The best DMB show i have seen! Trippin Billies was amazing. The jam to Sugar Will put me in a trace. Jimi Thing and Recently great Jam Sessions. Crush had a very good intro and jam session.

DDTW good opener. Recently had a sweet jam, Jimi Thing was off the wall. Have to say the energy was just amazing. No intro on One Sweet World anymore. Overall good mix in the set list with all the new songs and great old ones.

well all i can say is BOWA is back!!! maybe because i held up a BOWA sign last night on the 4th row and dave saw it... it was sweet!!! i was SO happy to hear it come back, and it made it even sweeter that ashley disapitino called me back after i left her a drunken message earlier at the camp ground and made a fool outta myself! she happened to call during BOWA which was amazing! me, gillespie and najpaver sat together in the upper pavillion center, had a good time! we stayed at dead creek this year which is hassel free and a great time!!! najpaver had a blast...

Although it rained before DMB hit the stage, it added to the excitement and everyone got crazy and took off all their clothes. This was one of the best DMB concerts i have seen so far. He played a lot of old favorites that you could tell everyone enjoyed.

Except for the RAIN and a STUPID woman in a RED shirt that kept turning around and bothering people (argh), the show was AWESOME. I sure hope she sobered up and realized how stupid she was!!! DAVE's the BEST

THANK GOD! this show rocked. been to st. louis, chicago, and last night, and this by far was the best show on the tour yet. boyd on ants was going nuts at the end, everybody was just feelin the energy, and it was just a refreshing moment. recently, DDTW, and Ants rocked. Love the new songs more and more. so except for the guy who pissed right behind us (and we were in the pavillion) this was the greatest on the this tour yet. we'll see if alpine can top it (is there a doubt? negative.)

I had just gone to the first night eight rows back and told myself that I would never sit in the lawn again. Game across two free tickets to this show for lawn, so...of course I took them. Took my friend Adam to his first show. So it was nice to pop a DMB cherry.

Freakin Awesome show, begining to end. When it rained during O.A.R. that was badness, then DDTW as an opener!!!, the 4 new songs are all awesome, but highlights of the night had to be ANTS, BILLIES, CRUSH, JIMI, AND STAY!!!! By Far the best DMB show ive been to so far. P.S. great energy from the crowd, and to all those sittin in Sec. 3 of the lawn...BUELER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well ive been to a couple dmb shows but i believe this was the best one ever. I only just realised it after listening to it for the first time since then. I have never heard BOWA, recently, space between us, and tripping billies. WOW those songs impressed me. I couldnt believe it when i heard the billies intro. I sort of liked the OSW intro so i dunno bout that. The new songs are growing on me so much. They sound like songs that are completely diff. from any other dmb song. I am glad to see them doin new stuff. Jimi Thing...yea enough said. I called the ANTS encore and was very happy that they played it. Looking forward to Alpine Valley

Best Jimi Thing Ever!!! The whole setlist rocked. The only other show I've been to was three days prior at the World, and the two don't even compare. Deer Creek rocks, and the show was overall amazing.

User: dntbrnthpig041
Review:
Definately better than the first night. The highlight of the whole night for me had to of been Best of Whats Around. It was my first time hearing it and I was amazed. Recently was a first timer for me also, which was amazing. Billies in the middle of the set was amazing. They played it like there was no tomorrow. The version of Jimi Thing tops out right next to hearing I'll Back You Up last year. I was that amazing. Awsome, Awsome, Awsome !!!!!!! closing with Ants. Boyd was going nuts on stage, and it was awsome. Oh, ofcourse hearing the new songs was awsome, because they are great. Although liking all of them, I think Crazy-Easy is my favorite. See ya at Riverbend.

2nd Deer Creek show.. 2 thumbs up

User: gambit8706
Review:
amazing... i danced the night away. Billies jam was simply amazing and BOWA was orgasmic. even I Did It sounded good. The lawn was awesome, the rain fueled the energy at the start of the show. OAR was amazing as well. If their was ever a show to record for a live album, this is it. I was one of the first people who broke through the orange midget fence that seperated the wharehouse members from the regular kids on the lawn. If their was ever a show to record for a live album, this is it.

