i cant get in to ben harper. i have tried mulitiple times. but i cant.
That's ok. Some love him, some hate. I've been with him since he was doing gigs at local skate shows back in the day, so my affinity for him is more nostalgiac than anything else. Although I do think he is gorgeous and I could happily watch him boil water.

Have Another Hit Of Colorado Sunshine
I have the bootleg of that Verve '98 show in SF. Wish I was there. Sigh.
These lists make me feel terrible. You've seen more shows this year bmack than i have in my entire life.

I hate this thread. Why did I even contribute? Bad me.
Hunting has been part of our society since the first Europeans came over and shot buffalo and Native Americans and whatnot.
More to come.
John I was kind of mostly kidding about the histogram thing. But wow.
My Excel workbook with:
- List of bands seen, chronologically, with setlists as comments. 328 shows plus a few more that are undated.
- Two sheets various bits of data for
- 4 different charts, attempting to (and often failing at) communicate the data
I know there were a couple shows earlier than those listed but I have no idea how to find out when. Also they're more embarrassing. And, since I'm proving myself to've had horrible taste back then: Idle Cure circa 1990 and ETW circa 1992.
And I know there are more shows that I don't remember. It's still a little hit and miss before 2001. In terms of me remembering, I mean. But also in terms of bands seen.

I can't help but feel like I am missing a few. Whatever though. Hmmm... only 40 shows in my lifetime eh? Seems like I have some catching up to do. Wow. Have I ever seen some shitty bands. But whatever. It's all good. I enjoyed them at the time.
Thanks for getting me to do this. I probably wouldn't have if I didnt have motivation, but this was all I needed.
The Minutemen in NYC (Beacon Theatre) around the time of Three Way Tie For Last I remember this show mainly becauase the girl I was seeing at the time,said she was watching me slam-dance and I didn't look like I belonged..
The JAMC at Safari Sam's in Huntington Beach,CA on their first US tour (Dec 19th 1984) I remember this because it was on my 18th birthday and they were so fucking cool.
U2 at ASU Sun Devil Stadium in 1987.This show was only 5 bucks because they were filming it for the movie (rattle & Hum).My brother brought his Nikon and took tons of pictures up close and then security caught him,but he had already given me the film.They tried to frisk me (I had it secreted away in my change pocket of my motorcycle jacket,and I took off running...)
Stevie Wonder with my son a couple days ago here in AZ.Everybody was dancing.He's the best evidence for a higher power that I know of...

How was Seether? They seem to have some decent tracks. The opening act for the Foo's acoustic was Tim Curran and I thought he was fuckin excellent. Alot better than FF.
And Justice....what else can I say? That gig was fuckin amazing...nice meeting you there.
U2: 6/28 @ United Center
P.O.D played in my town of 65,000 people this year. i think around 20,000 people showed up. It was for some chritian fest. my town used to be in genis world record book for most churches per population i think it was like 55 churches for 40,000 people. yea i live in a town full of religious conserivte buttholes who can not make up their mind on what religion they want to be.
It's funny that now that I'm in my 30's and should be 'settling down' that I get to see more shows and more bands. Never had the money or transport for most shows when I was younger.
