Great show. Good setlist. Boyd's performance was stellar! "Recently" acoustic was awesome and the band had good energy through the whole show. The Houston crowd was pathetic. Only show I've been to where the crowd was sitting down the whole time.

OMG EPIC! I don't know if Dallas or Houston was better...what a great week for Texas. Seriously first Halloween I've gotten not at the Gorge...also I never thought I would say this but the fact we got a song three shows in a row was amazing (Warehouse). Not only that but Warehouse > Nancies was freaking awesome!

Set 1: First set really kicked off with acoustic Recently, Birthday Boy Boyd & the guys nailed it (31st Anniversary of the EP release for Recently - May 17, 1994, a precursor for things to come?? STJL->DN->WH->AM->Halloween , I\\\'ll take it!) Rhyme & Reason -> Song That Jane Likes was great, digging the throw backs with Timmy jams & Flute jams from Coffin. Set 2: Band came out strong with Warehouse -> Dancing Nancies. Rashawn big sound on the horn, hitting crazy high notes with the Caribbean beats of Carter on the Warehouse jam. Nancies is when Boyd broke out with a nice long jam that climaxed to synchronized riffs from Coffin & Rashawn. Then we got a \\\"good\\\" slow down tune with Proudest Monkey, very clean electric jam from Timmy. Crush was solid, Stefan had a great intro solo, similar to his AATWT one, Boyd & Timmy with killer solos as well, song had to be over 15 minutes long. Drunken Soldier outro was nice as always, real smooth with Timmy breaking out the finger slider. The remaining show was bland until PNP->Rapunzel closer with Rashawn & Coffin going out with BIG sound. Encore: Sister was a nice touch, calm before the storm. Timmy with his entrancing/echoing sound fx always a treat. Once I heard Carter\\\'s snare beats into Ants led me to believe it was going to be a long jam and last song of the night. Intro Ants jam with Dave scat vocals, Boyd once again gave us one hell of a show, he was on point. At the end of the jam Dave\\\'s does the usual \\\"Lights up you up and die yeahhhhhh....\\\" And then BOOM carter slams it right into Halloween. People going ape shit, including myself. Dave bellowing all he had, screaming into the bridge, chilled me to the bone. Timmy shredding a sick outro, Van Halen style. What a way to end a show, I was jacked. My first Halloween, won\\\'t ever forget this show, very special.

Awesome show - not my favorite venue. It's hotter than Dallas and no breeze. They sounded great, though!

I enjoy every show I go to, but this wasn't one of my favorites, mainly due to the crowd. There wasn't much energy, at least from where I was. I also can't stand it when people sit down at DMB shows, and there were a ton of people sitting around me. Good set list though. For some reason I feel like the Houston crowd is generally pretty mainstream. The band killed it, nonetheless.

Fantastic evening at a GREAT venue. Weather was perfect and the band was having a PHENOMENAL time. BT was killing it for his birthday. One of my favorite encores ever - but I am biased to Halloween. My wife and I had a wonderful evening celebrating our anniversary (a month early!).

If Dallas was a solid good show (which it was), then Houston was a great to excellent show. A 4.5 that I am rounding up to 5. Crowd was better and the band was really up, maybe because they were closing out three nights in Texas, maybe because it was Boyd's birthday. The salute to the first 7 years or so continued: more than half the songs played in Dallas and Houston. Acoustic set was outstanding. Even Beachball was acceptable! A full Recently plus Rhyme & Reason. Second set started strong picking up where the first ended. Warehouse was first played. Even though it was just played at the end of the Dallas show the night before, it sounded fresh and you could tell the band was on. Drunken Soldier!!! Usually on a night like tonight a big Two Step ties it all together. Tonight a surprising Ants Marching transitioned into a strong Halloween to close out the night. Well done and Boyd was front and center throughout much of the night.

Great encore but otherwise a pretty average show. Of course, and average DMB show is still a great show, but the setlist didn't light my fire. Boyd was fantastic and the whole band played with energy and enthusiasm, which was great.

Great show and we were lucky to be given tickets for this show from new friends in Austin. Then they got us Pit tickets. The Pit here is small but you feel the love there. Great show!

Some great renditions of a few songs, but too many of the overplayed stuff. Somewhat mellow overall.

Boyd stayed on a roll, the bands energy was much higher than it was in Austin, which lead to some great performances and a really good show overall. Nice set list with respectable duplication from 5/13.

9th Texas show...easily the best crowd and band energy I've ever seen. Ants Marching into Halloween was epic. Happy Birthday Boyd and thanks for carrying the night.

Thought this was going to be another one of those shows that started out strong and had all the makings of a epic performance, but then fizzled out in the end. Thankfully Ants and Halloween saved it for me. All I have to say is the first three shows have annihilated the first three shows from the 2014 tour.

My first show here and it was fantastic! The sound from the Meyer cabinets terrific, but the mix left a little to be desired. Lighting was also very good with a great stage setup. Set list was awesome, it was my first time hearing many of the songs live. It was a classic Boyd night and he tore it up. They nailed drunken sailor and crush, and Ants is my favorite song in the world. Can't wait to go again.
