They seemed tired.

Had an intereseting side view of the stage. Show had a lot of energy. This would be my 8th DMB show in 2010 and my last until the band tours again. Only fitting they would play my alltime favorite song as the encore closer, Grey Street. After the show I was looking at a girl to my left catch a stick from Carter and proceeded to get drilled in the head by another drumstick from Cater. Some girl 4 people down got it. Had a bruise on temple but it was worth it.

Amazing show. I was about 8 feet from the stage. Carter gave a stick to a little girl I had been standing with in line. Her name was Trinity. She kept calling the band "The Guys" and she was absolutely precious. I was so happy she got a stick. It was her first concert ever, and she will never forget that.

The show was great! The band was the tightest I have ever heard them. The only thing that pissed me off were the fans. As I had been standing on the floor since the doors had opened I had a decent spot on the right of the stage (in front of the horn section/Stefan). All night people kept trying to push their way to the front. Note: IF YOU WANT TO GET CLOSE TO THE STAGE, GET THERE EARLY AND BE PREPARED TO NOT MOVE UNTIL THE SHOW IS OVER!!!

Rail. Sticks for the boys. Carter tapped Michael on the head as he was looking for a dropped stick, and greeted him with a smile and another stick.

Great show, terrible crowd. Setlist left a bit to be desired, especially with the lack of Halloween or Last Stop that was played at every other show on this tour. That was very disappointing. We all saw the 12 string come out for the last song and we "knew" it would be Last Stop, but then they played Grey Street. Oh well, Grey Street is a good song. Other highlights included a fantastic Squirm opener, Eh Hee, Cornbread (Trombone Shorty rocked it), Crush, and the unexpected BOWA. Two Step was a great set closer, and What You Are was also very cool. The real downer of the show was the TERRIBLE crowd. They were drunk and dancing around like it was a moshpit, and during the Dave Solo songs (which kinda killed the energy of the show), they were all talkin and yammerin' on. Ugh! Oh well, Great show otherwise!

Kind of a mellow show, but got some good things in there towards the end. Highlights were cornbread w/ Trombone shorty, an amazing versions of Proudest Monkey and BOWA.

Being such a small venue, it seemed like everyone had good seats. I was in sec 122 row B and was closer than any show I've ever been to, except for GA at Joe Riley in 2008. It was a great atmosphere, almost like seeing the band in their early days on such a small stage.

"Squirm" makes for such a great opener. It was raw and full of energy and really got the house pumped.

"Funny the Way It Is" was at it's best, IMO. They really cranked it up a notch and were spot on throughout.

And what better way to surprise the fans than with "I'll Back You Up"? It was so beautiful to finally get to see it.

"Lie in our Graves" was off the chain. The interpolation of "Wonderul Tonight" was such a perfect touch and Boyd's solo was killer. They could have jammed on it another 5 minutes and that would've been just fine.

"Cornbread"- That's enough. Time to shelve it.

"Digging a Ditch" was a great surprise as well. Totally made up for the fact that I had just heard my fifth consecutive Cornbread. I absolutely adore that song.

"Lying in the Hands of God" is a great song, but it could have been a lot shorter. I love jamming as much as the next guy, but this was a bit much.

"Best of What's Around" was, as always, absolutely perfect. The first time I heard it was at Joe Riley in 2008, so it made the return to Charleston extra special for me.

I LOVE the new jazzy intro to "What You Are." Finally hearing it the other night with the new intro was so amazing and Dave's voice shined at the end.

Closing the set with "Two Step" was so perfect. The jamming at the end following Carter's solo blew me away. That song does it for me every time.

"Dive In" is an amazing song to me. I love full band, but solo gives it a much different feel. It sounds more personal with just Dave and his guitar and it was so beautiful that night.

So, we're at the end of the night, and everyone is anticipating the same thing. The epic song that had been played at every stop of the Fall Tour. We see the 12-string come out and starting screaming. And then, wait.. here it comes...

...Grey Street? I was a little... okay, a LOT let down. But, over all, it was a good night. I'll get my Last Stop eventually. 21 song set. can't beat it.
