Snap o’ the day: DMB the stadium-fillers
I just found this special section I built with Bill Ramsey back in 2001 at C-ville Weekly. One of my fondest memories of working there was the day Bill and I pitched (while we air-guitared to the tune of DMB's "I Did It") the idea of the paper's first-ever special section, a celebration of Dave Matthews Band's "Homecoming" April 21, 2001 concert. This framed cover hangs at Cane's, the chicken wingery located at the site of the short-lived Krispy Kreme shop on Emmet. With all this talk of legends like Rod Stewart, the Police, and Billy Joel unable to fill John Paul Jones Arena, it should be pointed out that besides filling Scott Stadium, this quintet recently filled JPJ two nights in a row.
