Kind of a meh show on paper, but after not seeing the guys since 2010, I was glad I went and had a really good time. Das` review
: Meh, people in the lawn liked it, its sort of middle of the road BW for me, I can take it or leave it
: Man, I really don't like this song. Upbeat and all, but I just can't get into it. Kinda bummed we got it, but other people liked it and it got them dancing so its fine
: I love PM. I hate that it always segued all the time, but man its awesome. Definitely a high for me tonight
: Ugh, Definitely not my favorite. It ruins PM and doesn't do anything for me at all. Owell, the g/f liked it so I can't complain
: LOVE sdl. So glad we got this, I know its not exactly high on everyones 'to see' list, but I like it a lot. Guys sounded great too.
: First time hearing this I I like it so far. Didn't really know what I was hearing at first, but as it went, seemed fairly chill, definitely some room for improvement though.
: nice! definitely pulled the crowd out of the lull we were all in. I like SR, glad we got it, got the lawn going again.
: Got this D&T last year, I like it, but man, snoozefest...
: Always enjoy a good Jimi Thing, but after seeing this at almost every show ive been to, I could definitely used something else here. Crowd loved it though, and the band sounded great
: I like spaceman, but ive gotten it too much and could really have used something else at this point.
: VaBeach gets Fishtender, we get Spacebread. Enough said
: Not bad, gets a little repetitive but glad I heard it first hand. Slight potential for a good tune here
: Yea!!!!! Love R&R, I was going crazy at this point, just glad to hear something I actually wanted to hear. some casual fans I came with had no idea what was going on, kinda brought my mood down, but great version none the less.
: Really like gaucho and glad I heard it, but once again, I was hoping for something older or at least well known, lawn was in a saze for this whole tune
: This one got people crankin again. First time hearing it, loved every bit of it, made for a good couple minutes
: Always solid, I never mind hearing it. Was hoping we would get something else to close, but no complaints. band seemed into it and the crowd around me was crazy
: Personally for me, its what made the night worth it. my favorite DMB tune and a complete surprise at E1. I was going nuts, everyone else was too, literally they could have played nothing better in this slot. Awesome
.: Another good one, but I have gotten it a large number of times before. Once again, i was kind of hoping for something else to close, but no complaints.
All in all, it was a very 'comfortable' show. Definitely not what I was expecting for having a few days off and coming back to VA, but it was fun regardless. So many Newbs complaining about the traffic, but we came back and cranked the grill up for some post' show brats and burgers.
Basically, the people who can take it for what it is had a good time. It was a very basic show, shitty casual fans, and terrible parking. If these things really bother you, im sure you had a shitty time. Im used to them by now (this being my home venue) so it wasn't really a big deal, I just hope people can see through some of the shittiness and enjoy themselves.
P.S. The tailgate was fuckin awesome. I never expected that many people to show up, and damn was it fun. Good food, some good beers, and great people. Honestly, its gatherings like that that help remind you that there are some good people on these forms and the good people far out-weight the shitheads.
