Reply to "Top 5 (or so) concerts you attended"

Not a huge concert goer in my youth, but a few stand out.

Stevie Ray Vaughn and Lonnie Mack UCSD Gymnasium (1985-ish). Awesome show in small venue. We were able to get right up front for SRV. SRV's omitted many of his hits from his set and instead seemed to try to out-blues Lonnie Mack. Best show I have seen.

US Festival heavy metal day 1983 Glenn Hellen Amphitheater. headlined by Van Halen with Judas Priest, Scorpions, Motlie Crue, Ozzy and Quiet Riot. Just hangin' with about 100,000 of my closest friends.

Social Distortion Wabash Hall 1987-ish. Small venue, very high energy. I found myself in the mosh pit several times that night.

Jane's Addiction with Pixies Hollywood Palladium 1990-ish. Great performance from both bands that night.

ZZ Top San Diego Sports Arena 1979-ish> SD Sports arena is probably the worst place to see a concert. Acoustics are awful. Still, this was my first real concert as a teenager, so I have fond memories.
