I think my favorite would be when i went to go see Senses Fail (i think Saosin was headlining) and I Am The Avalanche opened. The second they dedicated a song to Beatz i decided to buy their album. Runner ups include War Tapes and The Last Act Of Defiance.

favorite openers were Foxy Shazam, Exotic Animal Petting Zoo, and Tera Melos.
When Tera Melos opened for the Fall of Troy, I was still thinking about them even after the show was over. they completely blew FoT out of the water.

I was on tour with Abandon Kansas last year and we were with O Brother for a show in Pensacola, they were really good, reminded me of Emery a bit.

The only one that comes to mind in recent years would be Kiros. They did an excellent job being the first band to play on the Emery tour last summer. http://www.myspace.com/kiros

Wow, let's see.

The Ataris opening for MxPx ten years ago - they played at a classic skating, such good moments.

No Motiv opening for Face to Face.

MxPx opening for Face to Face.

Spring Heeled Jack opening for Unwritten Law.

The Hippos opening for The Aquabats.

Blink-182 opening for Less Than Jake.

The Academy Is... opening for Fall Out Boy.

Went to see Cartel headline a show, they ended up canceling so a band called The Rocket Summer took the stage and made me a lifelong fan.

This Day & Age opening for The Spill Canvas.

...and many many more.

Manchester Orchestra opening for Brand New and Kevin Devine in march 07 and then MewithoutYou opening for Thrice and Brand New in october that year. that was my first exposure to KD as well, but his stuff has yet to resonate with me like MO and MwY's does.

All the above. Finallyyyy giving KD a fair chance now though.

Oh and As Tall As Lions on Mute Math's most recent tour. I am so hooked on them now its not even funny.

The most recent opening band that I was blown away from was Paper Route on their tour with Copeland. Super tight live - the entire night I couldn't wait to hear them recorded.
