Over 300 views on this thread I started and I'm the first one to post a reply? In any event, I added the following venue, where I saw a show this past Friday night, to my initial post:

I've probably forgotten the names of as many as I might be able to remember. Maybe I'll come back here later, when I have more time, and see how many come to mind.
