2012/06/10 Show Day: Cedar Rapids, IA: Downtown: Rockin The Rapids

Today weezer played a outdoor festival in downtown Cedar Rapids, the Rockin The Rapids Music Festival. We followed several other bands including Tonic, Fuel, Filter and Chevelle (they seemed to have a muscle car theme going on today, up till when weezer took the stage). It was a hot and windy day with the streets blocked off, lotsa port a potties in rows, barbeque huts, tents, folding chairs, drunk people getting rowdy, a PTSD meltdown or two, and a generally disorganized and unruly feel…

2012/06/09 Show Day: Dallas, TX: Cotton Bowl: H20 Festival

Today Team Weezer converged on Dallas' venerable Cotton Bowl, to perform in the Univision H20 festival.

Today's line up is an interesting mix of artists. The intention of the people putting on the festival was to alternate between English and Spanish speaking artists, though how Tiesto fits into that, we're not exactly sure. But it will be fun going on right after the always excellent Snoop Doggy Dogg. Other artists today include Yelawolf, Prince Royce, Duelo, Paulina Rubio, Gym…

2012/06/01 Show Day: Atlantic City, NJ: Borgata Events Center

Its day 2 of what was supposed to be a 3 day power weez show weekend, but now its the final day of the run, as the HockeyFest cancellation hath dampened our Canadian Rock dreams. But the crowd here in the AC is ready to rock in classic New Jersey style, at our old stomping grounds the Borgata. So, we focus on the Now, because now is when we are! Cruise mates Sleeper Agent have taken the stage and are delivering their saucy rock payload right now, while the weezer men assemble and warm it up…

2012/05/31 Show Day: Uncasville, CT: Mohegan Sun Arena

Well here we are! Team Weezer has reassembled in Eastern Connecticut at the rather gigantic and somewhat extravagantly appointed Mohegan Sun Casino for a night of rock - AND roll. Tonight is the first weezer show since the Cruise back in January (was it really over 4 months ago already? how is that?), and theres some changes to note, mainly that Josh Freese is not with us on drum duties. Thats right, weezer is back to a 4 piece this summer. Rehearsals in the old-is-new-again format went…

2012/05/30 HockeyFest Cancelled

Folks, we are sad to learn that The Hockeyfest music festival scheduled for June 1-3 in Brantford, Ontario has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances that are out of Weezer’s control. Refunds are available at point of purchase. The Festival is supposedly/apparently being rescheduled at some point but its impossible to predict what will happen down the line, so all we can say is we're just as disappointed as you today.

2012/01/18 The Island Of The Day Before The Weezer Cruise

Well, what was once just an idea so crazy it just might work, now looms overhead, in the form of the Carnival Destiny cruise ship, home of the Weezer Cruise that launches tomorrow out of Miami Florida! Tomorrow? Yes indeed. Somehow the months of anticipation and preparation have finally ended, and its time to get on the boat and do the dang thing.

Unless youve been living on the Moon recently (and if you have, how was it?), you have…
