More on the Song of the Day list

I recently posted the list of the 375 or so songs that I have posted as songs of the day. As I was looking at the list, I realized that I had seen quite a few of the artists perform live. So from the song list, here are the artists that I have seen perform at some point during my life. Caveats, I saw David Byrne as a member of Talking Heads. I have not seen the Who or the Allman Brothers Band, but have seen Roger Daltrey and Gregg Allman. I did not see the Graverobbers, but saw their core member, Karl Straub. I also have included the venues that I can remember where I saw the act.
