I got this idea from another thread, thanks robslob for the idea, I give you credit.
But it got me thinking about great shows I have seen for a bargain price.Not too many of these anymore.
--------------------------------------
Last July 2008,Soul Stew ,Scarpomatic,Fraze Pavillion front row middle of the Stage 44.00(if you call that bargain, I do becasue the show was spectacular)
---------------------------------------

I think it was 94 or 95 we saw John Mayall play a small club here in Indy during the middle of the week in February I think,? It was cold I remember. Hardly anyone there, could not have been more than 50 people and he smoked the place up.
I think the ticket was around 20.00
------------------------------------------------
Saw Mule twice in 95 and 97 at s mall club/bar here in Indy and I know tickets where not very expensive, maybe around 20.00 or less . I remember the first show in 95, the crowd was sparse to begin with, and thinned out as the night went on, but they layed it all out there.

here is that set list 10/23/95
Set: Mule > Rocking Horse > Mr. Big > Temporary Saint > Trane > Third Stone jam > St. Stephen jam > Eternity's Breath jam > Kind Of Bird, The Same Thing > Painted Silver Light > Don't Step On The Grass, Sam, Grinnin' In Your Face > Pygmy Twylyte > Blind Man In The Dark > Mother Earth, Just Got Paid > Who Do You Love? > Just Got Paid
Encore: End Of The Line > Young Man Blues > Good Morning Little School Girl > Young Man Blues.

In 97 at the same club,more people this time. I remember before the doors opened there where some issues I think with the PA. I remember seeing Warren talking to some of the house people about the PA system and it seemed a little animated, nothing bad though. The show did start late.
I was standing next to the bar before the doors went open and Warren and Woody come walking out into the bar. Woody stood right next to me for abot 10 sec's and was looking at this female sitting at a table behind me. I saw her earlier, she was hard to miss. She was dressed very scantily,not very attractive though, but had these HUGE I mean HUGE breast! His eyes got really big and kinda got this blank star on his face he looked over at me and shook his head and I just kinda nodded and shook my head. It was a look of shock more than anything,like"what the hell is that?", like he was scared. They walked out into the mall area and people started to go up to them and talk. I have never approach people of that stature and I was not going to say anything when I saw them coming over by me. They get bugged enough.

Here is that set list 3/8/97

Indianapolis, IN

Set: Grinnin' In Your Face > Mule, Temporary Saint > No Need To Suffer > Birth Of The Mule, Thorazine Shuffle, Presence Of The Lord, Thelonius Beck > St. Stephen jam
Encore: World Gone Wild, Young Man Blues > Good Morning Little School Girl > Young Man Blues
Soundcheck: No Need To Suffer

---------------------------------
Santana,Jeff Beck and Keb Mo 1995 , 10th row middle section 25.00. Thats before Carlos had his big break out again, Keb was some what new at that time. Jeff was Jeff!
----------------------------------

I think I paid 30.00 for a second row seat that I got to an ABB show in 1993 at Deer Creek here in Indy. I will have to check that one. No need to explain that show!



-----------------------------
Ozzy and Metalica Ft Wayne Memoria; Coliseum. July 1986 15.00 tix price.
That was a great place to see a show. No seats onthe floor everyone stading and packed in onthe floor. Genereal admission, you could sit anywhere. Hotter than heck that night. This was the Cliff Burton days. Metallica was loud, I do remember that. Ozzy opened up with Bark at The Moon and stopped the song about half way through and told everyone"to get the f#*k back" or he was not going to play anymore. People were getting smashed into the baracade in front of the stage and security was pulling them out.


Metallicas set list
Ecstasy of Gold (tape)
Battery
Master of Puppets
For Whom the Bell Tolls
Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
The Thing That Should Not Be
Seek & Destroy
Creeping Death
Fade to Black
Damage, Inc.

---------------------------
This July I have one comming up. Mule at Fraze Pavillion 25.00 center section 6th row.

And don't forget C Leavell and R Bramlett at the same Woodstock GA location last summer too. A rare pairing and free to boot.

I'd like to say the ABB/Panic tour seems very reasonably priced for the most part. My B'ham ticket was $60 after fees. That's a bargain.

