...MB '05 Tour: Day 111: Foozer/Wee Fighters 15: Cleveland, OH - The Wolstein Center at CSU
Cold and rainy outside, hot and crunchy inside! Cleveland was really Northeast-y today, feeling more like late November than early October, but that didnt matter inside the Wolstein Center, famed for its turkey flavored cookies, apples with worm sauce already inside and geniune handcrafted seats. Mmmmgood.

Of course, its really all about the rock, and tonight was no exception. Epic, big, bold, brash, all these words apply to what happened tonight inside the Wolstien Center, and I am happy to report that it was par for the course, because "par" happens to mean "really excellent" these days. Big ups to C Minus on the 1's and 2's, The Kaiser Chiefs, The Foo Fighters, and of course Weezer, delivering their 80 minutes in tune and on time like DJ Shadow.

Today Brian chose an "Undone" helper who was then literally unable to extracate herself from the crowd. The security dudes worked on the situation for several minutes but it was just too tight up there - she was stuck in a mass of weezer mania! Finally Scott called an audible and selected one Joey, who's "I can play undone" sign caught Scott's eye. Turns out Joey wasn't kidding! Be sure to check the comments section for his detailed personal account of the proceedings!

There was only one glitch tonight, the big =w= didnt rise at first due to an unknown malfunction. But it was a short lived mystery, assuming its proper position only a chorus late, and earning the roars and lighters just the same. The power of the weez is real!

Shout outs to Justin H and Karyn B!

fan reactions! (more in the comments section, and leave your own...)
"...Went to the Foozer show in Cleveland last night- and it was awesome. It was my 8th time seeing the band since 2000- and I'm serious when I say this, but it was the best they've ever been musically. It was nice to see them having so much fun- and they all (especially Rivers) seemed so alive. And tell Scott he did a GREAT job on Dope Nose- I didn't see that one coming. Thanks for putting on a great show..." ---Tom/GumbyTom

"...its been quite some time since ive been to a real rock show. and i thank you. amazing. thats pretty much all i have to say. i just want you to tell rivers that he should just keep on doing whatever he has been. honestly, rivers conversing with the crowd? that just doesnt happen. do not let anyone get on his case about his new found inner peace. his transformation from angry hermit to omnipotent rock god should be proof enough that hes on the right track.
thank you for letting pat sing. thank you for letting everyone else drum. thank you for playing 'song 2'. the best weezer show ive seen in, well, ever. keep on rockin', its what you all do best." ---maryclaire
