What Happens In Vegas Does Not Stay In Vegas
By Michael Garner
A couple weeks ago Buzznet asked us to document a day on tour, we chose the stop in Vegas with Weezer. As a kid I listened to Say it Aint So’s intro guitar line probably a billion times. I knew I had to learn how to play guitar, even if it was just to play that one song. And I did. And I took pride in the fact that I could sing along to the entire Blue Album, even the high parts (and eventually Pinkerton, too).
So here I was, a couple decades later, on tour with one of my all time faves, Weezer, in Vegas no less. Watching them sound check was funny with their faces on the marquee behind them (semi pictured).
And soon enough it was our turn to soundcheck. We stood on the stage, overlooking a rooftop pool with a Vegas city skyline backdrop. Pretty sweet.
Our soundcheck echoed off the fancy high-rise hotels and all across Las Vegas Boulevard, creating an unintended soundtrack for tourists on The Strip.
In front of me laid Weezer’s secret plan for the night!
After our soundcheck, thousands of Weezer fans packed the rooftop pool, waiting for the show to begin. It’s an interesting position to be an opener… you know the majority of people aren’t there to see you, but you still have the stage and the obligation to prove that you’re worthy of making them wait another hour to see the main event.
Here we go again!
The crowd was great and we even got to be on the jumbo screen. Hey look Ma! I’m on TV!
We’re all on TV! A very big TV!!!
And then I was immediately transformed back into my teenage self, dancing and singing along to every song with the rest of the fans in the Vegas crowd.

This week's movie of the weekend is Only God Forgives staring none other than the very handsome Ryan Gosling. Good or bad you get to look at Ryan the entire time, and that doesn't bother us one bit. The movie is about a drug smuggler who is thriving in Bangkok's criminal underworld with a few twists along the way.

When Nicky Romero hits the turntables, people pay attention – and come out to party.
Romero was back in Hollywood for another sold-out show recently – one that celebrated the release of his new track "Ignition."
Hollywood’s Create Nightclub provided more of an intimate setting than the best selling artist is used to, but gave Romero the perfect venue to premiere his latest work.
Since he broke out with his hit "Toulouse" in 2012, Romero has dominated the world of house music with live sets like the one he unleashed in LA (seen above) at Create, and the following week on the main stage of the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.
