Getting a bottle smashed over my head at a Cracker show

Having a guy bite my ass repeatedly at a DBT show

When they started posting set-times on the website.

[OK.. exaggerating a bit and don't want to ignite that flame on this thread.  But..... set-times available beyond bugging in advance via phone a box office person who may or may not have known for sure or waiting to get there to see a small sign on the window..... was such an enhancement to the concertgoing experience and has since become as needed as carrying a phone in the pocket.]

rich_WDC, agreed.

In light of what happened in Las Vegas, I'm doing my best to think about positive thoughts about why live music is so special. I have so many favorite 9:30 memories. They're all pretty random. Some are about concerts/performances. Some are about hanging with bands and being with friends. Some are about the crazy stuff you see at concerts.

Favorite concerts: Air, Aphex Twin, Belle and Sebastian, Bob Mould, Catherine Wheel, Devo, Echo & the Bunnymen / Electrafixion, Elliott Smith, The Feelies, Fischerspooner, Foo Fighters, Gang of Four, The Hives, Iggy Pop, Jesus Lizard, Judybats, Kraftwerk, Lou Reed, Luna, Morrissey, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Paw, Peaches, Peter Hook and the Light, Pixies, PJ Harvey, The Prodigy, Queens of the Stone Age, Ride, Slowdive, Social Distortion, Soft Cell, the Verve, Wire, X, Yaz, Yo La Tengo.

Favorite backstage/backbar/hanging out moments: Chemical Brothers, Primal Scream, Interpol, Lush, Nick Cave, Bob Mould/Grant Lee-Phillips/John Doe/Kristin Hersh, Electrafixion, Echo & the Bunnymen, Best Coast/Wavves, Dismemberment Plan/Death Cab, Pop Will Eat Itself, the Charlatans, Carter USM, Oasis. Any random number of evenings hanging out with the old school 9:30 gang, many of whom aren't around anymore.

Favorite wacky moment: the two girls having a knock-down, drag-out fistfight during "Die Lie a Dog", Curve's last song. One broke the other's nose and there was ripped out hair everywhere. I split them up, and the aggressor was the one with the broken nose. She stumbled off into the night. I asked the other gal what happened and she said "I have no idea, I've never seen her before! She just attacked me and I reacted. That was my first fist fight...that's what she gets when she fucks with a girl from Philly!"

James Brown - Went with my Dad in 1999 as my college graduation present. He saw him in the 60's. Just had the best time hanging with my Dad and drinking beer and seeing one of our favorites. A really special night.
