Jorge Garcia and Weezer

The apotheosis of this Weezer/Hurley love affair, at least as relates to its properly acknowledged and benign origin, came Tuesday night at an Axe party at Dunes Inn in Hollywood. (The logical conclusion of the hedged and hem-hawed Weezer/Hurly love affair is this gallery of clothing photos.) Jorge Garcia jumped onstage and traded some lines with Rivers on “Perfect Situation.” In fact we can say he sang with Weezer, because it turns out Hurley can, in fact, sing, brotha. And it turns out he can remain lovable despite being ostensibly out of his element, although I guess that won’t come as any surprise to LOST fans since the Hurley character is built on being endlessly lovable despite being perpetually out of his element. Very method, Jorge Garcia.

Video of that below, as well as the first confirmed dates of the Blinkerton trek (officially titled the “Memories Tour” because Weezer know their ABCs — Always Be Cross-promoting)

My Chemical Romance was on hand too, joining Weezer on “My Name Is Jonas.” And at least one Kardashian was spotted in the audience.

Hurley is out via Epitaph.

  1. There are so many things RIGHT with this, I almost can’t comprehend how right it is!

  2. Leave it to Stereogum to make me like something that involves Weezer!

  3. Why does Weezer insist on making it really difficult for me to like them. Axe AND My Chemical Romance in one show? It doesn’t get much worse than that.

  4. Haha, Rivers looks so startled. Admittedly, Hurley looks pretty frightening as he’s singing, so I might have the same reaction.

  5. thanks for using my videos! :)

  6. Weezer is like LOST in that the terrible final act ruined the previously enjoyable beginning.

  7. is it me or does my chemical romance dude look like James Iha and Billy Corgan morphed?

  8. Going to see Weezer only to have My Chemical Romance sing My Name is Jonas sounds like a nightmare I’ve had.

  9. Tokyo Police Club is also covering My Name is Jonas on their tour right now. Tokyo Police Club > My Chemical Romance.

  10. WE’vE GOT TO GET BACK TO THE SELLING OUT
    I Mean
    ISLAND

  11. Hurley is awesome…he looks like he’s having the time of his life.

  12. Perfect Situation is such an underrated weezer classic. just about as good as anything they have done before it, despite how much people like to shit on that album.
