The Hamburger Helper Rappers sound like they could be one of the most interesting opening acts ever for SA.

Re: Summer 2016 Tour Dates

They don't usually do autograph sessions but Dave's pretty accessible if you hang near the tour bus after the show. They usually have a merch table but normally with only the latest cd/vinyl. They usually have a hoodie and t shirt with "Soul Asylum" written in the the Dim Light-era font. Occasionall...

Re: 2016-05-20 - Non Comm - Philly, PA

Well the quote is a few years old, and they've since opened for SA and he's played with Dave at benefit shows, so I guess the working relationship has been to his liking. Maybe it was the just the "new band trying to shake off comparisons to veteran acts" thing. SA might be his favorite band now but...

I see he is in a band called the Melismatics, who have opened for SA.

Interesting quote:
""A lot of people say we sound like Soul Asylum," Smith said. "I actually never listened to them that much. They're probably the Minnesota band that's influenced me the least.""

What?!? I just looked up some photos on instagram and see some right-handed guitarist who actually has a young-Dan-Murphy-clone thing going on, visually. Also found this video, posted six days ago but filmed who knows when, of Dave (wearing glasses) and Justin. https://www.instagram.com/p/BFhasHxtex...

Re: Summer 2016 Tour Dates

So.. English Beat are headlining? Or if it is co-headlining, SA are still playing first? The CT show is right around the corner from me but tix are 60 bucks! That's a bit much to pay to see an opening act. I'm inclined to skip it and go to Philly where tix are 30 bucks even though I'd be spending th...
