DMB @ The Gorge

For just the second time in the past 25 years, this won’t be happening over Labor Day weekend this year. 🙁

No Labor Dave Weekend in 2020

Like everything else in the world, the annual three-day event at The Gorge in Washington featuring the Dave Matthews Band has been cancelled. I go about every other year, and this was a year I had planned on going. Alas, like all of my other plans, this is not going to happen.

The Dave Matthews Band at the Gorge Amphitheatre for Labor Day weekend is a tradition going back many years. I’ve been to two of the last three years. Alas, I will not be there in a week for the 2019 edition. Hopefully, I’ll get back for 2020.

On the second day of this year’s Labor Dave Weekend some in my camping group discovered that you upgrade regular tickets to reserved lawn seats next to the sound board. I did on day three. Along with the better seat, the upgrade includes admission into the Cliff House. The Cliff House (stage right, house left) was awesome for a number of reasons. You can chill on leather chairs or couches (in the shade) instead of sitting on the grass/rocks elsewhere in the hot sun while waiting. No lines for food, drinks, and restrooms (with flush toilets!). Best of all was the unobstructed view at sunset, pictured above.

Another Labor Day weekend at The Gorge with the Dave Matthews Band and the most wonderful group of campers a person can ask for is in the books. I’ve been back home for less than 12 hours, and I already miss it and everyone.

A complete video of Saturday night’s performance can be watched below (jump to minute 20 for the real start). Today’s photo is from Sunday.

2 painters, 1 canvas

…this happened.

I’m guessing this painting is hanging on someone’s wall. People probably look at it and think the sky was overdone by the artists, but this photo shows that the sky in the painting is spot on.
