Date Song City Timing Notes
1993-12-31 DwD Worcester, MA 3:38 Jam segment only following "Auld Lang Syne" (Released on Live Bait Volume 3).
1994-04-04 DwD Burlington, VT 7:41 Debut of the complete song.
1994-04-06 DwD Toronto, Ontario, Canada 7:49 Trey is just ON FIRE! A thrilling, albeit straight-up "Type I" version.
1994-06-16 DwD Minneapolis, MN 9:31 The first "Type II" version in which the jam almost immediately breaks away into a rhythmic and rocking groove before settling into some good quieter space. The jam regains some pulse and power before -> to "Contact."
1994-10-29 DwD Spartanburg, SC 10:33 Not way out there, but moments of crashing, noisy rocking beyond the standard, then some great '94 space following the final lyrics before a -> to "TMWSIY."
1994-11-12 DwD Kent, OH 14:08 Fantastic, improvisational '94-style jamming. One of the very best versions of "DwD," but oh so different from the funk versions of later years. Includes a -> "Have Mercy" -> "DwD." Somewhat unusual ending with -> to "Lifeboy."
1994-11-12 DwD Kent, OH 5:12 -> in from "Have Mercy." More excellent '94-style jamming on this epic combination which -> to "Lifeboy."
1994-11-30 DwD Olympia, WA 10:00 Gets beyond "DwD" several times with some dissonant jamming, then makes a big break at 7:00 into "Type II" terrain. Returns to "DwD," but with flashes of dissonance.
1995-06-26 DwD Saratoga Springs, NY 23:26 Very exploratory, wide-ranging jam that is rhythmically oriented and, like other Summer '95 jams, has a psychological edginess to it. -> to an epic "Free."
1995-12-12 DwD Providence, RI 31:46 Extremely improvisational, experimental, "Type II"-on-steroids jamming. Musically, it's all over the map. But "DwD" fans should give this a listen to experience the band taking a fearless plunge into the abyss. -> to "Lizards."
1996-07-23 DwD Hamburg, Germany 15:19 Starts to break away from the standard at about 8:00 into a driving, rhythmic jam which gets out there nicely. Returns to "DwD" only in the final minute, with a > to "McGrupp." Much more exploratory than most '96 versions excl. 11/27/96.
1996-08-05 DwD Morrison, CO 16:52 Great early funk jam starts at 12:00 with Page on the clavinet and Trey on the mini percussion kit. -> to "It's Ice."
1996-08-10 DwD East Troy, WI 13:04 Has a really good but brief breakdown jam from 8:15 - 11:15 before returning to "DwD" to conclude. Several other '96 versions have a similar 3 or so minute rhythmic jams that return to "DwD" (10/19/96, 10/22/96, and 12/31/96).
1996-08-16 DwD Plattsburgh, NY 15:34 Although largely "Type I,", this very popular, well-played version strays from the ranch towards the end with a -> to "NICU."
1996-11-27 DwD Seattle, WA 23:04 Very improvisational, exploratory version that leaves "DwD" in the dust after 7:00. Several sections to this high quality version which -> to "JJLC" and includes a closing of "DwD" (straightforward, 4:26 duration) later in the set.
1996-11-27 DwD Seattle, WA 3:27 -> in from "Sweet Emotion Jam." The preceding "Tweezer" and "Sweet Emotion Jam" fit nicely together with this "DwD" reprise, as if one cohesive piece of music. Following a big, exploratory "DwD" earlier in the set, this reprise version brings closure to a great sequence of music.
1997-02-17 DwD Amsterdam, Netherlands 18:25 Inspiring, upbeat jam develops some filthy, funky legs before -> to the astounding debut of "Carini," which -> "Taste" -> "DwD" (the closing section). Viewed as a single piece, it's 47 minutes of incredible, must-hear jamming.
1997-02-17 DwD Amsterdam, Netherlands 1:24 Closing section of this epic "DwD" -> "Carini" -> "Taste" -> "DwD" combination.
1997-02-21 DwD Florence, Italy 16:05 Nice melodic departure from the standard that grows increasingly funky as it progresses. Great Page B-3 action.
1997-06-25 DwD Lille, France 21:29 The jam cuts into funk mode pretty quickly, gets more rocking, then back to more funk. After a brief settle, there is a -> to "Piper."
1997-06-25 DwD Lille, France 2:59 The ending section of this "DwD" -> "Piper" -> "DwD" combination includes "CYHMK" teases and -> to "Meatstick."
1997-07-22 DwD Raleigh, NC 19:56 Multi-part, heavy duty funk jam -> "Mike's Song."
1997-08-02 DwD George, WA 16:34 All kinds of good funk in this strong version that -> into "Tweezer," after which "DwD" arguably returns for a minute or two.
