I've seen George Thoroughgood a few times, Buddy Guy 3 times. Sadly, Stevie Ray Vaughn only once.

Not a big concert goer.

Usually prefer a smaller more intimate venue.

I have seen a ton of local shows and no one here will know the bands so I'll just list national acts

 

Sloan - At least 5 times since they got back together after the One Chord album. You lose count after a while.

 

Guided By Voices - 4 times and all of them were with the original lineup that included Tobin Sprout and Mitch Mitchell. Reunion show in Chicago last year sold out before I could get tickets [cursing] . One of the greatest rock bands of the nineties. If you do not know them you need to get wise to their catalog.

 

A lot of other bands I have seen 3 times - Helmet, RATM, Wilco, Brian Jonestown Massacre, the Dandy Warhols, and Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks, ...And you will know us by the trail of dead, Spoon, Ted Leo and Pharmacists, Sonic Youth, Poster Children, etc.

I have seen The Rollings Stones every time the U.S. tour came to town-in 1964 it cost me $3 a ticket-in 2006 it cost me $179 a ticket! The 2006 tour was one of the most amazing spectacles I have ever seen-

The only bands I've seen multiple times have been small local bands

 

Once you are twenty one and have a place in the city a whole new world of shows will open up.

Dr. John--I think it's been five times now, maybe six.

 

I've seen Sonny Landreth twice, and he was great both times.

 

I've seen Galactic three times. Great band.

 

Seen Steve Adelson twice, once with Oz Noy. He's excellent.

 

I know, no big names (except for Dr. John.) I haven't seen many shows.
