Ended up towards the back of the lawn and paid the price sonically. Also had a group of young teens in front of us that got stoned during the opener, passed out for most of Dave's set then suddenly sprang to life when Ants began. Funny stuff, and added to an overall enjoyable show. Interesting to remember my thoughts from that night (that they should stick to more intimate places so the music doesn't get lost), and now they regularly do stadium/outdoor shows. IIRC, it was actually Ben Harper who opened up, and I'm pretty sure he came out for most/all of the encore.

My first show! Packed two station wagons with friends, and sat... yes, actually SAT on the lawn, because it wasn't even close to full.

Didn't know what Watchtower was - called it the sobriety song, because so many people had delayed reactions when the lights flashed.

I got a phone call early that day from Bobby O'Day, he said,"Who do you love more than your parents ??"He was taking me to my first dave show !! I believe Bella Fleck was the opener. Killer show for my 1st.

This was my first DMB show after hearing about the band and listening to tapes from Roanoke College friends and friends around Charlottesville.

This was my first DMB show. A casual/not-quite-serious fan before attending, I was hooked afterwards. The show was memorable also because of the major traffic delays due to the Hartford Police Strike.

Can't remember if this was 1st or 2nd DMB show at Meadows, but I remember I had a great time at every DMB Meadows show and the music was always amazing!

My first Full band show. I was on the lawn -The So Much To Say opener had a big impression on me. -Too Much was fun. -Recently > Ants Marching was without a doubt the highlight of the show. Truly memorable.