1997-08-17 DwD Limestone, ME 27:07 A paramount, must-hear version that includes multiple stages of funk, rock, and space funk, and concludes with an incredible Mike and Trey duet which -> to an equally transcendent "Bathtub Gin."
1997-12-11 DwD Rochester, NY 19:54 High octane jam flames out at 11:00 into an excellent Page and Mike led minimalist groove which -> to "Maze." There is also a -> "DwD" from "Ghost" later in this show to complete the earlier, unfinished version.
1997-12-29 DwD New York, NY 22:00 Fearsome but exploratory jam. Moments of quiet settle are repeatedly upended by intense funk rocking. This legitimate monster "Disease" finally gives up a little belligerence only to -> into a very strong "David Bowie."
1998-07-01 DwD Freetown Christiania, Copenhagen, Denmark 20:17 Intense "Type I" jam collapses into eery space, rebuilds to "DwD" to close, then is followed by a really great 5+ minute ambient jam before a masterful -> "Dog Faced Boy."
1998-08-16 DwD Limestone, ME 18:37 Around 12:00, the jam breaks from the standard into 6 minutes of heavy funk-based jamming. > to "Piper."
1998-11-13 DwD Cleveland, OH 17:55 A hard rocking straightforward jam finally breaks into a great upbeat and swinging groove which works back to "DwD."
1998-12-30 DwD New York, NY 20:59 Improvisational and intense. Several sections in this far ranging jam foreshadow the swirling sounds and groove-based jamming that would dominate '99 - '00. Triumphant return to "DwD" to conclude with a > to "Piper."
1999-07-17 DwD Volney, NY 23:34 Blistering hot straightforward jam eventually runs out of fuel and gasps for breath for a stretch before regaining momentum and focus and returning to "DwD."
1999-12-08 DwD Portland, ME 15:09 An upbeat groove develops away from the standard that has an almost an "Gin"-like vibe to it before returning to "DwD."
1999-12-15 DwD Washington, DC 15:24 Compared to most '99s, the jam here breaks earlier into a light, textured groove that intensifies as it returns to "DwD."
1999-12-31 DwD Big Cypress, FL 23:41 Laid back but joyful millennial celebratory groove. This is feel good music. Unfinished with -> to "Llama."
2000-05-21 DwD New York, NY 20:23 At 10:35, a very good quality, quick tempo groove-based jam emerges. It settles some and returns to "DwD" to conclude.
2000-06-10 DwD Koto-ku, Tokyo, Japan 24:04 A very upbeat groove develops and grows more intense as it progresses. Eventually the jam becomes more subdued before rebuilding with spacey effects and returning to "DwD" to conclude.
2000-06-15 DwD Chuo-ku, Osaka, Japan 27:37 The jam breaks into a nice rhythmic groove around 11:40, with great Fish and Mike. Around 18:00, Trey jumps to the keyboards, and then it gets, well, weird. Similar to 12/12/95, it's very exploratory, but perhaps not transcendent music.
2000-07-15 DwD Columbus, OH 26:45 Another big and rocking groove-based jam that neatly -> into "While My Guitar Gently Weeps."
2000-09-12 DwD Mansfield, MA 26:04 A very rhythmic Fish and Mike led groove springs out of the customarily intense "Type I" section. Trey adds some spacey effects before bringing it back to close, followed by some transition space and a > to "Heavy Things."
2000-09-22 DwD Rosemont, IL 17:07 An upbeat groove-based jam develops with building intensity leading to the return to "DwD" to close.
2003-02-16 DwD Las Vegas, NV 11:05 "DwD" -> "Seven Below" -> "DwD." "DwD" gets a little beyond straightforward.
2003-02-16 DwD Las Vegas, NV 2:24 -> in from "Seven Below" to close and complete the sandwich.
2003-02-21 DwD Cincinnati, OH 17:12 Nothing too deep, just a nice "feel good" jam that bops along with sprinkles of improvisation from Trey and Page before returning to "DwD" to close.
2003-07-08 DwD Chula Vista, CA 18:59 Very "Type II" version in which Trey seems to play a less dominant role mid-jam, letting Mike and Page funk it up.
2003-07-18 DwD East Troy, WI 23:15 Incredibly improvisational and hard driving version that includes a section from 17:40 - 19:00 that sounds similar to "Woman of Tokyo." -> to "Catapult" although arguably it's really part of the same jam.
2003-07-23 DwD Noblesville, IN 20:32 Some beautiful major key jamming at first, a "CYHMK" tease, then it gets a little more dark and intense. There is some very good modulation of intensity as the jam progresses and > to "Coil" with no return to "DwD."
2003-08-02 DwD Limestone, ME 22:22 Improvisational version from the IT Festival includes a fair amount of haunting and chilling effects-laden playing from Trey and Page before -> "NICU."
