Weezer fans and NAG supporters packed the back room of Union Pool last night to hear The Blue Album Group cover the band’s eponymous classic. The BAG was note-for-note on ’90s alt anthems “My Name is Jonas” and “No One Else,” while “The World Has Turned,” a personal favorite, sounded a little fast. There were some other snags for the BAG, but that didn’t stop people from singing and dancing (in a restrained fashion).
Not sure what NAG’s fundraising goals were for the night, but the back room was overflowing with supporters — we’ll try to find out how that translated into dollars, and how those dollars will become oral histories.
Update from NAG: Thanks to the efforts of Keith and other Story Project volunteers, we netted $430 for use toward recording equipment…The Story Project currently has around 60 people interested in participating, whether as storytellers, interviewers, artists, editors, promoters, or general advisers…Our next meeting is Thursday, May 21st, at 7 p.m…If you know anyone who might be interested in the project, please spread the word, and feel free to send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Below are some pictures Trent Morse took of The Roulettes at the event.
