    I’ve seen some great gigs at Glastonbury, bands coming up, small gigs in smaller venues at 2am not even scheduled anywhere. Massive attack, tricky, Amy winehouse to name a few....A list of DJs too long to mention....you had to be in it to win it....lost vagueness at 4am was a place of dreams

    Re: Great Gigs In My Life

    I've never really enjoyed festivals. And I'd always rather see a band indoors than out. I've some good gigs at the top rank and even Sophia Gardens. Saw the Ramones in Bristol. Jane's Addiction too. I saw Oasis on their first US tour at a 125 capacity venue. I've seen PJ Harvey in an even smaller room. I've seen the Brian Jonestown Massacre in the same room and I saw Fat White Family play their first ever show in the US, that was pretty memorable.
