You can tap into that summer-lovin' feeling right now because we just got word that the Dave Matthews Band will perform Aug. 25 at Raley Field (400 Ballpark Drive, West Sacramento).

On this tour, DMB will reportedly be debuting new songs that'll appear on a new CD scheduled for release later this year.

Sharon Jones and Dap-Kings will open the show - and here's the thing: I just popped their CD "100 Days, 100 Nights" into my car CD player this morning (for reals!) and it's a good one. Jones is an old-school soul singer and the Dap-Kings have gotten buzz recently for working with British neo-soul chanteuse Amy Winehouse.

Tickets ($70 floor, $58.50 stadium seats) don't go on sale to the general public until March 29, but if you're a member of the DMB fan club, then head over to the band's fan club site and get in on a pre-sale that runs today through March 17.
