What has happened to make everyone say next year is gonna happen?
A Sturgill Simpson and PJ collab would be fucken sick.
. And in response to the claim that it exposes us to new music, I'd just say that (for me) In 25+ years of going to concerts, I could probably count the number of bands I've "discovered" for the first time as a result of being openers.
I’d rather have the opening band play outside the venue while ten club people wait in line... the festival atmosphere for Missoula 18 was awesome. Of course that was a special occasion but I could see that being a positive way to spend time and raise awareness for various issues.
