Came late to this thread, but I niceto know that raz, HE, and I have VERY similar taste in bands. Ive seen the majority of the shows you guy mentioned.
Saw Manson at the Stone Pony, Clutch and High on Fire at the Cricket Club, SOD at Maxwell's, and many, many more.
My group of concert friends and I mainly went to the city so Roseland, Webster Hall, The Academy, Hammerstein, Palladium, and Limelight were are main venues. Seeing Rollins Band at the Limelight summer of '91 was a treat. I have a bunch of stubs from all the shows. Fortunate to have seen all the bands I like at least twice in small local venues. I miss those days.
