THE WEEZER EXPERIENCE

On Saturday, my friend Merryn and I went to a Weezer show.  Although we had to wait outside the venue in the freezing cold, we had a really great time.  For those of you who know me personally, you know that I live for live shows.  I literally sat in class on my laptop waiting for the tickets to go on sale.  Needless to say, I didn't do very well on the next test.


My first picture of the night was a selfie from Marta.  For those of you who don't live in or around Atlanta, Marta is like the Subway.  It's a big underground train system.  Although I rarely take Marta, it's really useful for concerts or places with limited parking.  

Our Marta experience was pretty funny.  My parents were nervous to let me drive all the way to the venue, and the SEC Championship was in town, so we decided on Marta.  My mom sat us down and literally mapped out where we were going to walk to get to the venue. We ended up getting hopelessly lost.  After aimlessly wandering the streets of (sketchy) downtown Atlanta, we popped into a hotel to figure out where to go.




Once we got to the venue, we had to wait outside for around 45 minutes.  The temperature was around 43.  Thankfully, I was wearing leggings and a jacket.  Poor Merryn was wearing a skirt!  Waiting in line was actually pretty fun because we met new people, got free Redbull (yum!), and saw one of my ex-boyfriends (which wasn't as awkward as it sounds.) The Ferris Wheel in the background is a fairly new Atlanta addition.  We liked joking around and taking funny pictures with it.

The show itself was really fun!  At first, the band came out one by one and performed a song acoustically.  They then performed my favorite all time Weezer song, "Buddy Holly", which was probably the most exciting moment of my life.  We danced and sag at the top of our lungs.  Then, the black curtain behind them dropped, they changed clothes, and picked up electric instruments.  We danced our ways through their entire new album.  It was so much fun!
At the end of the night, we had a really great time.  I was a little disappointed because they didn't play "Beverly Hills", "Say It Ain't  So", or "Undone (The Sweater Song)".  Overall though, it was great.

Do y'all like going to live shows?
