From the St. Augustine Amphitheatre
TheÂ band Weezer will perform June 6 at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, 1340 A1A South. Jeff the Brotherhood will open the show.
Their debut album, “Weezer” (also known as â€œThe Blue Albumâ€), has been certified triple platinum in the United States, and remains the bandâ€™s all-time best seller.
Â With help from the Spike Jonze-directed video, the single â€œUndone (The Sweater Song)â€ became a hit in the fall of 1994. The albumâ€™s final single, â€œSay It Ainâ€™t So,â€ was released in the summer of 1995.
Weezerâ€™s much-awaited second LP, titled “Pinkerton,” was released in 1996. It was quite different from the first album â€” the guitars were more gruff, the lyrics were deeper and much more exposed, and the bandâ€™s talent and style had matured considerably.Â Weezer released three singles from “Pinkerton:” â€œEl Scorcho,â€ â€œThe Good Lifeâ€ Â and â€œPink Triangle.”
“Pinkerton” eventually went gold in record sales and has been a steady seller since.
