While searching for a clip of Weezer’s stop by Letterman last night, I came across a vid of their first ever stop by Dave’s place. They played “Say It Ain’t So” and I sighed. Whatever you think of the band all these years later, this much is undeniable: they are still making music. And doing television appearances. Last night they did If You’re Wondering If I Want You To (I Want You To),” a (the?) strong point on Raditude, and tonight they’re back at the Ed Sullivan Theatre for another serving. It’s a strong performance, the Late Show band bolstering Rivers’ stage-walking with some nice brass arrangements, so put the Weezy bit out of your mind and enjoy:
Head to EW.com for a clip of Rivers dressed as a purple spider as the band does “All My Friends Are Insects,” an original for the Yo Gabba Gabba! kids show.
Raditude is an album.
UPDATE: And here’s “I’m Your Daddy” in Snuggies…
