SWEET!!! As usual I was on point. Trip was rough, drove up with Mariko w/ Mitch and Barbs in another car b/c the next day we drov to Eliot's wedding. Great start to a great weekend. Wonderful time in the lot, bought artwork that will be hanging on my walls for life. Good set, different. Highlights were the PIG opener, loving wings. Hell of a time

Cry Freedom...

Traveled across the country and got to see them open with Pig. Couldn't have been happier. That and the fans in Hartford are lame and trashed the parking lot and the venue, grow up frat boys and pick up your litter.

My very 1st show made me fall in love forever!

The band was on, but the crowd was not. I was stuck in the lawn, surrounded by a bunch of drunk teenagers that didn't even know "Where Are You Going?" One girl sitting near us asked if this was his new song. Usually lawn is the best spot for a Dave show, but not for this one. People actually walked out during Cry Freedom!!!!! To all the fake DMB fans who were there, next time, STAY HOME!!!!

Awesome show. I scored Row Q seats from Strawberries. I got to see my favorite Rhyme and Reason at my first show. So I was very happy.

Awesome show. I'd love to have it.

User: Fooltothink55

My first show, really awesome. Pig was a good opener, but cry freedom played solo by Dave was clearly the highlight of the night.

User: fooltothinkcait
Review:
Cry Freedom? Are you kidding me? By far the rarest song I have ever seen. Great great night here in Hartford

User: FubarMichy

Good Show

User: greyboy
Review:
This was a good show. I got every song that I wanted. I wanted to get a good strong Busted Stuff heavy show. You Never Know has become one of my favorites. I think Bartender and Grey Street have become my favorite songs to hear in concert. If I get those I'm usually happy! haha! Cry Freedom floored me tonight. That was totally unexpected and breathtaking. It just totally hit home on some level. That was the highlight for me. Great show. The closer was a bit weak but it was still a great show and it was a good way to end my summer season with DMB.

Weirdest DMB show I'd seen yet. Setlist was all over the place, with a lot of mellow, so it was tough to get really into (from the lawn anyway). Crowd was pretty cool, though. Song highlights were WTWE; Bartender; STJL; Jimi; R&R; Crush; and Grey Street. Not a great venue for sound quality.

User: lewis

Real mellow show. It was great though. Grey Street was great before encore.

This show was great. I was stoked for it after seeing the band in Spring in Montreal. Also this was my first time being drunk at a DMB concert. I snuck in a big bottle of wine past security, (I don't know how,) and then hopped the railing with a girl into the pavillion. It was great but, she wanted to go back up unto the lawn, so we did. I don't remember too much of the setlist, but I remember dancing the whole time like a fool with a couple of glow sticks in the asphalt area between the lawn and pavillion. It was great.

User: oasisfan35

Pig as an opener. 'nuff said. I was beyond eltated to hear it. The show was pretty chock full of new stuff (3 trax short of the entire BS album). But all in all a very energetic show from the boys who seemed to be having a great time.

User: ObsKenobes14

First DMB show I attended....

User: Raven63
Review:
Excellent Show!!!! A little more mellow and laid back then others I have been to, but the new CD rocks so that made for a good show. Also mixed in some Crush, always a good live one, and Ryhme and Reason, something I've been waiting to hear in concert

User: Rdedeian
Review:
Good show, Pig Opener, Grey Street set closer, Cry friggin Freedom in the encore, good show overall.

User: Roi&hisbentsax
Review:
Mellow show, but very good. It really got goin after Bartender. Cry Freedom was the highlight of the night, by far. Jimi Thing was awesome as always. I'd say the MVP for the show was Boyd. Between Jimi and Crush he added some much needed energy to one of the more mellow shows I've seen. I'd rate this as the 3rd best out of my 6 shows...

User: ryan_88
