yes.
This 2nd set was great. The Fuego > piper > tweez> 2001 > cdt was a dance party. Great piper jam and the Fuego jam started going places too.


Encore was slow but the tweeprise sent it off with a bang as usual.

Stoked there was still a raging shakedown even with no dirt lots and the disco ball pit car dance party in the lot was a great nightcap after each show. Dicks has really become a special place to see them, just wish it was a little bigger with the crazy ticket demand.

It's not the venue size driving up the demand, it's no other shows West of the Mississippi all year. Same thing happened in 2017.

Yeah true I only know one person that got shut out on Saturday. The demand was crazy this year. Worse than any NyE or show at bakers Dozen. Saw two people pay over 500 in the lot

It was pretty insane.  Saw so many people offering $200-$300 all over and nobody was giving them a second look.  It was tight.  Glad I had an extra for you!

ETA: also bummed we didn't link up!

this show was just a little bit behind the 2nd night in my opinion.  i'm not even close to tired of the kasvot and gotf songs, so setlist-wise, i'm all good here.  some great moments in both sets.  lots of high energy dance parties.  lots of beautiful slow parts.  you could hear a pin drop on the front of the floor during the horse.  tweezer was way too short, but being right underneath those lights is one of the most visually entertaining places to be in the world.

dicks is all about the party and the vibe, and that's why it has taken on a life of its own.  those lots are a ton of fun both before and after the shows!  i'm not a fan of a huge floor, but at dicks it just works.  i was beat by the end, but it was totally worth the effort.  everyone is high as hell, nice as hell, and for the most part, respectful as hell.  that shit don't happen out east.  but on the flip side, the shows seem to suffer from a lack of energy.  you aren't ever going to get your doors blown off at dicks.  there just isn't the energy in the crowd.  midwest and east coast shows, especially inside, are so much different! 

after 6 of 9 dicks and 4 in a row, i'm leaning towards couching it for the next dicks run and the saddest part will be not seeing some great friends.

Really liked Fuego Piper Tweezer. Some good weird jamming in there I'm going to need to hear again to remember exactly why it seemed so weird and good.

Indeed. I was locked in and loving it.

Agreed about the energy, anthrax. Between the spaciousness of the venue and how high I assume everyone is, it's a relatively mellow vibe. We will let the band take us to energy places but won't usually drive that ourselves. Also, everyone's old—let's not forget that.

Hell, it's Thursday and I'm still tired.
there is no explanation
it's all inside your head

Its funny because the first 2 years they did blow the doors off the place with the S show and then Fuck your face which I think was even better. The energy was there but was still super relaxed compared to the east coast shows. That whole 2012 run was amazing from start to finish and some of the best shows I have seen to date. Nowadays its usually an outlier of Summer tour that almost gets treated as just a normal festival show, like playing at Bonnaroo 3 nights in a row.

haha Stones just played there! I have a feeling they would do 2 nights at Coors Field if anything which would be pretty wild. They do more concerts there.

Is that his older brother or something?

Sure looks/sounds like him.
