Weezer performed live on April 7, 1992 at 8121 Club. The concert was performed acoustically.



See Historic event: 04/07/1992

..this was the 3rd weezer show, and the first of what was to become a number of early acoustic sets. There were a number of clubs that specialized in the acoustic/unplugged vibe, and weezer, desperate to get as many gigs as possible in a horribly competitive environment, honed their acoustic jamming skills early on.

The 8121 club [now called the Crooked Bar], is located underneath the Coconut Teaszer club at 8121 Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood.
- Karl Koch

The band aimed for a stripped down approach for the show. Pat Wilson played a drum kit consisting of only a hi-hat and snare, and used brushes instead of sticks. Rivers Cuomo and Jason Cropper played acoustic guitars, while Matt Sharp "turned his bass way down."[2]
