Of all the DMB shows I have been to, this was one of my favorites. I went with Rob for the second summer in a row. I drove my Acura Integra. Tailgating was fun in the parking lot. The crowd was energized and rowdy, and this was one of the most rocking shows I’ve ever seen them play.
I thought “The Stone” was a terrific opener, and after they did “American Baby,” “Grey Street,” and a really rocking version of “Hello Again,” it really turned out to be a tremendous show!
I loved all the new songs from the Stand Up album, “Dreamgirl”, “Smooth Rider”, “Hunger for the Great Light”, and the title track “Stand Up”.
The old classics “Ants Marching” and “Too Much” sounded fantastic, and an unbelievable version of “Louisiana Bayou,” ended up being my favorite song of the night. They really jammed on that song and I couldn’t stop dancing!
The encore contained a jamming rendition of “You Might Die Trying” and a haunting version of “What You Are” with a magnificent scream by Dave at the end. Overall, they played a fun and energetic set throughout and loved every second of it.
