2011/04/30 Dallas, TX: Edgefest at Pizza Hut Park







...The day started with an early rise in Birmingham to get to the airport and fly to Dallas. Two of our bags went missing but were retrieved from the void due to the Sherlock Holmes-like detective work of our tour manager. Pizza Hut Park is where the Dallas FC (US soccer league) play, and its a massive arena out in what you might think is the middle of nowhere, but in fact is just another corner of the impossibly huge Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. So we vanned it out… Continue

2011/04/29 Birmingham, AL: Schaeffer Eye Center Crawfish Boil Festival



...As anyone watching the news knows, much of Alabama was devastated by the recent mega tornado wave that rolled thru 2 days ago. We had no idea what to expect when this news hit right before our scheduled departures to Birmingham to play the Crawfish Boil. But word came through soon enough that the Boil was on! And so Team Weezer, band, crew and otherwise, have assembled like the Avengers in the storm ravaged state, hoping to spread some good cheer and smiles with the rock and… Continue

The idea of music as a “life saver/life changer” is something ingrained in our culture.  How many times have you heard the phrase “that song/album changed my life?” come out of someone’s mouth in your lifetime ?  Countless times, no doubt.  Recently, I’ve had the idea in my head that, after all those years of thinking that way, I may have totally had it wrong about music.



PINKERTON SAVED MY LIFE AND OTHER BULLCRAP THAT I SAID IN THE PAST

I’ve gushed about my…

2011/04/28 Hard Times Of RJ Berger Appearance

Weezer will be performing rock music in this coming Monday's (5/2) new episode of The Hard Times Of RJ Berger, playing at 10PM ET/PT on MTV. How and why did this happen you may ask? Well, as it turns out, the show's two creators are such big weezer fans they named the high school in the show Pinkerton High. Later, Rivers met them and said "Since you guys are such fans, maybe we should come on the show and play a couple songs." Next thing we knew they had written the band into the script and… Continue

Weezer Hates Oklahoma City, OK

For some reason, ever since Weezer first toured the US in 1994, not once have they played a show in Oklahoma City!

 

The closest show to OKC was in Claremore, OK in 2001.. which was a DECADE ago! Still, Claremore is 134 miles away from OKC.

 

Weezer has played in Missoula, Montana so why not Oklahoma City? We have an NBA team with the Thunder, so we do exist!

 

Once you come here, you'll get all the people that have waited 17 years and 9 albums for a…
