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 gets the Miley Cyrus cover treatment. [YouTube via NYmag.com Vulture] Keep reading »

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 wearing Hush Puppies, that is so hipster it makes the mainstream indie again? [PopDust]
  • Sarah Jessica Parker is on the cover of Vogue again. Again! [Just Jared]
  • Emma Watson said she had no idea Daniel Radcliffe struggled with alcohol because “as far as I know, he never took a sick day. He was like the most professional, amazing guy ever.” [Us Weekly]
  • Even Richard Simmons is getting in on this planking action. At least, that’s what I think this photo is. [Dlisted]

Weezer Offered $10 Million To Retire

A disgruntled former Weezer fan, James Burns, has launched a campaign to silence the band. He decided he was “tired of being disappointed year after year” ever since the album Pinkerton came out. He says the “the abusive relationship” between him and Weezer’s music needs to stop. So how does he plan to make them go away? He has offered the band $10 million to retire and has even launched an online fundraiser to get the funds together. Naturally, lead singer Rivers Cuomo doesn’t think the stunt is cute. “They must get a lot of hits when they write crap about us,” he tweeted. Poor Weezer. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Jorge Garcia Joins Weezer On Stage

Rivers Cuomo and the dudes of Weezer aren’t just obsessed with unraveling sweaters—they’re also big fans of “Lost.” Hence, why they decided to call their new album Hurley and to use the character’s face as the album cover. Well, at an event last night, the band was actually joined by none other than Jorge Garcia. He helped them sing “Perfect Situation.” We say put that large man in stripes, get him a pair of glasses, and make him a permanent part of the band! [EW] Keep reading »

Man Gives Woman Anniversary Gift — From Weezer

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. Future husband dude (whoever you are), the bar is set awfully high. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

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 him to contribute a solo for “I’m Your Daddy.” Kenny fully admits that he didn’t even know who Weezer was before he got the email, but that didn’t stop him from diving fro first into the collaboration. My ears are already confused but still … can’t wait to hear it! [Popeater]

Kenny G and Weezer are not the first odd couple to make beautiful music together. After the jump music’s oddest pairings.

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 lovable like his pale gansta rap track.
