weezer show #33: The Alligator Lounge, Los Angeles
This show was organized and promoted by weezer, more specifically Matt, who booked the club and got the many bands to agree to play in a sort of mini-palooza of local LA groups. The Alligator Lounge was located on Pico Blvd on the West Side of L.A., not far from the "Amherst House".
The Show was touted as "The Big Crazy Show '92", And besides weezer, featured Joyride, Crux, Black Market Flowers, Missing Honey, El Magnifico, Boys Named Sue, Silvertrain, Fast Eddie Lee, and "DJ Cock". DJ Cock was what Matt decided to name Karl, who was appearing as the between-bands dj on the wheels of steel. Karl played a pretty eclectic mix ranging from Black Sabbath to the Pretenders to Superman storybook records. The crowd seemed to dig it. The biggest turntable hit of the night was probably "What's The Buzz?" from the Jesus Christ Superstar soundtrack. One funny incident occured when after the decidedly country-rock Boys Named Sue set was finished, Karl played "Im a little bit country" by Donnie and Marie Osmond. The guy from Boys Named Sue didnt have much of a sense of humor! In general, however, all the bands had a great time and the show was considered quite a sucess.
