by the way, no offense to the many area bands I've seen and played shows with, I was just thinking more of the touring bands I've traveled to see, or been fortunate enough to see locally.  I have great memories of seeing, and playing shows with, many other bands, like:
the alan smithee project
mid air version
the unwanted
anarchaos
the marauders
214 spit
the chandelier swing
emmet and mary
the mad katz
the vicars (double duty, as the harlots played at the first vicars show, and then a few years later I joined the vicars as drummer #3)
endless mike and the beagle club
the one and only matt miller
apache moon
the hit and miss engines
the crew of the half moon

some bands I'd like to see yet:
trampled by turtles
dr. ralph stanley
barn owl
jbm
junip
the black keys
weird al
queens of the stone age
bonnie prince billy
metallica
beach house
hum
paul simon
dinosaur jr
godspeed you black emperor
jamey johnson
j. tillman
jethro tull (but only with Martin Barre on guitar)
shearwater
stephen malkmus & the jicks
tom waits

and lastly, bands I've been in, not counting some endeavors that never played a show:
inside kid
ohio liberation army
the harlots
famous last words
the vicars
the headaches
striped maple hollow
