2009/06/24 D.C. Show = FREE Virgin Mobile Festival
*****UPDATE 7/11/09 Happy Birthday to Scott Shriner!*****
The DC show details have been released - this is a FREE show at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia MD, and it has been expanded into the "Virgin Mobile Freefest" festival, with several stages and many more bands than just Blink and Weezer. Note That even though the show is free, you do have to claim a ticket, and you may end up paying a small fee, either because of a ticket shipping fee or making a donation (which nets you the "Karma Package" which includes a nifty t-shirt). Lest I mix it up, see the site for the straight dope.
Weezer mailing list members were sent out their presale info and password earlier today, for the presale starting this Friday at 10am. The public onsale starts Saturday 6/27 at 10AM. (Yes, you DO need a ticket, even though they are free. Only so many people can fit into the Merriweather!)
...in other news, Kelly Clarkson raves about Weezer in the New York Times. And why not.
