I know you are more down with the acts on a national/international scene, but there's so much right here in our immediate area.
Big name bands for metal. Sometimes I wonder how some of these touring bands even put gas in their transportation. San Francisco is a bit far (not so immediate for me) and costly (gas/parking) for frequent hangouts, so I don't make it up there often for the local scene. I usually encounter local bands when they open up for bigger acts... I have a nice little collection going of music from them. I may check out some Cave productions soon... the price is certainly right.
Jaco died for our sins so that modern bass players could be free to play more and be heard.
