    @brittanica - I'm going to beg off that question. There are too many.

    But I will definitely stand beside your ZooTV and Popmart regrets. Even though 80s U2 is my favorite incarnation of the band, Pop is probably my favorite album of theirs.

    Zappa, i wish i was old enough to have seen him....

    oh hell yeah...my parents saw him a bunch and it sounds like fucking fun. he played a halloween show every year (for a few years) in NYC, and my parents and a few aunts and uncles would go, tripping HARD on acid. every year was like a different spectacle. and they all remembered it a little differently too, haha

    @brittanica - Fugazi was actually one of the worst shows I've ever seen, but it wasn't their fault. The show was at Binghamton University, '92 or '93, full of Long Island frat boy types, and they insisted on trying to do bad moshing and stage diving to the point where Fugazi stopped the show and told the crowd to chill the fuck out.

    Also, I lost the heel off of one of my steel-toed Navy dress shoes, which were my beloved mosh pit footwear and have never gotten another pair since.

    Not recent, but forthcoming: Bumbershoot this weekend. I really have no idea who I'm going to see most of the time. I bought my tickets before the lineup was announced, and now I'm going to roam around finding new things that are awesome. Probably in the rain, if this evening's sky is any indication.

    Know what really irks me? Kids that get to the front of the stage then get upset when things get rowdy. If you're at a show where shit like that's bound to happen, you should fucking know better.
    Reminds me of the woman at the last Springsteen show who kept yelling for people to sit down.

    Oh yeah the other night i saw a friend perform as part of a performance of Guitar Trio (which i'm having trouble finding any info on) but really what it was was 7 guitar players and a my mate on bass with a drummer, and they play 1 note but in different ways and timings, it got really trippy really fast.
    AHA! some info

    Last gig I went to was Alice Cooper, it was pretty awesome. I've seen him three times now.

    I saw NIN twice earlier in the year too... once in a club, once at a festival. It was awesome both times.

    Discovered Unearth when they opened for Inflames earlier in the year... Unearth were great, Inflames not so much.

    Especially when the guy onstage is busting his ass for hours and demanding that people stand up.

    I don't know if this qualifies so much as a concert, but Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer will be in town for a reading on Halloween!

    I'm seeing NOFX and Bad Religion this Thursday.

    I have a list of all the bands I've seen live somewhere. I don't know if I should post it in here, or start a new thread, then everyone can do the same.

    It's a pretty long list. I'm sure heaps of people on here would have similiar or greater numbers though...

    Excellent! Thanks for the Gaiman tip. I am so there.

    Just saw Fuck Buttons and Zun Zun Equi.

    My reaction to this show can be summed up in two words;

    "Fuck. Yes."

    That is all.
