I took the River Line NJ Transit train from Bordentown to Camden for $1.60!  I met some fellow DMB fans on the train and they offered me a beer from their cooler.  I then met up with my DMB friends Elaine along with her friends and Dan and Carol were in the same parking lot too.  It was a lot of fun tailgating and the weather was perfect!  I hung out in the lawn with Elaine and her friends just prior to the show starting where I went down to my seat in section 203.  I then met another DMB friend from Facebook in Peggy Anne!2016-06-24-dmb-01The show kicked off with an awesome version of “Squirm” as the weekend opener!  It would be followed by the most unbelievable and amazing version of “Seek Up.”  All band members including Boyd Tinsley, Jeff Coffin, and Rashawn Ross really shined and it was the best version I had ever heard.  That song flat out blew me away tonight.  “Seven” sounded great, as was “Fool To Think” which I have not heard in a long while sounded cool.

“#41” sounded beautiful tonight as did the song debut of “Plastic Girl.”  I thought it was very good.  “When The World Ends” and “The Best of What’s Around” sounded terrific tonight as well, as did “Dancing Nancies,” which did not segue into “Warehouse” even though it was played after but with the usual intro.  Jeff Coffin played another great solo for “Lover Lay Down.”

A new song DMB debuted on this tour that I could hear tonight was “Samurai Cop” which I also liked a lot.  “Grey Street”, “You and Me,” and an awesome “Pantala Naga Pampa” into “Rapunzel” ended the set.  The encore provided terrific versions of “Pig” and “All Along The Watchtower”!  It was an insane set list and an awesome time!

I got together with friends Wendy and Beth and I drove down to tailgate.  We stopped at Boyd’s Pharmacy in Bordentown, NJ to pick up tailgating supplies (see pictures below).  Luckily, we met up with Elaine and her friends again in the parking lot to tailgate.  It was a terrific time.

I saw another terrific show, this time with Wendy and Beth next to me.  We sang and danced all night!  Overall, it was not quite as good as Friday night 1 but it was still awesome!  Highlights for me included “One Sweet World,” “Belly Belly Nice,” and an amazing rendition of “Crush.”  “The Song That Jane Likes,” and a great version of “Why I Am” rocked the house as I thought about how great LeRoi Moore was and I’m sure he was there in spirit.

In addition, I loved “You Might Die Trying” and “Don’t Drink The Water” tonight as well.  I caught most of “Jimi Thing” when Wendy wasn’t feeling good so unfortunately, we had to leave and ended up missing “Sexy M.F.,” as well as the encore of “Granny,” “Ants Marching,” and “Halloween.”  I was disappointed. Nevertheless, I am very grateful I could spend two nights in Camden seeing my favorite band and hanging out with all my DMB friends!

It was a cloudy, rainy, and stormy day. It rained the whole time. I went with Dan, Carol, and Wendy. I drove my nautical blue 2012 Toyota Corolla S.

Highlights in the acoustic set for me included “The Needle and the Damage Done”, “The Stone”, an outstanding “Typical Situation”, and a full-band version of “Stay or Leave”. The electric set featured the opener of “Don’t Drink the Water”, an excellent version of “Crush”, “Rapunzel”, and “The Best of What’s Around”.

The encore was one of the weakest I ever seen with “The Space Between” and “Shake Me Like a Monkey”. Other than that, it was good, but not great.

It was a beautiful day in the San Francisco bay area and a great night for a DMB concert!  I went with my sister Beth (Zenya) for what was her first DMB concert.

The Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California is a fantastic place to see a show!  I was very impressed with the venue and the scenery of the San Francisco Bay in the background.  My only real complaint was the lawn area was a bit steep and kind of uncomfortable due to its hardness of the ground from the lack of rain in California.

In addition, the crowd seemed very mellow as they sat down for most of the show, and there was a constant smell of marijuana being smoked.  Other than that, the Greek Theatre at the University of California in Berkeley is a terrific venue for a concert, there isn’t a bad seat in the house!

The acoustic set was good with “Stay or Leave” as the opener featuring just Dave and Tim.  In fact, I have heard a different opening song for every DMB show that I’ve been to.

Nice versions of “Satellite”, “One Sweet World” and “Sweet” followed.  Once again, I was able to hear “Crash into Me”, this time in the acoustic set, and it still sounded pleasant after all these years.

