Also, you should stay for DMB, they might impress you.

THey are opening for 6 or so shows in the northeast starting at spac and ending in Burgettstown in early June.

Thanks. I just figured out how to put Dave Matthews Band and Hold Steady into Google and I got the dates. I'm very stupid.

I do think it will be interesting - Dave plays big houses. I'm not sure that his crowd will quite get Lord, I'm Discouraged. "Why's the creepy weirdo with glasses so sad?"

Dry Venue??????? Wow. I guess I could drink hard enough for my buzz to last an hour and then leave when Dave comes on. Or take a handfull of drugs.

I saw Dave last summer in Tampa and didn't hate it. Realy cool lightening storm during the show and did I mention the casino?

No, the dry venue is just for a Hold Steady show, not one of the DMB shows.

See what I mean? About the stupid thing?

How can they sing about Ybor City and not come to Ybor city? It's not fair I tell ya.
I know, I need to find a good bar close by and drink a lot before the show.

Opening bands rarely fair well, no matter who they are paired with. If THS can convert a few aging frat-boys and hammered underage girls over to their side, then all the power to them.

I'm not the Dave hater that many people are around here.  I did see him last year at my wife's urging and I had a really good time.  I thought they put on a good show and that dude can hit a drum with the best of 'em.  The crowd was not my favorite part - all the guys I used to fight with and all of the girls who used to ignore me in high school were there acting like I used to act in high school.

And there was an awsome, only-in-Florida thunder storm that delayed the show for over an hour and continued through the show - it was truly spectacular.  I had the feeling that Dave wanted no part of the weather and most of his legions seemed let-down by the show.  We then gambled at the casino for the rest of the night - always a plus.
I'm not saying it's easy...walking into sweet oblivion.

I am.  I've been enjoying RAGS whilst waiting for Teeth Dreams.  I'll be catching them in the UK during May;  it's been too long since I was at a THS gig.  :beer:

My 10" vinyl of RAGS arrived yesterday, some ten months after the download became available.  Apparently there were delays in production!  :grin:

I cant wait to hear this whole album.  Faith in the Future was one of my favorites from a year or two back.

He should've played that when I saw him in Chicago a few months back! Wonder how that song would translate in a live setting...
