2012/09/14 Rama, Ontario, Canada: Rama Casino: Entertainment Centre
...After a few weeks in rock limbo, Weezer has reassembled like a Voltron 200 watt full stack, this time in the pastoral Chippewas of Rama First Nation land near Rama, Ontario, Canada, On the shores of Lake Couchiching, not far from Lake Simcoe. Up here its all about the great outdoors, but they built a very impressive indoor structure, the Rama Casino, which is where the rock takes place in these parts. So we are oddly surrounded by lakes, birds, corn, and clean air, but also baccarat tables and poker chips galore. Whatever - to inject weezer into Northern Ontario, you go where the rock calls. Which is how it should be.
