Weezerdoesn'tneed much of an introduction at this point.Rivers Cuomo (lead guitar/lead vocals), Patrick Wilson (drums), Brian Bell (guitar/keyboard), andScott Shriner (bass) have been rocking the same line-up since 2001. The L.A.-based band made wavesin the alternative rock world in 1994 withThe Blue Album, and they'vereleased eight other albums since.
Recently, Weezer played at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida. Openers Jeff The Brotherhood played for about a half hour before Weezer hit the stage, starting with the usual openers,"My Name Is Jonas" and "Hashpipe," which set the moodnicely.
Other featured tracks included"El Scorcho," a rare song fromPinkerton,"Surf Wax America," and "Island In The Sun," which were played back-to-back.
At one point, Rivers Cuomo threw afrisbee to the crowd (there's a fun video onlineof drummer Patrick Wilson catching a frisbee at another showand continuing to drum -check out the video on their Facebook). Rivers and Patrick also switched positions for the last two songs before the encore --Patrick sung and played guitar on "Photograph" and "Song 2 (Blur Cover)" whileRivers drummed.
The show closed with "Memories" from latest albumHurley,as well as fan favorite "Buddy Holly." In total, theyplayed 18 songs, and their live show is not to be missed if you're a fan!