User: halleadm
Review:
One of the best shows I have ever seen. OSW minus intro was great. Recently was a train wreck, but Butch was defnitely throwing the funk. Nearly every song had the crowd in a frenzy. The new songs are really gathering momentum at this point. People usually gripe about I Did It, but it really fit and kept the crowd in it. Jimi Thing - wish everyone could see Dave playig this with his visual interpretations of his musings. Dave never could play a guitar solo very well, as this will show, but he definitely makes up for it during this scat. I liked the Ants closer, it reminded me of yesteryear and why I love this band live. Handed out a lot of OAR shows after their incredible set, hope you got one.

Great finish to what the band started on night 1. Loved all the new songs again...not too mention tripping billies was incredible...i couldnt believe looking out into the lawn and not being able to see one person that wasnt dancing their ass off. The energy carried on thru the rest of the show and climaxed with ants marching...oh yea, and BOWA and OSW are two of my fav songs...unbelievable show

amazing show amazing energy, great set, why the repeats? i dont know, but i didnt mind hearing Joy Ride or Hello Again a second time through. whateverdave smoked before playing jimi thing sure did the trick, he went nuts afterward telling a crazy story but it was off the hook.

Incredible. Tripping Billies jam was awesome along with the encore Ants Marching jam. Boyd dancing around the stage and losing his hat was crazy. The crowd: more annoying and less intelligent than first night, but louder. A little dissappointed with no Dancing Nancies, Lie in Our Graves, Two Step, or Watchtower but still a great show.

Much better than the night before. Better songs, more energy from the band, and the crowd was into it. Jimi Thing was the surprise of the night. Dave must have been smoking a Jimi Thing as he made up a new language. Not the best show, but 10 times better than the night before.

7th Dave show, excellent as always. Tonight, I gained a helluva lotta respect for Butch. He jammed like I've never heard on Recently...just amazing. Boyd was on fire as well, going nuts on Tripping Billies, Crush and Ants Marching. Dave was at his best on Jimi Thing, adding a nice picking part and scatting his ass off...way better than Central Park. Carter had a bigger than usual smile on his face, these guys are all excited about the new songs. Stefan and Leroi were sweet as always, Stefan had a cool new intro to Crush. New songs were excellent, Sugar Will was a little mellow, Crazy-Easy was cool, upbeat, and kinda scatty. Joy Ride was just amazing, and Hello Again was a kinda dark country-type song, best one of the four new ones. Looking forward to August in Alpine Valley...hoping for more new songs...

Amazing. Were it not 6:56 AM I'd write more, but this was only the second time I'd been to a DMB show. If I wasn't completely astounded first time out, I am now. "Don't Drink the Water" and "Ants Marching", oddly enough the opener and closer, stood out as great, but there wasn't a bad song on the set. Would've liked to had the OSW lead-in jam, but complaining any more about this show would be no short of a travesty.

odd sort of show. my favorite songs? stone, seek up, 41, two step. none of them were played. my least favorite songs? space between, i did it, if i had it all. all three of them were played. YET, this show was one of the best i have been to. (out of 27.) one sweet world, recently, bowa, billies, crush, an insane jimi thing, and ants were all fantastic. they played the whole show with a tremendous level of energy. this was an awesome show.

I have been to about 20 shows and I have never seen the band so hyped. We were up front about 3 back from the stage and then on the gate for the encore and my ears rang till Wednesday. The cool part was watching Carter and Boyd laughin at Dave during his scat-attack on Jimi Thing. Best version I have heard/seen. I only wish Bleeding Gums Murphy / Leroi would blow it out more often...but great sweatpants, he is a great sax player and under utilized. Best show I have seen, best set.

Unreal night of DMB. Highlight of the night was the best Jimi Thing that i have ever heard. The little scat that Dave does is just flat unreal. Recently was played out well. Midset Billies was nice to get the crowd jammin'. A little disappointed no Two Step. That is two years in a row without it. BOWA is always awesome. Great 2 nights in Noblesville again.
