has sless sung b4?
Nice set list. Hope they repeat some of those songs tonight
Sless getting in the act? Cool, guess he figured if Molo gets to rap (a short one at the Sweetwater), then so can he.
Road To Armageddon
maybe they will play Snakebit tonight.
Oh man, what a kickass show!! The place was hot and the music simply sizzled!! It was Lee's birthday, and there's no greater party than a DNF show in NorCal. For me, the show really kicked into high gear beginning with Different World > Long Gone Sam. Second set was simply transcendent, don't see how it can get much better than that.
Great seeing all you freaks there, first at the Shanachie Pub/Purple Thistle > Grange. I'll bet there were 25 or more Zoners in attendance. Great acoustics at the old-style Grange Hall, which had a nice high stage for great sightlines anywhere in the room, a beautiful hardwood dance floor, plenty of room to move (the place wasn't even half full, I'd guess), a ganja gauntlet ramp out the side door, a liberal policy of BYOB with nobody being hassled, and ear-to-ear grins all around.
Don't know why DNF doesn't pack 'em in everywhere they play. IMO, this band is the hottest thing going out there. Wish I could hit the last two shows in this run, but I just couldn't swing it this time. Looking forward to reviews and photos from Brookdale and Forestville!!
Budboy as always thanks for setlist
G.Fish..thanks for the review...
"..Don't know why DNF doesn't pack 'em in everywhere they play.."

Glad you made the show last night and did not pull a G.Dad..
funny... David had a spare guitar all ready when he inevitably broke a string in the second set... first time I'd seen him that well prepared... ha
just having fun the Nor Cal way
oh man I'm dying missing these....
but I guess I gots to pay my dues...
Outstanding show! Does this band actually play bad shows? I've never heard one. . . Every song had something extra special to it - a little kick, here and there. Starting with a Differrent World, the first set was jump started into a truly high gear. Molo announced this with a Krackatoan rumble and we were OFF! Cozmic, countrified-jazz, this was; good for what ails ya - and then some!
Other than what Phil Lesh does with his Friends concept, I know of no other act out there who extends the legacy of the GD as a roaring beast like this version of DN&F. Simply astounding. The second set was one for the ages. With the sound in the hall completely dialed-in, the band/ audience interaction was at the telepathic level. We were receptive to everything the band threw our way and they, in turn, pulled the proverbial rabbit out of the hat for us.
I left wanting more, yet fully satisfied with what the band had given. Haven't seen a show like that since Phil @Camden, almost a year ago (hmmm, Molo and Sless were both involved there; coincidence? I think not). But even without Lesh, this band delivers in spades and is worthy of your attention.
Worth the 8 hour drive? I once drove 15 hours for a GD show and in hindsight, I'd drive that distance to see this band too.
I'll see the NRPS locally, or at a Festival, but driving a great distance to see them? Nah. This band? Wow, this band is something really special. I used to fly out West to see Zero back in the '90's; this band would be worthy of that. And the settings this band plays in are awesome. I can't think of a kindlier vibe than that of the Little Lake Grange and the folks involved in putting this show on. Bravo, to all involved.
It was really, really wonderful to meet so many 'zoners too. Made an already fantastic show extra special. I'm not sure that in my blissed out state that I was completely articulate, but it was cool putting names/faces to 'zoner "handles" and I got to finally meet Canyon and Lisa, after years of shipping discs back and forth. Garyfish, great to finally meet you as well; I hope you dig those discs. Thanks for coordinating this Dan/Budboy - you rock, man! Nice meeting Paul and Frog PJ's as well! Am I forgetting anyone? Sorry if I am. I had a great time experiencing this mighty band with everyone that night. Thanks for having me.
Killer review, Dave. Thanks for sharing.
Great to finally meet you and Eliza briefly before the show. Would've been nice if we could have hung out more during pre-game at the Pub. Once I got to the Grange I was preoccupied with enhancing my buzz, and after the fungi kicked in I wasn't real communicative anyways. High adventure, indeed!!
Thanks for the discs!! Will have many hours of listening pleasure thanks to you!!
