Been to many DMB shows since 1994.They did well. The venue was good, the traffic flow lame, people really nice. Could have been a touch louder. Love getting together with others who are nice.

meh- Dave's choice for set was terrible. Next night, fantastic. You do not need to play Jimi Thing at every fucking show I go to

Mediocre set list. Poor encore. 2 tour debuts was the only upside.

First time at the venue. Place itself was awesome. Logistics in and out was the worst thing I have ever seen. I was happy to see DMB finally in my home town but it was embarrassing to see that giant cluster f*ck before and after the show. As for the show, the main set was good but seemed like they never really got going with high energy . It was a very mellow setlist. The band seemed to enjoy themselves but after going to shows the last 10 years I just wasnít into it as I have been in the past. Iíll take what I can get with DMB at this point with them touring but having no violin just seemed off and limited their song choices. The encore was laughable, would have taken Stay or Billies or anything else over LB closer. Overall had a good time but itís at the point where I donít expect much at these shows anymore.

I'm loving Buddy Strong's keyboards. I'm surprised how much I've started enjoying "Lying In The Hands of God" live (especially with the "American Baby Intro" vocals). Really good show.

Very excited for this hometown show and the start didn\'t disappoint. Loved the set throughout, even was able to deal with some songs that either aren\'t favs or not all that rare to me...but that encore? C\'mon man! Considering my weekend in Burgetts and Blossom before this show, encore songs are Sister/What Would You Say/Bayou You and Me/Stay You and Me/Bayou Still a fun night, but not a great ending.

I like the venue itself. The parking and shuttle logistics are a complete joke though. Like many, missed the 1st 4-5 tunes. We were in by Die Trying. I thought the band lacked intensity for the couple early songs I heard including Granny. Granny good but not great as it can be. From 41 on the band was on FIRE. Even the ballads Space Between, Satellite and You & Me had a great level of intensity to them. Crash intensity is a given. I loved the UTTAD run of 4 tunes out of 5. Thought Can\'t Stop was amazing. The 3 person horn line was really cool too. Tip of the cap to Melissa who once she found her legs was part of a couple nice jams. My 1st show w/o BT. I was very interested to see how it sounded and felt. I\'ve gone to shows since 1995. I thought it was great. They were able to go places in a lot of songs that I had never heard before. Leaned toward a more jazzy/bluesy place where Boyd may have previously played. Buddy will continue to get more comfortable w/the band and spaces and his playing will add fresh elements to shows. A welcome update for me. I wish more fans/Ants could enjoy the moment they\'re in for what it is, instead of being critical of a setlist. Each night is different regardless of the setlist you experience or just see on paper. Some nights certainly can feel great for whatever reasons resonate w/an individual. Each show though can be an experience of complete freedom, at least for a few hours. Try to find that place. We\'ll all be better for it.

Meh, very strange w/o Boyd snuck into the pit with Crunchy, very cool !! Crowd seemed very subdued, generally can hear crowd over the band but not tonight, venue transportation ridiculously undermanned
