This was show #28 and my first in my home state of Maine. The venue made for an interesting show as did the crowd. GA lawn for this one and was near rail for the opening of the acoustic set. Lots of chatter in the crowd and it seemed like there was something wrong with the sound or maybe the venue had put a muzzle on the soundboard because it was not anything close to what I have seen at other venues for this tour, combined with the crowd many songs lacked the pop they deserved but it was not because of the band. With that being said the band did what they always do, putting everything into it regardless and Two Step I'll back You Up, & Recently were highlights for me. Moved back and up for the second set and after getting through the gauntlet of mud that we called the bathrooms it was much better. Love OSW as set 2 opener and Blue Water was an awesome surprise, but again the sound was not right and it was difficult to hear, maybe it was just weak in GA lawn. Things heated up as the second half of set 2 moved forward and the sound improved as well with Crush. From Warehouse on it was much better and everybody seemed ready to join in and enjoy what the band was giving. Cornbread, DIDO, & STJL were excellent as well as the encore. Not sure who else was looking for the show print but it was the only one I have ever gotten that was numbered and signed; I feel like I really scored on this one. I was really impressed that this band never seems to check out and even though they have not played in Maine in 17 years and the venue and crowd was not the norm, they put on another great show and great to see them again in Vacationland. See you in Berkley.

First time in Maine. My friend, Nick, comped the trip after helping his girlfriend out for a few months. Red eye flight into Boston. Rented a car and drove up to Maine. The venue was makeshift so it had that feel. Not the best venue. Seats were pretty good in Reserved. Acoustic set was good. Opened the show with Oh (debut). Electric set opened w/ OSW. Always a great song to get the crowd going. Lots of drama on this trip which ultimately ended with the loss of a friendship due to a psycho girlfriend. Oh well, life moves on.

I've read some reviews of the venue and all I can say is I had no issues. Perfect no, but what venue is? Not doubting anyone's posts but I have attended many shows there and the experience keeps getting better. I'll be back and I hope DMB will make the trip back to Bangor too.

This was my 5th concert and first time seeing DMB in Maine. The show was excellent but the venue was the worst I have ever been to. Unless you were in the front row or over six feet tall, it was almost impossible to see the stage. I am not sure why there were not screens on each side of the stage like the other venues I have seen DMB at...??? It was great to hear IBYU and STJL and the encore was awesome!
