A few years ago, I caught the Counting Crows. They had the Gigolo Aunts open for them, and they were fantastic! I was so impressed that my then-boyfriend (now husband) bought a Gigolo Aunts CD for my birthday. One of their songs ("Everyone Can Fly") has the same sentiment as NF's "Wherever You Are".
Oh, and Splender (great band!) opened for our most famous local band, Verve Pipe.
