The Used have been going strong for over 10 years and had no problem showing their might at The Pageant in St. Louis on January 22nd, 2013 while headlining the Take Action Tour.

Under dim light, Used frontman Bert McCracken came out on stage with a cigarette in hand, walked to the edge of the stage, took a long drag and tossed the lit cig into the crowd. While I’m not praising such an action, it was indeed a pretty good indication that the show was on.

The light was very agreeable, with lots of dynamics provided with the house lighting rig and The Used’s own setup. The challenge showed itself in trying moving around the photo pit. When I snagged my photo pass at the box office I was told that there were 12 other photo passed issued as well. It wasn’t unbearable but it did make for some interesting moments.

For my first show of 2013, it was pretty rad.

Get This Fool Some Books
When I’m not getting ready for the next show I like to sit down with a good book. Help support and my reading habit through my Amazon wishlist. You can always order a print from my large archive of awesome rock shots if you need something rad on your wall.
