Make Me Believe
This weekend, I experienced the worst nightmare of any Dave Matthews Band fan. I sat, with tickets in hand, to a show in Dallas, while I was in North Carolina. As sometimes happens to all of us, unpredictable and uncontrollable circumstances arose that made my well-plotted plans a bust. And despite knowing better, I felt like a monkey who was pushed from her dreaming tree.

Dave Matthews performs new song "Mercy" on Jimmy Fallon show

Last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Dave Matthews performed a new song called "Mercy". Jimmy posted a tweet on Monday stating that Dave would be performing a song off the new album. The late night performance was acoustic with Roots guitarist Captain Kirk. Steve Lillywhite responded to a few fans on twitter expressing that "Mercy" is "not just acoustic on the album" and "its not quiet on the ablum". This solo version of the new song is only a taste of what's to come.

Jimmy Fallon also sung a rendition of "The Walk of Shame" with a little help from Dave Matthews, while President Barack Obama joined the Roots to slow jam the news.

This has fans itching for more. There has been very little information leading up to this performance to tell what will be on the new album and when we will see it. This is clearly a start of what's to come and we can't wait to see what's in store. The 2012 Summer tour kicks off in Woodlands, TX on May 18th!

More Cowbell!
As promised, the Dave Matthews Band rocked Washington State last weekend for the 15th consecutive year. Just a few of the highlights from the group’s most recent stint at the Gorge Amphitheatre include, surprise fan favorites, such as: “American Baby Intro,” “Big Eyed Fish,” “#40,” “Loving Wings,” “Shotgun,” “Raven,” “Halloween,” “Seek Up,” and a killer “Lie In Our Graves,” which, amazingly, wrapped itself around seven unsuspecting tunes. But perhaps the biggest bombshell was dropped during the encore of night two, when the band busted out Blue Öyster Cult's 1976 hit, “Don’t Fear The Reaper.”

Love is Pure and Fine
Just the other day, someone asked me to name my favorite Dave Matthews Band song. In truth, I have a love/hate relationship with this question. I love it because it gets me thinking about all of the amazing qualities of tunes like “Bartender,” “Seek Up,” “One Sweet World,” “Pig,” “#41,” “Lover Lay Down,” and “Two Step,” to name a few. But I hate it because it is nearly impossible for me to choose only one track. Many times, I reconcile my differing thoughts by finding the best option for my life at the moment, which in itself points to one reason why I love this band so much; their ever evolving, yet somehow consistent sound. But today, after much thought, I realized that of all the DMB works that I adore, “Granny,” is, and in some ways always has been, my best-loved.
