The crowd knew all the words to almost every song, proving that Flatbush ZOMBiES’ message of open mindedness has resonated with fans for years.

The creative renaissance of Weezer’s latter-day career continues to go strong, with the release of their solid, maybe-conceptual eponymous record The White Album proving that their last record/return-to-form, Everything Will Be Alright In The End, was no fluke. It’s a pretty great time to be a Weezer fan, and this past week was a particularly great time to be a Weezer fan in Los Angeles as the band played an intimate show at The Troubadour before venturing off on a nationwide trek with Panic!

Although you’d be hard-pressed to find venues in the city more achingly modern than the two housed in the LA Live Complex, the 1920s and 1930s were alive and kicking at The Novo on Saturday night. The modernity of seductive ambient LED lighting fading seamlessly from blue to purple contrasted starkly with the flapper girls and suspendered gents rocking their best newsboy caps. But for how mismatched the whole scene might have appeared at first glance, it was perfectly fitting given the night’s billing.
