The Glass House
November 6, 2014
Beyond dimly lit canyon roads and past a mysterious castle in Chino Hills you'll find The Glass House. Weezer, one of the most popular post-grunge bands of the '90s took the stage last night, performing at the fifth show of their eight-stop tour and they decided to start the night off with an intimate acoustic set.
The audience sang, "Goddamn you half-Japanese girls/Do it to me every time" from Weezer's song "El Scorcho," released in 1996. The crowd -- an eclectic mix of nerds in flannels and punks in denim vests -- all attentively watched and chimed in. Towards the back of the venue, a security guard pulled an underage girl aside as she was drinking by the bar and escorted her out as a older man showed his medical stash to his friends. Rivers Cuomo, lead vocalist, announced that up next they would be performing a song they'd yet to do on tour from the album Make Believe, released in 2005.
They began to perform "The Other Way" and fans laughed and devotedly sang along with the chorus. Cuomo yelled out to the sea of bodies standing before him, as well as those above peering over the balcony, "Here we are again at the Glass House." Fans whistled and screamed and the band seamlessly transitioned to "Back To The Shack" pointing the mic towards the audience. Next up was "Island In The Sun" and the band debuted a slowed-down rendition of the favorited track as iPhones were grabbed and videos for Snaphat and Instagram commenced.More »
