Sweet Up and Down, great seats.. there was an infant baby behind me with giant headphones on, and it was his 3rd show! There was a picture with Dave Matthews holding him.. it was crazy! Great sound in the pavillion, got the tckets at the last second. one hell of a show.

We sat next to the best group at this show. Dancing, singing and just having an awesome time playing air violins along with Boyd. This is by the far the most fun that I have ever had while at a show. the Indy crowd was energetic, fun, loud and totally into the evening. The band caught the energy and just went with it. Loved the venue and am hoping that the rumour that I head that it is closing is not true. Travelled from Pittsburgh for this show and would definitely make a return trip.

This is the most energy from the band I've seen in awhile, and the crowd fed off it beautifully. The new songs (27, Cornbread) are really coming together. Just a great show top to bottom and looking forward to N2.

It's Dave, so it's always an amazing show. The Maker was awesome. There was several new songs that Dave seemed to be testing in the Indy waters, but overall it was a great show.

It was a typical set for this year's shows so far. But that said, each of the songs were tight and the energy was fantastic! Corn Bread and SUAD were the highlights for me just because they are personal favorites. Fun time, and Deer Creek is not set to sell after all, so hopefully the guys will be back in the future!

Well i dont know what to say really..this was my 15th show and i would probally ranking around 10th..set list was definately average and typical of this tour...BUT with that said the band was really on and the energy was great..and the crowd energy was great as well..Tomorrow night should be awesome..The encore for this show was dreadfull though

Pretty typical warm-up night. After last years two shows, anything was going to seem like a let-down. Those of you that say the crowd sucked, please blame the Umphrey's Mcgee crowd. Drunk high-school kids makes for a bad crowd and experience. The same type of crowd was at Alpine in 2006 for Umphrey's Mcgee and it was horrific.

I gave this show a 3 for one reason. Dreamgirl in the encore. I stood there in silence shocked. Out of all the songs they have did they really have to play dreamgirl? Anyways overall an ok show. This was my 13 show, I would put it at the 10th best show that I have seen. Hopefully tomm night blows this night out of the water..... Highlights of the night SUAD, ASTB--> Too Much. See you all tomm night!

Good show. Started with Seek Up which was great. I never felt the crowd got hyped with the exception of a few moments. Probably only 1/2 -2/3 of the pavilion seats were occupied when they walked out. Dave's voice wasn't all that strong tonight either. Hard to grade them below a 4 though. Scale of 1-10, tonights show was a 7-7 1/2.
Also, I know that it is hard to contain your excitement at a show, (hell, I dance around like an idiot) but please put down your whistles. Its a piercing noise that really drowns everything else out. And, screaming lyrics over the top of Dave's voice is................We pay for him to sing them. Cheers.

Tonight wasn't a bad night but yet not a great night. I thought the setlist was "fan friendly" and they could've took a chance to debut a song tonight. But they didn't. I know the crowd around me had a good time when they heard a song they knew. It was too bad they didn't shut up during Shotgun and #27 but instead talked gossip and texted their friends. But, I wasn't expecting the best show since it was only night one.

Great show, and deer creek is my favorite venue. I was wearing a maroon Phish shirt and was with two buddies if anyone happen to see me. Glad that Deer Creek aka Verizon Wireless Music Center is not going to be sold or torn down (at least not for a while). Planning on seeing both shows there next summer and hoping to stay at sleepy bear. If anyone has a copy a physical copy of this show it would be greatly appreciated if I could get one too.

I pretty much wanted to kill the people I rode up to Indiana with. Piss poor planning, little respect for music, they were more interested in getting to Indianapolis and clubbing..

The little bit of the show that I did catch was spectacular. Made me want to see more dmb shows yet this year.

The show was nice. There wasn't quite as good a flow as previous shows, but we LOVED the new songs. Cornbread and #27 were a lot of fun, and we immediately loved both. The encore was pretty cool, too, of course when you get three songs. The traffic getting to Verizon sucks, and we barely got there in time for the Seek Up opener. But as always, once we got there and DMB was on stage, everything was chill...

