The Show Report, 7/13: Do you want to destroy my sweater?

July 13, 2009

surfwax_bandAlright, so they’re not playing “The Sweater Song”–at least, it’s not on their list–but Surf Wax America, the Weezer tribute band made up of Ilijah‘s Ryan Spilken, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin‘s Philip Dickey and Jonathan James, Josh Donelson from Jazzercise and solo artist Grace Bentley, will evoke memories of many other Weezer classics tonight at The Outland, paired with Our Cat Philip from Columbus, Ohio.

Surfwax America – A Weezer Tribute on Monday, July 13

Details are sparse at the moment, but word is we should see a finished product sometime this summer.
