Once again, Sunday is the best show of the weekend. Highlights include Preservation Hall\\\'s monster jam session on That Girl is You and Hamilton\\\'s jam on LIOG. Some great surprises but i dont think anyone expected another song after Watchtower. Got a little extra dance in there.

Would\'ve been a 5 if they didn\'t have to cut out Two Step from the Encore! Can\'t wait for 2019 to do it all again, never skip a Sunday.

Unbelievable. Phenomenal set list and energy all night, I have been a fan of this music longer in my life than I havenít and I have never seen or heard anything like TGIY on sunday. An absolute epic jam. #27, butterfly, so right, captain and amazing guests....just amazing. Never miss a Sunday show.

That Girl Is You w/Preservation Hall was incredible, as was Hamilton, again. Though I was hoping for 2-Step, and CB is not my favorite, it worked as a closer. Finally got my Proudest Monkey. This is the only song where I did not love Buddy Strong\'s contribution, because his chords during the riff took away from the riff. But I\'m sure he\'ll get the hang of it, as he said in an interview that he was not very familiar with ANY of these songs before he was hired. He\'s a great addition to the band. Great show! Great weekend!

After PHJB finished, it felt like the show should just be over. Dave felt the same way, mock-walking off the stage and waving to the crowd as if to say "where do we go from here?" Ironically, the band did seem a little lost after that, with a very fragmented setlist. Looks great on paper, but didn't quite work in a live setting. And, the band did seem a little bit tired after 2 full days + keeping up with PHJB. By itself this was a great show, but was for me the least enjoyable of the three nights. But as always, an amazing Gorge experience!

I felt like this show did not have much flow or energy where I was on the lawn. I still had fun, Captain was the highlight of the night for me.

Show flow was off for me - but maybe I was just tired of standing.

The show was outstanding and buddy is a great addition, making a lot of the music I have heard over and over sound fresh. I have been waiting 15 years to go to this venue and it didn't disappoint. Girl is you was insane with PHB and #27 was a nice treat. I have now seen watch tower 34/38 shows. Please retire that song.

Phenomenal finish to the Labor Dave Weekend. I\'d been waiting to see Cornbread all weekend, and they closed with it.

Was lucky enough to be on the elevated side stage again! What an amazing perspective to see Dave from this angle!

Got a ticket via fb messenger from Wayne Teeger. About 10 rows back from the pit on the right 1/3rd. Had to drive back to camp. Set up my tent, walk all the way to the treeline on the opposite side of the premium lot, get the ticket, then trek all the way back to the campsite. Finished setting up my tent and met up with the guys who had the Original CBD oil rv. Walked with them to the show and did not catch up with them again. Afterwards, I had come back a little early so i didnt have to walk with the herd. Some guy puked his guts out by the trash cans. across the dirt road from my tent. Got up pretty early so i could get back to seattle and explore.

Girl is You w/ Pres Hall was great. Wanted more BTCS. Watchtower encore unreal.

#27 is a favorite. Buddy is a monster on Superstition, LIOG is always a pleaser and if you are going to repeat a song on a multi-night stand, the AMAZING That Girl Is You with Preservation Hall is absolutely worth it. Wow. Then out of nowhere, we get Butterfly!! I would\'ve loved to see Hamilton guest on Two Step, but you\'ll never hear me complain about a closer that includes Watchtower. What a great weekend.

Another amazing show to cap off a fantastic Labor Dave Weekend. I was surprised by two repeats, as I always had the impression that there were no repeats at the Gorge. But That Girl is You was almost like a completely different song and absolutely rocked with guesting by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. I'm not sure why Dave decided to repeat Again and Again except he prefaced the song by saying "It's OK to tell the same story twice...if it's for a good reason!"
