2003 had some absolutely ridiculous runs, that we'll probably never see again. Unfortunately they weren't always performed to the best. But man. Every show is nuts.

06/30/03

The Stone
One Sweet World
Crush
The Song That Jane Likes
If I Had It All
Fool to Think
Bartender
Pay for What You Get
Rhyme & Reason
Dancing Nancies
Cry Freedom
The Last Stop

I know this thread so far has mostly been examples of "a bunch of amazing songs played in a row", but what came to mind for me was different. I think the flow of this run of songs from Trax 15 (8.9.08) is phenomenal and makes song choices that aren't one-classic-after-another work incredibly well. I remember seeing the setlist for this release and not being impressed with the middle run, and then listening to it and being surprisingly blown away by how well-constructed the flow of the set was:

Spoon
Eh Hee >
Water Into Wine
Burning Down the House
Louisiana Bayou
Anyone Seen the Bridge > (Too Much) > Halloween > (Water Into Wine)
Out of My Hands
Crush

The repeated Water Into Wine, the way that huge energetic statements are interspersed with calm or slower builds, and the many different pieces of things around Halloween combine to make it feel like a single suite of songs. I come back to that run a lot, and I don't really like any of those songs between Spoon and Crush very much on their own.

The thread also asks about worst runs. I could pick a bunch full of SU songs and whatnot, but here’s one that may surprise people:

6/20/03

#41
Pay for What You Get
Loving Wings >
Where Are You Going

Now, imagine it’s late-June, first night of summer, you’re at an amusement park concert venue, and a few songs into the show and full of energy. #41 starts, everyone’s excited, and Boyd shits all over it. Not ideal. The song has a very mellow ending, which then goes into PFWYG, the band’a top 5 mellowest song. It’s great but people want a little energy afterwards. Instead they play Loving Wings, which at the time was another of their mellowest songs. Roi would usually bring the energy up for the jam but instead Butch does a tame light organ solo?!? Energy stays low. At this point 80% of the venue is talking over the song. Segues into WAYG, yet another super mellow song.
I honestly felt awkward at the show. It felt like a comedian bombing on stage with how little attention people were paying.

On paper those 2003 setlists were some of the best of all time. Unfortunately, as you mentioned, the performances were not good.

Great pick! There is something special about that Alpine show and that run is a great variety of tunes.

Yuck. Yeah, June 2003 shows are a total disaster and a complete no go zone for me when it comes to re-listening to shows.

This is 5/21/16, but yeah totally agree. One of the strangest, coolest encores I've ever seen.

Along with this FIVE-song encore from 7/8/11:

Sweet
Stay or Leave
Jimi Thing
Shake Me Like a Monkey
Stay (Wasting Time)

While this collection of songs isn't my favorite, this felt like a never-ending encore, which was a treat. It just kept going, it was so odd.

That encore from 2016 is insane. I think i remember watching the setlist that night and thinking the show ended super early. Then they played a very long encore to make up.

As for the 2011 caravan encore, that was N1 and i dont know if it was because we were stuck way off to the side but other than the sweet debut i didnt remember much. I also remember thinking, oh cool they are going to clearly play super late because they are way the hell out there a some park they basically made. N2 was super forgettable, but N3 has a fantastic opening run i listen to often.

One Sweet World
Bartender
Say Goodbye
The Best of What's Around
Captain
Shotgun
Warehouse
Spaceman
Seek Up
When the World Ends
Rhyme & Reason >
Sweet Emotion
Idea of You

After that, it kinda falls off the cliff. The N3 encore was an extreme letdown for me. I hadnt seen Halloween yet, and this was the only caravan they didnt play it at. Not to mention Dave did a ton of talking after Some Devil with someone offstage, and then just played sister which wasnt on the setlist.

Some Devil
Sister
Ants Marching >
Thank You

This run from n3 was insane. So incredible. I remember even the placements of Spaceman and WTWE fitting like a glove, flow-wise. That whole run flows beautifully.

Yeah, it fell off a cliff in the final 1/3 of the show with the likes of Can't Stop / Gravedigger / Sister, but I was very happy to get Buena in that mix.

I even enjoy Spaceman in this run. its not my favorite song, but it was a good break from the flow. Also, followed up by Seek Up it gets things right back on track.

I honestly dont get the love for Buena, its a fine song. But i also didnt know the song before DMB covered it.

Neither did I. That's part of what makes it good. They didn't pick a classic rock hit that everyone knows, and that everyone covers. They picked something unique, particularly with sax on it which fits the band well.

Oh, absolutely, but that run in particular is just beyond perfect.

Spring 2002. Great tour, but..

Bryce Jordan Center

Encore:
Space Between
I Did It

People walking out that night heads down straight shocked. That’s the stuff that drives me crazy about Dave. He knows that’s no good!! The collective sigh x 2 was truly embarrassing for them/him.

Yeah fair.

Since then, I've seen Rye Whiskey / Shake Me Like a Monkey, which I think is worse (or at least equal).

And I know there have been Shake Me alone encores.