2003-11-28 DwD Uniondale, NY 16:44 Stays on the customary "Type I" jam for a good while before shifting to a rocking and rhythmic bent.
2003-12-30 DwD Miami, FL 16:16 A nice and very different low intensity, melodic Trey-led jam emerges that is almost delicate before rebuilding to conclude.
2004-04-15 DwD Las Vegas, NV 16:58 Shaking off a rough start to this version, Trey leads the band into the jam which begins intensely with great thrumming Mike and growling, distorted guitar effects. The intensity gradually diminishes, resulting in more quiet play which retains an ominous sense of melancholy.
2004-06-24 DwD Noblesville, IN 17:35 Nice easy-going rhythmic groove which eventually morphs into a celebratory jam before -> "Rock And Roll."
2004-08-11 DwD Mansfield, MA 15:51 -> in from "Suzy." The jams gets well removed from "DwD" into quiet and dark exploration with great Page and Mike.
2004-08-15 DwD Coventry, VT 19:02 Very unusual version. The first jam segment is strange, spacey, and Trey sounds off-key at times. Then there's a second jam following the closing riff (without vocal refrain) which has some interesting moments and is pretty soulful.
2009-03-08 DwD Hampton, VA 22:17 An unusually melodic, intricate and mesmerizing jam develops. While also improvisational, it's the grace and beauty of this version that distinguishes it as perhaps the highlight of the run of shows beginning the 3.0 era.
2009-08-01 DwD Morrison, CO 15:22 "LA Woman" teases and an excellent moving jam with rhythmic shifts and Page on multiple keyboard instruments.
2009-08-14 DwD Hartford, CT 13:00 Atypically soulful soloing from Trey, with a strong "Reba"-like jam, shortly before the ending segue into "Wilson."
2009-11-24 DwD Philadelphia, PA 16:56 A good and wide-ranging jam develops that includes optimistic, rhythmic, and introspective sections. The jam eventually gets spacey, although it's pretty decent space and > well to "Twenty Years Later."
2009-12-03 DwD New York, NY 18:34 Intense and somewhat funky jamming morphs to major mode bliss before devolving to extended space and > to "Piper."
2010-06-17 DwD Hartford, CT 16:49 A very good clavinet-led funk groove develops. Briefly seems to be rebuilding to return to "DwD", but instead -> "Sand."
2010-08-05 DwD Berkeley, CA 14:52 A pulsing and driving jam settles down into a snappy, rhythmic and curiously enchanting section that > "Free."
2011-06-03 DwD Clarkston, MI 24:18 Inspirational, melodic and far-reaching version which includes a jam based on John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme." Many consider this among the very top jams of 3.0 and proof that "DwD" is as potent now as ever. -> "Fluffhead."
2011-08-16 DwD Chicago, IL 20:57 Multi-faceted, improvisational version with mesmerizing, pulsing and triumphant moments. Eventually mellows into good space which regains energy and -> to "Twist."
2012-06-29 DwD Noblesville, IN 14:45 High quality jam develops that is dark and brooding at first, but grows increasingly upbeat and intense. > to "Sand."
2012-08-17 DwD San Francisco, CA 15:44 Good multi-part jam with great Mike in the early, pulsing section, then more good Mike and Trey in a mostly upbeat, major mode section that has a pensive quality. Unfinished with a > to "BOAF."
2012-12-30 DwD New York, NY 19:00 Phenomenal improvisation. Dark, bright, introspective, spacious, beautiful, powerful, riveting - all applicable descriptors for this far-ranging, exploratory and must-hear version. > to "Twenty Years Later."
2013-07-22 DwD Toronto, Ontario, Canada 18:15 Some really beautiful, inspiring and upbeat jamming ("HOSE") darkens, gets punchy, and > to "2001."
2013-08-02 DwD San Francisco, CA 14:11 Quality exploratory version that succinctly covers a range of interesting territory before > to a compact, solid "Caspian."
2013-10-29 DwD Reading, PA 21:20 A excellent, multi-section jam begins dark and stormy, then starts grooving in a very upbeat manner with growing energy. After letting the "HOSE" run for several minutes, the jam methodically cycles down.
2013-11-02 DwD Atlantic City, NJ 16:18 The jam breaks into a good percussive and rocking groove, then it lightens and brightens, re-energizes, and -> to "Piper."
2013-12-29 DwD New York, NY 18:27 Great version which rocks along in familiar territory before becoming deep, dark and thought-provoking. The jam lightens in sentiment around 12:00, breaks into a power-rocking groove and makes a stately return to "DwD" to close.
2014-07-11 DwD New York, NY 18:22 The jam breaks at 8:00 into some funky stretching, but Trey quickly seizes on a great riff, which the band coalesces around. As the boys bring the jam up to celebration mode, there is some brief "Woo" jamming before it settles to quieter play with great Page.
