Sick set list

Awesome show! You could tell that DMB missed the valley last year by coming back with a big bang! Bayou had a ton of energy during the ending jam & they kept things upbeat and fun throughout. So many awesome tunes in here. My favorite part of the show was the Warehouse > Nancies when the band let the crowd take over the first verse like we've seen them do with Jimi Thing in the past. They jammed so hard tonight it felt like a N2 show. Feel spoiled that we get to see another 20 songs or so tomorrow!

This is the 2nd time at Alpine Valley for me, (08.20.00) the first time was when I was in college 12 years ago, so I am looking at this venue through a different set of eyes. This place is amazing, the ultimate outdoor concert experience. As far as the band goes, one word describes this concert, energy. From start to finish they were tight and energetic. Thought DDDTW, WWYS were exceptional. Loved the way they closed the show, then the encore was perfect. My wife and I made the trip from Indy, we love Deer Creek as it is home but Alpine is just special.

Awesome show. The set list was great with a good mix of old and new. I did not think that Russian Soldier could be replicated as well as the album. They did it so perfectly. Stanley Jordan guesting is a show stopper in a bad way. Ant>Halloween had everyone going. DMB and Alpine Valley go together. Everyone needs to see them at Alpine at least once.

Another great night at Alpine!!! From the tailgate, to the sprint down the hill to get the front behind 202 to the left of the soundboard, to the people with us and around us, to Dave the DMB superfan security guard, to the kick ass set. AWESOME NIGHT!!! My 52nd show got me Halloween and Drunken Soldier (considering I've only heard Halloween one other time in the 14 years of seeing DMB, pretty fuckin rad night!)!!! Thanks to everyone making it another phenomenal year at Alpine and cheers to many many more!!!

Great set, tons of energy from the crowd and the band. Highlights for me were Belly Belly Nice, So Right, Space Between, Nancies, YMDT, Granny and WWYS. Loved the Ants --> Halloween closer. Loved Some Devil encore opener, thought the rest of the encore was a bit weak but at that point I'm not going to complain about it after the run of great songs during the main set.

My 37th show and 14th at Alpine. How many bands give you FOUR new songs to add to your list after having attended 37 shows? And Halloween was NOT even one of them! The Warehouse-Nancies switch was cool. Never seen them in that order before. Save Me and Snow Outside were just beautiful mid-set selections. My first FOOL TO THINK! Yes, loved it. And then how can you beat Ants into Halloween? My third Halloween at Alpine - you know this place is special.

For me it never seemed like the show got rolling. It was very much up and down with every 2 or 3 songs changing the energy. TIt never seemed like they hit their groove or ever really jammed. Stanley Jordan sucked the life out of the place. I really enjoyed the solo Space Between and the Ants > Halloween, but the encore didn\'t really do much for me. Overall a fun show, but the feel of it was way different than how great the setlist looks.

I've loved seeing this band since 97. Every show is amazing. But at some point you have to start comparing them to eachouther to accurately rate the show.

In my opinion this is one of the worst shows i've seen. The first half of the show was not great. Some gems at the end brought it back a little but it was beyond saving about 8 to 10 songs in.

2 stars is being generous. Not a great show.

As always Dave does not disappoint. Bayou has its mustard with the right amount of out to. Warehouse to nancies reverse was very nice. Strong throughout the middle and one hell of a way to end the main set with a Halloween finish. Some devil is always lovely to hear. Erapinzel to close wasn't bad. It has the fire but tripping billies would've been better.

Good show overall. They played great but as far as Alpine Shows in general... just OK. My only real bitch is the fact that the Dude has songs coming out of his ass and he had to play F**KING Louisiana Bayou??? REALLY, retire that song, good Lord man. Having SJ on the set for a couple tunes was nice, dude is awesome, snow-outside is a great jam song and drunked soldier was everything I had hoped for.

FOOL TO THINK! Amazing show, band had the most energy of any show I've seen this summer. I actually enjoyed N1 more than N2, I'm surprised this show has a low "4" rating and not higher. The band was on fire tonight! Show #86 for me, and one of the best of the summer so far.

This was an interesting show.. Super high energy from the crowd and the band, but the set was really a roller coaster. Amazing warehouse, ddtw, die tryin, and Ants into Halloween was ridiculous. Stanley Jordan was under utilized- that gentleman has major talent that just was not shown off enough! All in, I give it a 5, because, well, Alpine just rules! Looking forward to N2!

Insane N1!!!! They hit the gas pedal from the start and never looked back. Brought my brother in law and his son to their first DMB concert and they were blown away. One of the best I've been to. Warehouse, Nancy's , DDTW, and the Halloween?! I'm nervous N2 will not be able to top this.

Awesome spot in the PIT, solid crowd around us, overall very fun show. Last year's weekend combined with 2013's expectations, made it hard to please everyone. Highlights were Whouse>Nancies, Sweet Emotion interpolation at the end of Fool To Think, Ants> Halloween, and a very solid encore with a tour debut of Some Devil.
