Weezer is headed to Broadway for a weeklong residency
Say it ain’t like this: Weezer’s going to Broadway for a weeklong residency in celebration of the release of its entire SZNZ EP collection. The band, led by Rivers Cuomo, shared the SZNZ buzzer EP just in time for the summer solstice yesterday.
the five day residency will be held September 13-18 at the Broadway Theater, per pitch fork. The first four shows of the residency will coincide with the progression of the EPs, with SZNZ Spring played on Sept 13, SZNZ buzzer on Sept. 14, SZNZ Autumn on Sept. 16, and SZNZ Winter on Sept. 17. The final day will feature tracks from all of the EPs, as well as some Weezer favorites. The initial four days will also be padded with selections from the band’s discography.
The first of the SZNZ EPs, Jump, which was released in back in March. Since Autumn is set for a September 23 release and winter does not arrive until December 21, the residency shows will offer a sneak peek at the offerings.
When previously discussing the group of EPs, Cuomo said“Spring is kind of like happy chill, and then we move through to dance rock, like a Strokes-style album for the fall, and then sad acoustic, Elliott Smith-style for winter.”
The band recently performed the SZNZ: Summer single “Records” for Jimmy Kimmel Live.
