Today Team Weezer reconnoiters for a show way out in the desert zone of SoCal, not too far from the mighty polo grounds of Coachella. The Fantasy Springs Resort is an oasis of pools, food and entertainment in an otherwise dusty, thunderstormy 113 degree landscape of desert and highway, and the Fantasy Springs Event Center is the place to be today to catch the Weez...…

Another sleepy early morning after a show, another run to the airport to make a flight. Today, we flew from Calgary to Vancouver, B.C., and then got in vans for a 90 minute drive through Vancouver and up the stunningly beautiful coast to the mountain town of Squamish (spelled Sḵwx̱wú7mesh in, er, Squamish). Up here nestled in between towering wooded mountains with snow caps and waterways is the second annual…Continue
This morning we flew from Seattle to the fine city of Calgary, up in Alberta Canada, to play the Calgary X-Fest. Also on the bill are Social Distortion and Jane's Addiction, so today is a real power packed show. Adding to the power today is a wrestling ring complete with costumed wrestlers…Continue
Team Weezer is back together again, this time in the great Northwest, at the WaMu Theater, next door to the Quest Stadium, home of the Seahawks. Actually they seem closely connected, as there are Seahawks things all over the place backstage. Tonight weezer is doing a rare show, the Double Memories show of Blue plus Pinkerton in one night. All kinds of special guests are attending tonight, friends and family who are rarely in the same place at the same time. Its…Continue
Today we return to the Del Mar Racetrack, a year older, a year wiser, a year more laser-like in rock precision! The Racetrack setup is an unusual one, where bands play once the horses have stopped racing for the day, in an environment that resembles a county fair, only surrounded by a mile long oval of equestrian glory.
Last year everyone reported massive traffic issues on the I-5, so allow plenty of time to get down there if you are going - Weezer is…
After a fast flight up on a shiny and tiny little jet, we stepped into the 103 degree heat of Vegas and said, "yeah... but its a dry heat!" and jumped in the car. Fifteen minutes later we were at the Red Rock Hotel Resort and Casino, which is off the beaten path of the Vegas strip, up where the natural beauty of the desert resumes. Except on the casino floor where its pretty much a casino through and through, complete with a tasty buffet.
Team Weezer has re-assembled back in its homeland of SoCal for the first time since last November, for a good old fashioned outdoor rock extravaganza at the Pacific Amphitheater, which is located on the Orange County fairgrounds. Of course the OC Fair itself is going strong right now, so it will be a full on cotton candy, sideshow, corn dog, Ferris wheel vibe tonight!
Photos later - are you going? Did you…
