Marc Ribot concerts I have attended from 1987 to 2022

The first time I heard Marc Ribot live was with Tom Waits at the Warfield Theater in San Francisco in 1987, on the "Franks Wild Years" tour, with Ralph Carney, Greg Cohen, and Michael Blair. Blair was also on drums the second time I heard Ribot live, on Elvis Costello's "Spike" tour in Philadelphia in 1989. Since then, I've seen him in two solo shows, three shows with John Zorn's Masada Chamber Ensemble (as well as another playing Zorn compositions with a metal-jazz trio), and three with his own bands: Shrek in Berlin in 1992; a jazz trio in Basel in 2010; and last night's show in Basel with Ceramic Dog.
