Primus was my second pick but Gogol Bordello was just unbelievable.
You'd have been 3 or 4 at the time of the show, so I don't know if you'd have enjoyed it!
I'd heard only a couple of Primus songs before the show and I was concerned that Rush might be too old and not able to really rock. Wow--what a surprise on both counts. Primus played and they were just unbelievably GOOD (musically and in showmanship) and I remember thinking that there was no way Rush could be half as good--and then Rush came out and were somehow even better than Primus, partly because they played for 90 minutes versus Primus's 30 or so, but also because of the tightness and chemistry from a lifetime of playing together.
I've seen several other good shows (Springsteen, the Grateful Dead, Southern Culture on the Skids...) but that one was easily the best.
