This has been trending on Twitter. Let's see the CDC version.
 
First Concert: BTO followed by Ike and Tina Turner review
Last Concert: V I  Music fest - AJ Croce and The Ingramettes Vanessa Thomas 
Best Concert: That is a tough call, there have been so many, Beat Farmers- Prairie Oyster- one of the shows I put on, Dayglos/Driven Sheep/Barking Spiders
Worst Concert: Boz Scaggs, edit Oh Ari just reminded me about the Beach Boys, Brian Wilson actually at the last Rock the Shores- he looked dead
Funny  Bad: its close, Eric Burden and the Animals, yammering on about the summer of love, Geo Thoroughgood trying to relive 1982
Loudest Concert: Cheap Trick, Big Sugar
Seen the Most: Probably the dayglos, maybe NoMeansNo, Beat Farmers, Maria Muldar and Prairie Oyster are up there too, heck it might be Pink Steel, they seemed to get on every bill for about 5 years
Most Surprising: Trooper
Next Concert: Ringo, got tix , but I'll probably see a couple of shows before next November
Wish I Could Have Seen: Iggy Pop that time I went to van to see him but got talked out of going
 
Copy the post and fill in your answers.  that was fun... ask me again, I'll fill in totally different answers

If I may be so bold, maybe we could add a few additional categories: (Don't feel obligated to participate)

 

Best opening act before the headline act: 

Band that didn't appear to give a damn:

Best old time rockers who can still do it: 

Band/act I walked out on:

Most underrated live performer I have seen: 

My guilty pleasure (an act I shouldn't have liked, but loved): 

Unknown Band/act you think everyone should see: 

 

I'll start:

 

Best opening act before the headline act: Led Zeppelin opening for Vanilla Fudge, December 1968

Band that didn't appear to give a damn: ZZ Top in Abbotsford

Best old time rockers who can still do it: Chilliwack

Band/act I walked out on: Neil Young, somewhere around the 25th minute of an endless, nasal, droning dirge.

Most underrated live performer I have seen: Joe Bonamassa

My guilty pleasure (an act I shouldn't have liked, but loved): Great Big Sea

Unknown Band/act you think everyone should see: The Brothers Landreth, Martyn Joseph

You are an old dude like me. Saw Chilliwack at Peachfest, I think? Great Big Sea was good for 5 minutes.

Next Concert: In the mist.
Wish I Could Have Seen:  Woodstock 69 would have been a safe bet.

In '72 while in London, two buddies and I were hanging outside the entrance of the Royal Albert Hall. Just happened that Don McClean was playing and his concert was winding down, so we asked the guy at the gate if we could go in and see the last few songs. He opened the door, and we got to see and hear "Vincent" live. Now I know how many holes it takes to fill the Royal Albert Hall. London had and I'm sure still has so many venues and we made sure we went to many, and most of them were less than 5 pounds to see. The first time I saw Elton John was at the Lyceum Theatre, with Princess Margaret and Roger Moore in attendance, for a fundraiser of some kind. Went to a Deep Purple concert, very loud, but very, very good. Probably another of my very disappointing concerts was seeing the Dead live. I don't know why but it was just so boring and slow. Maybe it was one of those concerts that should have stopped after an hour, but all of their albums come across much better, to me.

Refused are an awesome band, saw them in the mid to late teens.

Their album The Shape of Punk to come is absolutely brilliant.

 

Propaghandi are legends, have all their albums and saw them a couple of times when I was in Canada.

Refused got back together after a long hiatus. 
Their most recent album ‘War Music’ is a total banger. 
And yeah, Prop is awesome. 
They are like a fine wine.  Getting better with age.

I must admit, I've never heard of any of these bands....generational thing I guess. I gravitate to classic rock which has been a huge part of my almost 75 years. Would you say the Clash got punk going? Someone else mentioned the Payola$, they were pretty good too.

They are both punk bands from the 90s. 
Not on the MTVs or MuchMusics. 
At 75, you probably wouldn’t have heard of them.  Lol!

I would not say the clash got punk going, but they were around for sure. 
The Buzzcocks, Ramones, The Damned….

They all had a big influence in the 70s.

This is excellent listen about the start of Canadian punk when you get time...

I was going to add Devo as they had the right "attitude" for being a punk band but their music was more of a blend of that and 'new wave'. (I'm referring more to their earlier stuff)
