Weezer & The Pixies at Excel Energy Center in St Paul

The 2019 concert season is in full swing and the latest show was Weezer. I love anything 90’s and Weezer holds a special place in my heart. They are rock stars, but more importantly, they are all akward nerds which makes them super relatable as a band.

There seems to be 2 groups of people when it comes to Weezer. Group A consists of people who think that the only good thing they thing they did was the Blue album and Group B thinks the new stuff blows that out of the water. There is a pretty funny SNL sketch about it even. I actually love all their stuff, except this new album of covers they did.

The Pixies were good. I am not a huge fan, but they sounded pretty solid. Weezer was rockin! Crystal Clear vocals, nice mix of sound, fire, and all the hits. My one complaint is all the covers they played. The show would of been super short of they didn’t play them.

They opened the show with a barbershop quartet version of Pork and Beans. Awesome!
