El Paso's Downtown StreetFest brought the peeps, Louisiana's Better Than Ezra brought the fun, especially leading into their song "Juicy" with a touch of the Rolling Stones, and a break for an ode to the Sugar Hill Gang's classic rap, "Double Dutch Bus" in the middle!

Kevin Griffin, Joel Rundell, Tom Drummond and Cary Bonnecaze had fun with the crowd, joking about the weird stuff that was going to happen on the Summer Solstice. At one point, Griffin said he'd be taking on Fozzy lead singer Chris Jericho in a cage match out in the desert after the show.

A band with a keen nose for the party, Better Than Ezra was a great head start for headliner Three Days Grace.
