06/17/08 Phoenix Hootenanny!
Today was the Phoenix Hootenanny. About 200 fans, randomly selected by the Edge radio station joined the band at The American Legion Post 41. Were you there? Did you bring an instrument and play along? Tell your story! Add a comment to this news report!
Here's a fan's video clip, hot off the press!
Also, the Edge's webcam seems to have captured some pre-show set-up.
SPECIAL NOTE: As weezer emerges from spring training into regular season action, we suddenly have a member on injured reserve. For those keeping score, please scratch Patrick Wilson from tonights line up. The strong right hander tore up his knee up in that friendly basketball game with team mate Johnny Knoxville. The good news is that even though he is expected to be out until the Century City hootenany with Yahoo being taped June 23rd - he WILL in fact be rested up and ready for that one. After that performance, he then goes under the laser for minor knee surgery. A full recovery is expected before the fall playoffs when Weezer hits the road in Japan and the good ol' USA.
NEXT UP: Thursday 6/19: PORTLAND, OR! KNRK is handling it! Good luck!
See the band's instructional video clip (now on the homepage and media page, and our Youtube channel and our Myspace Video page), letting you know critical details about how to play the songs! Definitely watch this video, youll need it to know what key the songs are in and other musical details!! Remember, if you get in, be prepared to at least sing, and bring an instrument if you can play it! Anything!
songs to learn and sing: same as Phoenix:
Pork and beans
Island in the sun
Say it aint so
Creep by radiohead
