    I was right. Prestigious

    If you could go back in time just for a night, who would you see and when?

    My picks:
    - Elliott Smith 97/98
    - Radiohead also 97/98
  3. Anti-Counter-Culture


    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.

    No-rope barbed wire Jones

    Off the top of my head, March 26, 1971 just to watch ELP's Pictures at an Exhibition set.
  5. 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.

    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.

    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.
  17. 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
    Woodstock 69
