This Dave Matthews Band Road Trip Story is What Live Music is All About

Matt Inman | April 18, 2018


Seth Haber, founder and CEO of  Trek Light Gear, took to Twitter today to share a truly wonderful throwback story about a little big road trip he took with four of his friend while they were freshmen in college, when they borrowed a friend's car and set off on the 18-hour trek from Hartford, CT, to Roanoke, VA, to see a Dave Matthews Band concert, which was set for April 18, 1998. 

That premise alone could fuel a 90-minute stoner comedy, but the real story is even better. While Twitter maybe isn't the greatest medium for a tale that's more than a few sentences, the platform does allow for discrete sections of the story, punctuated by choice photos or gifs, and Haber does quite well with these.

I won't spoil the ending, but suffice to say things turn out pretty well for Haber and his buds. Fair warning: this story will probably make you want to head out on summer tour with your favorite band—or at least pine for the days when that's a thing that you had the time and energy to do.  Enjoy.
