Surrounded by mostly high school kids, Gwen and I were a tad bit skeptical about how much we were going to enjoy ourselves on the floor, aka, orchestra “seating”. We spent the night leaning against the back wall away from sardine-packed bodies. As far as I was concerned, we were close enough. When the onstage explosions were ignited, I could feel the heat radiating on my face. Weezer rocked. They played a lot of songs off of Pinkerton which surprised me since it wasn’t a popular album. Of course it’s one of my favorites. But perhaps I am getting old, for next time I would much rather have an actual seat to sit in. A place to relax, enjoy the music and drink a beer.
