4/2/10 Rochester, MNOur second batch of photos from Donna the Buffalo's early April tour of several cities in the upper Midwest come from Gary Pudvan, who shares with us 6 photos of DtB playing on 4/2/10 at WhiskeyBone's Roadhouse in Rochester, MN. In addition to many of their more well-known songs such as Positive Friction, Conscious Evolution, Blue Sky, and Family Picture, the band broke out several of their less-frequently-performed tunes, include Arrows Pointing Sideways, Off to Dreamland, and Sailing. The relatively new Jeb Puryear song Tonight, Tomorrow, and Yesterday was followed by The Mill to end the set. Then just Jeb and David came out to start the encore with a duet version of Times Are Bad, followed by the complete band for Each and Every Direction and a cover of Keith Frank's You're Breaking My Heart to end the night.
