quote:Completely agree. A few months back I saw Railroad Earth open for Umphrey's McGee at Red Rocks and I would consider that a double bill.
Some openers are closer to a double bill, especially a lot of the ones listed in this thread.
Now with the interweb you can quickly listen to everything an opener has to offer,which for me lately has been nothing.
Agreed, but I think everyone at this point realizes P Groove is garbage and Brock Butler is a total junkie.
I saw PGroove like 5 or 6 years ago in Atlanta and I thought it was an awesome show but all I have ever heard about them recently has been super negative, what happened?
I always try to be there for the openers because you never know when you'll see someone who steals the show. I'd say there are more bad openers than good ones, but it's cool to discover a band that you likely never would have heard of any other way. Even if they never "make it big," if you enjoy their music that's all that matters.
