Good variety of songs. Highlights of the show include: Best of What's Around, Typical Situation, Drive In Drive Out (w/ tease), and JTR (began to rain prior to song).

I am not really sure why this show has so many stars. I'm comparison with all the other shows this tour it really blew! Darien sucks.. To me it seemed they played the show to just get it over with. I got seats through the warehouse that were listed as not obstructed but in fact were! Not pleased and will probably never return to darien again.

Main set was great. Tons of older/rarer tunes. Encore as originally written would have been awful...saved by the rain/JTR switch. Overall was a very good show, but a bit short.

Not sure why anyone would rate this show less than awesome. We were 12th row, and they kicked it from the onset. BOWA to BEF, unusually fun start. Eh-Hee, Louisiana Bayou, crazy dancing Dave all night. DDTW seen it many times, but they blew the roof off here. Crap weather made it special. Great show boys...see you in Hershey!

It was my first DMB show, so I was in awe of everything. I am giving it a 5 because I had a blast and the set list was awesome in my opinion. It did downpour for about four songs, but it was still an awesome time.

Scored VIP Seats and Parking, which was clutch. Sat in Box 25, just behind Sec 201. Awesome show, caught some new songs live, Rooftop, Write A Song, Kill The Preacher, among a few others. Loved Rooftop. Was hoping to get one of the covers being played this year (Running Down a Dream or Reaper) but no luck. They sounded great, didn't jam as much, leaving the show a bit short. JTR to start the encore was nice, as it was pouring by that time.

The weather put a damper on the night. So much rain. Solid set w/ a mediocre encore.

Best Darien show of the 5 or so I have been to. The sound is just so much better under the tent compared to the lawn. Crowd was great. BOWA opener set the tone and hearing some gems like BEF and Typical made this a special show. Mid-set Billies?! Yes please. Drive in drive out?! Are you kidding me? The encore was incredible as the rain was pouring down and seeing that they added JTR because of that makes it even more special. 4.5/5 for me, but i\'m rounding up.

First time in the pit, around great people, and an excellent variety of songs makes this an easy 4.5/5 show. BOWA into Big Eyed Fish was a solid opener. Typical Situation, Tripping Billies, Drive In Drive Out, and the JTR switch to match the weather were highlights. Also cool to see the nice girl next to me get an autographed cymbal from Carter. 1st pit experience far exceeded my high expectations.

Typical with jam was great, a lot of high energy songs mid set like Shake and Billies. A couple of songs I could have done without, but quite a good mix of new and old.

My first DMB show!! Rained hard before show and during encore.

Phenomenal set. Great mix of old and new. Perfect timing of JTR to open the encore as the sky was opening up with "Rain on me". Awesome "Typical" with jam. The "Ants" close, while common, still NEVER disappoints. Not the rarest, but all I can say is we had a crap load of fun. One of my all time best Dave shows.

Great show even with the rain, of course being inside helped. Big Eyed Fish, Typical Situation and the switch to JTR for the first song of the encore during the rain were the highlights for me.
