weezer show #10: The Coconut Teaszer, Hollywood
The Coconut Teaszer was one of the 'big 3' Sunset Strip clubs [the other 2 being the Roxy and the Whiskey] that were the big holdouts of the glam-metal scene of the '80s. It was difficult for a "alternative" band like weezer to break into this scene, and the leather-clad regulars tended to clear out when anyone not dressed in full rock garb hit the stage. And weezer dressed in anything but full rock garb! Teaszer bills were always a bizarre mix of glam bands, bar rock bands, morbid looking gothic type bands, and the ocassional pop type band like weezer. This was another club that the bands 5/25 demo tape helped break them into.
Despite the weird match-up, Weezer ended up doing a lot of shows here in '92. I recall one show where the announcer guy kept saying 'its weeeezer at the teeeeaszer' over the p.a.. I guess their reputation was temporarily cemented at that point.
there are no [known] photos from this show. L: the Teaszer, color corrected to show its ugly purple look of '92. R: another Matt "Straight Dope" type flyer.
