Quoted from o-din:
Over the years I mentioned it to people many times that that was the best show I ever went to. But I was never able to find even a recording from it until now. I've watched it a few times now and it brings back some great memories of that night. It was the reason I started this thread.
Uncontrollable Urge is one of my favorite songs ever. Interestingly enough, the only time I heard it live was as a cover by ... I can't remember. It was one of those nights at Perkins Palace in the early 80's....Romeo Void, Tonio K, Josie Cotton, Naughty Sweeties...and I think Gang of Four...but I was so wasted I can't remember everything.
My best show was either The Jacksons - fronted by Michael - at the Forum in '81 or James Brown in the Venetian Room at the Fairmont Hotel in SF in '83. Some serious soul going down at those two shows.
One honorable mention was the Bus Boys at the Golden Bear in HB circa 1982. Freaking crazy fun. Saw Primus at the Berkeley Square as they were starting out, and Chris Isaak a lot at small SF clubs before he broke. Lots of bigger shows that are less memorable. Plus a lot of Dead and Jerry Garcia Band. Good times all!
