Local bands love Weezer

A group of local bands combined forces to pay tribute to one of their favourite bands — Weezer, Feb. 12 at the Slice. At least their first two albums.Tyson Wiebe does his best Rivers Cuomo  impression. Photo by Richard Amery
I caught the end of Bluerton’s set, Jesse Northey of Jesse and the Dandelions sported a pair of thick horn rimmed glasses like Weezer singer Rivers Cuomo.
The idea was to form impromptu bands to play  the first two Weezer albums all the way through, almost note for note. Record Holder’s Nicole Hembroff sang back up vocals and Quint Viskup was on drums. Aaron Trozzo jumping. Photo by Richard Amery
The next band, Pinkerton, included a who’s who of Lethbridge’s indie music scene including Aaron Trozzo, Jeff Orriss, Tyson Wiebe and Jon Vornbrock who exchanged instruments throughout an energetic set which had an almost full house dancing until closing time. Both bands got together for an encore  of “Hash Pipe”, one of Weezer’s latter day hits.
