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)
