Don’t Fear The Reaper, DMB Style

Yesterday I met up with Sean, Erin, and Clarissa for the Dave Matthews Band 2013 Summer Tour at Shoreline Amphitheater. If you ever get a chance to see him live, do it. I had an absolute blast!

As always, it was an amazing show. What I love most about DMB is that lawn seats are all you need. You take a blanket, have a beer, and just relax and listen to the music. His songs morph into these epic jam sessions and his in-between songs banter is absolutely hilarious.

He played “Crush” (my favorite song), but I think one of the best moments if the show was their cover of “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” by Blue Öyster Cult. All I could think about the entire time was “needs more cowbell”! It was a seriously good cover. I always judge a band by how well they play live since we all know what kind of magic the folks in recording studios can work. DMB is honestly one of those groups that I think is way better live than on a recording. There’s something amazing about a very talented group of people coming together to just make music!

Favorite Song Friday – “Crush”

This week’s favorite song Friday selection is in honor of one of my all time favorite bands, Dave Matthews Band. I’m super excited to announce that I’ve added another show to my 2013 concert calendar (click here for the Concert Calendar Page) – we’re going to see DMB (again!) with Sean and Erin in September.

Crush“, from the Before These Crowded Streets album, has always been my favorite DMB song – I love how mellow it is. The bass line is kick ass and I just absolutely love Dave’s voice. Can’t wait for the show!!!
