Show Two-Four

I had a blast in Charlotte earlier this week. I had been anxiously awaiting the Dave Matthews Band show in the Other Carolina for MONTHS. And it certainly did not disappoint. We got to Charlotte with plenty of time to spare, met up with various friends, was able to hook said friends up with ticket upgrades for free, got many tasty adult beverages in my belly, and made it into the pit (!!!) with time to spare.

The pit was surprisingly awesome. I was afraid of pushing, shoving, and general douche-iness, but was pleasantly surprised by how great everyone was. The crowd was great, the band kicked ass, and setlist was a nice mix of new and old tunes. Despite being my 24th show (going to at least one show every year since ’98), I still heard two songs I had never heard live before.

The only low-light of the night was the encore. Just wasn’t very strong, but not something I really would complain too much about.

Highlights
1. Boyd’s Solo on Lie In Our Graves
2. Minarets being played for the first time since 12/13/05
3. My first time hearing Minarets and Some Devil live
