In the country for their anticipated and celebrated Blue Album shows, the band known as Weezer jumped in a speedboat and headed to the infamous Island Bar in Sydney, floating in the harbour, to perform a "DJ Set" for Channel [V] and some very lucky fans and guests. The event ended up being more of a meet and greet than an actual DJ set, with the band preferring to mingle than play tunes. Though as the night progressed, we did see Rivers playing some of his own music off is iPhone and singing us some of it. It wasn't quite a "live performance", more "karaoke", but it was still a whole heap of fun. A very memorable evening for all in attendance!

But don't let my status as a "fan" belittle any praise bestowed upon this gig. I've seen Weezer before, and they weren't this good. I've been to many shows as a big fan before, and rarely do they deserve such praise - after all, the bigger a fan you are, the easier it is to be let down. This was one night where it was good to be a fan, one night where no one left disappointed. And, irrespective of hyperbole, how often can one say that about any show, period? But before we get there, let's take a look at the supports...

Live Review: Weezer + Cloud Control - Brisbane Entertainment Centre (13.01.13)

In order to fully appreciate Weezer's longevity as a band and the nostalgia they inspire in their fans, it’s necessary to hop in a time machine back to the plaid-clad world of 1992.

ACL Live Review: Weezer - Zilker Park, Austin (12.10.12)
