The mash-up is a little weird, but we're still stoked: Dallas' Old 97's will open for Wyclef Jean at a NHL charity shindig. The January 25 show, in Atlanta, benefits Usher's New Look Foundation. The concert kicks off the 2008 NHL All-Star Weekend, which includes the all-star game (which those not wanting to fly to the ATL can see on Versus Sunday, January 27). OK, so it's not the Super Bowl, but we're still proud of our alt-country boys. -- Chelsea Ide
