Weezer

My brother and I went to see Weezer in Hartford, CT last night. Unfortunately, we forgot that much like the Nissan Pavilion in VA, the Comcast Theatre in Hartford has one road in. We were in traffic for quite awhile.

We missed a little of Weezer's set, but what we saw was an excellent show, we had a great time.

The band wore full bright yellow jump suits complete with reflectors. They were obviously out directing traffic prior to their set so there would be some actual people in the theater to hear them play.

Weezer's lead singer and principal songwriter, Rivers Cuomo, was very entertaining. He's quite the character. If you have a minute, check out his bio here. He's led a very interesting life, including: growing up on an ashram, graduating Phi Beta Kappa from Harvard and writing/recording over 800 songs.

One of Cuomo's most recent projects is writing a "sawng" in collaboration with YouTube users. I'm not certain, but I'm pretty sure when he's not writing or performing music he works at my accountant's office.
