Date Song City Timing Notes
2009-03-06 BDTNL Hampton, VA 7:01 Debut.
2009-06-09 BDTNL Asheville, NC 8:53 "Type I" version with great strumming by Trey and a short outro jam that > to "Ghost."
2009-07-31 BDTNL Morrison, CO 7:24 The jam has an interesting section from 4:05 - 5:10 where Trey deviates from the standard melody line.
2009-08-11 BDTNL Bridgeview, IL 13:32 First "BDTNL" to go "Type II" in a big way. The jam begins with a dark undertone, but then gets more upbeat and rocking. A settled section with building energy follows and > to "Carini."
2009-08-16 BDTNL Saratoga Springs, NY 20:02 Exploratory "Type II" jam which starts to peel away from "BDTNL" around 6:00. Rocking at first, it grows somewhat dark and dissonant, brightens again, and ends in a repetitive and spacey groove which -> to "Twenty Years Later."
2009-10-31 BDTNL Indio, CA 11:46 Standard "BDTNL" concludes and the band breaks into an upbeat and rocking outro jam that > to "Fluffhead."
2010-06-12 BDTNL Cuyahoga Falls, OH 13:39 Excellent "Type II" version which starts to break away from "BDTNL" at 5:30 in a rocking and upbeat direction. At 8:30, the jam shifts into an ominous, dark Mike-led groove with great playing by Fish and Page as well as Mike.
2010-08-17 BDTNL Wantagh, NY 14:14 Very good, multi-section "Type II" jam which starts off rocking, quiets down, then rebuilds with an upbeat sense.
2011-05-28 BDTNL Bethel, NY 12:10 The band incorporates a lot of "DEG" teasing/jamming into the standard format. The mood shifts back and forth from bright to dark several times, with "DEG"-like playing at various times throughout, before returning to "BDTNL." A very cool version.
2011-06-01 BDTNL Holmdel, NJ 9:50 Fiery and rocking "Type I" version with a nice big peak.
2013-07-03 BDTNL Bangor, ME 8:12 Excellent "Type I" version with great variation and playing by Trey, and no flat notes taboot!
2013-10-25 BDTNL Worcester, MA 7:40 High quality "Type I" version with spirited soloing by Trey and strong Page backing. > to "Ghost."
2014-07-30 BDTNL Portsmouth, VA 9:10 A very solid straightforward version with deft playing by Trey and great Page near the end.
2014-10-18 BDTNL Seattle, WA 9:01 A very solid in-the-box version, with strong Page in particular. At moments, it even sounds like Page teases the piano outro from "Sweet Home Alabama."
2015-08-01 BDTNL Atlanta, GA 7:41 Not the longest straightforward version, nor does it have the biggest peak. But Trey's playing is so spot on, just excellent.
2016-06-29 BDTNL Philadelphia, PA 8:40 An inspired version showcasing full-band interplay. Trey truly shines, working his line in a number of directions, sprinkling notes and modulating intensity to shape this shimmering summertime stunner.
2016-07-09 BDTNL Hartford, CT 8:36 A strong version which features contemplative, quiet, and delicate playing, unusual for "BDTNL." Ultimately, this warm, restrained playing gives way to a traditional shredding and trilling peak.
