Last month Weezer did one of the coolest things I've ever heard. For a small, intimate performance, they invited everyone attending to bring an instrument, so the crowd could be part of the show with them.
Audience members brought everything from guitars to clarinets to toy pianos. The band taught them how to play the songs, and away they went. They played about a half-dozen tracks, including El Scorcho, Beverly Hills, and Pork and Beans.
Videos from this session have now been posted online. It looks like a blast - I would've killed to be there! There's talk that Rivers Cuomo wants to do an entire tour this way. That would be brilliant. I'll take my harmonica, and try to lobby for that Say It Ain't So solo.
