Setlist doesn't have to be epic in order for those things I highlighted to take place. And never once did i say it was. You can have your opinion on song choices, that's fine. You may be a pissy pants, but that doesn't mean everything else was. Band was in a damn good mood both nights. I couldn't believe how much they brought to Deer Creek this year. Crowd was loving it, they were even psyched during Spoon which i expected to be met with silence. Yeah, it rained in the afternoon, but the atmosphere was anything but average.

    OP, I'm curious as to what you would need the band to play to make this weekend above "average?" And how does Idea of You suck?

    I think it's absurd to think Joy Ride is a good song
    It is absurd to think you are a DMB fan.

The worst part of the two nights other than SMLAM, Hunger, & Squirm was the N2 poster..
    You act like pretty much every other jaded asshole I've ever seen online. Big man behind that screen eh?

    Its just a thing to do like playing the setlist game I don't take it that serious, again if you would read my original post I gave N2 a +1 but did say that I had a great time at the show... Were you at the show? Did it blow your mind? Was it epic? To me it wasn't, it was however a very good weekend, glad I went. I'm sorry I don't come off as energetic as you would like or whatever your deal is with my post.
    I like Cornbread, I in fact have a Cornbread dance, andI look dam good doing it, much better than you sitting there being complaining.

    Re: Deer Creek N1 & 2

    N1 was my 11th show and the best seats I've had yet, two rows behind the pit right in front of Dave. Brandi did a great job in her opening set and when she asked everyone to "stand up in the name of...." I was crossing my fingers she was bringing out Dave for some Angel from Montgomery action but instead we got a solid cover of Folsom Prison Blues. She did a great job keeping the crowd going and her story about Dave buying her EP at the Gorge when she opened for them was really cool to hear. Right before DMB came out the weather was looking a little sketchy but it ended up holding off the entire night.

    Big Eyed Fish - Really like this song in the opener spot, I always welcome this at a show

    Granny - Did not see this coming! The segue between the songs was a nice treat

    Idea of You - Really like the way they're playing this song right now, they could have played it both nights and I wouldn't have minded

    Belly Belly Nice - Fun song off AFTW, always gets the crowd going

    Joyride - The band was loving this song! Towards the end, during the Woo's, Dave was throwing his up with the crowd and dancing along

    #41 - Nice version, Tim solo sounded great and the horns sounded really good too

    Rooftop - I love what this song has evolved into, my favorite song from AFTW to hear live, Dave dancing in the slow jam was great!

    Captain - The band sounded great and I loved Dave's story before they played it, such a good tune

    The Riff - I've now heard all of AFTW live, some of the people in my area lost interest during this one but I thought it sounded a lot better than when it was played at the winter shows

    So Much to Say > ASTB > - midset how can you not love this? Stefan tore up the stage and the horns sounded good as well

    Too Much - Crowd loved it, I thought it was going to be a fake into a midset Ants Marching but I was wrong

    Recently - Really glad this in the mix again, a little bummed we didn't get the Pretty Pretty Girl/Take Me to the River outros

    Crash into Me - slow tune but a crowd favorite to follow the triplets and Recently

    PNP > Rapunzel - They killed this performance, I've heard this at 4 straight shows now and don't get tired of it

    Squirm > - I really wanted this to be Shotgun, it was a decent version, my favorite part was the segue into Lie In our Graves

    Lie In our Graves - Such a nice treat, bummed they didn't do the reprise, was hoping it would be in the encore or in the next night's show

    Grey Street - My favorite song, loved every second of it

    --------------------------------

    Sister - Not a bad e1, there are other songs I'd rather hear sure but I'd rather hear it here then somewhere in the middle of the set, really the only song that I was like meh about

    Best of What's Around - That's what I'm talking about! Did not see this coming at all, so good in the encore

    Ants Marching - Okay, Carter played a very convincing tease/intro that sounded very similar to Halloween and right when the intro was building and Halloween would normally start I started jumping up and down and then realized it was the Ants single hits, even though it wasn't Halloween, this is one of my favorite songs to get at a show because I love how the crowd and band play off each other, it's our anthem haha

    Overall, N1 was a really great show start to finish, the band is in a really good place right now, and tonight they were all on fire. Sure, Sister wasn't the best e1 song but for me it made Best of What's Around and Ants Marching that much better.

