BTMI! to perform Weezer albums

2010-09-16 by uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh | 68 Comments
DIY punk band Bomb the Music Industry! have announced that they will play Weezer's Blue Album and Pinkerton back to back at their October 9 show in Ridgewood, NY.

"Because you really don't have the money to see Weezer play that shit as shells of themselves on some massive stage," the band said.

How the fuck is it pretentious? Just because they're covering two Weezer albums? It's all ages and will probably cost $5 and be undoubtedly fun as shit.

An aging Weezer charging $50 at some arena seems a little more pretentious to me.

don't get why people are hating on this, it's a great band playing songs of a formerly great band, so what if Jeff is the only one that has the balls to actually say it... If anyone wants to actually argue that Weezer is anything but "shells of their former selves" (atleast musically), go right ahead

freedomofspeech you are a fucking idiot. "nothing but their music". oh wait its one show. and theyve had over 5 successful albums and have been more consistent than almost every band, you just measure success in a shitty way.

Happy to say I will be attending. To everyone criticizing BTMI! for doing this, listen to the cover album of Radiohead. They were able to mock the band, while still creating original covers. I personal can't wait to hear Undone, and especially Butterfly.
