View Full Version : Newbie from NE :)

Hey everyone, what's happening! Newbie guy from Nebraska, yes we have music here, it's tough to imagine I know! :chicken: I've been a DMB fan for about 10 years now, although once I saw him in concert up at Alpine Valley, WI back in 02, I was completely hooked! Now that I'm working from home, it's easier for me to do more when it comes to Dave, and I came across this amazing site! Thanks so much for #1, putting it together, and #2 having great fans that are around to make it a great common meeting place. I've told all of my friends that Dave fans are the best kind of fans and friends to have.

Looking forward to interacting with "ya'll" (Nebraska redneck talk meaning 'you all' for those without a translater) :guitar:

I went to the Saturday show with Tripping Billies as the opening song, which was awesome. It's funny, I went to the show thinking I knew all of his stuff but hadn't heard Before These Crowded Streets much as I had lost the CD and hadn't heard of The Lillywhite Sessions before hand, which a lot of the songs seemed to come from. Busted Stuff had come out shortly before, and I hadn't listened to it as much either. It helped propel me into wanting to know a lot more about Dave and how much the fan base knows about the music.

This year will be the 1st year I will get to go to both the Sat and the Sun show, I'm psyched about it! Then a month later I'm driving from Omaha out to The Gorge (22+ hour trip there), so it's going to be a great summer, regardless of what else happens! :)

So I have to ask, as I'm new to more of the 'other side of being a fan' (trading, taping, etc...), what's a good place to learn about taping shows both on DVD and other formats?
