    Fvck yeah. I'm with you on that one, I'd love to see them play some dive bar or something, not so much for a bigger venue. I'll probably go see them either way though, If I get a chance.

    Yeah? What was it about the show that didn't do it for you? I like their studio stuff quite a bit, never seen them live though.

    i didn't know 'em all that well, but if i recall it was just a loud, boring sound. i'm not the keenest on Cornell's vocals, either.

    I bet Neil was awesome though.

    Not a soundgarden fan myself.

    Never seen him live either, but I love his 1971 Massey Hall live album.


    Just bought tickets to see Bad Religion with the GF. Wish it was 20 years ago for that one, but I do like their recent material pretty well.

    Neil has always put on a great show. i think i've seen him the most out of any performer, a dozen or so times.

    when sonic youth was opening for neil young on their stop in DC in the 90's.....on the same night....

    henry rollins spoken word at d.c. space

    charlatans uk at the bayou....

    i saw the charlatans because i figured i would always be able to see rollins/sy/ny anytime.

    the first time i saw soundgarden was the best....about 75-100 people....being generous with that estimate...at the 9:30 club...when ultra mega ok came out...kim and chris wandering around the club before hand handing out promo sh*t....sylvia juncosa opening.....

    The 9:30 Club is on my list of youtube searches - a lot of good material there.







    DHGirlie admitted to touching herself over this one...





    Performances like this are not coming back - I would not pay to see a reunion.

    I caught Neil on the Horde tour back in oh 93 - 94ish. Great show. :thumb:

    As an aside I just saw Flogging Molly on new years day at the house of blues in Anaslime. Fantastic show.

    I saw them on Lalapalooza 80 years ago. They were pretty good. Janes Addiction tore the place up after them though....

    I still can't figure that one out either. All I can figure is that kids today suck.
