Dave Matthews Hitchhikes a Ride to His Own Show

They were on their way to the Dave Matthews Band show in Hershey, Pennsylvania, when Emily Kraus and her boyfriend spotted the Dave Matthews, stranded on the side of the road. Pretty good timing, considering that the singer was without his cell phone and due onstage. Kraus made friendly chatter ("We didn't know how to make conversation with him in fact, so we were talking about his tour and where he had come from"), and she and her boyfriend were rewarded with front-row seats. The lesson here is that sometimes friendly people get lucky, but you still probably shouldn't pick up hitchhikers.
