Dave Matthews Band headlined Sunday's HullabaLOU festival at Churchill Downs in Louisville, KY.  Dressed all in black, Dave Matthews himself exclaimed to the crowd, "I thought it would smell a little more like horse shit!" and then ripped in to "You might die trying".

Classics like "Crush", "Stay or Leave", and "Don't Drink the Water" were played in the first half of his show...but then again what Dave Matthews Band songs aren't classics?

Dave himself danced around the stage while the other musicians had their solos. The horns, saxophone, and violin stole the show. Dave reminded the audience to drink plenty of water to balance all the beers in a voice that resembled Adam Sandler's. I've heard rumors that Dave Matthews does most of his shows trashed, but honestly I couldn't tell if he was under the influence or just a goofy dude. Either way, his music was on point and his comments entertaining.

For his encore, Dave Matthews Band brought out Zac Brown from Zac Brown Band and they played the Jimi Hendrix favorite, "All Along the Watchtower". Below you'll find the YouTube video from a concert go-er...it's a little rough, but better than I could get from the media lounge.
