Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Emo, screamo, post-punk, pop punk, alt-rock, post-hardcore, call it whatever the hell you want--attempting to keep track of the subgenrefication of moody rock bands in eyeliner is practically impossible. But we can all still agree on good music versus bad music, and The Used most definitely falls under the former.

The four-piece band, currently comprised of vocalist Bert McCracken, guitarist Quinn Allman, bassist Jeph Howard, and drummer Dan Whitesides (founding drummer Branden Steineckert migrated in 2006 to Rancid due to "creative differences"), have come a long way since their humble beginnings as a drug addicted group of guys in the Mormon town of Orem, Utah...which is enough to drive anyone to drugs, if you think about it. They recently released their fourth album Artwork to the tune of top 10 positioning on 5 different Billboard charts, and much critical acclaim.

The Used will be performing at the Buzz Bake Sale in Cruzan Ampitheater on Saturday, December 5, along with Chevelle, Matisyahu, Cage the Elephant, Panic At The Disco, Manchester Orchestra, and more. Tickets are $40 for reserved seats, $20 for lawn.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
