Description

The following description was used by online retailers for the EP:

This in-store was held as a celebration for the release of Alone II: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo. From a post on his website Rivers invited super fans from across the country to dress sharp and join him in a makeshift band where they would get to pick the set list. That set list ended up being a mix of Weezer classics as well as obscure fan favorites. The 150 lucky friends had never met or practiced together, but without fear came to rock out their favorite songs with their favorite guy...as you will see this was a magical night.
