10/11/08 Troublemaker Tour Show 18: Seattle - Key Arena
Back to the mercifully (for the moment) sunny city of Seattle, specifically the Key Arena which was until recently the home of the Seattle Supersonics, who it seems have moved to Oklahoma. Therefore, the Key Arena has been recently sorely lacking in good wholesome entertainment. So its particularly fortunate that Weezer came along today to provide Rock and Roll, for the kids to dance all the latest dances to. Yes, there they were, doing the Vegan Strut, the Backslash, the iPhone Shuffle, and the Forced Error Watusi. Oh, how they danced. Oh my.
Special thanks to Johnny D. for taking today's photo #3! Folks, if youre in trouble and need expert legal council in the Seattle area, or you need a telephoto picture taken, Johnny D. is your man. Can this be said about anyone else.

SPECIAL NOTE about the 3 UPCOMING CALIFORNIA SHOWS:
For the San Jose, Los Angeles and San Diego shows, Brian Bell's other band Relationship will opening the show! But to see them, youll have to arrive early, because The Relationship will be playing at 7PM sharp! Its The Relationship, then Tokyo Police Club, then Angels And Airwaves, then Weezer. So no excuses, come to the show on time and get the full measure of Rock!
RIVERS NEEDS YOUR STICKERS! Rivers needs to decorate his drum kit (the one on the side of the stage, not Pat's in the middle), and he wants stickers to do it. Years ago, you served my father in the Clone Wars; now - er, wait - I mean, years ago, Rivers asked for stickers for his guitar, and hundreds of you tossed envelopes loaded with crazy stickers onstage for days - his Stratocasters were quickly plastered! Can we count on you guys to come thru again? However you can get them to us works - if you see me, pass em over - if youre close to the stage, toss em up! Just write "Stickers for Rivers" on the envelope! Thanks people!
