Secret Weezer Show
The Secret Show featuring Weezer will feature special guests Natalie Portman's Shaved Head. Doors for this all-ages event will open at 8 p.m. and entry will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Raditude's swift appearance on the heels of 2008's The Red Album is hardly the only surprise Weezer has in store on its seventh record. Raditude upends any expectations audiences may have of Weezer, amplifying their trademarks to a dizzying degree - the pop hooks dig deeper, the rock hits so hard it bruises - but the group subverts these signatures with a sly hand while pushing boldly into new territory.
With its rollicking communal spirit, Weezer's latest offering can be viewed as a natural progression from those impromptu jam sessions from the band's Red Album tour. Raditude sees the band partying with Lil' Wayne, hitting the clubs with Jermaine Dupri and bringing in a host of Indian musicians to push the band into a psychedelic, spiritual dimension. Within these 10 songs lie boundless possibilities and ceaseless excitement, proof that Weezer remains a band that defies easy summations and can never be taken for granted, a band who has grown as they've opened their horizons.
