After last nights show I was really disappointed with how tonight went. Not even my first spoon, write a song and a killer two step could save it. Every time it felt like the energy was growing along came a hammer to crush it. Boom jimi, blam everyday, whamo shake me. Top it off with a die trying opener and hunger and you are left with a mediocre set at best.

One of the worst N2 shows I have seen with the exception of Spoon & then the encore of Drunken Soldier > Two Step. Tonight didnt seem to have any flow at all. Would have a fast paced song then slowed the whole show down with slow song after slow song. Broken Things, If Only, Gravedigger, Jimi Thing, So Damn Lucky, Mercy, Space Between, Write a Song... WAY too slow for this guy. Cant play all of those w/o Nancies/Warehouse/Billies or some other quick paced songs to name a few that wouldve had this place going nuts.

Another fun time volunteering with REVERB for the food drive! My friends flew into Dayton OH from Maryland and I picked them up. Crazy rainstorm just before the show started but we had fun anyway. Right front and center on the lawn!

The Spoon duet with Brandi was really cool. The encore was one of the best I have seen. Drunken Soldier sounds great live and has the potential to become a beast; great Two Step as always.

ehh..its hard not to give it at least 4 stars because there were some high moments (DIDO, What would drunken two step pig) What is with the Spoon love fest? not sure I get it...N1 and last years N2 really set unfair expecations...

Spoon! Spoon! Thank you Brandi Carlile for being the opening act and singing that with the band. That was absolutely the highlight, but there were tons of great moments like Pig, Gravedigger, Drive In Drive Out, and an awesome Two Step to close. Best show I have been to since the Circus at Bader Field.

Great versions of Spoon and Drunken Soldier.. most definitely worth going to but expected a bit more from the older cuts. Gravedigger was great, You Might Die Trying would have been better later.

Night 1 was probably the better overall show but this show had the bigger highs including first and foremost Brandi Carlile on Spoon, DIDO, Pig, So Right, and Two Step. I've never seen Carter out of breath before on one of his drum solos before tonight... the man killed it!

I was way off on what I was expecting to hear at this show, but was not disappointed. Drunken Soldier + Two Step is a pretty great closer combo. I was in the middle of the PIT for most of the show and was really surprised by how many people bailed for the encore. So Right and Pig were big highlights for me.

I specifically remember killer jams to Spoon, So Damn Lucky, and Two Step. I also remember that Boyd seemed to make a ton of elementary mistakes. Two straight shows for me where they opened with You Might Die, and that sucks, but what are ya gonna do?

Great great show for me! I know that everyone is different in the fact that a song I might be dying to hear is not a song YOU might be dying to hear. We are all different which is one thing we all need to remember here. And we ALL LOVE THIS BAND, regardless!!! Highlights for me: Spoon w/Brandi of course. That was TRULY special... Not my first Spoon however this version brought me to tears. The Space Between (solo into full band). So Right. Pig. And even though I have seen it so many times: Two Step! Killlllller! I agree that Boyd was having issues... Not sure what was up with that. This was show #33 for me and I thought it blew away N1 (even though N1 was still awesome!!) I just think that based on my personal songs I wanted to hear... This night killed it for me! I love this band... 11 years and 33 shows... Never gets old... ever!

My 36 show overall and 11th at Deer Creek. This was my second Spoon - the first was at Alpine 2008. I love this song! So emotional and very cool to see a girl on the stage with the boys! I REALLY enjoyed SDL into the crowd singing Thank You. I wanted it to go on and on. Then, with Everyday, another sing along and it felt like the crowd was one. So Right was the final highlight for me - glad it is back in the mix.

Kind of a boring setlist... This was my 20th show and first time in the Pit. Being in the pit was an incredible experience. Met some really great people there. Was excited to see my first spoon, but I was distracted by some drunk guy that kept stepping on my feet until he got kicked out so I couldn't fully enjoy it until half way through. Cater killed it on Two Step. What was happening with Boyd? Every time he had a solo - screech. He even dropped his bow a few times. Overall... still a great time!

