2011/07/29 Wantagh NY: Nikon Jones Beach Ampitheatre: Flaming Weezer Lips #2

...WOW folks, the show last night was right at the limits of what can be described in words. An amazing experience, lets call it for now. And tonight we do it all again but this time at Jones Beach! After yesterdays super hectic (yet kinda hilarious) soundcheck / rehearsal leading right into the showtime, today should hopefully be a bit calmer - till showtime of course, when all forms of calmness will be officially banished from the area till the last lights go down…

2011/07/25 Name That Tune Contest Winners

The results are in for the Name That Tune Contest! This contest was intended to be a humdinger, and it turned out to be more than that and a bag of chips. One could even say it was a real doozy. A real head scratcher, see? Well, even though it drove some people to the moon and back, thanks to everyone who gave it the ol' college try. Results were calculated by who got the most right, and if there were any ties, whoever sent their answers in earlier got the higher placement. We… Continue

2011/07/16 Yokohama, Japan: Nano-Mugen Festival

After the epic second show at Zepp, everyone took a much needed day of rest and frolic in Tokyo (kudos to the crew who had a half day of work to do yesterday getting the gear in place at the Festival site on the day off). Team Weezer reassembles today at Yokohama Arena to play the opening day of the 2 day Nano-Mugen Festival, with Ash, The Rentals, Asian Kung-Fu Generation, We Are Scientists, and many more, over 3 stages. At some point there will be a Nano-Mugen TV…

2011/07/14 Tokyo, Japan: Club Zepp: Memories: Pinkerton

...After an intense show yesterday, which included the first live performance of "Devotion" since the 90's, the second ever live performance of "Longtime Sunshine", The Blue Album of course and many other killer tracks, we recharged the batteries overnight - the human batteries as well as the camera batteries - and headed back over the big amazing bridge to the giant ferris wheel, which Club Zepp sits in the shadow of.

The guys had a great…

2011/07/13 Tokyo, Japan: Club Zepp: Memories: Blue Album

Team Weezer made the long journey over Siberia from Edinburgh yesterday, though it took several flights as the team got broken up into bite sized chunks and various plane delays and a missed flight really got things goofed up. But its all good in the hood now, the hood being Tokyo.

Tonight should be pretty amazing, its sold out and the peeps are peepin....

The upcoming Weezer/Flaming Lips shows at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel NJ (7/28) and Jones Beach in NYC (7/29) are going to be unique and historic for both bands, as something both bands have never tried before is going down.

The bands are setting up all their gear at once, and then blending and shaping their setlists into one massive gargantuan supersetlist. The bands will trade off setlist segments, switch off songs, share the stage and get loose and crazy… Continue

2011/07/11 Happy Birthday to Scott!

Happy Birthday to Scott Shriner! Today were flying from Scotland to Tokyo so Scott will spend his birthday on a 13 hour flight. No birthday candles allowed on a plane! But maybe he'll get a nice sleepy time as we fly - after these past 3 fun but exhausting days, he deserves it!

2011/07/10 Kinross, Scotland: T In The Park Festival

Today we play T In The Park, near Edinburgh, Scotland, the 3rd in a 3 straight trifecta of giant festival madness! Last night we had a long bus ride up from Sonisphere Festival grounds. More movies were watched, work was done, food was consumed, and finally, one by one, we succumbed to the quiet, dark bus cocoons of sleep, collapsing into recharge mode.

But now we are on site and its sunny and beautiful. With occasional hot and cold flashes and bits of…

2011/07/09 Knebworth, England, UK: Sonisphere Festival

After an overnight drive from Ireland, including a 3.5 hour ferry ride and encore screenings of "Borat" and "Pulp Fiction" right off the bus's hard drive, we made our way to Knebworth in England, there the annual Sonisphere Festival is held on its stately grounds. "The pen is mightier than the sword" said Knebworth's Edward Bulwer Lytton, who probably would have had a hard time concentrating on his…

2011/07/08 Punchestown, Ireland: Oxegen Festival

...After an eventful planes trains and automobiles type day where team weezer was divided into various units who all tried to get to Ireland in different ways and different times (with highly varying degrees of success), everyone has finally reconvened in Dublin, a city that's hard not to love. Naps were had, delicious food was eaten, work was done, and streets were wandered. From there today we took a ride out to the country, to Punchestown… Continue

2011/07/05 Travel To London, England

After the 6 hour flight from Montreal, we arrived at Heathrow and were happy to find it was sunny, not too warm, with a little breeze. Speaking of breeze, we breezed thru immigration, baggage claim, and customs, with hardly any lines or waiting aside from a random 10 minute pause in middle of the baggage claim process. Then we zoomed into central London in little vans and in 45 min we were at the hotel, only having had to fight a little spot of traffic in a city which is… Continue

2011/07/02 Saint-Éphrem-de-Beauce, Quebec, Canada: Woodstock-en-Beauce Festival

Theres a lot of Canada that they wisely designated as "the hinterlands" many years ago - or perhaps there simply arent enough Canadians to fill up all the land they have! Either way, we are deep in the Canadian hinterlands today, marveling at the natural beauty and small town good vibes. The good vibe small town in question is Saint-Georges, which is a few miles from the Woodstock-en-Beauce festival site. The whole area is about 60 miles south of Quebec City, and only about 30… Continue
