Today in Weezer History: 11/21/1992 - Weezer plays "The Big Crazy Show" at the Alligator Lounge in West L.A. This show was set up and promoted by Matt Sharp who was the de facto show getter for Weezer in these days. Weezer lived around the corner from this club and there was a new booking guy there and somehow Matt got him excited about doing a big show with many current bands on the L.A. scene, even though only a few of them could really draw anyone. All the stops were pulled out and favors cashed in to get everyone to come play, and about 75 people ended up coming that night, which was quite good at the time. Other bands were Joyride (with Steve Soto, ex-Adolescents, Crux (later Skiploader), Black Market Flowers, Missing Honey, El Magnifico, Boys Named Sue, Silvertrain, Fast Eddie Lee (a Wax associate who occasionally played harmonica when weezer played "Jonas"), and "DJ Cock", who was actually Karl Koch on the turntables. Matt decided on that name and put it on the flyer, and Karl had to suck it up and deal. It was really his first DJ gig, and it went pretty well except when he played "I'm a Little Bit Country" by Donnie and Marie Osmond after the country tinged LA scenesters Boys Named Sue left the stage. The feathered cowboy hat longhaired leather jacketed lead singer got up in Karl's face and said "Don't you EVER do that AGAIN!" No sense of humor, those guys…
