The Used
The Used are one of the most successful bands to emerge over the past 6 years and have sold in excess of 3 million albums worldwide. Their debut album "THE USED" was a genre defining work that helped usher in a new time in music that touches legions of fans. Their second album "IN LOVE AND DEATH" continued to expand their fanbase worldwide. The band's third album "LIES FOR THE LIARS" debuted in the Top 5 in over seven countries throughout the World in May 2007. The Used headlined the inaugural Taste of Chaos Tour in 2005 and returned in 2007 to headline the tour that has become a phenomenon across the globe. The Used have performed to over 5 Million people at over 1000 shows in the past 6 years. They have performed in over 30 countries and have headlined arenas all over the globe. They have achieved Gold or Platinum status in over 6 countries. Their next release is an iTunes only release of B Sides and Rarities entitled “Shallow Believer.”

Straylight Run
Do John and Michelle Nolan think too much? Straylight Run’s sibling frontpeople – both sing, write, and play guitar and piano, ably enabled in their musical ruminations by bassist Shaun Cooper and drummer Will Noon – don’t seem like eggheads; but there’s no doubting the intelligent design of their gloriously adventurous off-kilter pop and the existential underpinnings of their lyrics. And yet, there’s nothing pretentious here; despite their emergence as songwriters to watch, John and Michelle are just a couple of kids from suburban Baldwin, Long Island. John did take guitar lessons for a time, but neither has received any real formal training. John and Shaun’s reputation from Taking Back Sunday, coupled with considerable buzz generated by demos Straylight had posted online, resulted in a sold-out hometown crowd of 600 for their first performance – Michelle’s first show ever. In 2004 the band released Straylight Run. First single “Existentialism on Prom Night” made inroads at Modern Rock radio, and the following year SR issued the EP “Prepare to Be Wrong.” Word of mouth, frequent touring and glowing reviews pushed combined sales to more than 200,000.
More and more, Straylight Run is defined not only by its creative fearlessness, but by the interplay of John and Michelle’s voices; Michelle’s counter-melodies lend “The Needles The Space” considerable depth and texture (gorgeous string arrangements, among other instrumental flourishes, don’t hurt either).

Army of Me
We wanted a record that would communicate with everyone, not just one group
of people or another. No matter when a band breaks on to the national scene there is always some history. For most of the real bands there are years spent in obscurity working their butts off. Army of Me have been a band for seven years, they broke onto the national scene last year, and they are still working their butts off. Coming out of DC’s music scene Army of Me wrote songs that you would want to hear seven years from now. Rock songs that spoke about loyalty, commitment and mistakes. Rock songs that needed to be played live on stages as big as possible. So after Army of Me was played on MTV, featured on MySpace, their music played on many of the biggest modern rock stations in the country Vince, Brad and Dennis see things changing. The biggest change so far...the stages are getting bigger.

Street Drum Corps
Known for their high-energy percussion shows which Kevin Lyman (founder of the Vans Warped Tour) calls a “Punk Rock Stomp,” Street Drum Corps bring an unparalleled dynamic element to the evening’s event. Bobby Alt, Adam Alt, and Frank Zummo formed Street Drum Corps in Los Angeles during 2004. They use found and traditional instruments. SDC has been touring the world the past four years. Tour highlights include: Vans Warped Tour, SXSW, Coachella, Matisyahu, Australian Tour, MTV $2 Bill Tour with 30 Seconds To Mars, Six Flags Magic Mountain, The Used, Guitar Center Drum Off and Taste Of Chaos. SDC recently was inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame’s “Warped Tour Exhibit.” They also performed on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” Fuse TV.
