i must have read a thousand faces
Northstar, Augustana, Limbeck, Dr. Manhattan, As Tall As Lions, Ruby Coast, Wild Sweet Orange and Princeton were all opening bands i discovered by arriving early to a show. the majority of those, i probably never would have checked out otherwise.
i used to sample the bands on myspace, but now i just try really hard to be there when doors open so that i can check out all of the bands i've never heard of.
