The Used has received a lot of attention lately and not just because lead singer Bert McCracken is Kelly Osbourne's grungy ex-boyfriend. This foursome has drawn positive attention for their resemblance to such bands as Glassjaw, The Deftones, Jimmy Eat World and Finch. This rock quartet from Washington, DC came together in early 1999. After a few name changes and the addition of a lead guitarist, they settled on the name of Army of Me and began to play up and down the East Coast. Bobby Alt (S.T.U.N., Faculty X), Adam Alt (Circus Minor), and Frank Zummo (The Start) started Street Drum Corps in April of 2004. This "brotherhood of unsung and talented performers" (Las Vegas Callback Newspaper) creates a show that is "well-choreographed" (OC Weekly) and exciting to watch. SDC uses instruments such as hand drums, acoustic drum kits, buckets, kitchenware, recycled aluminum garbage cans, marching band equipment and a Moog Theremin. People from all over the world, from all walks of life, have witnessed the SDC holds a summer and fall residency at Six Flags Magic Mountain Theme Park in Los Angeles. SDC has also performed at Universal Studios Hollywood. Straylight Run performs rock music.
