I went with Christine. A cloudy rainy night didn’t stop me from enjoying the staple of the summer – seeing DMB live.
The band played their hearts out. “Don’t Drink the Water” was a fantastic opener along with a beautiful version of “Pig”, as I looked up into the cloudy Philadelphia skyline from the lawn.
In addition, I enjoyed hearing “Proudest Monkey” and “Satellite”, which seemed appropriate for the weather conditions this evening, as well as, “Crash Into Me”.
Boyd Tinsley played a fantastic, ripping violin solo on “Lie in our Graves”. “Jimi Thing”, “Grey Street”, and a jamming “Louisiana Bayou” were also excellent and a lot of fun.
The new songs “Break Free” and “The Idea of You”, I thought were excellent as well. I’m looking forward to when they record them on an upcoming album.
The encore included the full version of “Dreaming Tree” and an energetic “Ants Marching” to end the night. Despite the cloudy, rainy weather, DMB never disappoints, and this year, once again, was no exception.
