Well, here we are back in sunny SoCal, returning to the Del Mar Racetrack and Fairgrounds for the 3rd time, which, as they say, is usually the charm. Our first 2 shows here were pretty epic affairs, with unbelievably huge crowds who went bananas, as well as a band going bananas too of course. We think we can go for the three-peat tonight.
As ever, anyone traveling down from LA or other points north is strongly advised to allow for some extra time to get stuck in a major traffic jam on the I-5. We start playing at 7:30 PM sharp, so allow for drive time, parking, and actually getting over tot he show (its a huge area). The horse races themselves start at 2PM and its the same low cost ticket for the whole shebang, so come early and watch horses run around, and then make your way over to the stage to rock out with us.
...post show, if your looking to continue your rock experience, the 'old man rock' band who started as a 'elderly' weezer tribute, Geezer, is playing for free nearby after the show at the racetrack. That show is at Mr. Peabody's, 136 Encinitas Blvd, in Encinitas. More info: https://www.facebook.com/events/412262095561553/?ref=22
...and heres another weezer tribute band announcement: Atlanta area El Scorcho is back after a several year hiatus, playing the 9th annual Beer and Whiskey fest in Atlanta (proceeds benefit the Atlanta Beltline Project) on Sept. 1. Info here: http://www.beerandwhiskeyfest.com/. Consider it a warm up for Weezer's Music Midtown gig on 9/21!
...In other news, the MFSL LP reissue series has continued beyond Blue and Pink, with The Green Album now available in a remastered for vinyl 180 gram pressing. There is pretty much no better way to hear this album. No prior vinyl issue comes close to this one, and its got more detail then the original CD mastering too. Also available now (but not quite shipping yet apparently) is the MFSL pressing of Make Believe, which is much much much better than the original vinyl press, and again, noticeably richer sounding than the original CD mastering too. The MFSL (and RTI) guys are the best in the business of audiophile, and you can tell when you listen to these. They are both available to order on a number of websites, including Musicdirect.
