An interesting show for me. Dave must really believe that Chula Vista loves BW songs, considering they played another 4 songs off that album tonight. However, the set list was high energy with no crowd killer songs and it ultimately restored some of my faith in the band. Great energy, great friends, great experience overall, but I can't ignore the fact that was a terrible encore. Left at the first note of Bayou.

Good show overall. 41, say goodbye, nancies and granny were highlights. They scratched crush, don't fear the reaper and belly full and put in jimi thing?! Big let down! The encore was awful!

Extremely high energy throughout. Too bad the encore was one of the worst.

#41 > Say Goodbye was the highlight.

Have never seen them having as much fun as they did last night. Gary Clark jr was awful on watchtower, out of his element maybe, but midset watchtower... So good. 41, Say bye, nancies, warehouse, and Jimi thing were incredible!! Was dreading jimi but I had me grooving the whole time!! Boyd was up front a lot all night and sounded great!!!!

Gary Clark sitting in with the band on All Along the Watchtower was like a religious experience. Great show!

Ending with Shake Me Like a Monkey threw me off a bit...I missed my jump and am stuck in the parking lot. Ugh.
Also, my first show without seeing any songs I haven't seen before.
Great performance as always...

My 16th time seeing Dave, and clearly one of my most favorite shows. Great mix of songs. Insanely inspired playing throughout the night... hard to pick a high point! Memorable moment (not sure which song)...Stefan was really grooving, Dave tried for quite a while to make eye contact with him, eventually he moved right up next to him, and practically got in his face, as Carter and the other guys were cracking up. They were clearly having a great time last night! I do have to say, however, that I thought Gary Clark stunk up Watchtower.I felt sorry for him... he was totally out of his element, maybe if it's not 1-4-5 then it's just not his thing. He may be a decent blues musician, but he seemed like a deer in the headlights throughout the song. His solo was uninspired, cliched, and meandering. You could see the other guys pulling for him to get it together, but it never really happened. After his solo, he seemed so disoriented that he didn't even play along with the song... just kinda stood there looking lost. The rest of the band was super tight, and KILLED it, so it was ultimately a fine rendition. Unlike some other folks here, I really enjoyed the encore... it was a tasty dessert after a delicious multi-course gourmet meal.The unexpected Shake Me Like A Monkey finale left me with ringing ears and a huge smile on my face.

Band had great energy all night and Dave's voice sounded strong, Boyd was in the spotlight many times and was on fire, highlights were Say Goodbye, 41, Warehouse, Watchtower with Gary Clark Jr, Granny, Grey St, Jimmy Thing, being my 40 th show was ready to be in my top 5 shows until the encore, horrible song choices, one of the worst ever, always seem to get Sister in the encore and Louisiana Bayou, hope I never hear it again, Shake My Stupid Monkey not a show closer

This show lasted forever. I have never seen the band enjoy playing so much. They just didn't want to stop, and I was enjoying every minute of it. Great set list, great new friends, and, most excitingly, I got a huge bear hug from Boyd, which made my night. I love this band, and I love Chula.
