    Most opening bands are local bands that need to fill a time slot for the headlining band. So, most local bands are last minute calls or set up by the venue when they don't know anyone.

    I've run into quite a few opening bands that I really liked... one being "Rainmarket (www.purevolume.com/rainmarket) and the other being The Seasons (no website for them right now... but they won't a tribute song for Tech and I saw them perform it and met the guys that are in the band. One of my friends might help them record the song as well.)

    Most local openers are horrific in Atlanta.

    Some opening bands I've caught, like scar symmetry and goatwhore, have been great though
