Compiling My Life Story


Recommended Posts

I need some help here. I've been working hard to try to compile a list of every show I've ever gone to and I'm running into a few brick walls. If anyone has a list of shows they have gone to, shows in Toronto I probablt went to or any help, I'd really appreciate it. Here's what I have so far, but it'll always be a work in progress.

I'd also love to see if anyone else has done this, just for curiousity sake.

Thanks everyone!

i'd consider 'shows' to be something i buy a ticket for, not just paying cover. funny, i just found (last night) a pile of old ticket stubs, so i'll share them with you all. i'm sure there's more somewhere but this'll be enough for now.

these are all the stubs i found, not just music, and they're not in order cuz it's late and i'm lazy.

Northern Wish: man some of the shows on your list took me back brother. Especially that Ben Harper 10/28/99 and 10/29/99 and then MMW 10/30/99!!!! Three days I still don't think I've sobered up from.

I also remember 10/27/99 I saw Guster at the Shoe. Whooo what a kick-ass week that was huh?

Ben Folds 6/3/98 was at Lee's Palace was it not?

Dude of Life was also 11/26/98 w/BNB

I missed all those shows. aw well.

I didn't know Foxtrot Zulu came to TO. I would've gone to that.

My belief is good music is worth chronicling, no matter how much you paid for it. JSB last nite was fantastic and free but I paid $30 for Fila Brazilia and it was crap. They are both on my list though.

I have a tape of a Gov't Mule show from 08/16/97 at the Opera House, Toronto, the first time the band came to Toronto (and my first Mule show) - was the Radiohead show an afternoon thing? This isn't Shainhouse BTW, it's Karen, but the computer I'm at still logs in under his name.

I love reading these lists, but unfortunately, I don't have the time or memory to try to document it all back to 1975 (the year of my first real concert...and no it wasn't anything terribly cool like Zeppelin or Dead, but instead The Beach Boys at CNE Grandstand).

Peace [smile]

What about Jazz Is Dead (Alphonso Johnson AND Jimmy Herring were there) in early Winter 98 or was it middle/later Winter 99 at the CoZone?

Killer. Best thing I have ever seen at that bar but one of the few.

This looks like it would have been rather nice:

radiohead - aug 16 1997 opera house (free stealth show - best show ever)

Too bad I wasn't at the Opera House for the entire day if Radiohead played earlier - they weren't the support act for the Mule were they? This off mulebase.com -
