I want to say it was 95 or 96, but... Reel Big Fish and the Cherry Poppin Daddies at the Filmore in San Francisco. It was during that few months when swing bands were getting called ska bands.

...or during those few months before ska bands were getting called swing bands, in the case of CPD. That show would have been '96. Were Let's Go Bowling and/or Spring-Heeled Jack also there?
Dance Hall Crashers 2001, I believe. They rock so hard. I want to see them again!!!!
My first show was in like 92 or 93 @ The Boiler Room in New Britian Connecticut. It was Mepheskapheles, The Scofflaws, and Spring Heeled Jack. I fell in love with the music and have been obsessed ever since!
My first ska show was in 1995. It was the KUKQ Punk vs Ska fest at Party Gardens in Phoenix. Bands on the ska side were: Skankin Pickle', Kongo Shock, Dave's Big Deluxe, and, I believe, the Mudsharks.
It was one great show and the punk bands included Circle Jerks and Plinko. Ah, those were the days!
My first ska show was The Suicide Machines, Against All Authority, The Code, and Big D and The Kids Table. It is STILL probably if not one of the best, THE best show I've ever been too! It just holds so many good memories!
I remember my first ska show was when i was 13 and saw streetlight. They where pretty much the whole reason I git into ska
