Across The Sea10:54 AM
Weezer. Where do I even begin? The band that got me through some very horrible times in my life, which is why, despite whatever the rest of the world has to say about you, I will defend you until the end of the universe. Pinkerton, The Red Album, both blasting through the paper-thin walls of my old apartment, and on repeat. My throat continuously hoarse because of constantly screaming the lyrics to every song, much to my neighbor's displeasure. Driving Kyle insane with The Blue & Green album, until he finally broke down and bought me Maladriot, just to listen to something else. When everyone else cringed, I proudly bought Make Believe, Raditude, and Hurley. When I got to Death to False Metal and heard your cover of "Unbreak my heart", I fell in love all over again.
So when Kyle bought me tickets to see my heroes on stage, in Canada, for the Second time, I was ecstatic. I never complain, but I am used to sitting in the nose-bleeds whenever we go to concerts. When we got into the venue (Ceaser's Windsor), we ended up being on the floor, second-row to the left of the stage. I was already freaking out because I could actually see them, then during "Keep Fishin'" Rivers came down with his guitar, looked around awkwardly, and then sat in a wheel chair and was pushed around through the crowd. If my arms were three times their size, I could have reached out and touched him. He is sooo tiny!
It was Scott's birthday! He kept kicking Rivers during one of the songs, so they started to sing about it. Rivers: "Scott, why were you just kicking me in the butt?", but you know, SINGING IT. During "Perfect Situation", the crowd sang along and Rivers referred to the audience as 'his choir of angles' !!! For a group of guys in their mid-forties, they have an energy level that could rival my 10 year-old brother.
I was honestly too busy starring, drooling, singing, fangirling, etc. to take pictures, so thankfully Kyle did or you would not see any of these. Including, but not limited to, several butt-shots of both Brian and Rivers (they were blurry, but still). Near the end of the set, we all rushed the stage. Being that close to the stage was exhilarating and terrifying as I am very nervous around crowds, but it was WEEZER. I had to use my fangirl powers to their fullest extent!
Oh and here is a pic of me looking like a goober next to the stage after the show. So basically, if you so much as kinda like Weezer, I highly recommend going to see them. They are funny, sweet, loads of banter, and they sound amazing live.