One of the highlights of the night for me was an awesome bluesy acoustic version of “Rhyme & Reason”.  Tim Reynolds did an amazing guitar solo that just blew me away and one of the best songs of the night!  It was great to hear that song performed live again!  I haven’t seen DMB play that song since 2003!

“Recently” sounded decent, though not my favorite, and once again, another fine performance of “Ants Marching” concluded the acoustic set on this Saturday night in Berkeley, California.

The electric set kicked off with “#41”, one of my favorite DMB songs.  However, it seemed like it was cut short a little bit and really didn’t feature any horns which was disappointing.

“When the World Ends” followed and it sounded excellent!  It’s been awhile since I’ve experienced that song live and it was terrific!  Another highlight of the night for me was an awesome version of “Rooftop”!  It really rocked the Greek Theatre!  “Digging a Ditch” sounded beautiful tonight as well.

“Warehouse” was also a pleasant surprise by itself which sounded more like the studio version with the intro but would end with an awesome jam and a “Louie, Louie” interpolation which was a lot of fun!

After a nice version of “If Only”, DMB played a magnificent rendition of “Grey Street” with an outstanding jam at the end featuring both Rashawn Ross on trumpet and Jeff Coffin on sax.  They both really shined on that song and it really rocked!

“Lover Lay Down” sounded beautiful and mellow, and like “Rhyme and Reason” it is a song I haven’t heard live in a while and was nice to hear again on this night in Berkeley, California.

Unexpectedly, “Everyday” followed and out came the Lovely Ladies!  I haven’t seen DMB perform with them since 2001.  Boyd Tinsley shined on this song, as did the Lovely Ladies on backing vocals!  The song was a lot of fun for this nice night in Berkeley, CA.

The Lovely Ladies stayed on stage and provided background vocals for “You & Me”, and an absolute awesome bluesy version of “Can’t Stop”, which might have been my favorite song of the night, and it was actually the first time I experienced that song for the first time.  The set ended finally with the Talking Heads cover “Burning Down The House”, which sounded great and rocked the house!

The encore started off with a real nice version of “The Space Between”, followed by a decent rendition of “Granny” and then ultimately ending with “Rapunzel” which I haven’t experienced since the 2000 tour.  It was a good, but not a great encore, in my opinion.

My sister and I had a good time at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California for her first DMB show and my first DMB experience on the west coast.  Although this was not my favorite show or set list, it was nice to hear some songs I haven’t seen DMB perform live in a long time such as “Rhyme & Reason”, “When The World Ends”, “Digging a Ditch”, Lover Lay Down”, “Can’t Stop”, “The Space Between”, and “Rapunzel”.  However, I found this show a little disappointing compared to the June 14th show in Camden, New Jersey earlier this summer.

DMB did rock the bay area literally.  Later that night, approximately 3:30 AM pacific time, a major earthquake hit Napa Valley, and shook the whole San Francisco bay area region.  I got to witness my first earthquake!  I guess DMB rocked so hard that they caused an earthquake!

The opener of “Dreamgirl” was a pleasant and wonderful surprise, since I haven’t heard it live since 2005.  “Drive In Drive Out” sounded terrific as well.

A song I greatly enjoy but haven’t heard live and in person since the 2004 tour was “Joyride” and it sounded great!  I’m so glad they played it.

Other impressive songs played tonight included brilliant versions of “What Would You Say”, “Crush”, and “JTR”, plus an excellent cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Good Times Bad Times”, which really rocked the house!

“#41” sounded amazing; as did “Why I Am”, “Help Myself”, and a beautiful rendition of “Mercy” with Dave himself on piano.

“So Much to Say” followed and was nothing short of fantastic.  In addition, a very impressive version of “Drunken Soldier” was played as I got to experience that song live for the first time.

DMB would play quite possibly the best version of “Typical Situation” I have ever experienced, and for me was one of the best moments of the night.

DMB ended this terrific set with the classic “Ants Marching” leading right into a rocking version of “Halloween”!  It was amazing!

The encore was also remarkable, with a delightful version of “Oh”, a reprise of “Lie in Our Graves”, a magnificent version of “Pig”, and then an absolute jamming and rocking version of “Two Step”!

It was an incredible and fantastic ending to this Saturday night, another superb performance by DMB, an outstanding set list, and one of my favorite concerts by them of all-time!  🙂
