Default First Show You Went To?

I haven't really been to any shows aside from local bands no one knows about. In about a week I'll be attending my first real show with The Toasters, Voodoo Glow Skulls, and Deal's Gone Bad playing.

I'm also probably going to see Dillinger Escape Plan and Fake Problems play, although I'm not to big of a fan of Dillinger Escape plan but my friend is who will be there with me.

Edit: COme to think of it, I forgot I did see Diana Krall a few months back.

My first show was Roy Orbison with the Crickets (Buddy Holly's former band) opening, my dad took me. I can't say it had much of an impact on me as a nine year old or however old I was but looking back I'm pretty happy I got to see an early rock legend like Orbison in concert before he died.

The Offspring back in 1998 when they were supporting Americana. They were really one of my first bands and my mum knew how much I liked them so she took me to see them. It was a pretty good show, but I really didn't know any of their previous material so I was a little confused when they weren't just playing songs from Americana.

I think that the first real concert I ever went to was Blue Oyster Cult, when I was in 5th grade. It didn't really have too much of an impact on me though. I enjoyed it, but didn't think it was that amazing.

My first was the Warped Tour I think. I was in awe that I got to see bands like Nofx and Anti-Flag.

Oh ****, I went to Warped Tour my first year in middle school forgot about that. Just after the BOC concert. I think I enjoyed it a lot more.

Yes and you can see from your quote that I edited the date in my post. I thought it was the "Damaged Justice" tour w/ The Cult opening for only several dates. I can't remember now if it was summer 88 or summer 89 - or if that's even the right tour. But I know it was summer b/w 9th and 10th grade. Hm..seems like the math should be easier

Man I think my first actual show was a Buck-0-Nine show in 96'... I'd been going to local shows for a while prior to that, but that was the first show I actually bought a ticket for or wasn't playing a show with while in a local opening band.
