Curtis Mayfield (is that right? ) Grand Place in Brussels and it was a substitue for Atez Camera !. And I was about 14 so it was bloody years ago.
But it was an absolutely awesome experience and set the standard for what I thought a muscian shoudl be.

I met a young girl whose first show was Gorilla Biscuits at CBGB when she was 4. She's nearly 7 now. When I asked her if she enjoyed it, she said "Yes, it was very nice." Hahahahaha...too cool.

I have been told my first live band was Oasis, I will never forgive my parents for that one. But we're not 100% sure as I was about 3 or so.
My mum went to gigs when she was like 7 months pregnant as well, can't remember who it was though, does that count? haha

The first gig I went to was Reading Festival, I'm not sure who I saw first, I think it was My Vitriol. Or Daphene and Celeste.
Seems so long ago.

Ash are quality! They were the second big band I saw live, supporting, as it happens... The Darkness 8)

Also, Robert Smith came on at that Placebo and sang Boys Don't Cry. I didn't know who he was.
