This might seem kind of random, but today in my email I got a Dave Matthews Band announcement. Just the sight of it made me sad... the layout of the email was extremely Old Navy/American Eagle-esque. Don't get me wrong, I still *LOVE* DMB, but it seems that they've been selling out more and more. Maybe its a good thing that such good music is growing ever-popular. I know this isn't a new concept at all, but its just getting to me how freakin mainstream DMB is, and how the stigma with being a DMB is one of being like a "frat boy" or just a partier with no taste in music. I just wish that Dave and the boys could get back to their roots and have a really small venue show with lots of jam sessions, and DIDN'T charge 60 fucking dollars a ticket. I guess that all artists change their style over time, but it seems like dave has changed in a bad way. ugh... I guess I'll go back to listening to old dave stuff and pretend like he's not just out there to make a profit (which is what it seems like DMB is all about right now).
