Great thread, man you guys who got to experience the 70s/early80s are some lucky mofo's. Of all the stuff I saw listed if I could go back in time for one I'd see Talking Heads Stop Making Sense Tour or the Grateful Dead in their prime. Here's some of mine, in no particular order...Beck(early on), Bad Religion, David Byrne, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Ween, Pennywise...I can't think anymore two days in the ocean has corrected my brain and limited my internet attention span...used to go to see local hardcore bands as a kid, saw Hatebreed come up which was pretty cool, shows used to be crazy, definitely witnessed a couple proper riots.
Man how could I forget, The Dead in 09 and a bunch of Furthur shows(and they hold it down as far as dead tunes go IMO).

Oh, and i'm pretty sure I saw NOFX at Janus Landing (now Janus Live) but was too intoxicated to remember any of it, hope it was a good one!

I recall a giant pig floating around MSG when Pink Floyd came through, the glowing eyes on that thing.
My buddy Frankie Boom-Boom was passed out and prone behind the seats after heaving his guts out all over the open-toed shoes of several chicas from Long Island....Boom-Boom missed the entire concert.
We were going to live forever.....Great times!

The one & onliest shredmachine, oh yeah.
As for the other sea-going plywood $500,000 planks, we'd burn 'em on the beach, while toasting our good fortune, happy to be alive, hoisting a few tankards of grog & listening/laughing to chucky taylor pipe out a few of his nursery rhymes as his hero the gnome had his way with chucky buoy back in the dunes.
Ya got a good list, Seen, never saw the Dead but wish I had.
Good on ya, bruddah, that ya got waves this wknd - - finally !

phish in hampton like 13 times... (their favorite venue, at a recent show there were something like 600 felony drug arrests)
Modest Mouse at the Norva was pretty awesome
Ben Harper and Jack Johnson, Best night ever.
U2 with Louie Austin in the lawn of an Austrian castle on New year's eve 2008
Lots of great punk from the days of the boathouse... pennywise, blackflag, Social D, etc
Haven't seen much lately though, they all go past my bedtime these days
Ha, oh yeah, saw citizen cope come (this close) to ODing back stage at the norva and saw 4 security guards giving him smelling salts and pouring cold water on him not 20 minutes before the show started. Concert was awful.
