The Used Calls Walmart “an Evil Corporation”

It’s safe to say that the Used are doing better than they ever have before. Currently, it’s co-headlining a U.S. and Canada tour with Taking Back Sunday, and shows are pretty much all sold out.

5. Steady Freddy at Cafe 27 in Weston 

7 p.m., Thursday, April 10, at Cafe 27, 4690 U.S. Highway 27, Weston. Visit Facebook. No cover.
