Buy a recording of the show you just enjoyed
In this author’s humble opinion, the best and most innovative use of the USB wristband is to load them with recording’s of the same night’s performance. Soundboard technicians immediately load up the tiny devices with a recording of that night’s show, letting fans purchase a copy on their way out of the venue.

This is pretty cool:
O.A.R. USB Wristband
At select shows on The All Sides Tour, concert-goers will have the chance to bring home a live recording of that evening's show along with a copy of the band's new album, All Sides.
