So I'm seeing Dar in two weeks (!) and I was wondering, at her shows is there any merch besides her albums/books? Like t-shirts or anything?

5:21PM - Dar in Inside Chappaqua magazine

Just thought I'd mention that there's an article about Dar in Inside Chappaqua magazine (an apparently free local magazine). Article's online here.

9:31AM - Early Dar Tapes + Icons

Hello to everyone at the community! I just recently found it and was so excited to see all the Dar-love. I also noticed that in the past, members have uploaded mp3 files from the early tapes, but unfortunately all of the links have become deactivated. I was wondering if it would be remotely possible for anyone to re-upload the files for me. If so, I would really, really appreciate it! (Also, if anyone happens to have "Canada Girls" on mp3 and could upload that, it would be awesome!)

Since I'm making a request, I thought I'd also post some Dar icons I've been making lately. I'm not great at making icons, but anyone is more than welcome to take any of them!

Cut for iconsCollapse )

9:34PM - Dar at Ravinia

Hello, fellow Dar fans!

I was lucky enough to see Dar live at Ravinia last Friday with thisisnotemily.  The performance was gorgeous, and so as not to forget it I wrote down the songs she played so that I could make a playlist.  The problem is, I simply can't remember the very first song she played.  Was anybody else at that concert, and could help me remember?  Thanks in advance.

4:56PM - shirts

So this is probably a far shot, but does anyone know where I can get my hands on Peach Branch Horse and Bible Camp shirt? I've been looking off and on for over a year; I would really love to find one.

Speaking of tour merchandise, where has it all gone? I am going to a couple shows in the next couple months (first one is tonight!) and I am hoping so much that the merchandise is back....

9:50PM - Saw Dar recently

I was very very privileged about a week ago to see Dar at a private appearance.

I'm working my summers these days at a summer camp in Vermont (one that I have been attending since I was eight and am now twenty one). Through some odd chance it just so happens to be the camp that Dar and her sister Julie attended when they were younger. I have pictures of her name on the 1980 name boards from Aloha Camp, but have no means to upload it currently. I know she was a camper for a few summers at Aloha Hive, where I work, and another two at Aloha which is our sister camp and for girls who are a little older. And in the mid eighties she worked as a counselor at Aloha Hive.

I saw her play back in 1998 at an appearance she made at Aloha, in fact the performance that turned me on to her music in the first place. And now almost ten years later, and I a devout fan got to see her play again for us members of the camp community.

She was quite adorable all in all, she only played three songs:

The Babysitter's Here
Fishing in the Morning
When I Was a Boy

She played songs she thought the girls would relate to (they're between 7 and 12 so they've had limited experiences in love and such issues) and took a whole mess of questions.

I also took some pictures both of her playing and of her sitting and talking with the crowd which i will probably post when i have the cord for my camera. As I said I'm at a summer camp and I can't bring my entire life from home.

It was a really unforgettable experience, though I do wish she had played more songs.

6:32PM - Dar set list?

Hi everyone:

Just curious whether any of you have been to a Dar show in the past month or two - and if so, can you remember her set list at all? Dar is coming to the Palms Playhouse in California in a few weeks and I'd love to get a better feel for what she's playing at live shows right now. I'm a big fan but am not as enthusiastic about her latest CD as I would like to be, so I'm kind of in the mood to hear more classics. Anyway, I figured I'd ask around here and see if anyone has been to one of Dar's shows recently.

Thanks in advance!

6:37AM - Mixed Bag Radio

This is from last year at some point when Dar was on XM's The Loft on a program called Mixed Bag Radio. It's a bit large (about 80MBs) but includes a couple 'live' versions of a few different tracks. It's about an hour long or so.

After All (Acoustic Cafe October 30 2002)
Are You Out There (Acoustic World Cafe)
Calling The Moon

The Great Unknown "Well, this is a song about nuclear waste. And it's also a song about my family." 
What Do You Love More Than Love

3:46PM - Dar Live Tracks

I downloaded that copy of The Easy Way and it got me wondering if anyone else has any non-album or interesting live versions of other Dar songs that they could post?

11:00AM - Dar's show in Provincetown, MA--FINALLY!

Well, this Girlyman-Dar Williams show benefitting local radio station  WOMR 92.1 fm  was two weeks ago, but I don't have regular internet access, so I'm FINALLY able to post her playlist here:playlistCollapse )

Read more...Collapse )

The show was SOOOOOO good. Dar's voice was in great form and Girlyman was excellent. I think there were as many Girlyman fans as there were Dar fans!  Dar hadn't played the Cape in 5 years, and it's been 9 years since she played Provincetown, so it was an exciting night. Can't wait for the next show...

Ahh!! On darwilliams.net I just noticed that there are eigth Dutch dates!! Dar hasn't been here for a couple of years, and she came for a show in January in Amsterdam that was amazing. I think she liked it, too, because now she's coming back here a whopping eight times! Woohoo!!
