As you guys are quite aware, Dave put on some shades for the final song of Alpine this weekend. Now let's backtrack a little.
Before N1 began, I was waiting for the gates to open so I could get to the front of the pit. I decided to take a picture of me in my orange sunglasses. Me and my best friend actually got a set of those sunglasses in all different colors and we have been exchanging them and stuff
I miraculously scored Pit for both nights! I did the mad dash down there and I was about 4th row center. Perfect view. As I was standing there, I was thinking about how cool it would be if Dave wore my sunglasses if I threw them up on stage.
As soon as the Crush jam began, I saw an opportunity for Dave to dance while wearing the sunglasses. I threw them up there and he actually picked them up and set them right next to Carter's set! However, he never did anything with them the rest of the night. It was a great show but I just kept wondering what happened to my shades.
N2 was the best show I've ever seen. Hands down. I don't think anything will ever beat it. Incredible performances. About halfway through that show, I spotted my shades in the same spot where Dave had set them before. I freaked out! Then, during Thank You... Dave walked back towards the Carter and grabbed my fucking sunglasses and put them on! Best DMB moment ever. I died. The band really put on some special shows for Alpine.
Also, I caught a pick from Brandi Carlile. And, if any of you in the pit remember N1 when the crew member threw out the pick into the crowd, I got that too! It's really odd though because the firedancer is like faded away from it.
Here's some awesome pictures of me and Dave in the shades. And of the pick I caught. Best weekend ever!
EDIT: Also, for any of you guys who didn't notice. Fonz retweeted the picture I sent of me in the shades!
