The show was almost sold out (500 people) all because Know Lyfe, Beyond The Fallout & Adrenachrome brought their friends & fans. I understand you may not wanna see local bands, but smaller national touring bands like 40 Below Summer & Straight Line Stitch depend on the local openers to promote the shows & sell tickets. Without local support bands, those national bands couldn't tour.

Sorry I didn't mean to be on a soapbox. Glad you're a 40 Below fan!
Yeah I have a lot of friends in bands and they have to sell their 50 tickets to be able to play that show. I get all that it just kills me when I see grunge bands playing 28-30 songs like Chris Cornell or Pearl Jam and other bands like 40 Below and Hed PE playing 12 songs. I get it's apples and oranges but in reality for a headliner to play 60-70 minutes sucks. Especially if said band is someone on my "Must see before I die" list like 40 Below. hahaha There should be a 90 minute headliner law...
