So, it took long enough! What a wonderful night with the GrooGrux Kings in Nashville! This show BLEW AWAY my time at Atlanta, and even though I had nosebleed seats the experience was amazing.
Bartender – I was kinda bummed to hear the same song open my second show, but that bum-ness was short lived. I’m respecting this song more and more with the passing of LeRoi Moore last year, and the passing of my mother. I dedicated it to my mom befor the song swelled up in it’s chorus. Gotta love Jeff Coffin ripping the pennywhistle and the “If I Only Had A Brain” interpolation! Loved it!
Grey Street – One of my FAVORITE songs! This had tremendous energy, the best I have ever seen from the guys! Jeff and Rashawn tore this one up. Still miss the 3rd verse, but I’m glad to hear this one.
Last Stop/Satellite – Dave totally pulled one on the crowd by softly strumming his guitar, plaing the first few chords to The Last Stop and even singing the first verse….and as soon as he got to “…this is the last stop,” he started playing the main riff to Satellite and it drove everyone NUTS!!! Kinda gave me a case of blue balls, because I REALLY wanted to hear The Last Stop, but Satellite was a crowd favorite and it felt good singing along to it.
Seek Up – I LOVE this song! I was worried that we wouldn’t be able to hear it this spring but the boys didn’t disappoint! It’s a tad long and of course I was sort of bummed seeing everyone sit down and complain, but you can’t get much better than this song.
Burning Down The House – I’ve never heard the DMB cover of the Talking Heads classic, but it blew me away! The crowd went insane, and the energy level was incredible. Nice to see Rashawn on some vocals!❤
Why I Am – One of the newer tunes. Definitely poppy, but in a good way! Love the line about the GrooGrux King! Props to LeRoi!
Anyone Seen The Bridge/Too Much/Ants Marching – Dave & co broke into the bridge spontaneously after Why I Am…teased the first few notes of Too Much and went into Ants Marching! Definitely the COOLEST experience ever having everyone sing louder than the band! Almost had tears rolling down my eyes! The end jam was FANTASTIC
You Might Die Trying – I’ve always loved this song. My favorite off of Stand Up. Great jam by Jeff and Timmy at the end!
Recently – Never been big on this song but DAMN they ripped this one open! The energy never ceased: a really long extended jam kept me entertained.
Crash Into Me – This shut some of the teenyboppers up😉 Such a wonderful song, I almost cried! Wonderful to hear Dave reference the great state of Tennessee while rocking out in Nashville!
Spaceman – Wow what a cool song! Another new one, and I could see this becoming one of my favorites! A great vibe and groove going on.
Cornbread – I LOVE Cornbread! Such a fun, dirty song! Timmy was great on guitar, as always.
Funny The Way It Is – The new single. Sounds amazing live, as poppy as it is on radio. Great tune, hope to see it in the future!
Jimi Thing – Dave let the crowd sing BOTH verses to Jimi Thing! This amazed me, and, the band, who seemed flabbergasted at the volume of the crowd singing. Great jam and scat from Dave at the end.<3
Two Step – YES I finally got Two Step! This song is an amazing experience live, and came close to Ants Marching in terms of people singing their hearts out. I bet they would have sung much louder if the dancing wasn’t as fierce as it was! AMAZING drum solo by Carter at the end! The man is a GOD!
Blue Water – OMG almost got a full Blue Water!! This song sounds soo sick….I’d bitch if the song didn’t bridge itself into…
All AlongThe Watchtower – HELL YEAH since last summer’s all but benching of this tune, I was afraid that I wouldn’t hear this! But there I was, rocking out to one of my favorite songs, ever! Dave and company REALLY know how to put on a kickass show. Really amazing, I’d definitely leap at the chance to see them again! Tickets are cheap, get some now for the Summer Tour!❤