This is my 7th or 8th show. I went to both nights at Wrigley. This show was, as a single show, better than either night of Wrigley, though when one combines both Wrigley nights with the venue, the two come out about even. Still, this was the best jam show I've seen. The band was really into it. Rashawn had a killer solo on Jimi Thing. Everyday was a real treat, as was Pig. Halfway through the show, I felt like they could stop playing then and I'd be plenty happy with things, so the whole show felt like this wonderful gift the band gave the crowd. I've never seen such intensity from a group of performers. This was a magical show. I'll be very surprised if they don't release it. It felt as special as Wrigley.

My 12th show and by far the best! (Even better than N2 Indy last year). So much energy from the band and crowd. So much high energy, actually playing Mercy slowed the set down a bit. I love it but it's so long and slow, many people used it for an extended pee break. Best version of DDTW and Everyday I have ever heard. They really seemed to play longer tonight and much heavier songs. So Right almost sounded like Metallica tonight. Great lighting, sounds, and my seats were excellent. Center Right Upper pavilion- G Row R- about 14 rows back and close to the sound board. Much better than Night 2 which was not a bad show at all. Two Step and Carter's drum solo- no one left during this encore!

An especially strong show tonight! Spoon: a marvelous surprise and brilliantly played. Pig: another unexpected highlight of the night, and as others have commented it was amazing to get both those songs in one night. The Space Between: great performance and my first time seeing this performed live. The encore Two Step was the best Two Step I have ever seen. You could tell that both the band and the crowd (best crowd I have ever been in) were really feeling it. Great way to end another weekend in Noblesville.

This was my 2nd show at Noblesville, and they have both been amazing. Great set list, and the crowds there are unbelievable. Really enjoyed hearing DMB play Drunken Soldier live. The Two Step that closed out the encore was almost as epic as the Two Step they played on N2 in Noblesville at the end of the main set last year. I was pleasantly surprised that they played it again after just killing it last year.

Spoon was the highlight of the show and Drunken into Two Step. The ending to Spoon was a phenomenal jam where everyone was trying to impress the hot, Brandi Carlisle. It was great to see her jump up and down in excitement (I was doing the same). So I crossed Spoon of my list which is nice. Still chasing What you are and Minarets which I thought were my best chance of the songs still on my list. What you are because they have been playing it this tour and Minarets because it was cut off last years N2 set. Oh well. I'd have to check but it may have been my longest show to date. They gave it their all last night. First heard Spoon Space Between Broken Things

This was my second concert at DC. Both times I sat under the pavilion and way to the right. I didn't mind my seats the first time but this time they were ALL the way to the right, the last seats in the row. I couldn't see a video screen, Carter, Rashawn, Jeff and could hardly see Stefan. The view irritated me badly and it seemed like many songs ended the same. I didn't enjoy this show.

This was my first show back after thirteen years and what a show it was! I found myself single after many years, so I decided the day of the concert to go down and try my luck at getting a ticket. Success! I wasn't disappointed in my decision. The set list was spectacular with Jimi Thing, Hunger for The Great Light, Pig, So Right, and Shake Me standing out in my opinion. Many of the songs had special meaning, and the person who gave them that meaning was in attendance, as well. The encore - OMG! - I still can't get over the twenty minute Two Step. I was floored and awe-stricken. The perfect return into the live DMB experience!

There are some gems if you look through this setlist Pig, Spoon w/ Brandi, Jimi, Drunken Soldier > Two Step. But there was a complete snoozer combo in the middle of the set -- Mercy > Hunger > The Space Between > So Damn Lucky > Write A Song.

So Damn Lucky isn't bad, but this one felt flat, probably because it followed those three songs. And Boyd was off his game.

It was a weird/random setlist and with Boyd beginning his solos with a screech every time I still think N1 was better. However, it was still a great time because I got to cross some songs off my list, such as Spoon, DIDO, and Hunger.

Called Brandi coming out for Spoon weeks ago, but to see it actually unfold was incredible. Show had higher highs and lower lows than n1 but that does not stop it from the deserved five stars. Finally heard Broken Things, and Spoon completed BTCS for me. Fantastic weekend, see everyone at Alpine.
