Vacation? What's That?

This last week I went to Rogers, Arkansas (home of the very first Walmart apparently) to see my sixth (?) Dave Matthews Band concert. I don't know what it was but I think it was the best show I've ever been at. I've enjoyed every Dave Matthews show I've been to but this one just seemed better. With every show, I create a wishlist of what I would like to hear. Usually I hear two, maybe three, songs from that list but on this particular night, they played seven from the list I made. It also marked the first time that I heard "The Song That Jane Likes" which is one of the first songs Dave Matthews wrote and, after numerous relistenings, is probably my favorite Dave Matthews Band song. One thing that actually stood out to me is that they didn't play anything from Away From the World. I guess they didn't play anything from Busted Stuff either but considering AFtW is their most recent album, it just stood out to me. Anyway, I think I can ignore that solely based on the amazing performance of "Stand Up" they played that night.

And because I've spent so much space talking about "The Song That Jane Likes", here is what I recorded. Many apologies for the guerrilla-style recording.

"What are you up to, Brutus?"

"I have to submit the dates I want to take my vacation so I'm staring really hard at this calendar and I'm hoping that if I stare at it long enough, much like one of those Magic Eye things, that the perfect date will emerge."
