Great one night performance. They knew what they were doing with this crowd on this weeknight. Full moon, which they brought onto the screens

As a local of Bend, I've become such a fan of this venue (last night was my 5th show there this season). Putting the evils of Live Nation/Ticketmaster aside, the staff there are always amazing and the venue itself (sound, view, facilities, general aura) is one of the best I've experienced. We got in line about 3hrs early and grabbed a spot next to the soundboard. There was plenty of room around us, which kind of surprised us a bit. We also happen to be behind the only two people at the concert that decided to sit down the entire time so our view was stellar. Also, this show was very sentimental to me because my dad and I went which was our first DMB show together since he took me in HS in 1997 (Cincy). Now, about the show. It was definitely a more chilled out choice of songs for the most part, but a great setlist to boot. I always heard Drunken Soldier was a fantastic live song and I definitely agree after witnessing it. Warehouse and Watchtower stick out to me as INCREDIBLE! This was my first time seeing Buddy with the band, as well and what an addition! The thing my dad and I said looking back at seeing where they've come is that they have aged so nicely, as has their fans (in the 90's it was A LOT of obnoxious drunk frat boys and now it's a lot of us old people). What a gift the band is and such an amazing show they put on for our small little town!

Fantastic venue - first time visiting. The band was on fire (and the wildfire smoke cleared when they started!)
