Listomania: 10 Signs You're a Closet Dave Matthews Band Fan
|Is this poster in your room right now? You're all in, dude.|
Rockstar Energy Drinks' UPROAR Fest featuring Disturbed and Avenged Sevenfold is tonight, the JoBros and Demi Lovato take over the place on Sunday, and, on Saturday, Dave Matthews Band on Saturday will have things running amok.

|You have this tattoo? Might as well own up to it.|
3. You call the band DMB.
You don't need to show us your closet; we know you've got a stack of ripped bootleg MP3s from Napster (on that T3 connection).
|You have, like, three copies of this album...don't you.|
