I could talk about school today, but why would I do that when I went to go see one of the greatest bands on earth? That’s right; today at the Allentown Fair was Weezer. And I’m not going to lie, it was FANTASTIC!
After newspaper, and taking home Daniel and Haroon, I went over to my uncles house where he was arguing with his college friend Ben about what bars I could legally get in to. And so started the long day until the concert. My Uncle is a hardcore Weezer fan and has been since 1994. To say that is actually an understatement, so I know this concert meant a lot to both me and him. Him in the respect that it’s his favorite band ever, and me because it was my first concert ever.
We spent about an hour at the bar (I sat there with my cup of soda while they all; except the designated drivers, drank.) we went to the fair, grabbed something to eat, and then made our way to the concert. When we got there the opening band, The Gaslight Anthem was wrapping up, but from what I heard they weren’t half bad. Then after 45 minutes of a transition, Weezer came on. They played all the best and greatest songs and certainly did not disappoint. I took a lot of video and pictures, so I’ll post some of that on here when I get the chance.
Rivers is as nerdy as people say, but it’s what makes the band awesome. After their first song, Rivers demanded that the fan in the audience give him a giant, pink gorilla stuffed animal, which he then proceeded to sing to. The opened with Hash Pipe and wrapped up with My Name is Jonas. In the middle they had Kids/Poker Face, Perfect Situation, Undone (with a special Allentown twist), and I Want You To, just to name a few.
So for a first concert, I must say this: SUCCESS!
