8 days and counting….

So, who’s writing this blog anyway??  And how did you know that today I was gonna cover the opening act??

Oh well, steal my thunder as you may, I shall not be deterred.

The opening act is scheduled to be Victor Wooten of Bèla Fleck and the Flecktones.  Bèla’s band has long toured with Dave (in fact we ran into them at a hotel room when picking someone up in Dallas before the concert one year).  The Flecktones and DMB have similar “earthy,” “instrumental” sounds, and Victor is more of a Jazz musician (read: “boring”).  I’ve heard Victor on several Dave live tracks, and he’s good accompaniment, but hardly an opening act.  In other words, he’s nothing worth missing a good quality Dallas dinner for (hint hint).

Today’s Trivia:

Dave Matthews Band has 2 ice cream flavors named after them.  Dave Matthews Band Magic Brownies and One Sweet Whirl (a play on words from one of their cooooler songs, “One Sweet World”….this one seems to no longer be a flavor, but it once was…I assure you!)

Black Kettle Countdown - 9 Days

So, Rick has reminded me that I haven’t been providing due attention to my blog.

Journal Entry – 11:24 AM : Pot called Kettle “black.”

Just Kidding, but I didn’t even think to post a “giddy” countdown for the Dave Matthews Concert up here, but now that it has been brought to my attention….a countdown you shall have.  Let them eat cake.  (wow, that sounded kinda sinister…)

Anyway, Dave Matthews and his Band will be playing at the Smirnoff Music Centre on Saturday, September 3rd – 9 days away.  Rick, Tina, Cassie, and myself will be in attendance and dancing like fools.  If you were cool, you’d be coming too….

I figure in lieu of some sort of grand pomp and circumstance that would have required much more preparation, I will just provide daily links and trivia that will serve to edify all and continue to impress upon the world that Dave Matthews is one of the greatest singers, songwriters, and performers that this generation has known.

Today’s Trivia:  Dave Matthews’ father was a Physicist.

Check out these videos for his two most recent singles off his latest album: American Baby & Dream Girl  (youll never guess who the “dream girl” is…)

(I know, I know…I don’t like Yahoo! either, but for some reason iTunes doesn’t have any Dave videos and they don’t have any Dave songs besides the latest album!)

Until next time,
