One of the best gigs I've ever been to has to be my first Livid festival back in the day at Davies Park. Headliners were the Beastie Boys with Helmet. In those days, it was all about heavy grunge bands and everyone adopted the "grunge" look. It was a sea of long hair, flannel shirts, cargo shorts and doc martens. But hip hop and gangsta rap was slowly gaining a wider audience. You could spot a Beasties fans a mile away with the baggy pants, sneakers and oversized singlets/t-shirt. Was so cool to see. 
When the Beasties came on they blew everyone away. I remember the whole crowd under the big top pogoing in unison. Its a shame we'll never be able to witness these guys live again. Enjoy!
