We waited patiently through the opening bands and then Weezer fully lived up to my expectations. It must be the geek in me that connects to their music. They just have a happy vibe, especially compared to the band that came on just before them. Near the end of the show they had a bunch of people come onstage and play whatever instrument they specialized in for a few of their songs. Accordion, cowbell, electric cello, clarinet, whatever. It almost made me wish I had kept up on my clarinet skills from 6th grade.

I told Ryan I'm so glad I married someone who would can enjoy something like this with me. He likes Weezer too, but I was especially glad when they did a Pink Floyd song. Just for Ryan.
This ends a recent trend of concert-going for us. I had decided earlier this year that we needed to take advantage of living near L.A. and go see bands/performances that we might not get a chance to see if we lived somewhere less populated. We crossed a few off our list, and now we need to be more diligent at saving our money. Sigh. It was fun while it lasted. Maybe if Weezer is still going strong in ten years we can take Alex to a concert.
Thank you Joel for introducing me all those years ago. I am forever in your debt.
Here is a Weezer song for those who are unfamiliar:
