Butthole Surfers in '01.
Oingo Boingo in '86 at the Redwood Amphitheatre in the Great America Amusement Park.
Metric, in one of the vaults in Edinburgh.
the strokes in las vegas on new year's eve 2003.
kings of leon and regina spektor were the openers.
KISS Animalize tour in Vegas. I was probably 7 or 8. I had my first taste of beer there too (bud light).
I saw Kiss in '79. .38 Special opened. Would not call that my first "cool show". I had seen a few before them anyway.
My first truly legendary show was The Jesus and Mary Chain at The World in NYC supporting Psychocandy in 1984.
