    I've got three.

    In high school (circa 1999) I saw Rage Against the Machine in Houston around the time Battle of Los Angeles came out. It was by far the most intense show I've ever been too.

    Near the end of college (circa 2003) I saw Death Cab for Cutie at a small venue in Fort Worth (Ridgele Theater) on Halloween. They ran Frankenstein meets the Werewolf on a big screen behind the stage and played a cover of Thriller.

    A couple of years ago The Get Up Kids played at the Granada in Dallas during their 10 year anniversary of Something to Write Home About... they pretty much played the whole album.

        My top 5

        -Rammstein '11. That was sick. Their stage show is insane.
        -Foo Fighters '11. Dave Grohl = awesomeness
        -Metallica in '05 - I knew 1/4 of the songs but, shit could they put on a show.
        -Garth Brooks '93. I HATE country but, kind of tolerated it back then. My sister gave me free tickets, we went and he was amazing!!
        -Audioslave - 3 bands in one awesomeness. Seriously, really, really good show. I can't remember the yr..

          9/29/89 - Shoreline Amphitheater, Mountain View, CA - Of the 100+ grateful Dead Shows I attended on tour this one was the best one I ever saw. The boys were just "on" that night.

            David Byrne live in Oxford in April 2009. I have awesome photos as a memento, as I was seated only a few rows back from the stage. I was in ecstasy throughout - it honestly felt like I'd died and gone to heaven.

              Warped Tour Dallas 2004. My best friend, boyfrined and I all punked out and saw Yellowcard, Flogging Molly, Bowling For Soup, a local band that died not long after, and a half dozen others. We stood in the rain with a rainbow of colored hairspray running down our faces and debated on getting into the Flogging Molly mosh pit.
              A close second was Brave Combo with my German Dancing team in high school.

                1) The Raconteurs in Atlanta 2011 at The Tabernacle. This is an amazing place to see a show if you ever get the chance. My husband and I drove for 10 hours to get to that show. We love Jack White and I think The Raconteurs is the best of all his collaborations. We were on the front row and made amazing friends
                2) Tool Shreveport LA (I think it was 2007,) 10,000 Days tour. Tool is just amazing live. Can't wait til they go on tour again!
                3) The concert for New York City 2001 Madison Square Garden: This concert was for the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. We went to NY for a few days, saw ground zero which heart breaking doesnt even begin to describe. The concert was amazing. There were so many bands there that night. My favorites were The Who, Elton John, David Bowie, Billy Joel and of course the night ended with one of my favorites of all time! Sir Paul McCartney! It is a night I will never forget!

                  In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

                    Don't laugh but I thought Lyle Lovett was really good. So was Journey. I'm not a big concert-goer though.

                      Lyle Lovett is awesome.

                        Oh dude! and Dear & the Headlights. My favoritest band. They closed up shop last year, but I got to see them live once. It was spectacular. The guy has such great energy. He broke most of the guitar's strings during the first song.

                              Because of my friend's RA and my boyfriend's upcoming golf tourney, we bowed out and watched the mayhem from afar.
