image from blogs.pitch.com Annie Lowrey at Slate has published a great overview of the Dave Mathews Band. In her piece, which is well worth the read, she outlines some very interesting figures from the group. Some of these have been floating around for awhile and others are new. 2011 will be the first year the DMB takes off from touring.
