Excellent gig, definitely a dirrent energy from their last one at 9:30. The background stories were hilarious, especially the impersonations--Fran you should have been a comedian. Below is a set list and photos to come! Thanks for the great show guys!

Amazing show! Thanks for posting the set list. We had to leave a little early because we only had the babysitter until 11pm, but this was definitely a unique show - with the comical stories and the Powerpoint presentation. The intimate setting was great! I've been going to Travis concerts since 1999 and they are as amazing a live band as ever. Love you guys!

I've listened to Travis for over 10 years now and this might have been my favorite experience with the guys. My sister-in-law was seeing them for the first time and couldn't stop thanking me for bringing her along. I've always wanted to know the stories behind certain songs and lyrics, and I got just what I wanted. I was too tired to stay and meet Fran and Andy, a HUGE regret already, but they were just fantastic last night. Thanks guys for stopping in our neighborhood again!

I've been following Travis for about 8 years. This is the first time I've seen them live. Simply put, it was an awesome experience. The music was amazing, and their enthusiasm and passion were impressive. On top of it all, they came across as really down-to-earth and genuinely nice guys. Thanks for the show!

This was by far, with no exaggeration, the best show I have ever been to in my 36 years of living!

I am 4 months pregnant and am thinking about naming my kid Travis...boy or girl. Travis Carroll. Well, ok - maybe not if it's a girl.

The stories were so personal and animated...the slide show rocked, you played all my favorite songs and I'm so happy to know the back stories are to those songs. If i could only get in a time machine and go back and see the show again. I'd probably also take some money out of my stocks if i could go back in time as well.

Thanks Andy and Fran...this is one more musical "bookmark" in my life to add to! THE BEST SHOW EVER.

No review can do justice to the performance my wife and I attended this past Tuesday. If you asked me to design the ideal concert experience, this was it. The format, the setting -- everything was perfect save for the absence of Dougie and Neil. Fran's vocals and stories were great and Andy was rocking the lead guitar.

The highlight for me was requesting a song ("The Connection") and actually having them play it. Once they agreed to do it, the guys spent a minute or so figuring out the right capo position & chords. That's one of my all time favorite songs and it meant a lot to me that the guys played it despite some calls from a few impatient fans to move on to a different song while they were trying to remember how to start it.

I feel grateful that Fran and Andy took the time to visit us here in DC and will never forget this show. Thank you!!

This is definitely on my list of the greatest Travis shows I have ever seen. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been listening to these guys for over 10 years now since that first show at Reading- it's now 1/3 of my life listening to these songs..amazing. Man that makes me feel old.....

The slideshows were great and we would have been happy with more, the stories were amusing, and the atmosphere fantastic. I was super happy to hear “We are Monkeys”, one of my favorite songs ever. Taking requests was something you would never see at the 930 club, and having the guy in front of us request ‘the connection’ was also fantastic. Great song as well.

Thanks for also taking the time to talk, take pictures, and sign things for almost everyone at the show. I am once again impressed with the just plain great attitudes and energy-they had the same greetings at the merch table for the 100th person to walk up as they did for the first. Thank you again for this performance (I hope slideshows become a permanent fixture), and we hope to have you back in DC soon!
