I was just talking to my work colleague about support acts, he says he never bothers to watch them as he's only there for the headline act and that 'they'll probably be shit'. Does this piss anyone else off?! The first thing I want to know about a gig (apart from when and where it is) is who's supporting. It's also a great way to check out bands you've never heard before. Do you watch the support acts, or follow my friends belief that they're probably not very good?
