opening acts

Recommended Posts

So...What all bands have opened for MG(B)? I find a lot of bands I like when they are opening acts for other bands I like. But, as I've never been to an MG concert, I've never seen(or probably even heard of) any of his opening acts. Thanks for the help. ;)

I know that The Dears did for sure, they are pretty good live. And if you want to get technical, Last year (on his B-day) Matt headlined the Grand Rock Music Festival here in Manitoba so everyone that played before him that day kinda opened for him.

Opening acts in Vancouver that I have seen are:


Honeysuckle Serontina (http://www.diepopstar.com/honeysuckleserontina.php)



The Organ


The Dears


Bif Naked


Means to an End



You'll be interested to know that Dave Genn helped produce Peppersands full length album. ...And I've also just read that he also had a hand in producing Honeysuckle Serontina.


Wishing you bunnies,

That is quite a good number mercy :angry:


and why do you wish me bunnies?


Thanks :angry:

I wish you bunnies because they are cute and fluffy and make people smile. I use that as a kind of "yours truly" thing. ;)


Wishing you... well, you know,
