    A person can forget a lot of experiences until reminder comes along. I added Deep Purple after Kuni's post, now I need to add Moody Blues thanks to Yat.

    I've seen lots of bands; most memorable:

    -Jerry Jeff Walker stumbles onstage in only BVDs and cowboy boots, tries to sit on a bar stool for his set, falls off, passes out. Awesome show!

    -Dylan with The Band at the University of Texas.

    -Chicago opening for Hendrix.

    -Townes Van Zandt at the Sand Mountain in Houston.

    -Almond Brothers at Paolo Soleri in Santa Fe about 8 years ago. Perfect set. The Elders from the Eight Northern Pueblos got to sit with the band onstage.

    -Little Feat with Lowell George, in Austin, TX.

    -Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughn, with their band Double Trouble, every Weds. (1975?) night at Hole in the Wall, Austin.

    -The Uranium Savages and Balcones Fault at Armadillo World Headquarters, Austin.

    all the other bands were good, too.

    Memorable shows for me:
    - I've been to many They Might Be Giants concerts (will be going to another probably next month). Everyone has been a blast, but that's more because everyone there pretty much knows the words to every song. They also recorded this video at the show I saw a year and a half or so ago (I think I can make myself out in the crowd right at the end)

    The idea for the video was that everyone was to be absolutely silent and not move, and John F. would record the audience, then the band. But some jackhole yelled (minute 2:21) "You SUCK!" right at the point the clip stopped and sort of ruined it. Here's John F. of TMBG filming the above video (rewind to see his explanation and gag setup): http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=qwMKtv2ACok#t=126s

    - Lyle Lovett put on a really good show
    - I saw King Missile (of Detachable **** fame) in a dive bar in Albany, NY. After the show, the lead singer was next door getting a slice of pizza, and my buddy and I stared at him expressionlessly through the window and freaked him out so much he ran down the street.
    - Both the Achtung Baby and Zooropa shows by U2 were visually pretty cool. My girlfriend at the time pushed her way to the stage (Achtung Baby) where they walk out over a runway through the crowd and play some accoustic song, jumped up and touched Bono's foot. She also cracked a rib doing it. She was a good egg. I went to a show for their next tour, and it didn't measure up to those two.
    - Metallica was really fun and loud.
    - I fell asleep on the lawn at the outdoor theatre in Saratoga, NY during a Peter Gabriel show. I was hammered.
    - I fell asleep at a Grateful Dead show because I was bored.
