Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds Close Out Mexico Event With Bust Outs Galore

first_imgThough 2017 is an off year for the Dave Matthews Band, its two leading guitarists – Dave Matthews and Time Reynolds – will sure be keeping busy. The duo just wrapped up a three night destination event at the Riviera Maya in Mexico, where they’ve contributed acoustic sets with big bust outs, debuts, and more for each night.Night three was no exception, with Dave & Tim bringing out songs that hadn’t been in their duo repertoire since the 90’s! Through a twenty song set and a double encore, the duo kept the fans in awe with great performances all night long. The show included so many bust outs for a Dave & Tim show, including “The Song That Jane Likes” (first since 3/14/99), “Raven” (7/15/12), “Dive In” (11/18/11) and more! They also played “You Might Die Trying” for the first time as a duo, and welcomed South African guitarist Vusi Mahlasela for the debut performance of a song called “Mother of Africa” as well.There were also plenty of Dave classics to go around, including “Gravedigger,” “#41,” “Typical Situation,” and “Tripping Billies,” the latter of which ended a Dave & Tim set for the first time since 1999. They would return for two encores, including a grand finale of “Stay (Wasting Time),” which was also the song’s first encore appearance at a Dave & Tim show ever! After all these years, it’s certainly inspiring to see Dave Matthews trying new things, and completely rocking them in the process.Check out a video of “Gravedigger” below, courtesy of 2002chow.You can see the show’s full setlist below, as annotated by DMB Almanac.Setlist: Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds | Riviera Maya, Mexico | 2/25/17Set: Little Thing, Funny the Way It Is, The Song That Jane Likes, You Might Die Trying, Too Much, Where Are You Going, Raven, Dive In, Manfood, Gravedigger, Spaceman, Death on the High Seas, #41, Mother of Africa*, Everyday*, Squirm, Wing It, Help Myself, Typical Situation, Tripping BilliesEncore 1: Rye Whiskey, All Along The WatchtowerEncore 2: So Much to Say, Stay (Wasting Time)First time The Song That Jane Likes has been played by Dave & Tim since 3.14.99.First time Raven has been played by Dave & Tim since 7.15.12.First time Dive In has been played by Dave & Tim since 11.18.11.First time Help Myself has been played since 6.29.13 and first time by Dave & Tim since 12.9.10.First time Tripping Billies has been played as a closer at a Dave & Tim show since 1.20.99.First time Stay (Wasting Time) has been by Dave & Tim since 3.13.99 and first ever time in the encore at a Dave & Tim show.First time You Might Die Trying has been played by Dave & TimeFirst time Mother of Africa has been played ever* = with Vusi Mahlaselalast_img read more

Group discusses election changes

first_imgSaint Mary’s student senate met Tuesday night to discuss changes to election policies and upcoming events on campus.Student body president Kat Sullivan said the goal for the alteration of election policies “is to establish a better understanding of the policies both for the candidates and the student body as a whole.”Senate members voted to implement changes to election policies, including permitting abroad students to campaign with a present Saint Mary’s student. Sullivan said Feb. 26 is the deadline for all campaign materials. Students can submit materials through an elections portal on OrgSync, she said.“Every candidate that is running will have to sign something saying that they have read these policies and they agree to abide by these terms,” student body vice president Maddy Martin said.Heritage Week at Saint Mary’s will begin Feb. 3, and various events will take place on campus, including a Heritage Week dinner in the Stapleton Lounge, saidCarmen Cardenas, president of the Student Diversity Board.Throughout the week, students will be encouraged to share their heritage, she said.“Any sort of Heritage – you could be the first person ever to attend Saint Mary’s, but you just want to write about how much you love Saint Mary’s,” Cardenas said.Cardenas said students who write admirable stories about their heritage will receive prizes, and the winners will be announced at the heritage dinner.An event titled, “Sugar Makes the World Go ‘Round,” will bring international desserts to the Noble Family Dining Hall on Feb. 6, Cardenas said. Following Heritage Week will be Women’s Appreciation Week, beginning Feb. 24, with the Diverse Student Leadership Conference (DSLC), taking place March 25 to 26.The DSLC will have two keynote speakers: Faisal Alam, a gay, Pakistani-American, and Kevin Powell, Cardenas said.Cardenas said a Saint Mary’s professor’s survey has found that diversity is not a popular conversation topic at the College.“On the worst points, Saint Mary’s students, faculty and staff have shown that there is not enough talk about religious diversity or sexual orientation,” she said.The goal of the conference will be to create dialogue on these subjects among Saint Mary’s students, Cardenas said.Martin said another event to look forward to is “Women Honoring Women,” to take place in April.“‘Women Honoring Women’ is a night where students can nominate a faculty member or someone who’s had an impact on their life at Saint Mary’s,” she said.Martin said students and their nominees are invited to a dinner where a nominee is voted Woman of the Year.last_img read more
