106.5 The End Birthday Bash featuring Weezer, Catfish and the Bottlemen and Dreamers

When: Fri., May 12, 7 p.m. 2017

Geekcore gods Weezer, who headline 106.5 the END’s Birthday Bash, almost imploded soon after they started. At the time of its 1996 release, their messy masterpiece Pinkerton was considered a commercial letdown. While Rivers Cuomo and crew licked their wounds, nascent emo kids discovered the quartet’s power pop meets metal crunch tunes, catapulting Weezer to their current alt rock elder status.

Price: $29.50 and up.
