After a long overnight drive from New Orleans, we rolled into the ATL at about 7 AM. Some opted to scurry into the warmth and quiet of the hotel, others kept napping in their bus bunks, to wake up later already at the rather longish named Chastain Park Amphitheatre Live Nation. Soon we shall all reunite for the rock show. Opening up the show tonight is the raucous J. Roddy Walston and The Business

The gang has reformulated in Louisiana in New Orleans' French Quarter and now we are rolling over to the VooDoo Experience Festival in style. There are a ton of cool bands playing this festival over the 3 days in the weekend, but were not sure how many were going to be able to see till we get there.
The VooDoo Experience was quite an experience - perhaps inspired by the looming Halloween, or simply because of the wild energy of New Orleans, there were… Continue

Yesterday, weezer attended the mighty premiere of "Jackass 3-D" at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood. followed by a raucous afterparty across the street at the poolside lounge of the Roosevelt Hotel.

Weezer was invited not… Continue

Head on over to http://www.blackcabsessions.com
to see Rivers and Pat perform "Memories" in the infamous Black Cab.
The Black Cab Sessions are a unique thing - they put you in a cab in London and start filming. Because of the small size of the cabs, usually only 1 or 2 band members can fit and play. they dont allow rehearsals or second trys - you just belt it out, and whatever happens happens, thats what they post up!
