Weezer learned to be rockers in their garage, playing along to their favorite records. Because of their unconventional path to stardom, the band's music is "infused with a quirky sense of humor and an endearing awkwardness that turns their songs into big modern rock hits."
Drawing from the heavy power pop of arena rockers like Cheap Trick and the angular guitar leads of the Pixies, Weezer leavened their melodies with doses of '70s metal from bands like Kiss. They have sold nearly 10 million albums, earned a Grammy nomination for their #1 smash hit "Beverly Hills" and won a Grammy for Best Short Form Musical Video for "Pork and Beans." Be sure not to miss the genre-defining band Weezer live in downtown St. Pete tonight, Friday, November 9th!
