Your first ever gig in Aberdeen?

I want to like them because they're huge Buffalo sabres fans. Unfortunately I think their music is meh.

My first gig in Aberdeen was the Goo Goo Dolls in 2006 - also Buffalo Sabres fans, also meh.

I THINK my first gig was some free thing at the beach in 1998 or so? Ocean Colour Scene played and so did Jamelia, before she had any HITS and anybody knew who she was. Does anyone else remember this or did I make it up? The only thing I can remember about it was Jamelia saying "do you want to hear my new single?" to an enthusiastic crowd, but we were at the back and everyone around us said in the same miserable monotone "no."

Because I have no real memory of that concert and to retain STREET CRED, I always claim that my first proper gig was the very cool Barenaked Ladies at the Music Hall in 2001.

First and,  to date, last time I've seen Radiohead. I was right at the front,  right in front of Thom Yorke. Great gig. 

I was at that gig.. Teenage fanclub had just released songs from northern Britain.. They have supported some incredible bands haha

First gig in Aberdeen (not ever, though), pretty sure was Mick Jones's (of The Clash fame) band (which Wiki tells me must've been Carbon/Silicon) at the Lemon Tree in late 2004, maybe 2005. Small crowd, pretty cool; though people kept calling for Clash songs, especially Train in Vain, which got irritating as it became clear they weren't going to do any Clash stuff (apparently they broke into an impromptu Clash riff during a jam-y part of one of their own tracks, which I didn't catch). The Needles opened, so that was the first band I actually saw.

Played alongside the needles with our band many a time in the 90s.. They were more 50s than the 50s at times. Cool band

That beach one would be the Radio One Roadshow 1999 - http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/12279370.Radio_One_takes_the_high_road_north/

Smiling Politely supported by Amnesia (Stuart Maxwell's first band) at the old Student Halls at Kepplestone, year 2000.

Swiftly followed by Tar, at RGU union, during freshers week (also 2000).
