The first thing I want to say about this show is that the quality of the music from beginning to end (including moe.) was exceptional. We had a beautiful day to see two bands that I really feel are at the top of their game. moe.'s short set was outstanding, despite the fact that not even half the crowd bothered to come in. Those people who chose to ignore this awesome band missed out on a set closing Spine of a Dog -> Rebubula that completely rocked (despite the lackluster response from the crowd). Now on to Dave. I had only been to one other DMB show before and that was in '98, so I really didn't know what to expect in terms of the crowd. Now I realize why everyone makes fun of people who listen to Dave. This was quite possibly the most apathetic crowd I have ever seen at a concert. The entire time I wanted to scream at everybody "DON'T YOU REALIZE WHAT YOU ARE SEEING." Unfortunately, it seemed the crowd was more interested in socializing than paying attention to the music. Now I realize it must be nice to throw away money for a concert and not pay attention, but, personally, if I'm paying $35, I'm taking in as much as possible. Unfortunately, the white-hat frat boys came out in droves for this show. They were more worried about getting drunk and laid (most likely in that order) than appreciating the music. The saddest part about all of this is that people who criticize DMB act like the band set out to attract this type of crowd. IT ISN'T DAVE'S FAULT. Oh well, enough rambling. Like I said the music was outstanding, once you get over the mass of brainless idiots who see dave nowadays.

What an incredible show! The best yet for me despite Germain being a lame venue with poor sound and non-working video screens. I've never seen the band so energized. Jimi Thing lasted 15 mins they were so into it. The Maker was awesome to hear. After they played Crash they were on fire - there was no stopping them. The crowd was much better than Tuesdays show. The Stone and Ants for encores took the crowd over the top. This show rocked! Daves performance was powerful and moving as always!

The best DMB show I've ever been to! When dave started playing the intro to Granny I already liked this show better than yesterday's in Columbus. There were only four singles among the 17 song setlist that Dave and the guys played, which allowed for plenty of rarities and jams. Boyd was hott with solos in Nancies, Lie in Our Graves, and Jimi Thing among others. The only dissapointment to me in the show was the last song before the encore DMB played What You Are, could have done without that. But this show defenently redeemed the band from the previous night's opening performance.

This was a awsome consert for me, first outside of Indiana. Granny was great, this was a first for me (what's crazy is that I called it)SO Much to Say was also a first, it rocked. DDTW was expected towards the end but nice to hear early. I knew we could expect a diff. ancore. One Sweet World was also a first timer, it was also great. Pay for what you get was impresive, I dont think anyone expected this one. Kit Kat Jam, this was probably the best I have heard it performed, everyone rocked. Dancing Nancies, the best performace all night it was great. Cry freedom was a first for me, also great. The Maker was a complete suprise, gave the concert a new feeling, it was nice to hear. Lie in our Graves the song gets better and better. Dreaming tree was awsome you could just hear and feel the crowd loving it. Crash was a suprise to hear it also gets better and better. Jimi Thing had a stange intro. that confused everyone but when it started the crown whent nuts. What you are, this song has been geting more and more popular the last two years. I have been adicted to this song. The Stone as an ancore was a suprise, but a nice one. Ants rocked, not that it doesn't every time it played. There was not intro to ants which made it different, but still great. Overall this was an awsome consert. I am so glad I have converted my girl friend over to DMB.
