The Jesus Lizard
Urge Overkill
Didjits
At the Cubby Bear, when they used to book good shows - also saw The Pixies there at their infancy, absolutely incredible.

At the Jesus Lizard-Urge Overkill-Didjits show, Didjits were on, smokin' as usual, and Rick had a nice royal purple velour smoking jacket on - some dickhead in front of the stage threw some beer on him. End of song, Rick calmly puts down his guitar, takes off his sunglasses, puts them on his amp, turns very swiftly and in one leap, lands on the dickhead and pummels his face into the floor. Really good. Security hauls the bloody dickhead to the door and throws him out, to the cheers of the crowd. I can remember this like it was yesterday. Great show.

Best lineup ever, all-time, period: ATP 2002 but I may be slightly biased.

Saw Bauhaus with Naked Raygun and Terminal Beach (Mousetrap and John Haggerty) at Space Place in like 1980, that show cracked my egg for all time. NR still had Mark Ohe on bass and I think Jon Lundin played synthesizer. Super duper fucked up show, every band was weirder and more manic than the one before.

I haven't seen many stacked shows, but one of the few ones was Converge, Some Girls, Kylesa, and Gospel at the Soap Box in Wilmington NC. Tiny room and everyone was just on. Dino Jr. & Scratch Acid in Portland was also pretty great as well as the last ATP in Melbourne (Breeders, Television, Sleep, Lightning Bolt, Rowland S. Howard tribute thing).

I had to ignore the ATPs I went to because of fairness (2002, 2004 Director's Cut). There were great things at those outings that people never even knew were there on account of so much rock of fuckery.

That's the one i cite most often when i think of 90s touring lineups that absolutely crushed anything touring today.

Also: the following March 1995, on the Marquette University campus: Poster Children, Brainiac, Unwound.
