2011/08/21 Squamish [Sḵwx̱wú7mesh], British Columbia, Canada: Loggers Sport Grounds: Live At Squamish Fest

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…

2011/08/06 Del Mar, CA: Del Mar Racetrack

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…

2011/08/05 Las Vegas, NV: Red Rock Casino

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.



Tonight weezer…

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!

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…

...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…
