Yes, this much blogged about event has come and gone. And did it live up to all the hyperbole in my head? I have to say it did. As you know, I don't get out on the music scene much, so I really don't feel qualified to write a critique of the show. Rivers Cuomo, the lead singer, had a head cold, which I'm sure affected the band's energy level.
Maybe my standards are low because it's been so long since I've seen a rock concert, but River's hoarse voice didn't deter from my overall concert experience. Like that "OMG--there they are!!" moment when the band you really, really like walks out on stage for the first time and starts to play. And belting out the words to all your favorite songs along with fellow giddy fans.
That beats singing along to a Weezer CD while you're chauffering your kids around town any day.
