“The first one that immediately comes to mind is that I saw Neurosis , EyeHateGod, and Dead and Gone. I’m gonna say it was the late 90s. EyeHateGod, even though I don’t think they have held up as well over the years; but in that period, they were one of the greatest live bands of all time.

This was on the tail end of the Through Silver In Blood (Neurot) touring, and it was just a transcendent experience to see them live.”
