Weezer leader Rivers Cuomo played a solo acoustic set at The Hi Hat in Los Angeles this past Saturday. The performance lasted almost two hours and included lots of Weezer songs plus a few classic covers, and thanks to one industrious bootlegger, you can watch the whole thing right here.
Cuomo opened with R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion” and immediately followed it with another early ’90s MTV staple, the Smashing Pumpkins’ “Today.” Much later in the set, he busted out the Oasis epic “Champagne Supernova,” and he ended things with Pixies’ still-ubiquitous “Where Is My Mind?” (Pixies and Weezer are heading out on a co-headlining tour this summer.) The bulk of the performance was tunes from throughout Weezer’s entire quarter-century discography.
YouTube user Rey Philip de Joya filmed the full performance and marked out the setlist on YouTube. Here’s that table of contents for your guidance:
