Dave Matthews Band - Hartford, CT - 1996-06-12

Dave Matthews Band at Meadows Music Theatre in Hartford, CT on June 12, 1996.

I won these tickets from a radio station. I was more curious about DMB than a fan. Then as now, I never really paid attention to them.

Traffic getting in was horrifying. It was like every upper middle class hippy kid in New England was going to this show. The venue was packed, the lawn overflowing with people. The music was not terribly challenging but very competently played. He's a great songwriter.

All in all, it wasn't really for me but I am glad I got to see it first-hand. Here's the setlist:

So Much To Say
#41
Say Goodbye
Lie In Our Graves
Too Much
Seek Up
Rhyme & Reason
Two Step
Crash Into Me
Jimi Thing
Drive In Drive Out
Lover Lay Down
Recently (Pretty Girl Outro)
