Tweet (Photo by Instagram user liz4dmb41) Today I typically make a statement of how hopeless and romantic I am. Today I enter the final year of my 20s and I can say I am still both. In the weeks leading up to this day I made several foolish decisions that can confirm this. The first […]

Tweet This past weekend I attended my 34th Dave Matthews Band show. It’s been three years since I last saw him so I was excited to jump back into the annual tradition. There are only three bands I’ll consider seeing live and DMB is one of them. While my fandom has waned from when I […]


On Rewarding Your Membership

by Patrick on October 4, 2010

Tweet Even though I struggle with finding companions and I can’t always make a show every year, I am still a member of the DMB Warehouse. It’s the official Fan Club of the Dave Matthews Band and I’ve been a member for almost 10 years. When my membership comes up for renewal I don’t blink […]


Tweet It’s a vicious cycle Last week I talked about the DMB concert I missed out on, and while it’s been the only time I wasn’t able to find somebody to come see a show with me- trying to find last-minute concert partners has always been a problem for me. I never thought DMB was widely […]


The $170 Mistake

by Patrick on September 24, 2009

Tweet It was a setlist that started with Proudest Monkey and ended with All Along The Watchtower, a pretty good encore that I haven’t heard in awhile. Unfortunately I won’t hear that song or any of the others on tonight’s setlist. Tonight Dave Matthews stepped onto the stage at Toyota Pavilion in Scranton, PA and […]


DMB Week 2009

by Patrick on June 2, 2009

Tweet In 2002 I followed The Dave Matthews Band around New England over five days where I saw three shows (two in person, one online) in what I dubbed, “DMB Week.” Last year I spent back-to-back weekends going to DMB shows in New York and Virginia. It’ll probably be awhile til I can afford to […]


From U-Street to UVA

by Patrick on April 24, 2009

Tweet It was 11 AM Saturday morning but I wanted to stay in bed. Friday night was an intense progression with Nicole from U-Street to Adams Morgan: Started at Local 16, encountered a line of douchebags waiting for the roof bar, stay downstairs and people watched Moved on to Dan’s Cafe where I introduced Nicole […]

Tweet I’m behind on a lot of stuff. I’ll find some time to explain why later but I’ll just say that I spent the weekend in Charlottesville to see the Dave Matthews Band. I’ve been so disconnected I’m behind on e-mails, facebook, blogs, and probably everything else in life. So as I type this I’m […]


The Crash Album

by Patrick on April 18, 2009

Tweet Today Nicole and I will be driving down to Charlottesville to see Dave Matthews Band for the 33rd time. So I thought I’d post a quick link to a remix album I was sent on Thursday. DJ Moondance has remixed Jay-Z with the stylings of DMB and called it The Crash Album. It’s pretty […]


RIP LeRoi Moore

by Patrick on August 21, 2008

Tweet I almost didn’t find the right bottle. I was rushing through the isles of Harris Teeter, scanning labels for the right one. At the end of the Napa Valley section I found what I’ve been searching for- a Virginia wine. I took home a local chardonnay but we’ll get back to that later. I […]
