Heaven's Amphitheater

life has been a roller coaster for me lately as you all know. its sad to say but for some reason that has become the normal for a lot of us. i personally don't do well with the ups & downs of life. i like routine & consistency with a little adventure thrown in here & there.

last year in May when DMB announced that they were taking 2011 off from touring - i was down. then in January of this year they announced that they would do 4 multi day festivals this year to celebrate their 20th anniversary - i was up.

yesterday they announced the final 2 stops for them.

like music to my ears the 'last stop' will be in my backyard. i have looked at the other 3 stops & contemplated them all. it didn't take me long to realize my all time favorite place to see the band is the Gorge.

fans travel from all over the world to experience DMB here. i believe that Dave once referred to it as 'heaven's amphitheater'.

its an amazing & special location to see any artist at.

this past week i have had an ongoing conversation with a friend about music & the roll it can play in our lives. as you know for me music is a constant in my life just like seeing DMB at the Gorge each year. as i have said before some people find my passion for this band odd or strange & others are fascinated with it. to each their own & i respect that. my annual trip to the Gorge for me is always a magical experience & it reminds me that where i practice my faith does not always have 4 walls.

enjoy your weekend!

Thought of you when I read on facebook that DMB would be playing at The Gorge. It's always been a dream of mine to see him there (or anywhere for that matter - ha!). Maybe someday....

How fun for you. I hope your day is a little brighter and things start getting better. I love DMB too.

DMB at the Gorge... What a great combo! I currently have a Dave Matthews in my CD player in my car. Enjoy.
