Watch Rivers Cuomo Sing “Tonight” From “West Side Story”

If you love Weezer (yes) and you love “West Side Story” (double yes), then you’ll love this video of Rivers Cuomo belting out Tony’s part from “Tonight.” He’s not quite ready for Broadway but he’s certainly better than your average high school musical. Leonard Bernstein won’t roll over in his grave, until this get…

Evening Quickies: Weezer Hosting An Indie Rock Cruise & What Sex With Charlie Sheen Is Actually Like

Weezer is hosting an “indie rock cruise” from Miami to Cozumel, Mexico, next January! Bands slated to play/re-enact that “Titantic” I’m-king-of-the-world scene include Yuck, Wavves, Free Energy, Sebadoh and Dinosaur Jr. Honestly, Weezer is more “Top 40″ than “indie” at this point, but maybe organizing a Carnival cruise is one of those hipster things, like…

When Mark, of comedy crew The Key of Awesome, wanted to celebrate his first wedding anniversary with Anastasia, “the wonderful mother of two retarded cats,” he didn’t just get her a card and some candy. No, he got WEEZER, who collaborated with Mark on a kick-ass song about how majorly rad she is.

It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin! This week it’s all about The Strokes main man, Julian Casablancas, going solo and putting out one of the superflyest vigilante records ever. But he’s not the only hotness on this phat Tuesday.

Kenny G, Weezer, And Other Bizarro Musical Collaborations

When I think of Kenny G, his long, curly fro and smooth jazz saxaphone stylings come to mind—not nerdy glasses and skinny jeans. And yet, Kenny G is teaming up with indie rock gods, Weezer, for a song on their album, Raditude, which drops next week. Frontman Rivers Cuomo apparently emailed The G and asked…

Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of June 3rd 2008

Goddamn you half-emo guys, you do it to me every time. To follow up the poptastic single that makes even my vegetarian roommate want a spoonful of Pork and Beans, Weezer has a new classic, cheap, and colorful record- The Red Album. Sigh, Rivers Cuomo may not beThe Greatest Man Whoever Lived, but he’s still…
