    Freaking awesome. They played a good combo of new and old. The new stuff they played were the songs I liked from Big Whiskey. The improv they can do is 2nd to none.

    Re: DMB Concert Reviews

    Sorry, I was posting from my blackberry. The concert had so many good things about it that it was hard to take it all in. I was in GA and it was a spectacle. The lighting, video screens, neon tube thingys, and a packed principal park. The crowd got a little rowdy towards the end but all is well. The setlist was perfect, right when you started getting comfortable, BAM! something new and very upbeat. The bands jam sessions were awesome and their cover of "bringing down the house" was great too. Kinda wished they played "too much" but overall great show. A+ to DMB, great show.

    I think the word you were looking for was "Drunk"

    the fourth time I have seen him...not the best, but still great. I have seen him 4 times and I will see him 40 more if he continues to come around here.

    First time i've seen him. We stood about 15 yards away from Dave. Easily best concert ever. Got some great cell phone pics and videos.

    Re: DMB Concert Reviews

    All I wanted was Burning Down the House...AND I GOT IT! Maybe I've been spoiled by Alpine Valley but this concert was pretty vanilla. No huge surprises to be honest. Looking at the setlist, every song has been played within the last 3 shows with the exception of one or two. Dont get me wrong, they sounded amazing and they put on a great show. Originality was lacking. The improv was lacking on a lot of the songs IMO. Like I said, I've probably been spoiled by Alpine Valley.

    DMB is one of those bands that when they're gone and moved on people are going to listen and wish they'd seen him more live......I don't think a lot of people get that musicly, thats as good as they come.

    Re: DMB Concert Reviews

    I don't remember how many times I've seen Dave, I think three now, but he always puts on a good show. My mind wasn't blown last night (I was in the bleachers and was kind of far away) but it was just a good time. Tickets to his shows are a little spendy but I never feel like I don't get my money's worth.

    Re: DMB Concert Reviews

    Really wish I'd gone. I've seen them 3 times, including that epic show in Ames where Neil Young just found his way out on to the stage for a jam through "Cortez the Killer", "Rockin' in the Free World", and "All Along the Watchtower". I was waiting to hear Big Whiskey before I got tickets (i really didn't like Stand Up) and at that point it was too late. The DMB is unquestionably one of the greatest bands of this generation.

    Oh well, I'm going to Wilco thursday night. I've never seen them and it should be great.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
