Music for the Season
Weezer and guests rock out on summer road trip with concert stop in Austin
The rock band Weezer is taking a self-proclaimed "Indie Rock Roadtrip," a tour that will make a stop at Austin's Germania Insurance Amphitheater on Thursday, June 8.
The tour will kick off in Huntsville, Alabama on June 4, traveling to 30 cities over the course of three months. In addition to the Austin date, the band will also play The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory in Irving on June 6. Those are the only two scheduled stops in Texas.
Weezer will be joined on the tour by some of the biggest names in indie rock, with Modest Mouse and Momma playing in both Austin and Irving. Other stops will see Future Islands and Joyce Manor or Spoon and White Reaper. (It is surprising that Spoon, one of Austin's most successful alternative bands, is not playing in its hometown for this tour.)
The most recent project for Weezer was 2022's SZNZ, a collection of EPs, made in realtime, all matching the aesthetic and sounds of each season.
The band, known for hits like "Buddy Holly" and "Beverly Hills," has released 15 albums in their career, most recently 2021's Van Weezer.
Tickets for the tour go on sale on Friday, March 3 at 10 am at Ticketmaster.com.
