Want to know why it's a good idea to get out and check out the opening bands that come to town? Because you just might miss something special.

It was good to see a fairly nice early crowd Tuesday night at Jake's Backroom for the I Prevail show. Those that did make it early were witness to one chunky treat of goodness. If you were late to the show, you missed out in a big way.

Assuming We Survive delivered the goods with a tight set that put a smile on my face and a joyful ringing in my ears. This band from Inland Empire, California displayed some serious talent.

The band also helped a couple get engaged. You can check out that great moment in the video below.
