Great show at the Gorge N2. This full band Bartender was so emotional and powerful. Carlos Malta guested and put on a great performance. Other highlights to me were the rare Cry Freedom followed by a funky Tripping Billies (straight off the Crash album). Also Raven is always a treat, and the closer of Pantala > Rapunzel was a great way to end a strong set. The encore was really good. It started with Sister > Two Step (typical at this point of the bands career), but then Two Step gave way into a full on Beauford drum solo which segued right into Halloween! A very good encore to end a great night at the Gorge.

Another great night! Was a little disappointed in Squirm as the opener until about half way through it and thought it was the best version I\\\\\\\'ve ever heard. Like a heavyweight punch to start the night. The next few songs were just standard classics, can\\\\\\\'t complain about anything. Then once they played Crush the entire Lawn just exploded. People dancing, singing at the top of their lungs, and the band was on fire in the jam. It just escalated from there to a Two Step > Halloween encore. I was not expecting that! Plus Two Step still got a killer Carter drum solo. Some of the other segue versions into Halloween leave that part out. He was unbelievable all night though. Carlos Malto really added to my first Cry Freedom, and again to Jimi Thing. It made the song so unique and fun. I really thought the band sounded better than ever. They didn\'t do long extended solos, but just one tight machine playing better than any band in history, and I mean that. Stefan and Carter never sounded tighter which led to some amazing stuff from everybody else. Even the standards I\'ve heard a bunch of times were the best I\'ve ever heard them play! Granny, Rapunzel, Tripping Billies and Jimi were just so damn good! I love that Rashawn and Jeff left the stage a couple times to let Carlos Malta do what he does. Such a classy move. Thanks DMB For one of the best shows I\\\\\\\'ve ever seen in 17 years as a fan! 2018 can\\\\\\\'t get here fast enough!!

OSW>Granny>Rooftop were killer 2/3/4. Mid-set Crush and Bartender were amazing. This Bartender was the 2nd best live DMB song performance I\'ve ever seen (out of 33 shows)...right behind a 2007 20+ min. Bartender (coincidentally) at the Woodlands with Danny Barnes. I still can\'t get over that Malta jam/Tim and Carter end jam during Bartender. The crowd fed off Malta and the energy was amazing. Raven was a great surprise. Jimi/Rapunzel closer was epic. And then Two Step>Halloween encore was killer as well. What a great night 2.

Nice variety in the setlist. Carlos Malta was even better than on night 1, and his guest appearances on Bartender and Cry Freedom made the night. Raven was a treat and the Two Step > Halloween encore ended the night on an epic note. Can\'t wait until N3.

A few clunkers mixed in, but Raven, Cry Freedom, Bartender, Rapunzel, Two Step, and Halloween made up for it. Squirm works really well as a slow-burn opener. Weakest of the three Gorge shows but still a great show.

Amazing show, great energy, with a lot of eclectic song choices. Would have liked to hear a couple more of the "hits" but only because we were only at the Gorge for Saturday's show.

20th show at the gorge for me and I was given a pit ticket! !! Dream come true. Amazing set, not a typical sat night by any means. Amazing crowd energy and band energy. Carter was on it like never before and Dave was a kid up there! Any less than 4 stars please turn in your Dave csrd.
