Full Moon Howl


How do you improve a Weezer concert? Make it a Bleezer show, by having Weezer open for the reunited band, Blink 182. Those two alternative rock bands' songs go together like ying and yang. Throw in Chester French and Taking Back Sunday--two other fun bands to hear live--and you got yourself a great concert lineup.

And, thanks to internet-enabled phones, college football fans didn't have to choose between seeing the concert or the much-anticipated University of Colorado/Colorado State University game going on at the same time. "CSU won!!!" a slightly drunk, very happy alum told me in a stunned voice, after checking the final score on his Blackberry. I pictured my brother, another CSU alum, jumping up and down for joy over the news back at home.

Other than the $9 beers, there wasn't too much to complain about at this concert/sporting event/tailgate party. Near the end of the show, Blink's lead singer Tom DeLonge pointed out how pretty the full moon looked. "Hold up your cell phones so they look like stars!" he told the crowd. We happily obliged.

sounds like it was a fun evening!! $9 beers! wow!!! last concert I went to in 1994 the beers were $5; so I guess that's about right with inflation and all

that would have been a great concert with Weezer and Blink 182 :)

glad you guys got to go and have some fun :)

Everybody needs a howl at the moon once in a while. Sounds like you had a good time - and have made, for yourself, a pleasant memory.
