NSFW General: Tell Us Your Concerts

Slayer played the Connecticut Street Armory 94ish. I didnt go but talked to 3-5 people who did and said they were standing and cou;d feel the floor sway from everyone moshing.

Saw Slayer in 90, you couldnt even see the stage because of the dust cloud from everyone moshing,

Slayer shows were fun, I can imagine a Ministry show being the same.

Ministry was intense. Well, it was in the 90s (pretty much through Filth Pig).

Al Jourgenson's ... habits .... made their performances a little more erratic after that. But you never felt as alive as in a Ministry mosh pit. And you never felt as broken as the day after!

Tell that to Mike Scacia. Too soon?

After awhile, it's all borrowed time.

You're not surprised by the Scaccias or the Layne Staleys or the Scott Weilands or Rick Jameses, so much as the ones who (like Keith Richards or Al Jourgenson) that manage to keep on going.

Its so true. No ones surprised until Michael Hutchence hangs themselves with a belt from the ceiling fan.

For the record, Rick James is my boy, Buffalo born and bread. He was in a band with Neil Young out of Toronto CA, the Mina Birds (I think its spelled).

Lot to be said about the small theaters. The Showplace, the Century. the Tralf, Sheas, Town Ballroom, such intimate venues, Me and a buddy travelled to outside of Cleveland and saw Chris Cornell in a 200 seat high school aud. We pull up and I said to him I think were in the wrong place.

Is this a moon, or is it a space station?
I like tapes and radio over concerts (because tickets are more expensive and I am a cheapskate), so this list is short.

Mynah Birds. Would’ve loved to see them get BACK together for a retrospective. Imagine a medley of “Superfreak”/“Cinnamon Girl”/“Brick House”/“Heart of Gold”...

I came across this website one night Setlists | setlist.fm and just started making a list of all the shows I have seen out of curiosity. It was really cool thinking back on all of them, the memories and stories that went along with them.
Dread Zeppelin
I forgot about these guys. They were pretty popular early to mid 90s. Looks like they were active up until 2011. I get the feeling their schtick just ran its course. They remind of Hayseed Dixie.
Lots of shows listed I wish I could’ve seen...
Same there are shows I bought tickets to and just for one reason or another ended up not going. I get bad anxiety so I dont like being in crowds anymore. The two shows in the last year or two I missed and regret was Jack White and Brian Wilson and Al Jardine doing Pet Sounds. Though I heard Brian Wilson was hard to watch. I saw Van Halen 1992, and Alice In Chains opened for them for the Dirt tour, why the hell we decided to get drunk in the parking lot and not go in to see them I'll never know. We all liked them and knew who they were so I'm still kicking myself for that one.
