Scott is to hair metal as Leslie is to dirty hippie.

I love this question.

1. En Vogue opened for Vanilla Ice who opened for MC Hammer. Denver circa 1991.
2. I think I didn't go to another concert until I was in college...Barenaked Ladies.
3?

I know my first show was Steve Miller Band in 9th grade (1993 yo!) at Merriweather in Columbia.

As for the other two ... I'm not sure ... probably either Bad Religion, Rancid, Tori Amos or Juliana Hatfield. Or maybe Lollapalooza '94.

my parents were super strict with their oldest child, so i didn't get to go to many concerts. i think the first one i went to was probably at the rodeo.

1. George Strait. Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo 1996
2. Probably Dave Matthews at the Woodlands Pavillion 1998?
3. Possibly Buzzfest 1998, which featured Foo Fighters, Spacehog, and Our Lady Peace. Also at the Woodlands Pavillion. I think it poured all day. Or maybe it poured during the Live concert I went to. Can't remember b/c I am old.

Loving, Touching, Squeeeeezing...I may have seen them in the Garden, too. I know I saw them twice and they were great in concert, but it was (sob) almost 30 years ago!

Really regret giving my J Geils tix to a loser I didn't want to deal with anymore. Should have kept them and gone with someone else.

John said...

My friend's band opened for 311 at an under-21 club when I was in the 9th grade. After that it was Beastie Boys followed by (sigh) The Offspring.
