The Cure [DELUXE EDITION W/ DVD] - The Cure
Where: Bobcat Arena, Charlotte NC
Why Top 10: This band has been on my must-see-list for years. Pulled some major strings to get the night off work, made the 2 hour drive with my girlfriend and another pregnant friend (Gotta love sober-drivers). They played nearly 3 hours, and well, it was AMAZING. Robert Smith can still wail!!
Day I Forgot - Pete Yorn
Where: Multiple Venues, Minneapolis, Charlotte
When: 4 times in the last 5 years
Why Top 10: He's one of the most under-appreciated major-label musicians working today, and one of my very favorite musicians. And getting to meet him after one of the shows was pretty cool.
Rearviewmirror: Greatest Hits 1991-2003 - Pearl Jam
Rancid - Rancid
Kmfdm (Symbols) - Kmfdm
Alkaline Trio - Alkaline Trio
Where: Multiple Venues, (RIP Firefox Coffee Lounge) Minneapolis, Charlotte.
When: 7 times in the last 11 years
Why Top 10: I know their new stuff sucks, but I'm pretty sure I was the first person in my high school to own "goddammit"
Where: The Orpheum, Minneapolis, MN
When: god, 6 or 7 years ago I suppose
Why Top 10: Costello is an amazing musician and showman. He had the audience under a trance, and can still bring the rock for an old man.
Face To Face: Shoot the Moon (The Essential Collection) [DVD]... - Face to Face 2006
Where: Multiple venues, warped tours, Minneapolis, Chicago
When: 7 times between 1998 and 2005
Why Top 10: Imagine Face to Face calling Matt Skiba of opening act Alkaline Trio on stage during their encore sing vocals while they play "Bikeage" by the Decendents. It's a punk-rock wet-dream come true. And it happened at First Avenue, Minneapolis in 2000 and I was there.
Nine Inch Nails Live - And All That Could Have Been... - Nine Inch Nails
Where: Target Center, Minneapolis MN
When: Spring 2000
Why Top Ten: Because it's fucking Nine Inch Nails. And they hadn't toured since 1995. Incredible show. Incredible.
Bad Religion: 1980-85 - Bad Religion
Where: Multiple venues, festivals, Minneapolis MN, Sommerset WI, Chicago IL
When: 4 times 1999- 200?
Why Top 10: The Promise Ring opened one of their shows, which makes little to no sense, but for me it meant getting to see two of my favorite bands for one low price at one smallish music venue.
These are the most memorable for one reason or another.
