...Sunny, warm, crisp, clean, some caffeine: Minneapolis / St. Paul. We're heading down to The Basilica Block Party shortly. More later...
...Hey, our bassman Scott Shriner is on Twitter now, follow his random ranting and raving here: http://twitter.com/SGS711
Todays weezer show took place on the first of the two days of the Basilica Block Party, which was held in downtown Minneapolis right next to the freeway on a blocked off section of roads and dusty vacant lots, across the highway from the domed basilica that it was held in support of. A ton of people came out on this fine day to rock out strong. Its been a good while since we've been in Minneapolis, and the people seemed really primed to get some weezer in their systems. A glorious mutual freakout! Its always a plus when the energy on stage and in the crowd is well matched.
i...f you were there, post your tale!
...REMINDER: New show announcement:
Weezer will be playing the Champlain Valley Fair on September 2nd in Essex Junction, Vermont with special guests Coheed and Cambria. Tickets will go on sale Friday July 16th.
