etlist for the Dave Matthews Band show at Notre Dame. It ended up not being as packed as I had expected, and I moved around a bit. I was seated a ways away from Doug, and ended up moving more toward some back, center and vacant bleachers as time went on and just soaked up the experience by myself. I've never been a huge DMB fan, and this was my first time hearing them live. Most of the time I heard them as simply playing from Doug's room in the house. Doug's somewhat disappointed summation after the show, that "it was about the same as if I went into my room and played Crash
really loud" sounded apt. But since the songs were only vaguely known to me, I didn't miss out so much on a night that didn't get much improvisation.
Mostly Doug was dismayed, if not furious, that the band had showed up the night before at Bridget McGuire's, with some campus cover band playing. Doug would have given a lot to have had them hear the Freeks in full form, and to have played his songs. Still, Mark was still so new to stepping into lead guitar that even Doug's great songwriting would not yet have been shown at its best....
