Yep! I also saw The Ramones at the end of their run. Jamiroquai still better!

Holy shit @Parker so jealous you saw the Ramones. Was it at lollapalooza?

I’m only really familiar with their debut and rocket to Russia. This has been my anthem the last few days

I can't believe I never saw Prince live.
A quick five off the top of my head.

Meat Puppets at Berkely Square 1986
World Saxophone Quartet in San Francisco (forgot the name of the venue, but I saw The Cramps at the same place around this time in a show that goes on the honorable mentions) around 1990
Pixies at the Kaiser 1989
Jeff Buckley at the Main Bar in Dallas in 1994
Daft Punk coachella 2006

Was Hemphill still with the World Sax Quartet then?

Love this album of his

Yes he was. I have a funny memory of a friend telling me a story of smoking weed from his corncob pipe with Julius Hemphill outside a show they were about to play in Portland.

It was kinda nuts. I saw them at this club called Fender's in Long Beach. Crazy loud and the entire place was moshing. I was a nerdy college kid, glued to the back wall. I think it was 1987, geezus. I had their first 3 or 4 albums on cassette which I played over and over. Rocket to Russia and End of The Century. oy, I'm old. ; )

For when you ask someone out, find ten dollars, win the last level, remember your password, sign that peace accord, hit the jackpot, beat the rap...

Taken from a cafe in Atlanta. Poor quality but still good stuff.
This is a pretty cool NYT interactive thing on the B-52s first album -- influences, etc:


Still one of the best LP covers ever

Edit: adding another performance of Dance This Mess Around. That b&w one you posted is so great.
