Not a band that gets a lot of love on TP, I know, but it was one of the most fun shows my wife and I have seen in ages. The Showbox was packed to the gills for this one, and the crowd on the floor was really stoked. It's rare to see a band that's been at it for twenty-plus years get such an excited crowd, jumping and cheering and stomping and rockin' out.
Not much in the way of theatrics, apart from Rivers donning a cape and crown during "King of the World." None of the pyro from previous Weezer shows we'd seen ... and no big light-up =w= sign or elevating drum riser. But it was a sweaty, happy crowd that exited the venue after the last encore. We spoke to a guy on the way out who'd taken his two teenage sons to the show; the guy himself had seen Weezer at Red Rocks, years ago.

Opening was a Seattle trio called Dude York. Very rockin' stuff -- a perfect fit with the headliner. They'll definitely be in my show tonight.
