I was super pumped to go to this show with my buddy because we got pretty decent tickets. I was okay up until about halfway in. I basically chugged a six pack in an hour, and after I smoked my jimi thing, I was done and sitting down pretty trashed for a good part of the second half. While I remember the songs being played, I could not enjoy them unfortunately. Never doing that again lol.

Incredible start to the show. Could have done without "Out of My Hands". Nice encore. Would be great if I could hear TSTJL once and have Dave get the lyrics/timing right...

my third show on the mountain top. Band always seems to do something special here. When the World Ends was an unexpected twist, refreshing cuz it was totally off my radar. I danced like crazy during Help Myself, that was such a treat. Was secretly hoping Dave would do a Mercy>Out of My Hands since Mercy ends with him on piano. Very emotional. Loved that they switched up So Much to Say>Ants instead of ASTB. Only to "reprise" ASTB>Too Much during the encore. I love when they mess with the expected flow of things; makes every show a surprise. Also STJL was great to finally hear, rounded out a nice encore. Nothing like Hartford N2's encore but Stefan brought it on Bridge yet again. Love him. Love the Mountaintop!

Great show...better than Houston and Dallas this year in my opinion. Agree it started fast...then slow...then with G St it picked up only to fall off again so the pace was not ideal...but overall was a fantastic show. I thought the main set would be over after ants...and was quite surprised by Can't Stop...really like that song and with Stanley it was one of the highlights of the night. Glad we made the trip from NYC while on vacation there...back to TX tomorrow!

This was my 30th show and I have to say I was really happy with the setlist. I love old DMB and I happy that they gave us that! STJL was a huge surprise! I wasn't too happy with the venue. Idk if ill ever go back. The projectors were terrible for those in the lawn and I wished they started after sunset. I love seek up but felt it was ruined by people not being settled and the fact that it was still light outside. Hope to see them at Jones Beach next week!

stellar show...was on the lawn for both hartford shows, too - this one beat both of them. venue is also roughly 7468% nicer than in hartford, as is the crowd. place was rocking for all 20 songs...fantastic from the DDTW tease all the way through to the last verse of Too Much.

Very solid show. Seek Up and Help Myself were the obvious highlights for me. Big Eyed Fish was also a pleasant one. You and Me was the only "letdown" of the night. Worst part of the night: The SCUMBAGS selling nitrous-oxide in balloons after the show. Seriously people, you had time to drink all day, and taking whip-it’s while driving away is smart how? Stupid, stupid, stupid….and a lot of adults were partaking in the activity after the show (not just the lame teenagers we rag on all the time for puking in the lawns). It would be great if people could act their age…

Awesome awesome show. Solid from start to finish. Seek up was nice but not long, and the set had a lot of energy through out especially with a midst Ants and Song That Jane Likes encore...

Great way to start DMB in 2012 for me...a few surprises help myself and Jane in the encore threw me for a spin. All in all solid show and it was my first time at that venue and I really enjoyed it, def may make the trip there again next year

Great energy by the band, and crowd was very into it. My hometown venue, always a good show, just wish we could get a 2 night stand here. Looking forward to Bethel next month!

Enjoyed the whole set and was my first show at Montage Mountain. Wish I had a pit ticket but my seat wasn't terrible except the large pole that blocked Rashawn and Jeff from my view.

A lot of energy with every song. they played a lot of songs that used the whole band (sometimes you see Boyd or Jeff and Rashawn just standing arounnd- nnot this night). Help Myself was great mid set. Excellent Encore.

One of the best DMB shows I have had the privlidge to be at. I missed him in 2010 and people said that this show may have been a close 2nd or even a tie!

This was the first time I had ever seen a show in Scranton and I must say that the venue is excellent. The band put on a show to match. I really enjoyed Seek Up, The Song That Jane Likes and the mid set Ants Marching. This band sure knows how to play Ants!!! This was actually the 4th time I have heard Help Myself in the now 34 DMB shows that I have been to. I am a Help Myself magnet! I didn't end up staying in my seat for the entire show because I wanted to scope out the entire venue. I was very surprised at how good of the view was from the lawn and actually spent almost half of the show here because the vibe was good as well. The people that I met were all very friendly. If my schedule allows it I will definitely make the trip back to Montage Mountain for another DMB show.

Solid show. Seek up, Raven, Help Myself, and Song that Jane likes were the BEST! You and me, and Out of my hands were not on the original setlist, sucks they were added, and replaced Sweet, but oh well. Overall solid show! My 70th show, and on the rail in the pit. Cant ask for a better view!

seemed like a VERY moody show (awesome, then fizzled, then awesome again, etc)... every show is a good show though
not the biggest fan of cant stop, but this stanley Jordan character made me love it. crush was by far the best version Ive ever heard, that plus seek up tonight made me think: welcome back mr tinsley. not sure what he did during the year off but I havent heard him play like that since before the BTCS sessions... I think it has something to do with dropping the electric and going back to a classical...

Great show once again at Montage Mountain, DMB seems to really like playing there, all 3 shows I have seen there have been high energy. The crowd was full of energy too, even during duds like Out of My Hands. Rapunzel was a highlight for me, they rocked out at the end to close the set.

Another great show for the Montage Mountain crowd. The set had a gret mix of old and new and the crowd really sounded loud. The band is on fire with their performances right now and really seem to be enjoying themselves on stage.
the only thing keeping this show from 5 stars in my book is Can't Stop. That song needs to disappear for good, as it does nothing but clear out the venue for a piss/beer/food break!
