Damn you, Bristow. You got DMB last night, and we missed ’em there this year.

Matthew and I had to console ourselves with a pathetic approximation of a DMB concert held in our den. Sure, there was plenty of space to move about. No B.O. to be found. Unlike last year, there was no new sticky and grotesque-smelling substance on my flip flop to remove the next day because there was a newly-minted drinker in the crowd. Look sweetie, it’s ok not to like the taste of alcohol, but if the alcoholic beverage you’re drinking to get a buzz is marketed as a fruity drink but actually smells like dying feet, you should always find another source for a buzz instead of just leaving it on the ground for everyone’s feet to use for soccer. But there were also no new friends to make who could talk to us about the 100+ DMB concerts they had seen (WHERE DO THEY FIND THE TIME???), and there was of course no constantly-smiling Carter to brighten my mood and angry Dave (well, on some of my favorites like “Don’t Drink the Water” and such) to get me all pumped. Oh man, experiencing DMB from the pit is one of the highlights of summer to me. July seems awfully far away.

So, as I was saying. It’s summer. The time when my mind begins endlessly compiling my ultimate DMB setlist. I’ve only got one night to play with this year, so I have to make it count.

I always find it interesting how much Matthew’s and my ultimate setlists diverge. I would encourage the band to pick my list since it’s likely they are waiting for this submission before July’s show. It’s just generally known that I’ve got better taste. OK, not really. But I’m much funnier than he, so that’s absolutely got to count for something. Also, I run the blog. So there you have it.
