Are you the person crazily searching the roadsides for hitchhikers with the unreasonable hope that one of them will be Dave Matthews? Have you already picked up a few middle aged white dudes with broken bikes only to find that they are, in fact, not the real Dave? Can you identify yourself on our list of stoners you'll meet at a DMB show? Do you visit antsmarching.org more than you check your own email?

If the answer is yes to any of these, and you still don't have a ticket to this weekend's doubleheader DMB shows, then you're in luck! We at County Grind have two tickets to Dave's Cruzan Amphitheatre concert that we're just itching to pass off on you. Click on for instructions.

I'm Dan's (CaptainoftheCheese's) girlfriend. His love for Dave makes me a tiny bit jealous. He has tried everything he could to win a pair for he and I. It's almost obnoxious in an endearing kind of way. Anyway, if you can't find it in your heart to give him the tickets, could you let me win them instead so I could surprise him by taking him to the show at the last minute? It would be pretty funny. I'll take pictures. Think about it. :)

The first time I ever saw Dave Matthews Band was during my senior year of high school (I didn't graduate until December of 1998). That Summer I was suckered into schlepping to Coral Sky Ampitheatre by my high school sweetheart. The ladies love Dave.

I didn't think I was going to enjoy the show. My metal and punk friends poked fun at me something fierce for going to the show. They made whip sound effects; one even threw a tampon at me and told me to bring it - just in case. At the show, I specifically remember noticing my body grooving to "Stay" and thinking, "I am REALLY glad that my friends can't see this. I would've never hear the end of it." After that Summer, going to see DMB in West Palm Beach became a South Florida tradition. In fact, I have never seen DMB in any other city - a fact I sometimes lament and other times applaud.

When I was 22 (2002) Dave began doing two West Palm Beach shows every Summer. Back then it was the Mars Ampitheatre. After that the tradition continued (with the exception of 2003) through two more name changes of the theatre (Sound Advice, and now Cruzan).

Since 1998 there have only been three Summers in which I missed a DMB show - I didn't see Dave in 2003, 2011, or 2012. In 2003 and in 2011 Dave had to skip the West Palm Beach tour dates - to no fault of my own I could not uphold the tradition.

The only dates in the tradition that I missed where DMB performed in West Palm Beach were the two last year (July 20th and 21st, 2012). Those two days will forever burn in my heart because I HAD to work.

July 20th and 21st were the final two days of a Summer camp I was a counselor forIn Boca. Since I was the newest counselor (i.e. the lowest bro on th totem poll), I had to be the overnight counselor for the final weekend (i.e. the weekend where kids go crazy and pull fire alarms all night).

This year I am just a lowly graduate student at FAU in the college of Education. Because of this, my cash flow (or lack thereof) is THE weakest it has ever been in my life (I had more money in my bank account when I was in middle school). Because of this, I was forced to make a difficult choice. I could either pay my car insurance or buy a DMB ticket. It broke my heart to do it, but I am certain that Dave would want me covered by personal injury protection - he (Dave) is a nice guy like that.

I have desperately called every radio station in the phone book to see if I could win a ticket to no avail. I even went to a bar last week that was giving two tickets away (obviously I didn't win). I am pleading to the depraved souls who take their journalism licks at Broward Palm Beach New Times to take pitty on me. I am on my knees as I type these words. Please help me to evade the sting of regret that consumed my heart last year when I missed Dave. Help me to right the wrong I endured last Summer. I beseech thee! Aid me in continuing my South Florida Summer tradition.

Even though my streak - like my heart - has a hole in it, with your help, I can begin the streak anew. Without the New Times, I will be doomed to nurse my Daveless Summer soul for at least one more year. I may not be the most deserving, but I would be the most grateful.

Thank you for reading. Good luck everyone! :)

Sincerely,

Dan

I haven't seen DMB since college! Tickets would be awesome - after my brand new house flooded last week, it would be a great excuse to get out of my sad home and celebrate with some upbeat, relaxing sounds!

I sing Dave Matthews Band songs to my son like lullabies to rock him to sleep at night and have been since he was in utero. My husband and I blast DMB music driving down the street singin' along while our son dances in his car seat in the back trying to sing along too. When things just aren't goin right in life, DMB music is something that makes things better even for just a few moments. So, I'm gonna kiss kiss make a wish and hope that it'll come true.

My wife said she would leave me and our two kids if I didn't win these Dave tickets.  County Grind, is that something you really want on your conscience?  Hmm?  Breaking up our happy home?! Do you?  Thank you in advance for saving our marriage!
