I don't want to be all presumptive about this...

but there is a distinct possibility that Furge and I drank a few too many 4.75 pitchers of Stag at the Weezer Tribute Band set.

This wouldn't be so bad if video didn't exist of me blasting lyrics, out of key, into the sweaty musty air of the Stagger Inn in Edwardsville.

For anybody wondering, Weezer before 1998 played (in no order because I can't remember without Ryan or one of the other So Many Dynabros helping me):

  • Buddy Holly
  • El Scorcho
  • The Good Life
  • I Just Threw Out the Love of My Dreams (with Natascha B. on vocals)
  • My Name is Jonas
  • Only in Dreams
  • Pink Triangle
  • Say It Ain't So
  • Surf Wax America
  • Tired of Sex
  • Undone (The Sweater Song)
  • Why Bother?
  • You Gave Your Love to Me Softly

    It was really great to hear, in 2008, what a pre "let's just stick to writing bozo songs that lack any kind of personal feelings or else the label will shitcan us" Weezer show could have been like. But without Matt Sharp, who is totally fundamental to everything.