    Re: Deer Creek N1 & 2

    N2, show number 12, going into tonight I had no idea what to expect, I knew we hadn't heard either twitter campaign song (Spoon or Monkey Man) so I was hoping for those to both show up. The rain in the afternoon had me nervous about later that night but by the time we got to the lawn the ground was almost dry, found a great spot dead center for our group and there were people with blankets all around us so we had a good amount of room. Brandi played another great set, would have been nice if she changed up more than just one song but she and the band kept the energy going again, no Dave guest. The sun started to come out right before it was time for DMB to take the stage

    You Might Die Trying - I thought we were going to get a Seek Up opener but I was mistaken, YMDT is one of the songs that I don't hope for going into a show but always sing along and enjoy when it does get played, got the crowd energy going for sure

    Broken Things - In my top 3 on AFTW, sounded great, much better than the winter tour

    Drive In Drive Out - Wow! Was hoping for this but expected it towards the end of the set, great performance and surprised probably everyone in attendance

    If Only - Not my favorite AFTW song but they did a good job with it, I like the placement of it as well because what do you follow Drive In Drive out with??

    Gravedigger - Carter's intro sounded similar to Say Goodbye, would have gone nuts if that happened, I like Gravedigger, similar to YMDT I don't hope for it but enjoy it when I hear it, the lawn loved this song

    Don't Drink the Water - Cool improv intro while Dave was getting his in ear's fixed, great song to hear following Gravedigger

    Spoon - The twitter campaign worked! Brandi's voice sounded incredible and the band was loving it, the outro was amazing! One of the best DMB performances I've heard in the 12 shows I've been to

    Jimi Thing - I loved Dave's introduction to this "After going to therapy about this I've decided to stop apologizing for playing this song!" haha Dave earned every second of that Jimi Thing after playing Spoon with Brandi

    What Would You Say - I love this song, great choice to follow Jimi Thing

    Mercy - I enjoy this song, pretty good placement to follow Jimi and WWYS, bring the crowd down a little bit, everyone in the lawn was singing along

    Hunger for the Great Light - It's not my favorite, first time I've seen it live, it was cool to see once, but I don't really care either way to see it again, enjoyed singing along though

    The Space Between - This was a great surprise and I thought it was going to be just Dave but then the rest of the band came in, really awesome performance, one of my favorites of the night, the horns sounded great on this

    So Damn Lucky - not my favorite song, would probably like it more it was like 10 min instead of 15, to add another song but Dave seemed like he was loving it and the crowd sang the Thank You's at the end

    Write a Song - Fun little song, I feel like it's got some more groove to it then I remember

    Pig - Did not expect this! and loved when Dave said "Hope we get it right for you this time!" it's awesome that they remember the SpacePig haha but the crowd loved it and it was one of the highlights for sure

    Everyday - Good performance, definite crowd pleaser, Boyd had a couple notes that were a little rough to say the least haha but it was fun

    So Right - When I saw the guitar come out I was like holy crap this could be Monkey Man, no such luck, but I enjoyed it

    Shake Me like a Monkey - Not my favorite song, but I danced like crazy and screamed the lyrics just like everyone else at the show

    -----------------------------

    Drunken Soldier - Very cool to see e1, sounded 1000000000000x better than it did at the winter tour, I love the album version but the performance of it in Duluth, GA I heard kind of made me 'meh' about it live but this performance showed me how good of a song this is and how much I love it

    Two Step - Time Bomb intro, really would like to see the improv intro come back but I do prefer a Time Bomb intro to a full version, it was a great Two Step and a great ending to the weekend!

    It's difficult for me to say which night I like more because they were so different, DIDO, Spoon, WWYS, Pig, So Right, and Drunken Two Step were the performances that really stood out to me. This capped off another great weekend at Deer Creek. Thanks to everyone that helped with the twitter campaigns for Spoon and Monkey Man, we didn't get Monkey Man but we gave it our best shot. I will honestly be surprised if it ever shows up, but we'll see. See you all next summer
