Dave Matthews Band returned to The Gorge Amphitheatre last night for the second night of their annual three-night stand at the storied venue. The band has announced that they’ll be taking an extended hiatus following this run, giving the weekend an extra feeling of importance for fans and band alike. There’s no telling when DMB will return to the stage, so this weekend is a huge celebration of the band’s deep catalog. Night one featured fan-favorites like “The Song That Jane Likes”, “Warehouse”, “Dancing Nancies”, and “Grey Street” (among others), and night two featured more of the same, with a funky Prince cover thrown in and another appearance by Brazilian brass legend Carlos Malta.The band opened up with “Squirm”, before really getting the set started with a pair of beloved tracks in “One Sweet World” and “Granny”. The beginning of the set also featured “When the World Ends”, “Funny the Way It Is”, and a standout “Crush” before the band segued into “Bartender” and invited Malta out for his first tune of the evening. “Bartender” was only played one other time in 2016, so the song was truly appreciated by the DMB faithful who trekked out to The Gorge. Malta would join the band on “Cry Freedom”, Dave Matthews solo track “Gravedigger”, and “Jimi Thing” throughout the course of the evening, adding his signature sound to DMB’s well-oiled machine.After “Jimi Thing”, DMB performed a super-funky cover of “Sexy MF” by Prince that really got the crowd moving, before the band brought their set to a close with “Pantala Naga Pampa” > “Rapunzel”. The band returned to the stage for an extended, three-song encore of “Sister”, “Two Step”, and “Halloween” that put a cap on an excellent evening.Check out the full setlist below, courtesy of setlist.fm. Dave Matthews Band have one more show at The Gorge tonight before beginning their extended hiatus on Monday. Edit this setlist | More Dave Matthews Band setlists
“Retail prices probably won’t reflect that entire price jump since other markets providesome of those same vegetables,” he said. But prices will go up. They may even doublecurrent prices. “We’re likely to see a price spike at the grocery store from now until the next cropcomes in sometime in late March or mid-April,” said Bill Mizelle, an economist withthe University of Georgia Extension Service. Georgia temperatures dipped into the 20s, too. Fortunately, crops here weren’t hurt asmuch as in Florida. “With the drop in supply, prices for farmers and at the retail level will rise at first,” hesaid. “But if there is a lot of replanting in Florida, both states’ growers may sufferlater.” South Florida buying-point prices have nearly doubled on beans and tomatoes. Squashand pepper prices rose by 25 percent to 50 percent. “Anything they choose to replant may overlap with Georgia crops at the market laterthis year,” Mizelle said. “If Florida farmers with damaged crops replant,” Mizelle said, “consumers will pay forthe freeze now, but farmers in Georgia and Florida will pay for it later.” A produce glut at the market causes prices to the farmer to drop. As wholesalers payless for produce, retail prices drop. “We got a little damage in our cabbage and collards,” he said. “But they should recoverbefore they’re marketed. Mustard and turnip greens may have to be cut, refertilizedand allowed to regrow.” Not only did an arctic blast freeze south Georgia and Florida vegetable crops, butgrocery shoppers may get a chill when they see produce prices climb. Extension horticulturist Terry Kelley said most of Georgia’s winter crops came throughthe freeze with very little damage. The freeze may have slightly damaged the quills (the spiky leaves) of Georgia’s sweetonion crop. But Kelley said he didn’t expect the damage to be serious. “Grocery prices from April into June will probably be lower than normal,” Mizellesaid. If Florida farmers replant, the crop Georgia farmers nurture until harvest could beworth less. Kelley said anything Florida farmers don’t replant would certainly be betterfor Georgia farmers’ prices. South Florida vegetable-growing area temperatures plunged to 20 degrees the weekendof Jan. 18. Mizelle said his reports estimate total losses in some areas. Some Florida farmers with damaged crops may replant their fields, hoping to recoversome of their losses.
