First time in WPB - not impressed by the actual venue (though parking was VERY easy in and out) or the beer selection but great pretzels. With that out of the way- the show was great. Branford was great. And Raab, one of the nicest people I've ever met hooked my wife up with the set list (again).

Went with D Ritter, J Bridwell. Rained during tailgate as usual and during part of show. Unreal set list

This was an amazing show. One of the best shows I've ever seen (aside from the gorge.) The acoustic set was superb. A great performance of Grace is Gone followed by a 13 minute acoustic Stone. This is one of the best versions of Stone I've ever seen. Then... Captain... One of my favorite songs of all time (hence my username). I was totally not expecting them to play this (first time played in an acoustic set) and they nailed it. Such a great rendition of this song. Then an awesome solo by Stefan to open the electric set with Crush followed by an unexpected Drive in Drive out and the crowd (including myself) was pumped. After Jane the set kinda slowed down a bit, but after an amazing performance of Typical Situation, the energy was back. They finished the show out with a series of classic fan favorites and threw in a great rarity with Cry Freedom. A high energy performance of All Along the Watchtower wrapped up what was a really awesome show.

Really a 4-1/2 star gig. Half-hour late to start, and they blew right through the curfew to make up for the entire time missed at the beginning because of the weather. Way to step it up, DMB. Pretty damn excellent N1, certainly WAY better than last year's. Branford Marsalis was an amazing guest: he killed it on Typical with Jeff, on Jimi (best one I've seen since Lasim Richards sat in way back when), and on Cry Freedom (a long-awaited personal debut for me). Dave was in a dancing mood all night and, in one of the best bits of Davespeak I've ever seen, mercilessly ridiculed a drunk asshole in the front of Section 3 for a couple of minutes at the top of the acoustic set. Dug Black and Blue Bird, but Death on the High Seas sucked the life out of the place. Great performances of Grace, Old Dirt Hill (which had a surprisingly good jam at the end that I'd never have pegged for that tune) and, especially, The Stone in the acoustic set. Definitely looking forward to N2. This got the weekend off to a really great start, but besides the excitement and potential for another great gig, I'm bringing a friend to his first ever DMB show. I can't wait to introduce him to what he's been missing.

Only 2nd time in the pit. Besides the drunk guy standing right next to me yelling at the top of his longs every 15 seconds (even after face called him out), it was an amazing experience. Loved the set and Branford Marsalis !!

Great show! Grey St acoustic. Drive in Drive Out, Cry Freedom! Lot of rain for the acoustic set (a LOT), but it dried up for the second set. Single song encore Watchtower as an AWESOME way to end the night! Also dissecting the time signature of Black and Blue Bird was fun!

First time to WPB and it was awesome! Got 6 songs that I never heard before! Grace Is Gone, The Stone, and Cry Freedom were definitely the highlights for me tonight. Looking forward to a solid night 2!

Just plain solid Friday night at West Palm. Good long acoustic set - Grace is Gone, Stone. Main set had Jane, DIDO and Cry Freedom was a fantastic treat. Love that they blew past curfew to give us a badass Watchtower closer!!

Might\\\'ve been a good show, but the cold rain ruined my attitude. DID get to see a drunk dude do some amazing dancing with his umbrella, though...
