Some cool lists here, not gonna try to list all mine, but some of my all time favourites in no particular order include...
Jim White, small club in Manchester (UK), awesome fun, really good banter, nice chilled-out vibe, good fun.
Drive-by Truckers... small venue in Soho, amazing, 3 hour set, hard-drinking, great stories and really nice guys - on the Decoration Day tour.
Godspeed You Black Emperor, South Bank Arts Centre, wooahhh! Awesome, Sigur Ros in support, very heavy.
Sigur Ros, Union Chapel, in a church? Really cool small gig before they got big.
R.E.M. Earls Court, Up tour, I really wasn't too fussed about this, took my girlfriend at the time for her birthday and they were so damn good,
totally rocked and I hate big gigs usually.
Tool, Manchester Apollo, Lateralus tour, over-indulged, I was dancing even when they weren't playing, my mind was blown, still trying to get some of
those synapses back.
Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Abattoir Blues tour, Brixton... freeking sweet.
Too many others to mention, although there were loads of death metal gigs from my teen years, Cannibal Corpse were excellent as were Bolt Thrower,
Napalm Death and Entombed, Deicide were boring and totally blown away by the support acts.
Wish I'd gotten to see Tom Waits.
