Basement: On Tour with Weezer & The Pixies
Understanding Weezerand for
OK, then. This all means the new songs are less creepy and misogynist, but also less catchy and interesting. Not high school kids: elementary school kids, some of them with fauxhawks. Throw in five cover songs, and Weezer is basically your uncles all getting together to rock it out and show you they still know how to party. That, alone, was worth the drive from Lawrence, parking, walking seven blocks, and hanging around waiting for the show to start. We missed openers Basement.
Following a rapturously received summer tour, Weezer will be returning to the road with Pixies this spring for a run of highly anticipated North American arena dates. Produced by Live Nation, the city tour will kick off March 8th, while making a stop in Baltimore on March 17th! Ticketmaster www.

Weezer & Pixies With special guest BASEMENT
Weezer performs at Oracle Arena in Oakland on April 10, Photos: Joaquin Cabello. Vocalist Rivers Cuomo, now clad in jeans, a blue and white sweater and Vans, looked and sounded like an eternally teenaged nerd as he sang along with the enthusiastic crowd. Yep; note for note. When Cuomo got as far as possible from the stage, he stood up in the boat with an acoustic guitar—which refused to make a sound. The crowd begged Cuomo for one more as the singer pointed at his watch. It was a powerfully cathartic show ender.
The Pixies were also on the ticket. They brought their groups to the Times Union Center on Thursday night for a co-headlining show. Both delivered fantastic performances, but the combination of hooky anthemic rockers, an audience better acquainted with their songs and a live show ready-made for an arena setting made for an evening best suited for Weezer. Cuomo led Weezer through a crowd-pleasing minute set. The band played material from throughout its year career, with two focal points: the band's beloved recordings and cover songs born out of the unexpected success of its cover of Toto's hit "Africa. On Thursday, Weezer pivoted from "Pink Triangle," a beloved track from its early years, to an unironically stunning version of "Africa" and it made sense.
Black Francis unceremoniously broke up the Pixies in — infamously informing the band via fax — while Rivers Cuomo founded Weezer the following year. Both acts likely provided the teenage soundtrack for many in the crowd of more than 9, The Pixies and Weezer also share a certain cynicism that was on full display Saturday. Francis has long treated his audience, and bandmates, with a certain annoyed detachment. During their brief first stint together, the Pixies made some truly magical music with shrieking vocals, surrealistic lyrics and huge hooks.
