Indy was a blast! Friday's show was pretty good but Saturday's show was one of the best shows I have seen of my 17! It was nice to meet you Kathryn and your daughter and I am looking forward to Cincinnati on July 12th!

I could see how camping in the field may not be ideal for a 16 year old! But I bought a camping pass through Warehouse when I got the tix. I believe it was $85 for the two nights and we split that between 4 people. I go in a group. I think this year we have 7 or 8 total so we will have 2 camping spots side by side for a bigger space. They have portapotties and we bring one of those camping shower things and put it by the cars. We always have a grill and bring a lot of good food and drink of course. You are welcome to come by or we could meet up inside.

We usually stay in a hotel. I am going with my daughter, age 16. She is obsessed with them almost as much as me. I have only camped twice at any venue but that might be quite fun. How do you get reservations? Who do you go with? I "camped" in a motor home at Charlottesville in 4/2009 and then of course did a tent at the Gorge in 9/2010. Both times it was a very good time. I am not sure how game my daughter will be for camping but we'll see. Do they have bathrooms or portapotties?

I did see the Blossom playlist...It really was fantastic! I have to say, I am a bit jealous I didn't get to see that one! Really glad it was such a great show and you enjoyed it so much!

So you are going to Inday? Awesome! We definitely should meet up! I really do love the lawn. Never had any issue with puking high schoolers (keep my fingers crossed). Don't mind rain, we always bring panchos. But yes, lets meet up. Is your daughter coming with you? Are you camping? We camp in the field by the venue.

Can't wait for INDY!!!

I will have to say------Blossom was unbelievable------has anybody looked at the set list?!!!!!!!!!!!
That was my number one show, hands down. One after the other after the other. I am in awe.
Start with Nancies to Warehouse. My daughter and I made a list of songs we wanted to hear: I always like Warehouse, Crush, and Rapunzel. And of course I want to complete my list of all the studio songs heard live so that included Say Goodbye, What You Are, and Captain and Cry Freedom (since he has played all of these so far this summer). I have a special love of OH, my daughter loves this one too. She wanted to hear OH, Save Me, Belly Belly Nice, and Recently. Boy did we hit the jackpot. Best set list ever. Blossom is amazing, secluded (right in the middle of a National Forest), small, intimate, and beautiful. The weather cooperated for the most past, we were either in the pavilion or in the car when it down poured, otherwise it was very warm. Crowd energy was a 10! What a great time. So looking forward to Indy.
I have Warehouse pavilion seats both nights, Brad---that rain is the reason why I would never sit on the lawn---well and the puking high schoolers too. Friday section G Row W, Saturday section D Row H. It would be fun to meet. I think there are several others that go to Indy too-------?Nikki and at least one other. I'll have to figure out who by looking at the member list but I have never met any one in person.

When we go to Inday, we always get GA and sit near the bottom of the hill stage left. Usually in the middle of that bottom left section. I have actually never bought actual seats to a Dave show. I have had GA every show!

Are you going to Noblesville?

Wow, the way this tour is shaping up looks fantastic. I cannot believe so far they have only played 5 shows and have already played 60 different songs. That is really unbelievable and is a testament to this bands music talent (and Dave's ability to remember words to songs) although I think his uncanny ability to change songs, make up new verses and scat are a defense to making any real "mistakes"!

I got mixed up on my post 5/23/13---the band has never played DREAMS OF OUR FATHERS, not MOTHER FATHER live. I have not seen either of these songs.

I did not realize that SAY GOODBYE was played in Indy in 2009---the one year I didn't go to Indy because I had done the spring tour. So Brad, what kind of seats did you get? I signed for mine last week. Wonder if Nikki is going to this yr there, I believe this is a venue she has been to ---I believe she is originally from Cincy or has family in Cincy so she has been there too. I know mine are OK, in the upper pavilion, but I like Noblesville, it is pretty intimate.

I saw them in Pelham, AL on April 6 (pre-summer tour). It was my first time at the venue and it was a great day. The show was mostly older jams. They debuted the John Denver cover. I didn't get to hear enough Tim Reynolds, but that's just a personal preference. It was another great dmb show! Can't wait to hear about all of your Summer experiences.

I LOVE SAY GOODBYE!!! That is a Top 10 favorite for me! I have been lucky enough to see it twice (2009 Indianapolis, 2011 Chicago) but would love to see it again!!!

h I am crazy psyched----already in the set lists in the early concerts------two songs I have never heard LIVE yet!!!!!!! CRY FREEDOM and WHAT YOU ARE.

Also was lucky enough to get my first Christmas Song last year on December 4 in Louisville. It was fantastic! Wasn't sure i'd actually ever get to see it.

Wow, what would I like to hear that I haven't...Stolen Away of 55th, Pay For What You Get, Angel, Best Of What's Around, I'll Back You Up, Lover Lay Down, and Grace Is Gone off the top of my head.

Not to mention I need to hear a Crush and Two Step...my two favorite live songs!

I can not wait until Indianapolis! 28 days...

I want to hear these and SAY GOODBYE, SPOON, PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET, KIT KAT JAM, CAPTAIN, SAVE ME, OH, ANGEL, MOTHER FATHER (never before played live), LET YOU DOWN. These are the studio songs I have never heard live after about 30 shows.
(I will tell you where I checked off a lot of songs on my bucket list----the Gorge 2010, three shows without a single repeat.) Still haven't heard Christmas Song--I went to a December show last year thinking I might hear it.

How about all of you---what do you really want to hear this year?????
