So far, no tapers have u/d'd to dreamingtree.org, BUT I have some pics I took with my illicitly smuggled in camera!

DMB in Dallas

I went to the DMB concert on May 2, 2009 in Dallas, Texas. Here is my experience for posterity. ^o^

Wow, it's quite long! )

you've given me these loving wings

Somehow I ended up on YouTube, DMB surfing, if you will. (I'm pretty sure it began by watching Carter's Under the Table and Drumming instructional videos - insane!) In any case, I just couldn't help by smile at the beginning of this song with Dave's adorable gestures. This, paired with the great solo Roi has (plus the inclusion of Butch:( ) led me to post this here. I admit, I have somewhat of a soft spot for this song as it was first played on my birthday.

I challenge you to watch this and not grin all goofy at the start. :D

I'm [personal profile] hillarygayle, one of your Faithful Mods. [personal profile] quiara is the other one. We don't plan on doing tons of modding other than to keep out spambots & get conversations rolling. I live in Arkansas and I've been a DMB fan since about 1996, when I first heard "Crash Into Me" on the radio. The guy I was dating at the time didn't like it (he was a bit conservative and felt the "hike up your skirt a little more" line was "vulgar"), but I loved it. Should've been my first clue it wasn't gonna work, yeah? Anyway, later in college one of my suitemates had BTCS, and I fell in love with the album after hearing her play it. I got it for myself and I've been hooked ever since. I admit I didn't really get into the live stuff until about 2005! Most bands don't sound great live, and I'd honestly never heard of one that did. I found "Live at Red Rocks '95" in the used bin at Hastings for $8, and I couldn't say no to cheap music. That's when I discovered that DMB isn't just "good" live...they're BETTER live. Since then I've done a lot of collecting live albums and downloading concerts. I've been to just 2 concerts: Dallas in Sept 2007 and Memphis in August 2008. It is a sore spot in my life that the Memphis concert hasn't had a bootleg released.

This summer, I'll be attending 2 concerts: [personal profile] quiara and I will be heading to Dallas on May 2, and then we'll be hitting the Little Rock date on Sept 29 (gotta support the band coming to our little podunk state).

So that's me. Now it's your turn!

Incredible. There isn't a single song on that setlist that I would change. I don't think I've ever said that about a concert & setlist before. The "Last Stop" tease was really cruel. I was watching the #dmb stream on Twitter, and I saw several people say that Dave was out on stage making fun of the crowd, who were chanting "Last Stop!" He came out on stage and looked confused and said "Ass prop?!" according to one fan who was tweeting from the concert. Then they TEASED it and totally didn't go back to it! Cold, band. Very cold.
