They finally switched up the N1
rotation! Couldn't have been happier on the first night. Better not to overload on any particular night. Highlights for me were Seek Ip, Say Goodbye, Rhyme and Reason, LIOG (saving the reprise for N3 I hope!) and finally Panta Naga Pampa Rapanzul finally. If this trend continues it's gonna be an amazing weekend. Only 8,000 rumored to be there tonight it was a really intimate show!

What a great show!!! I honestly have no complaints tonight, this show far exceeded my expectations. The band sounded awesome, they looked like they were having a blast and their energy definitely carried over to the crowd. Must say that Boyd was a beast tonight, this show was all his.

Great opener night- great mellow vibe, but not in a lame way- very relaxed and intimate set, also unusual setlist for N1!

Good show. The Everyday opener brought back memories of my first show at Randall's in 2005 where Everyday opener there as well. Seek Up was great as usual. Crash Into Me, #27, and Seven were standard, and Granny was a crowd favorite as always. Saw my first Say Goodbye through 12 shows and it didn't disappoint. Funny has a new intro where Tim was playing his part differently and Dave was scatting which was pretty cool. Dive In brought the energy down a bit, but came back up with Grey Street. I wasn't a fan of the Blackjack Spaceman run, but they made a nice recovery with Rhyme and LIOG (another first for me in 12 shows). Then, they played PNP > Rapunzel, and I thought for sure it would close. Nope, it was Shake Me. The crowd was disappointed, but a decent set nonetheless. Sweet was a nice quiet song about Dave teaching his daughter how to swim, then Gravedigger kept the energy down. But Billies was a very strong closer, especially with the Nature intro. All in all, pretty good show. 4 stars.

Very solid setlist with little complaints. Every show has complaints but you can never really have a perfect show. Loved Say Goodbye and Lie in our Graves on n1. Very cool! The tripping billies to end the night was absolutley electric! Never a fan of Shake me like a Monkey and Gravedigger to be in such big spots. But a very good night for DMB!

I came expecting some magic after the buzzkill of Governor's Island, and from the start of Everyday I knew the band was going to exceed my high expectations. The low attendance made the night intimate and special. And definitely one of the coolest, chill crowds I have been a part of. LOVED it!

Seekup, Grey Street, Say Goodbye all good. FTWII was unusually good with a nice intro. Tripping Billies at the end was great

Disappointed to hear so many of the same songs from Governor's Island. We were all there, Dave should have broken out some crazy stuff for us. Overall good show though, 20 minute Seek Up was great and Sweet on the uke was a surprise.

Awesome first night, nice setlist change from earlier N1. Smaller crowd than other Caravans meant we could show up just an hour before DMB and end up 20 rows from the stage! Highlights were Rhyme and Reason and Seek Up. Boyd had some of the best playing I have heard at all the Caravans!!

Great show!! Met up with some friends in the parking lot but was not allowed to tailgate. They wanted everyone to go inside. The weather was on the cooler side but it was still a great show. SOJA was a nice surprise and a good band.
