...Well we're in the leafy wild woods of The Shire, AKA the backstage artist's area of the Virgin Free Fest, and it's a beautiful day indeed. A zillion bands are playing today including tourmates Taking Back Sunday and Blink-182, and Public Enemy, Jet, The Hold Steady and many more. Fun times! The crowd was HUGE and it really felt like a headlining show today for weezer, as the people simply went ape-doodoo during weezer's set. All in th weez camp agreed that this was the peak of the tour so far overall.

Also apparently the head of Virgin, Richard Branson parachuted in and shot t-shirts into the crowd out of a t-shirt cannon. What can beat that?

...Reminder: Weezer's new single, the first from their upcoming 7th album "Raditude" is called "(If you're wondering if i want you to) I want you to". And the super simple radio request phrase once again is: "(If you're wondering if i want you to play "(If you're wondering if i want you to) I want you to", yes, I want you to play "(If you're wondering if i want you to) I want you to". What could be easier? ***Debuted at #21 on 8/27! #1 most played on KROQ Los Angeles! Thanks to you!***
