This is going to be hard to top as far as "punk" tours go in 2013. I will definitely be at the Portland show.

Except for the part where its already topped by Menzingers/HWM. But I mean, nothing will top that.
It's close for me. I personally like The Menzingers more than any band on those tours, but the PBC, AM! and Bad Religion is just too stacked. If La Dispute wasn't direct support I'd agree with you.I just can't get into them.

My perfect lineup would be HWM/Against Me! coheadliner with The Menzingers and Polar Bear Club opening haha. Pennywise and Lagwagon is also coming here. The Revival Tour is stacked this year as well this year. Such a good year for punk tours and it's just began. That being said I can't imagine a stacked lineup like this being topped, but I hope I'm wrong haha Gaslight could really bring some amazing bands on tour with them later this year, which could change my mind.

Yeah, that would be really awesome. (I also was a big fan of the suggestion to kick La Dispute off the Seattle date and let Broadway Calls play instead when BC scheduled a tour stop the same night =D ). But I mean, I like HWM more than AM (and really like both) and Menzingers are one of my favorite bands, so Gaslight is going to be really hard pressed to top it. (Fake Problems + Lucero would do it, but not a whole lot else)

That's fucking awesome. I'm going to the Portland Broadway Calls record release show that's 3 nights after the HWM/Menzingers show. They are one of my favorite bands, I've seen them 20 + times. Love those dudes. Gaslight just always tours with awesome bands and is one of my favorites. Gaslight/Menzingers/Fake Problems and Gaslight/Loved Ones/Frank Turner are two of my favorite concerts of all time so I have high expectations for openers. Lucero would be awesome, I was honestly hoping they would take The Menzingers out again since I think OTIP would go over really well with Gaslight fans and people seemed to really like them when opened for Gaslight in 2010.

I mean, it (the BC thing) won't actually happen. It just would've been nice. (does anyone actually like La Dispute? I'll be honest that I haven't really checked them out but that's mainly because never heard anyone rave about them)

I missed Gaslight/Menzingers/Fake Problems. It was back before I had checked out the Menzingers and back before I had developed a deeper love for Fake Problems. If it happened again I'd probably fly across the country to see it. Those guys are three of my five favorite bands at this point.

But yeah, Gaslight always picks awesome bands to tour with. Even if they don't go with an old favorite I'm sure whoever they pick next will be great. (dream tour at this point would be The Lawrence Arms... super long shot I know but I mean they are writing new stuff and they have toured in the past (I think, back when Gaslight was a little band) so its not beyond the realm of possibility)
I've checked out La Dispute. I'm sure they are good dudes and talented musicians, but the music makes me want to pull my hair out haha. I'll be chilling somewhere else during their set, it's that annoying to me :/. Hopefully you guys get a proper BC headlining record release show soon, I'm stoked on what I've heard from the new album. I've seen The Menzingers three times and they played "My Friend Chris" during that Gaslight show. I almost lost my shit when they started playing that haha. I just need to hear "Casey" live now.

Lawrence Arms would be unbelievable, I'd pay serious money to see that. I was thinking AM, but that's out of the window now. Gaslight has a few shows with the Bouncing Souls on the east coast, that would be a sick tour as well.

Eh, I saw the bouncing souls on their tour with The Menzingers last year. Really should've been the tour of the year, could've just been that I wasn't feeling great but I found their set to be honestly kinda dry. Maybe it was just an off night for them too. Greg just seemed like he was going through the motions up on stage. I adore Summer Vacation and like almost all their other stuff though, so hopefully I'll like them better next time I get to see them live.
That's pretty much the Souls at this point. I still enjoy them a lot, but they've been doing it for so long that they don't seem to be into it as much anymore. I honestly could see them slowing down real soon. That's why I was so bummed that I missed that tour. Also, Luther is awesome and I'm bummed that I missed them. I did see The Menzingers headlining tour in March, that was a fucking blast.
