I'll give it a try. Lollapalooza 1991, Dallas: coming together of generation x. All the high school subcultures of the 80's: hippie, punk, metalhead, hip hop all came together. Jane's Addiction, Siousie and the Banshees, Living Colour, Violent Femmes, Ice T w/Body Count, Butthole Surfers, Henry Rollins Band. Never been to a show as profound. King Crimson Thrak tour, Houston 1995. Heavy, loud, mindblowing. Made up for awful crowd. David Gilmour April 2007, Chicago. With Rick Wright. Very Intimate, loved the 30 mintue Echoes. Roger Waters Sept 2007, NYC. With Nick Mason (which means I saw all of Pink Floyd in 2007). Great sound and visuals. George Clinton and P-Funk Allstars, Houston 1997. With Bootsy Collins Band. Best show I could've asked for, very heavy, psychedelic set in the beginning, then picked up and got funky. Prince, Houston 1989. Lovesexy tour. He hadn't been around since Purple Rain. Great way to celebrate my high school graduation. Pink Floyd, Houston/Dallas 1994. Division Bell tour, even tho I would've preferred them with Waters, they were one of the few bands that could pull off a show in a stadium. quad sound was amazing, amazing lighting effects. Santana, Houston 1994. Lots of tshirts from the above mentioned show. Was blown away by the jamming, including Miles Davis' Sketches of Spain.

Deadheads have great taste in music, as I checked out all five pages! John Prine was awesome, I also liked George Thorogood, The Allmans, Rat Dog, Pink Floyd, Black Crowes.

... did a decent concert earlier this year (though, admittedly, I would've preferred to have seen Gilmour.) The Cure, not so good. No keyboards. Hoping Neil comes down for his Chrome Dreams II tour.

8/17/65John for sure brought his ax to the rink this night I'm here to tell ya. Tour heads packing the rink, having straggled up from the previous show at Shea Stadium in New York, were lacking in sleep but not enthusiasm. The first power chords to 'Twist and Shout' signaled to all that this was gonna be one of THOSE nights. The jamming was intense; the transitions from song to song seamless. The boys were really listening to one another; I'll never forget Paul's bass solo during the jam in the middle of 'Act Naturally.' Ringo's ability to turn on a dime as the band ranged from melodic rock 'n roll to the dissonant outer reaches of deep space had me stoked. I basically never stopped twirling. And then George looked right at me during 'Dizzy Miss Lizzie.' The show closing 'I'm Down' was exhilarating. We headed out into the parking lot exhausted, not entirely sure how we'd make it to Atlanta for the next night's show. But we knew we had just heard something we wouldn't soon forget.

Just caught Bromberg in Pittsburgh--great show, great musicianship, great audience--well worth the ticket price if you like roots/folk rock. He is a great showman and the shows are just plain fun.

Tomato Can is a four-piece blues/jazz band featuring 17-year-old guitarist Pat Kane (who's shared the stage with such acts as Johnny Neel and Derek Trucks), keyboardist Mark Bader, and Bassist Jon Pelkey, as well as recently added fourth member, drummer Bill Gardiner. The band's eclectic sound is a mixture of its influences, which include not only blues greats such as Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters, but also John Coltrane, the Band, and Tom Waits Check um out ! :)

Hands down the best show of this year, and perhaps the best show I've ever seen period. Definitely an Instant Classic: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Robert Cray, Buddy Guy, BB King, Steve Winwood w/ EC for Traffic reunion, Willie Nelson, Robbie Robertson, Jimmie Vaughn, Hubert Sumlin, and John Mayer just to name a few. What an extraordinary day!

3. Springsteen's first European gig at the Hammersmith Odeon, London, Nov. 18, 1975. Now available on dvd for everyone to enjoy. 2. The Dead and Capt. Beefheart at Bickershaw, England, May 6-7, 1972. A night and day when music transcended the elements. http://www.ukrockfestivals.com/dead.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bickershaw_Festival 1. Little Feat - Jan. 19, 1975 Rainbow Theatre, London. Their only show in London on the Warner Bros. tour that also featured the likes of Orleans and Tower of Power, with The Doobies as headliners at every show. Clearly, no one at Warner Bros. realized that there was a substantial and fanatical cult following for the Feat, and heads subsequently rolled as a result of this major fuck up. The sold out Rainbow turned out to be packed for at least 90% by us Feat freaks - the band never knew what hit them as they stepped out to open for the Doobies. It was an utterly magical vibe, the hall was packed for the opening act, the audience immediately sang along with every song, stayed on its feet and went apeshit after every number, eventually forcing the house lights back down for a third encore. The experience, and the climax - an acoustic Willin' by Lowell - were so intense that people were moved to tears and started leaving by the droves once the Doobies started up, simply because we were utterly drained and because nothing they could do could approach what we had just experienced - a sort of collective mass orgasm.

