first tour! weezer show #15: Marsuggi's San Jose, CA
Jason's previous band, The Brotherhood Groove Grand Junction, was playing an outdoor party up in Gureneville, CA on the 16th and had invited Jason to bring his "new band" up to play. Weezer decided to try and fit some other shows in to make the trek north more worth it. They scored a gig at Marsuggi's, a smallish bar/live entertainment place in San Jose. They also had a gig lined up in Eureka CA, on the 15th, and then the party show on the 16th. The 14th was left up to chance.
Karl drove the band and the gear in his Bronco II with a U-Haul trailer. The only thing was there were no enclosed trailers available, so the band was forced to rent what became known as the hooptie ride, an open trailer on which they stretched a blue tarp over the gear. This made it impossible to leave the truck anywhere without bringing the gear along.
The Marsuggi's gig was a classic first out of town gig: a handful of people attending, mostly concerned with their beers and nachos. however cheering and clapping is audible on the videotape that was shot by Karl.
this show was videotaped by Karl.
