Quote from: capt. scotty on Feb 20, 2011, 01:13 amMy first Dr. Dog show a few nights ago was a blast. I actually talked to someone the day of the show that said the Head & the Heart were terrible when they saw them open for Dog @ their show, and the people I went with werent in any hurry so we didnt get there until like 10 minutes before DD came on. Had this been a couple years ago, I wouldve been blown away by how much energy they have on stage, but word of mouth and live vids had me expecting that going in. That said, they best way I can put it is that they were 1 of the most fun bands Ive ever seen live. Not all around mindblowing like MMJ, not rock your face off like J Roddy Walston & The Business, not a dance party like Phish, just fun as hell - and that I didnt expect to the extent it was. I somewhat chalk it up to their sound/songs. The first 2/3 of the show was just bouncing back and forth between songs from Shame, Shame and Fate, and I loved every minute of it. The encore was pretty much a song to song segue of Easy Beat, slightly condensed, but still very nice and unexpected. One of the people I went with has seen them 10+ times, going back to 2004 when they opened for MWard and MMJ, and said it was hands down the best show from them. Biggest complaint was the venue bc if you have a drink in hand, you cant get within 25ft of the stage. The 3 songs I really wanted were RBReindeer (which I figured theyd play), Mirror Mirror, and Jackie - so Im glad I got all 3 of those.1.I Only Wear Blue 2.Stranger 3.Mirror, Mirror 4.The Ark 5.The Breeze 6.Hang On 7.The Old Days 8.Take Me Into Town 9.Shadow People 10.Someday 11.Nobody Knows Who You Are 12.The Beach 13.The Rabbit, The Bat & The Reindeer 14.Where'd All The Time Go? 15.Worst Trip 16.Unbearable Why 17.The Way The Lazy Do 18.Heart It Races Encore:19.Old News 20.Today 21.The World May Never Know 22.Fool's Life 23.Oh No 24.Wake Up 25.Jackie Wants A Black Eye.

Scott didn't remember the words so he made her lip sing it to him while the band played on ;DI wonder if that kick started the Today trend in recent setlists...I wasn't familiar with the Easy Beat album until then, but that song has become one of my favorites as of late too!

Im guessing it was sold out, I meant to ask when I was at willcall but forgot. It didnt seem unpleasantly packed, though we were stuck in the back. I will say that the sound there has been great the last few shows Ive seen there, whereas just a couple years ago the sound was terrible. Dont know if they got better people working the boards or what.
