My 6th and final show of the tour, 30th show overall. Fake rain delay really broke up the energy. The overall set really did not impress with an uneven flow and a lot of repeats from the past few shows. After giving SPAC and Jones N2 4\'s, I can\'t give this show more than a 3. Props to the band for coming out after 3 straight rain delayed scheduled shows and still playing through the curfew, as well as playing 4 straight nights and Dave for playing 7 of the last 9 nights. Highlights were Crush, Jimi (and all its segues), Two Step, & Halloween. Everyday & Ants are always welcome regulars. Heard Joyride & Last Stop at every show played, but still fun to hear.

Another great show with my best friend! Flew in to DCA on Friday late-afternoon and met my friend and his family for dinner in downtown DC, then went to the National Mall to see the Apollo 50th anniversary movie projected onto huge screens and the Washington Monument (very cool). The next morning we had some breakfast, stopped by Georgetown Cupcake (always a must), and went back to the Mall to the National Air and Space Museum (1st time there!). After that, my friend and I split off from his wife and daughter and we went to the show. Volunteered with REVERB again and sold lots of water bottles in the oppressive heat...but the volunteer coordinators took care of us with ice, water, pedialyte, and fresh fruit. Got to the lawn just as they were starting SMTS. We were up near the top of the lawn, but during the set break for the lightning we were able to move down really close because of the amount of people seeking shelter. Awesome to hear a few songs after so long: Last Stop (3 years ago), Joyride (6 years), and Write a Song (6 years). Great night...Stefan even wore a moon shirt!

One of the best sets I've seen in a while. Last stop and Halloween in the same show is amazing. Other highlights were Write a Song and Joyride. 4.5 but I'll give it a bump up

Great show! Another weather delay and the heat was intense but at least it wasn't pouring like last year!

Triplets to open is always a great high energy opener. Solid Crush tonight before the weather delay which was much shorter than last night in Charlotte so they got their full set in. Nice to get Last Stop even without the outro/reprise and another Joyride to get the crowd goin. Super solid end to the set from Everyday through Two Stepoween. Much better experience than Bristow 18. Excited to watch the YT stream!

This show was one of the best shows I've seen out my 24 shows! He pulled out a lot of goodies for Bristow including Last Stop, Joyride (finally got to hear it for first time), Two Step->Halloween, and then just an all around great setlist including lots of energy. Buddy makes Everyday tolerable now considering that's almost the only song I hear off Everyday. And despite the rain delay, the band managed to squeeze in 25 songs. It's a complete 180 from last years Bristow.

15th show at this venue and this was by far the best. Only downer was Can't Stop, but it was quick.

Overall excellent show with some good surprises! Crush with the impending storm was awesome, as was Ants, Jimi, Halloween, Two Step, etc. The Come Tomorrow tracks are not translating live well, and are energy killers, and that's my only complaint about this show. Also, it was hot. Very hot.

Probably the best show I've ever seen, if not the best it's definitely up there. First last stop after 26 shows. Despite a lightning delay they still played every song on their set. Jimi Thing through Halloween w/o an encore break was a lot of fun.

They certainly played all the big hits! My first Pit Pass. The extreme heat and lightning delay could even kill our mood.

The run of Last Stop, Stay or Leave, Jane, and Joy Ride made me very happy, and of course you always want Halloween to close the show. However, people are not talking enough about how fucked up it is by Dave to not play the outro/reprise in Last Stop. You have arguably the best live song from DMB that Dave purposely goes years without playing, and you decide to remove the best part of the song (whole song is phenomenal obviously). Instead of a 12 minute Last Stop you give the fans a 4 minute version? Dave just likes messing with the fans and enjoys depriving them of what they really want to see. The summer of 2019 version of Last Stop is not even close to the full caliber this song has to offer.

I thought we were going to be screwed over by the weather again, but after a short break, we got a full show. This one was fun. I know all the songs and appreciate the rare stuff but I like the radio hits the most. Favorites tonight were So Much to say, rooftop, stay or leave, Jimi thing and Ants. Ended up being a good time.

In reality I'd probably put the show at a 3.5. Tons of songs I was pumped to hear (Triplets to open, Write A Song, Joy Ride, Last Stop, Two Step, Halloween) and a fair amount of moments I was less happy to hear (no outro/reprise of Last Stop, Jimi Thing, the 90 covers that come after Jimi, Come Tomorrow, Can't Stop). Generally an up-and-down show but I had a good time.
