Weezer Show # 61 - The Roxy, Hollywood, CA

This show was a benefit for Children's Hospital in L.A. that was dubbed "Locopalookaz", a reference to the Lollapalooza festival, due to the large number of L.A. area bands on the bill. The show was actually at both the Whiskey a-Go-Go and the Roxy, with the set times being staggered so people could walk back up and down the block and not miss the bands they wanted to see.

The setlist for this show is unknown aside from that the new songs "In the Garage" and "Buddy Holly" were both played live for the first time ever.

For in the Garage, Rivers debuted stage use of the harmonica (see photo), something that was used in 'Garage' and 'Jonas' for the first few months of the band's touring.

This show marked the first weezer show after getting signed, and was last weezer show before going to NYC to record the Blue Album. Therefore, this was the last weezer show that original rythym guitarist Jason Cropper played. The show was heavily attended by industry types including Geffen Records staffers and the bands then-lawyer, Jamie Young.
