Wow what a show - just look at the setlist! ---- I'm sure theres people that will complain about Bob flubbing a few lyrics, and even stopping Mississippe Half-Step and asking the crowd what the next verse was, but I felt that added to the intamacy of the whole thing and it was a great show. I was suprised when he said he's taking a break - I was expecting 1 set. During intermission which was maybe 15-20 minutes I asked my brother if he thinks the 2nd set will be more likely 2nd set songs, and as you can see it pretty much was standard 1st and 2nd set songs (in each set). What a great choice of tunes to play .... Bob wasn't lieing when he said "I'm not going for the low lying fruit on the trees when I take my acoustic show on the road" ..... quite a few songs I didn't expect to get acoustic, I'd say the biggest suprise for me was the Death Don't Have No Mercy. I called the Days Between for tonight on the ride up which was another nice treat.

The show started about 9:10 then he played a little over an hour, took a short break and came back out and played until around 12 or a little after. It's great to be able to see Bob so close and so into and intimate with the performance, allthough nothing could compare with last nights Ramble. I was expecting general admission but there were a ton of seats, we should of got in line earlier but still ended up about dead center in row H, many people didn't get a seat. Looks Like Rain>Peggy-O was really nice and 2 songs I've never gotten and been hoping for a while now. There were some talkative people in the crowd and some (one right next to me) people that you wish wouldn't sing with Bob but it was a very nice place to be able to see him at. Something was up with the mic during the first song (feedback ?) but I didn't notice it after that.

I can't wait for the rest of his solo dates to be rescheduled - I'm going to have to check how far I am from all of them and maybe I'll hit more then Pittsfield and Westbury. I'm at the hotel now wide awake, brother passed out. I was like 20-30 minutes from the hotel but was starting to get real tired so I popped a NoDoz to avoid nodding off or anything. This is actually my first time being 'on the road' for any shows - I always drive home after. It's pretty fun though, especially if all hotels these days have internet access - I def gotta get out on the road more.

No merchandise for sale tonight but I got a free little home made poster a mother and son were giving out, they wrote 2001 instead of 2011 but its still cool. I smelt a little pot at the very end but didn't notice anyone else trying to smoke besides that, I didn't bring any in - I was pretty toasted from the car though and I ate just a little bit of shoomies. Really good time tonight ..... can't wait for Moe.Down tomorow ----- hoping for another Bob/Bruce collaboration tomorow.....

gotta admit though - I was hoping for an acoustic One More Saturday Night ..... but wasn't expecting it cause I know he did a saturday acoustic show in May where he didn't do OMSN

one more note, before busting into the first song he said "this is the only song I ever wrote over the phone" reefering to The Music Never Stopped

Wow. Looks fantastic! Hope he's taping this stuff, at least for some kind of download. Also hope he comes a little closer to Philly.

Looks like you are batting 1000 MushroomMan.

Nothing acoustic posted on archive, but this 1992 acoustic show will entertain you.


And here is that Marin Symphony show from Sugarmegs
