Loudest band you've seen in relation to the size of the venue?

Molly Hatchet in a bar in Warner Robins GA. It was intolerably loud and the sound was poorly mixed.
I saw Molly Hatchet at a small bar in Middletown Ny during the late 80’s or early 90’s .
Holy crap my ears rang for 3 days 😞
That was worse than being a few feet from the stage at an Ac/Dc concert!

QoTSA and Wolfmother.
Both were at large venues, by those bands produced massive sounds, amazing those heavy guitars!

Leslie West and Mountain, hands down.

1976 or so, in a small civic center in Ozark, Alabama.

My ears are still ringing.

1) Swervedriver at the Metro (formerly the Cabaret Metro) in Chicago, 1994(?).
2) Magpie Salute (Rich Robinson) at The Castle Theatre in Bloomington, IL. in 2017. They had like 10 musicians on a small stage and it was so loud the music was distorted. It was not pleasant at all.

That's why I was there, the Rev!

NP didn't really impress me. They were ok but sounded like a lot of bands that are better.
I saw them supporting Motorhead turn of the millenium. I actually just found a Nashville Putty album which I didn't even know I had.

Electric Hot Tuna.

Cambridge, MA 1976.

The place was pretty big, actually. Didn’t matter.

My ears are still ringing from that.
