Holy shit, the Used?!? I was just checking out the Sixth Annual Brooklyn Country Music Festival lineup and saw your link. I like country, but I LOVE the Used. I think the name is so clever, it's like they knew where all of their records would end up (it's short for the Used Record Bin, right?) Thanks again Jamie, keep posting!

Shame they couldn't get the USED to play this year. Maybe next time! Bert McCracken is the hardest working (and hottest looking lol) man in rock n roll
