From the DMB FAQ:
"Trax is a Charlottesville, Virginia nightclub located near the University of
Virginia along West Main Street. It was founded in the early 1980s, and has
changed hands (and, consequently, names) several times since. The building
was constructed in the early 1930s and has served many purposes over the
years including a National Guard Armory, an auto shop, a boxing ring, and a
warehouse. When it changed hands in the early mid-1990s, it was briefly known
as "Crossroads." Bands of all sizes of popularity have performed at Trax
over the years, notably including 10,000 Maniacs, The Band, The Black Crowes,
Blues Traveler, George Clinton, Cracker, David Gray, G. Love and Special
Sauce, Ben Harper, Arlo Guthrie, The Neville Brothers, Phish, Public Enemy,
Red Hot Chili Peppers, Leon Redbone, Squirrel Nut Zippers and Warren Zevon.
Dave Matthews Band played there every Tuesday in the early 1990s, and it was
there that they established their popularity in Charlottesville and among UVa
students. The last show that Dave Matthews Band (at least, several members
of Dave Matthews Band) performed at Trax was their April 29th, 1996 release
concert for Crash, their second major-label release.
The venue was demolished in 2002 in order to make room for the expanding UVA hospital complex.
