“The Best Gig I Ever Saw” is a weekly column that will see us ask a musician to chat about their favorite concert thus far. This week it’s former Sepultura man Max Cavalera, who brings his band Soulfly to the Whisky this week…

My first show is still today my favorite gig. It was Queen in Sao Paulo touring for the album The Game. One hundred thousand people were on their feet for two hours of pure Queen rock magic, my life changed that night. It was like being born again.

Soulfly plays with Incite, Prison, Captor of Sin, Pandemic Unleashed and Discarnate Motions at 6 p.m. on Sunday, September 29 at the Whisky A Go Go.
