...After a crazy blast of thunderstorms in San Francisco last night, the dawn broke clear and we headed out to the deepest hinterlands of the North East Sacramento-ish Rural Non-Affiliated Sector, where they put this Sleep Train Ampitheater for no clear reason. But we are here now, and many fans are too, presumably from Sacto, Davis, etc. Rock Time Is Now. Rock Time was good! Despite its odd location, Sleep train sounds very good and the people and weezer were having a good time. Another ukelele bites the dust - such is the toll exacted by the forces of rock, and roll.

...Reminder: Weezer's new single, the first from their upcoming 7th album "Raditude" is called "(If you're wondering if i want you to) I want you to". And the super simple radio request phrase once again is: "(If you're wondering if i want you to play "(If you're wondering if i want you to) I want you to", yes, I want you to play "(If you're wondering if i want you to) I want you to". What could be easier? ***Debuted at #21 on 8/27! #1 most played on KROQ Los Angeles! Thanks to you!***
