The severe weather potential in Birmingham on the week of October 18 just went up based on my past experience. UAB hosting a free Weezer concert. Every time I’ve attempted to see Weezer live it has ended in disaster. When they were in Nashville, I didn’t even make it into Tennessee thanks to a thunderstorm knocking down trees and blocking I65. We were stuck for hours. I was looking forward to seeing them at Schaefer Crawfish Boil in late April 2011. We all know how that ended. Needless to say I’ve turned down numerous offers to sail on the Weezer Cruise. Maybe one day.
Neil Peart, the drummer from Rush for most of the band's existence, passed away earlier this week from brain cancer.
Here are a few of my favorites
This first one is my favorite. The one time I saw Rush live, they played the intro to 2112 - called Overture - that leads into this song. Just as they got to this part of the song, they stopped. I was bummed.
