But to your point, I don't plan on ever reaching to see another DMB show in California as long as I'm on the East Coast. It was convenient this year - and something I wanted to do - but it absolutely is a different experience and do a certain degree, a lesser experience.
The contrast is startling. I went to Philadelphia in Winter 2012 and Hartford in 2014 after not going to an East Coast show since, like, 2002, and the crowd felt like it was from a different planet (in a great way).

Just FYI, though, whenever the band plays Vegas you do get East Coast level emotion.

    I understand people may seem lazy but that's not quite it. Chris Rock, in some interview (I THINK in his episode of "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" BUT I could be wrong) said "the difference between Vegas and Los Angeles is people in Las Vegas know when they busted out." I think that is more to the point.

    But I do think when it comes to most concerts/sporting events (big venue, small venue, it doesn't matter) people just get less excited than a lot of areas of the country.
    this! That's how I feel

We did have WH members around us that were into it, but even most of them seemed more stoked for Crash, Crush, Jimi then anything else. I tend to think that if the encore was Sister>Granny>Ants or Sister>Granny>Billies, it would have garnered a more enthusiastic reaction.
    Wife and I were on the rail right in front of Tim and Boyd. We had a good group of WH folk around us. Samurai Cop got a great reaction. Hard to judge the Break Free reaction since I was probably the one with the biggest reaction. Saw the baritone guitar come out and was hoping to hear it. The Two Step - Halloween encore sent people around us into a frenzy. Pretty solid show in my opinion.
