Dave Matthews Band
Cruzan Amphitheatre, West Palm Beach
Friday, July 20

Better than: Eating a $10 hot dog and chugging $5 water while watching talentless musicians perform mostly prerecorded pop music.

Dave Matthews Band isn't just a group that made the soundtrack for popping cherries in the late '90s. Actually, it's a band of sorcerers who've harnessed the powers of the Grateful Dead to cast a love spell on thousands and thousands of bad dancers, resulting in a massive DMB cult following of poorly dressed music lovers. These improv wizards packed a very sweaty Cruzan Amphitheatre with both casual and overly dedicated fans last night for the first of two West Palm Beach shows.
