Dave Matthews Band at The Bayou, Washington, DC, USA


My first show at The Bayou and my first Dave Matthews Band show. It was a rainy night and my sister was going to school at the University of Virginia at the time, and she was telling me about this great band I had to see. So we went down there with a couple friends (Karen and Michelle) without tickets, only to find it was sold out. We waited outside as the rain came down off the Whitehurst Freeway onto us while Sharon begged for spare tickets in her UVA hat. Eventually we got enough tickets to get in, and we worked our way to the side. We only caught half the show, but it didn’t matter as I just fell in love with the band. It didn’t hurt that they covered “All Along The Watchtower” with guest Warren Haynes.
