GREAT THREAD

My choices

JImi Hendrix Experience in England just after ARE YOU EXPERIENCED came out.
Bob marley and the Wailers, when it was still the full complement of Wailers.
The Doors just after their second album came out.
The Misfits circa 1981
The Beatles playing on the rooftop

For Me: Jimi Hendrix anytime after he joined the experience
Pink Floyd w/syd barrett when they were playing the UFO
Bob Dylan when he went electric
Replacements in the 80s when bob stinson was still with them
Velvet Underground when cale was still in the group
Sonic Youth on the washing machine tour

Ditto on these for me, as well, but I would also say I'd see Sonic Youth at any point in their career, from start to present day.

I'd also add the Stones during their Mick Taylor period, 1969 to 1973.

Patti Smith circa 1975-77.

Ramones circa 1975-77.

Pixies whenever.

Television 1975-1979.

The Clash 1976-1979.

Nirvana.

Melvins.

My Bloody Valentine. (!!)

There must be more.

My earlier list was a wish list of impossibility, as I wasn't alive when the shows would have happened. So, a short second list, of bands I wish I'd seen when I had the chance:

Sisters of Mercy in 1985 (it was the day before one of my English A-levels)
Bauhaus in 1984
Sonic Youth on Brighton Beach in 1985 (I was too scared to go on my own)
High Rise

Fushitsusha are still going, or at least may have a probable relinquishing of their hiatus. I am blind hope.

I'm seconding Les Rallizes Denudes.
The Shaggs
The Monks
2nd-wave AMM
Derek Bailey
Throbbing Gristle.

Ramones at CBGB's in the 1970's

Nirvana, club show just before "Nevermind" was put out.

Faith No More "AngelDust" tour, prefferably not the Metallica/Guns N' Roses/Faith No More tour, way too big.

The Clash-Pretty much whenever

Refused

Oh almost forgot, Dead Kennedys

I think it's safe to say Jesus Lizard and MBV are two of the most missed bands ever.

Yes, that's what I meant. But there was a period in '75 where they were playing songs from both albums, that's what I meant by that.

I'm just saying that if I caught them in that in-between phase, with the raw Animals tracks, still two years away, plus Wish You Were Here, songs from Dark Side and an "Echoes" encore, it would've rocked my socks.

That is all...
