This was an awesome show. Great setlist and the band was full of energy. It was also one of the more intimate DMB shows I have seen.

Fairly weak setlist. Mix was a little off. Bass was really strong, had trouble hearing Jeff/Boyd at times. Still a great time though. Pit seats (not really seats) were awesome :) Grace is Gone was boss, as was drunken soldier. And Halloween!

Awesome, my highlights: Drunken Soldier, Ant/Halloween, Space Between and So Damn Lucky and a cool twist to Roof Top. Loved it!

I am biased on this show because it was my first time attending in the Pit. Through the first three songs, I was a little apprehensive because the set list was pretty standard. The energy jumped up with "Belly Belly Nice," which is certainly a favorite off Away From The World. We were treated to a smooth interpretation of "Grace is Gone" featuring Mickey Raphael on Harmonica...which freakin' rocked! This was followed by a rad "So Damn Lucky"...Dave tried to wrap the song twice, but with the crowd singing "Thank you, falettinme be mice elf agin," we coaxed Dave into sing with us before wrapping it up. Next up was a cool rendition of "Rooftop," with a break down I hadn't heard before. "Dancing Nancies" is the rarest song seen in this set after "Grace is Gone", making its 3rd appearance on the tour. Awesome, oldie but a goodie. Nice to see "Don't Fear the Reaper", and was a little disappointed we didn't see Coffin rip it up on "#41." But the set ended with an awesome "Cornbread" "southern-cooking" drum solo into, with Dave doing some intense scat and crazy foot work, then moving into the "Ants Marching" snare intro. Dave was certainly tired after "Ants", so I was completely surprised by an incredible "Halloween" which as gotten more love in recent years. The crowd down front went crazy! Out of all the possible encores, all I wanted was "Drunken Soldier". Getting this song completely made up for lacking a Dave solo...but did I mention he was visibly tired after the main set? After all, the air is thin up here! The only thing better than wrapping with "Watchtower" would have been a "Two Step," but c'mon...you can't complain with this set. And the performances were incredible.
