke about it.  funny you mentioned 
RI though.

 rick thompson                      stu_rcthomps@vax1.acs.jmu.edu

they are still there but.... very vaguely.  Management has an account 
that is subscribed to minarets, as do the designers of the album, as does 
DMB's lawyer.  so in reality there are three accounts somehow related to 
the band directly that check out the net.  but....this doesn't mean that 
they actually read minarets.  in fact, recently i had to make a decision 
about DMB "monitering" minarets.  at first, i got that Big Brother 
feeling and was very skeptical.  Minarets, in my mind at least, should be 
a place where talk is free to move in whatever direction it moves (to 
a degree...PhishNet may have taken this a little too far?) without 
outside interference.  i was afraid if someone was "monitering" minarets 
and things came up that were somehow contrary to the band they would 
intercede and "straighten things out."  after discussing this (in a 
roundabout way) i've assumed that whatever 'official' eyes that are out 
there watching are doing so because of their pleasaure for the 
band and not to moniter minarets in anyway. in any case, many of 
the accounts remain unchecked for days and weeks. 

they usually contact me when something comes up that i(minarets) should know 
about and i get in touch with them when a question pops up on minarets that 
needs an immediate answer.

paige, best, and boyd...

STU_RCTHOMPS@VAX1.ACS.JMU.EDU Tue Mar 1 11:02:32 1994












little room to think about that one.  aaaaaaaaahhhhhhh.
also, the last time i saw dave play best of what's around was when
i interviewed him here at jmu (meaning i was in the same room and 
he was playing my guitar...................narf).  my impression is
that he's tiring just a little of the song.  i'd wait until this summer
to see it again, and to the person who's really pestering him for it,
we all know that that only buggs him, and your a lot less likely
to hear it.  the only time he's ever played a request for me was when
he played so much to say on 7-14-93 after a good 5 month hiatus.

nobody, and i mean nobody, on this net is going to say that dave matthews
band should kick boyd out.  nobody hear really disrespects boyd, a lot of
us just think that he tends to give into a really commercial oriented 
mood a lot of the time.  for those of you who like the lyrics to true 
reflections, more power to you.  but have you _ever_ heard them jam the
song out?  i haven't.  (tri-poetry jams don't count, imho)  but if you
go to a good seek-up or blue water it's just sickening the level to which
boyd takes it, and there are a lot of people who i can speak for when i say
we need to see more of that.

Hey, I'm respectful.  I write a little sign, and put it on stage.  They 
haven't played to song in a while (this interview was back in the fall?).

And by the way, I know for a fact Dave DOES do this song by request.  At 
the Wetlands 8/19/93, some dude was screaming for it all night, and what 
was the last song of the show?  Yup, it was the BEST best.

It's not like I'm really pestering him-- I've seen them only four times 
since the summer! (subliminal NE tour grovel)

How come Phish at Bender cost me $20 (plus 3.50 tickmast), but Phish with DMB
costs $16?  Maybe they're trying to make it up to me for paying the $9.50 at
Trax (it used to be $5).
Also, for whoever asked about the Best of What's Around, they played it at
Trax Nov.2 and 23rd.  It is always nice to hear Carter's intro drum roll. 
They played this all the time in '92, I don't know why they stopped; I'll
take it over One Sweet World (or True Reflections or Lover(sorry clare) 
anyday.)  
month straight? (Seek, Tripping, Jane, One Sweet)

Also, could Blake please write me, I don't have your address.  Maybe we can
set up a trade since I'll see you at ARU.

strictly.classical?

In defense of boyd......
I found that from where i was standing (above Boyd top left hanging off) Boyd's
violin sounded incredible. 
also what more do you want Boyd to explore with everyone else in the band is
playing a blues/rock/whatever instrument except Boyd he is taking a strictly
classical instrument and making it fit in a blues/jazz/rock/whatever

um,.i.think.that.if.we.renamed.boyd's."violin".a.FIDDLE,
then.we.could.see.that.the.style.is.not.as.derivative.of."Classical"
as.it.is.of."Bluegrass."....

how to undigestify minarets.net

recently a coupla people have asked me how to undigestify minarets
net, and this is what i found out, just in case anyone else is
the listproc doesn't support a command to simply undigestify the
net, so the only way to do it is to unsubscribe, and then resubscribe.
the cool thing is you can do both in the same message.  just send in

unsubscribe minarets
subscribe minarets your first nameyour last name

and about 2 minutes later you will be privy to an undigestified 
minarets net.  
remember, the address is listproc@moose.uvm.edu, and make sure
that when you tell freinds how to subscribe that you give them this
address so that we can keep subscription messages to a minimum here
on minarets.net.

