ROCK | Weezer


The best part about Weezer's most recent album was that Hurley from "Lost" was on the cover. It just didn't live up to the band's normal standards. But when you have the track record that the accessibly mature dorks of Weezer do, it can be hard to match past efforts. The band's debut album "Weezer," — or "The Blue Album," as it is referred to — is arguably one of the most influential alternative rock albums of all time. Chances are you've heard one of the many successful singles off that album — "Buddy Holly" and "Say It Ain't So" among them — but the deep cuts aren't anything to shake a stick at either. And that's just one of the band's nine albums. If one thing's for sure, it's that Weezer's live shows aren't short on variety.

Weezer plays with DIIV on Saturday, June 21, at The Main Street Armory, 900 East Main Street. 8 p.m. $39.50-$45.;
