Some feel-good Friday music, anyone? Speaking recently of cool things at Fingerprints reminded me of the time this summer when this clip made me smile — “El Scorcho” recorded live in Long Beach, CA on 11/25/08, a crowd singalong of an exceedingly fabulous variety:
From a post on his website, Rivers invited super fans from across the country to dress sharp and join him in a makeshift band where they would get to pick the set list. That set list ended up being a mix of Weezer classics as well as obscure fan favorites. The 150 lucky friends had never met or practiced together, but without fear came to rock out their favorite songs with their favorite guy.
Some songs are just truly meant to be sung with 150 people you don’t know, and a collection of BYOI (bring your own instruments).
