Yonder Mountain String Band: 4/7/2010

On my only trip (so far) to Portland OR, my wife and I thought it would be cool to check out a concert there. A friend of ours, who was from the area originally, recommended that we try to see a show at the Crystal Ballroom. He said it was an historic venue that has the only floating dance floor in the country. (Check out history on Wikipedia.) So I did a search before heading out there and saw that Yonder Mountain String Band was playing during our sojourn there, so I bought tickets.

The venue was very cool, and lived up to the hype. The dance floor rests upon a bunch of springs, so it moves along with the music, driven by the patrons who are dancing. It was a unique experience, for sure.

Although I had heard of YMSB, I was not really familiar with their music, but had a great time nonetheless. My wife and I danced and had a blast, although we did get tired and left a little early. We had not quite acclimated to the time difference.

Anyway, I managed to find the setlist online, so here ya go.
