Not as good as Saturday night, the band just seemed to lack the excitement of the night before. Great setlist, loved to hear Raven, but overall just lacking something. Disappointed with the encore as well, while both songs were great, expected more to close out the Gorge.

Great Show, Recently and Two Step were the two songs that stick out in my mind. I was a little dissapointed that Danny came out and played the same two songs again. This was the second best show for me of the three this weekend.

a stellar setlist when you look at it, just lacked a lot of energy. i guess everyone was tired from the weekend (band and crowd). billies was awesome, as well as raven and recently. barnes and coffin tore it up. time bomb has found it's place as a closer.

5 songs that were played the previous 2 nights, bad encore, Danny Barnes songs...

Best show of the weekend in my opinion.

Typical Situation and Recently were two songs I really wanted to hear at the Gorge, and I got em. God damn, these two songs were in fine form this night. The Typical jam with Rashawn and Jeff just going crazy, and Recently with Danny Barnes pickin' his ass off. These two songs sounded amazing. When I heard Dave strum the first couple chords in Recently I lost it. I was dancing up and down the aisles like a mad man. I had the plaid jacket and tie dye shirt.

You take these two rarities, and throw in some classics like Billies (mid set I might add), OSW opener, Crush, Two Step, and Grey Street, and you've got one hell of good show.

The new songs sounded great too. I was happy the band played Seven all three nights. Dave's voice sounded great all weekend, and this song was awesome every night.

AND RAVEN. When I saw Dave bring out the 12 string, I thought okay here comes Grey Street, then the band started up Raven. It was great getting this song.

Can't wait to get back to the Gorge next year. See ya.

Best setlist and overall performance of the three nights. A lot of classics. So Damn Lucky, Typical Situation, Tripping, Raven, Crush, Two Step, and Time Bomb kicked butt. Carter was amazing on Two Step. Tim was on fire all night. I like Time Bomb as a closer and it
rocked hard. Surprised that we never got Watchtower at any of these shows.

Heavy Load 09'!!!! Shared this show with 5 great friends. I may be in the minority, but I really enjoyed seeing Danny Barnes on stage all 3 nights. Thank you for another great Labor Day weekend at the Gorge DMB!

An amazing end to a great concert series. N3 and N2 were both amazing energetic shows. Grey Street and Timb Bomb were great songs to end the weekend. GO TO THE GORGRE.

Carter gave me a a point and thumbs up, Time Bomb killed... Hearing the DB songs for a third night in a row got the crowd singing the chorus lyrics with him.

Amazing show! First time at The Gorge and to be front row center makes this the best DMB show I've ever been too...not that the ones in Cali weren't great also!

Ugh. The thunderous crash. The epic fail. Not even the tour debut of Recently could overcome the feel of a Danny Barnes infomerical mid-way through the set. DMB, playing for some of their most loyal, die hard fans, repeated the same cover songs three straight nights. Even the most hardcore DMB fan can understand repeats from Big Whiskey... but off of a Danny Barnes album we can't even buy yet? It stunk of conspiracy.

The show had its highlights. Time Bomb makes for a great closer... possibly the best new song the band has put in that spot in 8 years or so. Two Step (featuring Carter's outstanding solo) was full of energy and well-played, allowing each band member to shine.

But that wicked taste of smelly campers and six slots on a weekend being dedicated to a banjo player left me wishing "I'd left my tickets on the side of the road" and called it a trip after night 2.

Amazing energy. Dave's voice sounded great, you could hardly tell he was sick. Best Two Step ever.. Carter really rocked out! Repeating the same 2 Danny songs 3 nights in a row was really lame, but a small price to pay for the rest of the amazing show by DMB. Gorge never dissapoints!

First Raven and great set all around, timebomb made for a great closer but I definitely could have done without a third night of caveman and road, would have rather heard some of Barnes' other songs or preferrably him just jamming on banjo to dave tracks.