RICHMOND RAVES   by Andy Garrigue  
triumphant return.

able to get their hands on a Dave Matthews Band compact disc instead of the 
bootleg concert tapes they had been surviving on forever.  They also knew 
that one day the band would sign a major-label recording contract.  THe 
momentum had been building for months.  With weekly shows at the Flood Zone 
and Charlottesville's Trax consistently attracting more than 500 people, 
how could it not happen?
"Remember Two Things" went on sale.  Before the day was done, one record 
store in C'ville rang up more than 1,100 copies, DMB had sold out another 
Trax show and the ink was drying on a multiple-album recording contract 
with RCA records.  According to Big Shots Records out of Athens Ga, who 
shipped 12,500 DMB discs in the first two weeks, "first-day sales of this 
album were bigger than any artist outside REM and Widespread Panic."
interview, said, "I haven't seen anything like that before for an 
independent release.  It comfirms our belief that they're going to be big, 
that they're doing to grow and grow and grow, be a career artist.  And 
we're going to be in it with them for the long haul."
distinctive vocals in a free-ranging melodic mix of jazz, world-beat, folk 
of friends and college radio stations.  There's a Dave Matthews E-net on 
Internet so fans can communicate with each other.  Called "minaret," after 
one of Matthews' songs, it began at the University of Vermont and is solely 
fan operated.  According to manager Coran Capshaw, "It's traveled across at 
least 28 states and to Austrailia and Canada."  Capshaw estimates the  
recording is now sold in 25 states, with total sales over the last three 
months approaching 25,000.

native South Africa that his sister had been murdered by her husband, who 
then took his own life, orphaning their two small children.  Matthews flew 
there to be with his family.  When Matthews returned, the tour resumed, and 
two shows at a 1,000 seat venue in Athens sold out in four hours.  
but there's no question about from where his emotional support has been 
coming.  Commenting on the band's future after bing signed by RCA, he said, 
"I think our success so far has been because we've stayed together.  And 
the remainder of what comes in the future relies very much on us remaining 
a tight unit.  However we mature together in the business, or manage to 
survive whatever comes to us, the main focus for me is for us to stay 
together.  Then everyting will take care of itself."

there you go everyone...  pretty interesting facts, huh?

Gainesville show 3/1

HAUSERBT@pine.circa.ufl.edu Wed Mar 2 10:53:27 1994

Hey all,
amount of people that came out (300-400) being it was the Tuesday night 
before Spring Break, AND more importantly, no CD store in town carries their
disc.  It's amazing what a listing in Rolling Stone can do...Anyway it was
the second time i saw them.  The first time being way back in '91 at Brown's
Island in Richmond.  I was really impressed--here's the sets with a few comments to follow...

Set I
Tripping Billies
Intro-One Sweet World
Lie in Our Graves
Satellite  (under 21 crowd goes nuts at beginning)
Warehouse
Recently
What Would You Say
True Reflections

Set II
Minarets
Typical Situation
Dancing Nancies
Jane
Ants
Watchtower

Halloween

The crowd was interesting, not only larger than expected but younger.  But
a friend of mine in Richmond says the under 21 crowd digs Dave.  There were
a couple people from up north Spring Breaking and following Dave on the way downjudging by the conversation I overheard.  They were yellin for Halloween all
night.  Kinda annoying...Onto the show--it was rockin and jamming, notmuch
on the mellow side. Dave even said before Xmas Song something like."We do have
a softer side, you just haven't seen it too much tonight--I guess were just
pumped to be out of the f***ing cold weather."  I was a little disappointed
with Dave's vocals--he was hard to understand, but the recordings I have sound
kinda the same.  I got that consensus from the friends  with me.  Highlights,
besides Carter the whole night, man does he go off (and sing too), were
True Reflections (about 8-9 minutes) and a rocking Watchtower, which Boyd
and Dave started off with a little picking duel.  That's all I can think of
now..maybe more later.  No tapers...

