    Primal Fuel
    August 27, 1985, Ramones, Ocean City, MD. Skipping the Johnny Truant-style explication of what was happening at the time, let's just say I was painfully sunburned and pleasantly surprised the Ramones were in town, and soon found that music has opiate qualities. Was a few feet in front of Dee Dee as the boys pounded vintage material.

    Other great shows: Nick Cave at Danceteria, NYC, a muggy, druggy set I stumbled onto late; Ozzy's first tour w/ Randy Rhoads, which introduced me to Motorhead as the opener; premiere of Steve Reich's New York Counterpoint at Avery Fisher Hall, 1986; Neil Young with Sonic Youth; some Sinead show after her second album in Philly, Tower Theater perhaps?, amazing lungs; classical violinist Midori playing, at all places, the Mt. Gretna Playhouse theater, out in the cool woods, tiny venue; prolly a bunch I'm forgetting.

    Worst: Bob Dylan. I love Dylan, but it started pouring rain, and there is nothing more depressing than sitting in the rain and listening to Bob Dylan. No, wose yet: the Cars. Might as well have played a CD and had little cutouts of them up there, they were like unanimated puppets.

    Edit: Dead Boys on some mid-80s reunion at the Enola Firehouse (!), about 20 people there, before Stiv died. Pure snotty goodness.

    Oh, Cori's post reminded me of a nice Helmet/Sepultura/Ministry gig in Baltimore.

    Hanson. when i was 10

    haha, but seriously, I saw Roger Daltrey perform The Who's Tommy and had a great time! I have loved Tommy since I was 8 years old, and being able to see Roger live and performing it was top notch. the tickets were my birthday present last year from my dad, I started crying I was so happy

    Ahh...
    and Sevendust at a very small bar in Pensacola right before they went big time.
    I was front row again... and there was little room to spare... if you didn't watch out you'd get hit by Lajons flying dreads.
    One of the giant bouncers stole the cherry out of my Rum and coke and dude I was with got pissed... lame-o! I dumped dude and found a better one.
    After the gig I saw Lajon with his girl out front... she was gross... a bleach and silicone barbie type... fake lips, fake boobs, a metric ton of makeup... and I was all.... WTH?

    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.
