    Anything you lose from being honest
    You never really had to begin with.


    Sometimes it's not the song that makes you emotional it's the people and things that come to your mind when you hear it.

    Was about to post my own list, but saw the above comment about Primus and it just seems like if you're going to ask people for their lists, it's not cool to then trash bands that someone lists like that.  Fine if you don't like them, but asking for a list and then saying "Primus sucks" doesn't really make others want to put their lists up.

    Share anyway.  Any Primus fan will explain that fans chant "Primus Sucks!" as a sign of affection for the band.  Wobbie is a grouchy old bastard but he is probably interested.  ;)

    Also -- anyone that would watch both bands and say Primus was not as good as Living Colour is only hurting their own credibility.  I have seen them both and it is not any contest.  Primus blows the roof off.

    Eesh. Uh...
    1. Pearl Jam, 5/2/03 in Buffalo (Buffalo and State College in the same weekend; I've been chasing the fucking dragon ever since...)
    2. Pearl Jam, 5/10/06 in Toronto (...and I almost caught it a couple times, this one time in particular)
    3. The Who, 2006 in Toronto
    4. U2, 2011 360 tour closer in Moncton, NB
    5. U2, Innocence + Experience tour opener in Vancouver (which is one of two shows - PJ Buffalo '03 being the other - where I was so overwhelmed I had to sit down after it was over; also, this was the show where the Edge fell off the stage)
    6. The Tragically Hip, 8/12/16 in Toronto

    Those are my pantheon concerts. In addition, I've seen two that cannot be ranked:
    1. The Hip's final concert
    2. Pearl Jam, 9/9/05 in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The thought of seeing Pearl Jam in my hometown was always my ultimate rock n' roll fantasy, but not for a second did I think it'd ever come to pass. Until it did.
    Minneapolis 1998/Jones Beach I & II, Montreal, and Toronto 2000/Buffalo, State College, Toronto, Montreal, and Hershey 2003/Boston I & II 2004/Thunder Bay, Kitchener, London, Hamilton, Montreal, Ottawa, and Toronto 2005/Toronto I & II 2006/The Vic and Lollapalooza 2007/Calgary and Toronto 2009/PJ20 I & II, Toronto I & II, Ottawa, Calgary, and Edmonton 2011/London, Chicago, Spokane, Calgary, Vancouver, and Seattle 2013/Ottawa and Toronto I & II 2016/Chicago I & II 2018

    Yeah, incredible. The Radiohead Hammerstein show was the MTV Live at the 10 spot broadcast, not sure how we scored tickets for that. It was when OK computer was ascending. 
    The rage show was when Evil Empire had just come out and the show was intense and surprisingly fun. Crowd was cool as hell.
    And the Tool show was when Aenima came out. They opened the show was the beginning of H. For like 15 minutes and the anticipation of them exploding was great

    primus sucks. I saw them in support of living colour.

    placement or pavement?
    Was about to post my own list, but saw the above comment about Primus and it just seems like if you're going to ask people for their lists, it's not cool to then trash bands that someone lists like that.  Fine if you don't like them, but asking for a list and then saying "Primus sucks" doesn't really make others want to put their lists up.
    Share anyway.  Any Primus fan will explain that fans chant "Primus Sucks!" as a sign of affection for the band.  Wobbie is a grouchy old bastard but he is probably interested.  ;)

    Also -- anyone that would watch both bands and say Primus was not as good as Living Colour is only hurting their own credibility.  I have seen them both and it is not any contest.  Primus blows the roof off.
    Ok, you convinced me to post but partly because I've also seen both bands and I had to post cuz you saying Primus blows the roof off of Living Color... I had to tell you Living Color blew the roof off higher and further, although I agree Primus live is amazing!  ;)

    Oh man, how was THIS show?!?
    At The Drive In were AMAZING! They were the 2nd support act, totally blanking on who the headliner was, but we were there for the headliner, saw all of ATDI's set, were totally and completely blown away, and then watched like 2 songs of the headliner and left.  Just couldn't watch anything else after ATDI.

    I missed their reunion shows a year or 2 back, did you go to any Tempo n Groove?

    I tried for tickets but didn't get them.  This was a band I REALLY wanted to see too.  You got to see them in their prime.

    Very nice.
