Loved it, better than last year. Just wish Boyd didn't stand on the side of the stage soo much. Two Step and Jimi were crazy.

Great energy, excellent venue, and really digging the new songs. Still missing LeRoi, but Jeff certainly brings a fresh perspective (like playing 2 saxes at once - CRAZY!)

I have been to many DMB shows, most of them here at Cynthia Woods. This was by far the best. He was definitely feeling it and brought the crowd with him. AMAZING SHOW!

Fantastic show. One of the best Ive ever seen live. Good energy, funny Davespeak, Amazing setlist. Too much tim, in my opinion, but not a big deal. Two Step, Jimi Thing, and Pig in the same show... In Houston... awesome.

Absolutely awesome show. This was my 5th show and probably the best one I've been too. First DDTW, Raven, and #41. Great Energy the whole show and easily the most talkative I've seen him. Carter's solo was SICK! Also first time to see Tim Reynolds, which was a long awaited treat. I don't remember which new song it was but one of them kinda sucked. I guess I'll wait for the album to hear them out. AMAZING SHOW!!

Decent show. Crowd was lame though. Didn't really get into the songs or the band. First listen of a few of the new songs on Big Whiskey.

most energy i've ever seen in HOU...almost every song was an extended jam...love it when they're "on" like that!

Totally awesome. He was in a crazy mood and I heard Two Step, Grey Street, #41, and Pig in one show!! And they played Raven...just unbelievable.

Extremely choice setlist, placement & catalog selections...not enough BWGGK stuff, yet the album had not yet dropped. Hopefully in 2010, we will get a summation of 2009/2010 tours (considering its one of the last few tourdates) (NOTE: the band damn near lost it on Grey Street bc of the tempo coming out of the Bridge/Too Much Intro...they BLAZED through Grey Street!) PIT ROW 4 (right in the center)

Great Two Step. Maybe the best on I have ever seen. Disappointed in the crowds reaction to the new songs, especially Beach Ball. Band had great energy last night.

a muggy night but a great show

Water got things off to a great start. Killer Jimi and killer Two Step carried the show. Funny and Why I Am sounded great. Beach Ball sucked, actually made WAYG welcomed. Rye Whiskey was a very nice touch and sounded 100% better than the Atlanta recording. Seemed like we got an abreviated #41, with not much of Tim, compared to last year and opening night in MSG, so why not just play Recently instead? If I had a nickel for every time Dave mentioned he was sweating (like a Pig?) we'd all be wealthy!

Best two step ever. Carter was great!!!

awesome show. one of the best two step drum solos i have ever heard. Jimi Thing was great with Jeff Coffin doing his dueling saxaphones.

A solid performance, as always. I'm liking the new songs more and more, especially Spaceman. I could've done without WAYG for what seemed like the millionth time, but the setlist overall was awesome. Dave made his usually comments about the heat down here in Texas, and was full of energy from start to finish.

Raven! Stay or Leave! I'm telling you guys...Dave gets more into WHY I AM than any song I have ever seen him go off on. He dedicated it, "our good friend Le'roi, this song is forever his.."

Not just good....DAMN good. Really great energy tonight and the guys had full chops after a night off. 41 was great...Pig was a pleasure...lovin' the new songs. Really, really a fantastic show tonight. Our group agreed the best we've seen at the Woodlands in several years. Hope our friends in Dallas get some of the good good vibe!

My first DMB concert and I loved it!! Jimi Thing and Two Step were my favorites. They were just jamming out! For the new songs I liked Spaceman and Funny. Very happy with this show and looking forward to the next one!

My Second DMB Show, all i can say is the set blew my mind, what an excellent show, with Jimi, Pig, and #41. Still feeling high off the energy of that show and its been 4 days.

Awesome energy...the second half of the set was intense...can't beat Two Step, Rye Whiskey, Pig and #41...great run!

ASTB>Too Much fake then>Grey St was completely made up on stage...watched Carter and Dave discussing it before going into ASTB so I'd love to see what was changed from the printed setlist.

Great show! Raven, Pig, Jimi and Two Step were amazing. Great energy from the band, dave was pretty talkative. New songs sounded nice, especially Spaceman, and Why I Am. Crowd was not that great, but better than other shows I've seen at the Woodlands.

4th show I've seen in Texas. First in Houston. Great all around. I could have done without WAYG. The jams were insane. Beachball....well the jam saved it. Why I am didn't disappoint. Spaceman will be one of my favorites once I get the words down. Funny the way it is played better than the single and the recordings I've downloaded. They only played 7 songs I've already heard live. The Pavilion gets the trophy for best in Texas. Can't wait for ACL.

Show was absolutely sick. The band was rocking all night long. Carter was just amazing and Jeff and Rashawn were also on fire. The band was full of energy, one of the best shows I've been to.

What a great show! I was so amazed at how much fun they were having on stage! Such a good vibe... Dave was so chatty and it was a pleasure feeling like we were just hanging with the band!! One of my favorite shows, if not THE favorite! I was lucky enough to be handed a set-list by one of the stage crewman too!!!!
