First show, first introduction to dmb. I was indifferent to dmb at the time; Only familiar with music videos and radio play, I was no fan of jam bands (G.D. or Phish) and assumed dmb only tried not to sound like them. I mostly went bc my friends were looking forward to the show and had an extra tix. (i might of drove too?). Starting w Two Step, I probably asked my (legit dmb fan) buddy if all their songs were like 'this!' at conclusion of every, other, song played. A couple made out hard, directly in front us, through the e n t i r e Crash into me performance (not that what was happening on stage was so fantastic) but I remember thinking 'I'll never be fan of this band'. Minarets & Drive In Drive Out probably solidified fandom.

While the World is not the best venue there is still something almost magical about it late on a Friday afternoon in June when you should be at work. First time I saw Ben Harper and his version of Sex Healing had me on the verge of tears. DMB was awesome, as usual. When Ben and Leon joined the band I was knocked out. The only bummer was that Paul & Mike wouldn't sneak us down to their seats.

FIRST DMB SHOW! Second time at the World, I will see them several more times here over the next few years. The lawn looks miles away from the stage, but i never had lawn tix ...seat tickets are a MUST! The sound is decent but much better near the stage. And at night, cigarette LIGHTERS up! I thought for sure i started my DMB obsession in 1995. Most my friends listened to them but I never connected. Until this show! After this show, I purchased all their studio albums and gave up on collecting Pearl Jam live CDs (mostly) for DMB live bootlegs. This show was so much fun; The DMB-meathead-fan bug bit me. After every song I asked my dmb-fan-friend What Song Was That? Every song was another party, only to be topped by the next. Two Step Dancing Nancies Warehouse (this was the first time hearing these songs) The Drive In Drive Out encore took us right back to the top but you say you want to start again, I say, No Way, No Way but you convince me again, you get me back there... I should give this concert a 5 since it is the show that finally got me hooked. But this band was continuing their ascent to the plateau. And THOSE shows (1999, 2000) were astonishing; The very best, for real, For Real 5s!

My first DMB show. Had a great time. Didn't realize it that night but caught one of the few performances of Toy Soldiers. I wish I knew then what I know now. I would appreciate a show like this much better now.

This was my first Dave show and what a show it was. Ben Harper put on an amazing opening act and then joined in at the end for one of the best performances I have ever seen Dave, the band, and Harper do. Overall it was one of the best if not the best dave show I have ever seen.

My first Dave show. Pretty fuzzy these days, but still remember the opening "Yeah" from #41 and Ben Harper beating a bongo during watchtower. SWEET!
