The first night was good, but boy was the second night great! Getting only a couple of AFTW songs, gave room to bringing out a lot of the classics. Highlights really started coming into the end of the show such as Warehouse, an epic Jimi Thing with Carlos Malta who was mind blowing (I had a little jimi thing of my own that made it so sweet! See what I did there?), an awesome blues jam into a totally unexpected Halloween, not to forget a great Proudest Monkey, Satellite, and LIOG. I can't really say anything was wrong with this show. I had a GA ticket for this one and was like 15 feet from the stage so that was awesome. Almost got Carter's stick (once again!) but some dude barrel rolled in front of me to get it lol. Still an excellent weekend, I really wish I could just it over and over again!

We had GA tix, and we moved all the way to the back to avoid the vomiting hump-monkeys who grind on you when you try to get close. We had lots of room to dance; however, speaking of humping we did see two people really going at it behind us; we think there was actual penetration. The set list was solid, especially the ending run from Wharehouse through the encore. The opening could have been stronger, but the improvs were great.

Great show... maybe even a touch better than night 1! Great setlist, including an excellent opening set closing run of jam-Halloween-Billies. Great show. Love Drunken Soldier more by the minute.

Would go 3.5 stars. 20th show for me. Agree with the comment that the band is playing as good as they ever have. Would have liked to hear some older stuff on N2 but ill take them skipping mercy, gaucho, and sweet anytime. Great LIOG and Warehouse. Set list towards the end with Halloween billies and pretty decent encore with drunken soldier. Glad I have heard everything from AFTW at least once. See everyone next summer!

Phenomenal start to the winter tour. Perfect balance of new to old songs. I was happy that he didn't overwhelm the set with Away From The World songs.

Amazing weekend! Great way to cap it off with halloween and billies to end the set. Encore with PNP Rapunzel was also a hot one. This night was a little better for me simply cause of Halloween!

Jimi Thing went on forever. It was awesome! Wharehouse, Halloween, Tripping Billies, and then Drunken Soldier at encore was beautiful. Went to both shows. Thanks for such a fun weekend, guys. Didn't get anything new on N2 at my 21st show, first show I've been to where I did not hear anything new, but had a blast dancing my ass off all the way in the GA back and loved the entire weekend.

Despite the appearance of Can't Stop this show was solid. LIOG was great and even though I have grown tired of Jimi Thing this version may have been the best Iv ever seen, the flute kicked ass! The run of Warehouse Halloween and Billies was amazing! Solid encore and great performances all night! The sound was crisp and the band was tight, see you at Barclays!

30 mins of Jimi Thing! This was a GREAT show... Antsmarching is raving about the entire album being played the night before... for me, I don't want to hear that... I have heard "mercy" 7 times this summer, I so glad I didn't hear that on this night... I am glad I heard some of the older stuff and some new/cool jazz intro into "Halloween" - one of the best indoor shows ever!

jimi thing was incredible, and I loved the blues improv. I didn't really like that smlam and belly belly nice were both played...they're way too similar. I'm also getting sick of hearing you and me, but otherwise, it was a very solid show.

This was a show that was sort of OK for me until Jimmi Thing. The Jimmi Thing was positivly inspired and everything that followed was a notch up from earlier in the show. Snow Outside, The Riff and Drunken Solider are the three best new songs and all 3 were played in this second half. Can't Stop, Warehouse, Blues Improv, Halloween Billies to end the set and then a really great powerful encore. Excellent show. This one may not seem as great after all of the new songs have been played to death but I got to see the songs I most wanted to see from the new album.

Poor openers, not the best mix of songs. Love Snow Outside and Drunken Soldier..musically the band is as good as ever, and AFTW sounds great live; just a bit disappointed, and after 40 shows, I can't say that very often

I had a great time at this show hanging back by the sound board, putting away my phone and camera and just trying to LISTEN and enjoy the night. It made for a great show. The band was spot on and the Jimi jam was out of this world. Warehouse KILLED it and I was completely loving The Riff both musically and with the creepy video that runs behind it. In retrospect, I'd still love to hear my first Pig instead of my 11th You and Me and other songs I keep hearing over and over, but I did enjoy myself and thought the band sounded great for a good show.

Overall, very solid set. I wasn't at night 1 so the repeats didn't bother me but I could see if they did some people. the improv going to halloween really made my night. always love getting a halloween, only my 2nd. now on to Toronto and Brooklyn.

This show was much better than the night before; yes I concede that the first show played the entire album, for which I was grateful because I now appreciate it a lot more having heard it live, but I LoVE the classic songs and jams every time! All in all it was a great 2 days.

The Opener was terrible!! started the show off really slow. Some of the new songs were pretty good but was looking forward to a better night from them seeing how it was the second night. Halloween and lie in our graves was really nice to see. Best song of the night was Jimi Thing and it was the best version that they have ever played!!!

Terrible, terrible crowd. The show was good as usual, but the crowd was unbelievably quiet and boring. Really killed my mood as my Fiance and I were the only ones standing in our section and we were getting stared at like we were crazy for standing. Couple that with the fact that a bunch of people were upset that they played so much off the new album (ITS AN ALBUM RELEASE TOUR!!!), it was probably the worst show I've been to.

Atmosphere - 1
Performance- 4

I will tell you that i had a sigh of relief when Dave stated he will try not to do as many songs as the night before..

A lot of people didn't like EH Hee as opener ..i loved it...I thought the show top the bottom was a great mix of classic old school (Lie in Our Graves, Warehouse, Billies, Jimi Thing..etc) to New school (shake me like a money, Belly Belly, Drunkin Solider, you and me etc..)

I seem to go to shows that are classics..they made my previous apperance into a live trax (scranton '10) this set list has a nice mix which i could see the same type of release.
