If you could go back in time just for a night, who would you see and when?
- Elliott Smith 97/98
- Radiohead also 97/98
I saw a poster for The Smiths opening for The Clash and another great band (can't remember the name). Bob Dylan going full electric. That or David Bowie...pretty much any era would be a blessing.
Edit: Oh, and Fugazi, of course.
Off the top of my head, March 26, 1971 just to watch ELP's Pictures at an Exhibition set.
Fugazi (around '85-'86)
Quicksand (around '95)
So - without exact dates.... The easy answer could be the Stones, Beatles, Woodstock, Elvis.... Grateful Dead... How about the Who? A lot of bands that are in the R&R HOF. When they were 1) Starting out 2) Huge. Dylan too.
The Clash... the Ramones... If you looked at Rolling Stones top 100 bands of all time - I would guess, ANY of those.
Tough question to answer, IMO.
Man, just about any Led Zeppelin or Zappa show.
I would love to see a Wish You Were Here era Floyd show.
id kill to go back to the prehistoric era and see some cavemen put on a good ol' fashioned Rock show
so many choices
Mitch Hedberg if we can do other disciplines
Springsteen on either the Born to Run or Darkness tours
Drive-By Truckers with Jason Isbell (missed seeing him in DBT by 11 months)
The Replacements with Bob Stinson
Sonic Youth at any point in time
Grateful Dead in early 70s
Bob Dylan with The Band (both tours, 1966 and 1974)
R.E.M. at any point in time, but especially mid-80s
Tons and tons of others too haha
Elliott Smith in '98 would be my number one choice, but I'd also like to see the Strokes at the 2 Dollar Bill show in 2002, Jawbreaker in 1994 and Television in '77.
I thought you meet TV show and I was confused.
Now that I understand the question I'm not sure.
Michael Jackson- Dangerous Tour + Man In The Mirror.
Feeder - before the death of Jon Lee...Maybe the start of Echo Park tour
Bad Religion on tour for The Empire Strikes First.
All with Chad Price, post-1995
Would love to see Fugazi around Red Medicine era. Television would be great to see but only if I could watch them progress from the beginning of their tenure at cbgbs to after Marquee Moon. The Smiths. Elliott Smith. PJ Harvey circa Rid Of Me. Lauryn Hill before the flakiness.
Led Zeppelin in the early 70s
Sublime in the early 90s
Nirvana pre huge
1980s hardcore punk shows (Black Flag, Minor Threat, etc)
Grateful Dead in the 70s
Stone Temple Pilot's MTV Acoustic
Early TBS and Brand New
Fleetwood Mac Self Titled/Rumours Era
Converge Jane Doe era
Death The Sound of Perseverance tour
Metallica with Dave Mustaine. Just for the history of it
Sonic Youth in the early 80's
I'd also go for Arctic Monkeys right before WPSIATWIN was released
whenever/wherever this show is
I think I saw a Momentary Lapse of Reason tour... I am sure I was there, though I cannot remember the drive there, the drive home, or much of hte show - cept for lasers, and a blow up pig, I think....
I would go see Thursday again last night
this show so i know what a crazy wmuc show is like
The Clash Setlist at Hammersmith Palais, London
That's pretty fucking hard to argue with, hot damn