Peace
Brian

phish/dmb & dave's sister

SPICE@DICKINSON.EDU Wed Mar 2 14:59:20 1994


well first of all, i must have missed somewhere that bit about his sister 
being murdered by her husband... that's awful.  i thought it had been a car 
accident.  wow.  that makes things even more crushing for dave...  i actually 
wrote a song to dave after that happened (in his "style", too -- or as best i 
could manage his vocal style anyway).  maybe i'll send it to him now.  do 
they accept mail at trax?

to be honest, as much as i hope y'all get to hear a really jammin' set with 
phish, i'd bet a dollar to a donut that you'll get remember 2 things.  the 
band is business-minded in a very subtle way (some of you have probably 
noticed this) and it makes sound financial sense to push their album.  so i'm 
sure they will.  they have success in mind (who wouldn't, really) and dave 
has already said -- jokingly, in part, i'm sure -- that he wants to make 
loads and loads of money.  he was kidding, but not too much.  anyway, at the 
moment it looks like i won't be able to catch this fantastic show with dmb/
phish/gsw in my home town but i hope everyone has a great time.  just the 
concept of *any* of the members of the band joining the other band is 
frightening.  absolutely crazy.

also, after reading the latest phish newsletter of a couple days ago, i would 
assume that no taping would be allowed because lexington isn't on the list of 
tapers shows?  or will there just not be a taping section?  god, i'd hate to 
actually miss the show and then not be able to get a tape of it, too....

grumble, grumble.  

take care,

Boyd Lookalike

STU_BEHORTON@VAX1.ACS.JMU.EDU Wed Mar 2 17:46:14 1994

just sitting around watching the news when all of a sudden I saw Boyd on
tv or what I thought was Boyd.  You wouldn't believe the resemblance.
He was wearing glasses very similar to Boyd's and he was wearing a 
cowboy hat as well.  The fellow's name was Stan Sanders (Saunders) and
he's a field reporter for the Baltimore ABC affiliate.  You netters in
the area should check it out, you won't believe it.
I for one still cannot get over that Dave is opening for Phish.  Doesn't
this blow anyone else's gourd?  How many people open for Phish regardless
of whether or not its a local thing?  Not many.  
are really skyrocketing.  I heard it was nine bucks at Trax last week, eight
if you're legal.  This seems to be getting way out of hand especially
when you consider that for an additional $7 one can see Phish as well
granted Dave will not be playing 2+ hrs.  Hopefully this will be the end of 
the hikes at least for now.  If not we could have another Big Head Todd on
our hands.  At least BHT has an album out on a major label though not that
this is an indicator of talent or anything though.

Those damn ticket prices

budkee@unvax.union.edu Thu Mar 3 03:15:08 1994


I don't mean to shock anyone here.  But both the band and the venue
are in control over ticket prices.  As are the laws of supply and
demand.

The prices for a Phish show in the NE are goona be higher for a number
of reasons.  
1) Phish can get the money in the NE
2) The bigger the venue, the more in production and other overhead it
costs to get the show off, so aside from the band gettign paid a lot,
the venue has to shell out a lot to pay people to work.

Now if these places thought no one would go, they wouldn't book the
bands because they would be losing a ton of money on the show.  If
none of these places were willing to pay the band for shows, the band
would likely pay for less.  This happens in areas where they are less
popular.  ie if Phish went to Mexico right now there is a good chance
that they could not fill a place the size of the Centrum.  If DMB were
to go out and play in N Dakota (not meant as a flame) ticket prices
would probably be very low and the band wouldn't make much money off
it, probably not much more than enough to survive.

The venues have to figure out some line where a rise in tickt price
will not take away too much of the audience.  Quite obviously down at
Trax they are not having to drag people in off the street.  They can't
stay in business taking losses.  DMB costs more with their rise in
popularity and the bars have to offset that rise in cost.

Be happy that you can see them every week still (or however often it
is that they play down there.)  My guess is that it won't be long
before you will be complaining that you can only see them once in a
month or less.  And ticket prices will likely be higher then too.

Stay out of the snow (and no smart remarks from those of you in warmer
climates)

Lexington show

jcrother Thu Mar 3 13:26:59 1994

i've mentioned this before but i think i'll say something again cause 
it's been on my mind.

at first i thought that DMB would play a Remember Two things type set 
when they opened for phish.  and this might be the case, who can say for 
sure?  BUT...when i thought about it some more i realized that the show 
could easily go the other way too.  think about were DMB is opening for 
Phish.  Lexington Virginia.  W&L is one of the couple schools that started 
DMB on its way.  hopefully DMB will realize that almost everyone at the 
Lexington show knows DMB already and has heard the album enough.  
hopefully. but like i said, who can say for sure?
