I would be so incredibly stoked for what's happening right now.

    An incredible set so far. I can’t help but wonder what happens from here though. Would they tour like this for 1/2 weeks?

    Im aware every organ has pedals. Never saw Buddy use the bass pedals before, and his tech literally walked out with them right before the show and connected them.

    Re: What the hell is an "Alternate Format?"

    Yea, like I said I've lost interest in the setlist at this point, but this is unlike anything we've ever seen and if I were there I'd be excited to be witnessing it.

    Just curious. Where did you lose interest? The Dave solo LP tunes?

    A lot of emotions pre show but hot damn. Always hated I never saw Dave and friends and always wanted a dave solo nancies encore so I’ll take a D&T version! Can’t wait for what tomorrow has store. I’ll say this of course give me carter and fonz but now I can honestly say I have no clue what could be in store the rest of the weekend and also holy shit. Tony’s tone is unmatched.

    Re: What the hell is an "Alternate Format?"

    I was at the show. This was one show where the setlist was mostly irrelevant. The only thing about the set that mattered is there was no big whiskey no stand up and the one come tomorrow song is actually a good song unlike 85% of the album. Dave solo stuff was special. Tim being at a full band show not under the 2 sets branding but having an acoustic guitar was a nice surprised as I have said for years shows would be better if time lost the electric guitar for certain songs and went acoustic past an "acoustic set".

    It was nice to see two step and graves early on in the show flow and billies mid set. For once it was ok to get Sledgehammer even though I get sick of that cover by the 2nd time I catch it each tour.

    Youre right.
    But do you define this a standard playlist?
    It is a roller coaster

    No, definitely not, but when your drummer and bass player get covid and can't play, I think standard kinda goes out the window.

    What happened last night was unreal. It was like playing a final with a defender as a goalkeeper.
    I imagine that very few bands on the planet would/could have done that.

    Yea, I think 99% of bands just straight cancel. And I think even DMB at any other venue just straight cancels.

    The Gorge is such an important part of DMB's brand and legacy

    "Labor Dave Weekend" and all that

    Was in pit last night. The crowd sang for most of the show. The energy was awesome.

    Edit: it was packed too!

    I absolutely agree. This is the only venue they won't straight cancel. Last night was strange and really cool. It would be nice if SiriusXM streams the rest of the weekend.

    I think it's more that thousands of people are stuck out there in the camp grounds in the middle of nowhere with nowhere to go and nothing to do. If you're in NYC for MSG and they cancel, you're still in NYC.

    I didn't think about it like that, but that's a really excellent point

    You're like three hours from Seattle out there

    I would rather be stuck in this beautiful place than in NYC. At least for a day or two