OK...this was my 4th show at DC and it was my 4th favorite. I will never give a DMB show less than a 3 b/c they are still the best. BUT...in my opinion the guys phoned it in tonight. This was a very typical show...no surprises...not a ton of extra energy. Some good jams and a few electric moments, but for the most part there was nothing extraordinary about N1. I got the feeling that the crowd felt the same way. My favorite moment was a very powerful/haunting THE MAKER, plus the fact that it was my wife's first show!! Thankfully, I'm going to N2...hoping for something special.

Show 42 was a good solid show. Nothing too too exceptional. It felt like night one of SPAC in 2004. Highlights for me include the Seek opener (the best way to start a show), Dave going crazy durring Cornbread, my first Still Water, the guy dancing in the isle between sections D and E durring that hot Bayou (nice dude!), no Louie Louie on the bomb Warehouse (but the crowd thought there was), and finally a pretty standard but still hot Trippin. Love the Trippin. Tomm should blow the doors off. Lookin forward to it. See you then.

People are complaing about all these sets and i say that any set by dave is awesome once you have seen them as much as i have you are going to hear the same songs you cannot pick the set list...cornbread was awesome...and sweet up and down. I love this venue almost as much as alpine cant wait til then...N2 was better but it generally is...when they play 2 nights...

I was definitely impressed with Deer Creek, as this was the first time I have seen DMB there. Night one was fairly typical. Pretty heavy show, but I have heard most of the songs before. #27 was obviously a new one for me, and it was awesome hearing Cornbread along with Sweet Up and Down! Stay and Billies were great closers to the show and encore, respectively. However, Gravedigger may have been the highlight for me, as well as ASTB>>>Too Much. ASTB with Dave doing stills looking into the crowd is hilarious! Great show, DMB never disappoints!

Some great tunes - old and new, but it never really got going. It felt like every time they busted out a great song, they'd slow it down again with the next. I think I picked a bad section to sit in since I seemed to be the only one who knew any of the new (#27, Cornbread, Shotgun), rarely played (Sweet Up and Down), or cover (The Maker) tunes. I thought the songs played were awesome, the order could have been better and the atmosphere seemed a bit subdued. For that reason it gets a 4/5 - PS it was still worth the 11 hour drive from Canada to see!

It ranks somewhere between a 3 and 4 for me. Wish I would have been able to go Saturday as well. Like most I was most disappointed in the encore. I'm not a huge Stay fan either so the end of the regular set wasn't my fav. either. Everything before that was great. Love the new stuff! I give it a 4 over a 3 strictly because he played Warehouse.

A GREAT SHOW!

Seek Up - always a beautiful, enchanting opener and a nice surprise.

#27 - I had heard some of the tapings of this but had never seen it live. It was the best version to date.

Hunger For The Great Light - I personally love this song live. It is so intense and fun to see. And they don't fuck around with it either. They jam it out and end it. I love it live!

When The World Ends - nothing special but certainly not bad.

You Might Die Trying - another Stand Up song that is just incredible live. It was fun to see.

Grey Street - loved it.

Corn Bread - first time seeing it live and it was so funky, original, and fun! I have a love affair with this song.

Sweet Up and Down - a highlight of the night. I knew they had brought it back but it didn't change the fact that it brought a tear to my eye hearing it live after all these years. And it was special because the last time I saw it was at Deercreek in 2000! Absolutely amazing!

Sister - beer/restroom run... gotta go at some point.


Donít Drink the Water - intense as always. Love the chanting in between the lines like the Central Park version.

The Maker - I LOVE THIS SONG! And I haven't heard it in years.

Louisiana Bayou - yet another Stand Up song that rocks live!

Anyone Seen The Bridge - if it hasn't already been said they did the coolest stop time intro that was like the end of So Much to Say and it was another highlight of the night.

Too Much - love the energy and intensity of this song.

Shotgun - Words don't describe how happy I am that this is back and this version did not disappoint!

Warehouse - incredible

Stay - incredible

Gravedigger - absolutely beautiful and haunting.

Dream Girl - I sat down during this song but the refined version brought me to my feet. They've really worked on this song and you can hear it.

Tripping Billies - What a great way to end the night!


The 8 song run from Don't Drink the Water until the encore was one of the greatest runs I have seen in years!
