The Saturday night show just flat out rocked. They opened with the slower A Dream so Real, which they played last night too, so it must be coming out soon. Actually, there were a hand full of repeat songs from last night, like Corn Bread, Eh Hee, and #27. The band seemed on fire tonight, and there was a lot of energy in the crowd. The Gorge was flat-out packed. Tonight Robert Randolph returned with the DMB for a kick-ass version of Smooth Rider. I forgot to mention in my review of last night's show that Joe Lawlor came out and played on Rhyme & Reason, and while he is a bit corny in his showmanship, I sure do love the sound of a ripping electric guitar on some of these songs, and I wish Dave would go electric more. The addition of a full time trumpet is cool as it gives the sound of a horn section, not just a horn player. They played one of my favorites in Warehouse, and my niece, a first timer, was impressed that the crowd knew just when to "whoo" in the guitar breaks at the beginning. Dave sang a very soulful You Might Die Trying. They closed out with back-to-back-to-back So Much to Say, Anyone Seen the Bridge, and an extended Too Much. The encore was only 2 songs long, but I was hoping for 3. Dave did Sister, and then the full band sent everyone home bouncing from a great version of Too Much. One can never get too much DMB, and a previous committment kept me from the Sunday night show, so I was only 2 of 3 this year, but I am already looking forward to next year. Nobody rocks the Gorge like DMB. See you next year.
