MUSIC MONDAY 3

Hi everybody!  Hope your weekend was great!  I went to a Weezer show with my friend Merryn on Saturday. I had the most amazing time.  The show was at the Tabernacle, a renovated church in Atlanta.  When I first bought the tickets, I was really surprised that they would play an event that small.  The Tabernacle only holds about 2,500 people, and for a band as big as Weezer, that's pretty rare.  Regardless, I had the most amazing time.

For those of you who don't know Weezer, they are a band formed in Los Angeles in 1992. They would be categorized as alternative rock, however, I feel that they defy classification. Their almost-garage sound and unedited vocals make for a real, raw vibe.  

For those of you familiar with Weezer, or at least one song, you probably have heard "Beverly Hills" from The Red Album (All of Weezer's albums are self-titled, so fans differentiate based on the color of the background.).  "Beverly Hills" was the group's first to reach the Billboard Top 10.  

While I do love "Beverly Hills," I feel that it's one that everyone knows.  Not that it's a bad thing.  I really love all of their music (which is probably why I spent so much buying their tickets.)  Without further ado, here's Weezer's "Buddy Holly" from The Blue Album.