Mule is coming to the Masquerade Music park on 7-25 in Atlanta for $30. A good deal, but a crappy outside venue during the dog days of summer. I'd pay alot more for the Tabby or Fox.

To me, both Xmas Jams I've been to have been incredible steals.

2006: Taj Mahal, NOSC, Dave Matthews, Mule (the Dave/Mule combo Cortez the Killer is still probably the single best live song I have ever seen), not to mention Branford Marsalis, Dave Schools, and a bunch of other greats. All for less than $60, I think.

2008: Ben Harper, Michael Franti (who, if you haven't seen him, you need to do yourself a favor and run to one of his shows), Coheed & Cambria, Travis Tritt (surprisingly talented), Joan Osborne, Johnny Winter, dTb, ABB, Mule, and some guy named John Paul Jones (with a bunch of others that I've left out). Friday night lasted until almost 4:30 in the morning; saturday was about an hour shorter. Very cheap for all of the acts involved.

Oh and on top of that, the money goes to Habitat for Humanity.


Besides that, I've been to a few ABB shows where tickets are only 20-25 (lawn seats that is).

I saw the Roots (not everyone's cup of tea, I know) at Duke about a year ago for free

We have a weekly summer music fest in my town at an outdoor amphitheater built along the river. Shows have been in the $6 - $8 dollar range (started at 6 but believe they were 8 last year). Some of the artists who have appeared down there are Little Feat, Gov't Mule, Honeytribe, Umphrey's McGee, Grinderswitch, Walter Trout, Marcia Ball, Tab Benoit, Savoy Brown, Sonny Landreth, etc, etc. Black Crowes are down there this year - believe that one may be $30

There is also a yearly barbeque fest that lasts 3 days and features all-day music and is free during the day and costs $5 later in the evening. Some of the entertainers there have been Buddy Guy, Cowboy Mouth, Blue Oyster Cult,Robin Rogers & Her Hot Band, Eric Sardinas, Shemekia Copeland, Spin Doctors, Johnny Lang, Hootie & Blowfish, Soul Asylum, Marcia Ball, Reverend Raven and the
Chain Smokiní Altar Boys, etc, etc.

State Fair always gets good entertainment on the free stages. Various other weekly festivals around as well as a great little blues club that books all of the bands that tour clubs around the country (most of the blues artists mentioned above, Tnsley Ellis, Lil Ed and the Blues Imperials, Jimmy Thackery, Anson Funderberg, etc, etc)

I was just looking at the Rock Gone Wild festival in Algona, Iowa for next August. 4 days of music for less than $90 if you go general admission and $365 for 4 days for VIP seats which includes food and beer for all 4 days (and seats in rows 11-30). That is a bargain! Bands include George Thorogood, Puddle of Mudd, Saxon, April Wine, Skid, Row, Great White, Candlebox, and 40 others. Check it out:

we are fortunate in the western ny area that we get some really decent free shows each summer @ a few different veues that offer them usually tuesday thru saturdays! it makes suffering through the long cold winters a little more tolarable! i've seen mule, dtb, stb, db&gs, donna the buffalo just to name a few. the lineups are just starting to roll out now & so far just one venue is offering us this summer: tinsley ellis, grandfunk railroad, railroad earth, peter frampton, the outlaws, guess who, america & a few others! been anxiously waiting to see what the other spots are going to have! i'm in the buffalo area, but also travel to rochester & syracuse (for the right bands!)which have many decent free shows as well! mule & dickey are both going to be in rochester this summer, so that's a must!

Ahhh, another Michael Franti convert. I've been telling people for years! The bang for buck quotient does not get any higher. See Michael Franti and Spearhead.

I hadn't even heard of him before Xmas Jam, but he blew me away. Warren's introduction did him justice - it was something like: "I can't even begin to tell you guys how much of a treat you're in for now..." Oh and JPJ sat in for the majority of Franti's set as well - that didn't hurt

I saw Susan Tedeschi a year ago ( I think) at Mohegan SUn Casino in CT. Free show. It rocked. She was wearing this silver reflective dress , cut above the knee. Yikes. lol
I also scammed my way into a Stevie Ray Vaughn show for free, back in 1990.
Also been seeing Mule for 15 years and Never remember paying more then 35$.
