From my days growing up outside Philadelphia... a local band called the Hooters fronted for a lot of national bands and for a while, the conversation went a bit like this...
"You going to see the Hooters this weekend?"
"Who are they opening for?
"Dunno. You going?"
"Dunno. Saw them a couple of weeks ago."
"Were they good?"
"Who came after?"
Then, after a while, when others started opening for them, they seemed to lose their hunger to play for a small enthusiastic audience.
Otherwise... I remember seeing the Bus Boys open for someone at a concert at a university. I went to see the main act, and have long forgotten who that was, but have never forgotten how good the Bus Boys were...
