The rescheduled dates were the ONLY weekend I could go in September, AND the new island they were playing on was 10 minutes from my house. They were set up for greatness. So on Friday, I came home, ate, and headed out to the bus to head to Randalls Island. Got there in time to find a great spot, enjoy the brisk 60 degree weather, and enjoyed some Dave Matthews. There were two songs that pushed me over the edge for buying these tickets: Crash and American Baby. On Friday, I was happily surprised 3 songs in by CRASH! Then got Gray Street, Every Day and Tripping Billies (there was dancing during this one, that's for sure). Full Set List.
While I did miss killer set list night (IE Two Step, Stay or Leave, So Much to Say, Stay) I did get to enjoy some Yeuingling and a KSU Shut Out when I got home from the game at the local shady bar.
Trombone Shortie - who is AWESOME (again, where has real music been the past few years?!). And, as you see to the left it was BEAUTIFUL. I got to enjoy Josh Ritter as well. So then, like any normal 27 year old, I had an ice cream cone for dinner and randomly found one of my old co-workers and we enjoyed a third night of Dave. I didn't know many of the songs, but he REDEEMED all worries I had about skipping night 2 when he played American Baby. The Encore was also fantastic. Setlist.
Because how do you not DIG this song live?!