Dark Star Orchestra plays complete Dead shows in the stile the Dead played them. You don't which show they are playing in advance, but if the play a 91 show it will sound like 91 Dead, a 77 show will sound like 77 Dead. They usually play a second encore with songs not from that show. They sound almost exactly like the Dead, it’s spooky.

at the old Ritz (4th/11th) in NYC in '81. A capacity 2500 dance hall.Saw them again in '92 at Yankee Stadium, capacity 68,000. Hardly seemed the same band. Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

Dark Star Orchestra, and before that, Phil & Friends this past Fall was amazing! I downloaded the show, and I swear, when I think about the show, I'm STILL buzzing from it. It was THAT GOOD ! I still listen to it pretty regularly. Btw, there are some free downloads from the NY shows from the board on Phils site, just in case you didn't know.

Last night.Hours and hours of dancing. What fun. See them if you can. Jamming Electric Bluegrass - wait that sounds like another band I used to go see. Lots of heads there. I wore my Phil t shirt and well all sorts of folks came over and talked to me and say hi. "Strangers stopping strangers just to shake their hand". It still happens. I'm still buzzed from the show.

They are a bluegrass jam band I saw last night. Did a wonderful version of Jack Straw and really got in the zone on some other tunes. The guitar and mandolin players were astonishing when they cooked. If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. William Blake

They are from Michigan and did a whirlwind tour of the west. I think almost everyone there had been gifted a free ticket. The venue gave out many. Met hey bob and Chief Book Dog from here and their partners at the show. Greensky Bluegrass has shows on archive.net and a Website. I am on my 3rd or 4th childhold with all the joy from the jam bands that are around now and yes so much of it goes back to GOGD.

Pink Floyd - 1973 - International Amphitheater, Chicago, IL. They were scary. Careful With That Axe Eugene floored the place, it just scared everybody to death. Dark Side of the Moon with quad speakers, there was sound coming from all four corners. A giant mirror ball, too. I was just a puppy, this show left an indelible impression on my young mind. I saw them a few times after that while Waters was still with them, but nothing else came close to this show. Robert Hunter, Mississippi Nights, St. Louis, MO. Late 1979 or early 1980. It was twenty below outside, and very warm inside. Not very many people, it was like a private show. We all got very drunk. I remember stumbling up to Hunter and telling him that he is a "true troubadour" or something like that. I was trashed, but he was gracious, said thanks, and shook my hand. I remember the FOTD was real sweet. The Dead Kennedys, COD's, Chicago, early to mid 1980's. My friend wore a shirt that said "Old Wave." This was the first time that I saw stage diving. This show was like a buzzsaw attack, not really our kind of music, but it was like being at some crazy European soccer game or something like that, except everybody would apologize if they ran into you in the melee. Good sweaty fun. Jello kept ranting on and on between songs while the guitar player filled the air with power chords.

The GR(OO)TUD Golden Performance award for 2008 goes to (drum roll, please)... Dark Star Orchestra's Thursday night's festival opening show. INCREDIBLE show that included the best version of "Alligator" I've ever heard. The "Bone Bruising" performance award went to My Morning Jacket for their 4 + hour set that included a collaboration with Metallica's Kirk Hammett and a show long rain that varied between downpour and lite drizzle. The "Heart of Gold, Super Hero" award went to Robert Randolph for, not only a great Sunday (early afternoon) show, complete with a collaboration from T-Bone Burnett, but also his very special critique of Kayne West's "situation" and subsequent "Glow in the Dark" show, which yanked the plug on Phil's late night show that was shaping up to be an epic performance, under near perfect weather conditions, at a mere 3 am. Oh well, I was in Heaven up to that point. Pearle Jam was awesome as well Metallica, Chris Rock, The Raconteurs, B.B. King, Jack Johnson. And Widespread Panic's closing performance was the best since The Dead closed in 2003 and included Robert Randolph for two songs, in the second set (Soul Machine was off the hook) that were incredible. Wow, it was an awesome festival and I'm home now dealing with the "back to reality" blues but thought I'd stop in with a quick report. Thanks to the grate company I had all weekend, including my son, Evan. Take care everyone! "You know what the trouble about real life is? There's no danger music."
