The Weez!!

Weezer Finishing Up Sixth Album

After a year’s hiatus while front man Rivers Cuomo completed his English degree at Harvard, Weezer has decided to step back into the studio to put the final touches on the group’s sixth studio album. Yet to be titled, the album is set to be released early next year.
Cuomo himself confirmed the news with a post on the band’s website:
“Hey Party-People,Weezer is just polishing up a batch of songs for a recording session that is going to start at the beginning of July. This will be the final recording session for our 6th album which we aim to put out in the first half of 2008.
We hope you are all having good times.

Patton Oswalt

This man is a genius! My First encounter with him was when he opened the show for Aimee Mann and Michael Penn a few years back. Hillarious! He has a new cd out on Sub Pop Werewolves And Lollipops.

Oh, and have a listen to this!

Between the click of the light and the start of the dream

I didn't think I got any good pics at this show, I guess these 7 are decent. The whiskey must have been clouding my vision.
