I miss opening bands

When I go to a show to see the opening band because I am to cool for the main band, or when I go to a show and the opening band is beyond amazing and then I get to wander over to the Merch table and buy sh*t straight from them. Then I listen to them and their media page leads me to a ton of new bands from some state or part of the world I did not know had a scene. The pandemic has taken small art from my life in ways that I don't know can come back. The last 4 sets of tickets I bought have all been for shows that at the last minute were cancelled. :(

The small, interesting acts, instead of the more commercial “alt-rock” tripe, that tour in a bus instead of the old clapped out van. Loved the bands trying to do something different, those were the days.

I liked living close to the Biltmore when they booked good acts. If I didn't like the opener, I could zip home and have my own beer until showtime.
