Been to plenty of shows over the years, but the most fun I ever had was at the 1995 WBRU birthday bash at The Strand in Providence. The Strand is an old theatre...cool place to see a show. The 1995 lineup was awesome with Blind Melon headlining, one of Shannon Hoon's last shows before he died. Tripping Daisy absolutely killed it that night...good times.

Not a big dead fan, but a friend of mine talked me into going to the highgate show in VT in 1995. I'm glad I did it, it was quite the experience.

I don't go to many shows, but the best I went to was in '97 when I was 14 and saw Blink 182, River Fenix, Assorted Jellybeans, and Unwritten Law. It was at a small bar when I was living in Virginia Beach.

Saw Metallica with the San Fran orchestra that was pretty sweet. Rob zombie and Maryln Manson. I usually go to all the mayhem festivals and rockfests when the come up here to Seattle. But when little Sully from godsmack calls Nikki Six a bitch during cruefest and makes him cry that's priceless.

some of my favorites over the years - none of these are in any order... just as they pop into my head. and i'm sure i'm missing a ton...

bands/live:

guttermouth
nofx
gwar
damage plan (everytime pantera came around i had to miss it for some reason - luckily i finally saw dimebag right before the end - LEGEND)
slipknot (i don't care what you think - 9 dudes on a small stage with immaculate timing is amazing)
method man / redman
cattle decapitation
dead animal mod
the natives
against all authority
toots and the maytals
some crazy skeletor karaoke shit in philly at 'the troc' or something like that? that show was amazing

djs/electronic:

joe nice
sludgebutt
wheez-ie
mala/coki
hive
dara
justin martin

i've seen a lot of good shows, but the ones above have something special about them. either the friends i went with, or the town/venue i saw them in etc

i've seen so many big acts "play it safe" in cities like LA or SF - i really like when the talent doesn't care at all, or does something weird and isn't trying to do what's comfortable. if that makes any sense...

method man is by far one of the most authoritative artists ever in terms of stage presence...

joe nice and wheez-ie are my top two djs hands down
