holy crap!


The University of Virginia announced today that the Dave Matthews Band will headline the grand opening of the new John Paul Jones arena in two concerts.

Larry Wilson, general manager of the University of Virginia’s John Paul Jones Arena, that Dave Matthews Band will play for the grand opening event for the 16,000 seat facility. The band will play on Friday, September 22 and Saturday, September 23, 2006.

The concerts will be the first for the Dave Matthews Band since their appearance at Scott Stadium in April 2001.

So this is my first DMB related entry, a little explanation. Been a fan for like 8 years. Started listening when I was like 16. Pretty freaking influential in my formative late teeniness, but of late their shows have been occasions for overpriced-heavy-drinking and one, er, run-in with the law. First time, I swear. I lost count but I've wasted probably like a thousand dollars over the years in tickets.

AND NOW THIS! FUCKING CAN'T WAIT! That new arena is (going to be) be-yootiful.