2014-07-15 DwD Canandaigua, NY 20:12 A nice jam departs the standard, moving into some darkish probing. Gradually, the jam builds into a more upbeat groove, but with exploratory moments interspersed, included some great funky Mike and Page teaming, and a Trey and Fish-led rocking ending section.
2014-08-01 DwD Orange Beach, AL 19:46 Following some quality "Type I" playing, the jam veers away at 9:00, shifting to minor mode and exploring some quieter realms. At 12:40, the mode shifts back to major, and the jam builds to an inspired peak, followed by additional tension-filled exploration.
2014-08-30 DwD Commerce City, CO 14:53 The typical "DwD" jam includes high energy and dissonant moments. Then the jam settles down and shifts into some soothing and cerebral grooving which -> to "What's The Use."
2014-10-24 DwD Inglewood, CA 16:24 After extended and very pleasant "Type I" jamming, Mike and Trey drive the play down into some murky and atonal depths. Then this diseased ship gloriously resurfaces to a magnificent conclusion.
2015-01-03 DwD Miami, FL 25:46 The band makes a breathtaking, powerful statement with this improvisational and multi-section juggernaut. The now common 3.0 "Hose" style is enhanced by a swinging vibe and serious power rocking, bookended by great percussive funk.
2015-08-02 DwD Tuscaloosa, AL 18:52 The jam works away from "DwD" with a raw, dark tone, then shifts to some smooth, cheery and rhythmic play, which some hear as "Piper"-like. The energy and buoyant sense ramps up, and then the jam gradually recedes to quiet, brooding interplay.
2015-08-05 DwD Kansas City, MO 20:41 The band seems content to keep the majority of this jam in a low key state of quieter musing. A few energy upticks along the way to an eventually rocking peak, but this is largely a settled, chill out jam without the now typical bliss section(s).
2015-08-08 DwD East Troy, WI 13:40 A really wonderful version which, while it follows a fairly predictable trajectory with a cohesive brightening, is accented by heart-felt tone and cool sonics. The concluding section neatly shifts between warmer and more introspective sentiments.
2015-09-06 DwD Commerce City, CO 17:43 Moving beyond the typical "DwD" gyrations, the jam briefly turns atonal and dissonant, before Trey hits upon a soothing but uplifting theme/progression, which builds to an exultant peak. Although this jam format isn't novel, this proven formula in this instance pays off handsomely.
2016-01-17 DwD Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 19:12 A very solid version in which the jam initially breaks away into some dark and low intensity playing. The mood brightens, then Page starts playing samples from "Shipwreck." After several minutes, the guys abandon ship, ending the jam on a high point with jubilant, celebratory playing.
2016-07-19 DwD San Francisco, CA 15:57 Leaving the standard behind, the jam quickly gains a warm and encouraging sense. Gradually, this feel-good sense is overtaken by driven, rock-oriented play with a threatening feel. Heavy bass action, wailing guitar sounds and effects work to increase the sense of foreboding.
2016-09-03 DwD Commerce City, CO 12:47 Fierce, first-set jamming features fiery Trey and really fantastic Fish. The band explores a murky, yet musical calm, before rebuilding intensity replete with Trey evincing a fist-pumping return to the final refrain/traditional finish.
2016-10-21 DwD Alpharetta, GA 21:08 Trey dominates early, powering the band through familiar ground and creating an "old school" vibe. From here, several distinct improvisational sections emerge, with strong contributions by everyone, including a masterful Marimba Lumina section a la Trey.
2016-10-30 DwD Las Vegas, NV 21:15 An intense, driving and multi-faceted juggernaut. Initially breaking into quieter, probing play, the mood brightens into a rocking, upbeat section. Then Mike destroys the world as the sentiment turns darker, intense and ominous. Page and Fish are pivotal, but Mike rules as the energy rises to a second, ferocious peak, before settling a bit. Talk about Ass Handed!
2017-07-18 DwD Dayton, OH 22:50 Mixing some great new sounds, especially Page, with a fairly familiar jamming pattern, the band succeeds in recycling a formulaic, major mode and upbeat-oriented jam into a warm and very fresh sounding performance with a Trey-led peak.
2017-09-03 DwD Commerce City, CO 20:50 The jam is propelled atop minor mode loops into deep space, before touching down on a new world. The hatch swings open, and for a brief moment the scene is serene. Suddenly, the jam is transported at warp speed into the deep unknown, where electromagnetic thunder echoes from the Modulus, the Voyager opens transient portals through space-time, and the Languedoc transmits patterns into the spectral void in search of signs of life. Alas, we're surrounded only by the beeps of industrial robots as darkness sets in. But the >"Light" grows brighter...
