2011/05/24 Various & Sundry, A Post-Rapture Roundup

...Now that that pesky Rapture is out of the way, coming up next: Atlantic City at the Borgata, The Hartford BOMBfest, and Pittsburgh at Stage AE. Pittsburgh people - we havent been through that neck of the woods in a long time, and I hear tell there are still some tickets available - nows your chance for a hometown Weezer show, hope to see you there! Tickets here.

...Name That Tune contest update: since the hints were added, we've had a new pile of entries, and some of them look pretty good! We are getting closer to having a winner list assembled, so stay tuned. And if you haven't tried, there's still time to get your submissions in! (see this 5/22 post for the details). 

...As hinted at in the name that Tune contest rules, some of the recent historic shows from the Memories Tour will be available pretty soon as official CD bootlegs. We'll have a proper announcement with ordering info and details up asap.

...A little update on the forthcoming Pinkerton Diaries/Alone 3 deluxe package - some changes to the book were made which pushed back the production schedule till sometime this summer. We'll have specific info including pre-ordering details asap. Its going to be an amazing book and cd!

...From Wade O., a hilarious accounting of the lengths some crazy fans went last year to try and get a "Hurley" CD before it was released.

...Heres a slideshow of pix from the DC United soccer team. Rivers and Pat met some of the team before the DC101 Chili Cookoff show at RFK Stadium on Saturday 5/21, and they gave the guys DC United jerseys. (More pix from DC to come here on weezer.com).

...REMINDER: neat virtual and real weezer stickers available via using Weezer's new GetGlue app! Details here.

...REMINDER: Radio Weezer is looking for your weezer covers - submit them and they could get added to the rotation! If you have a song that you’d like to submit, send an MP3 along with your name and hometown to RadioWeezer (at) gmail.com

...REMINDER: Weezer covers The Cars' classic song "You Might Think" in the upcoming "Cars 2" movie, and the song is heard int he new trailer launched last week. Because Cars frontman Ric Ocasek produced weezer's Blue and Green records and because the band are huge fans of the Cars, they were very into the idea of covering the song.

...weezer tribute band alert!
=PINKERTON= is playing a free show this Saturday, May 28, 9:30 to Midnight, at Outlaws Grill and Saloon - 2167 Pickwick Drive, Camarillo, CA

Please oh please let the SF Memories Tour shows be available on CD.

Just read the above article regarding the attempts to get the "Hurley" CD before it was released. That is just crazy. I can hardly believe that people would go to such lengths rather than just wait for something to be officially released. Thanks for posting that Karl.
