Titus Andronicus and the Vivian Girls Prove Once and For All That Weezer Is How Every Human Under 25 Learned to Play Guitar


To review: Weezer’s “Sweater Song” is your holy text; this howling, elemental singalong conducted by Titus Andronicus and the Vivian Girls’s Cassie Ramone last night in Philadelphia will serve as your rites. That Titus’s Patrick Stickles nails the solo note for note, and that he and Cassie are able to convincingly recreate the random dialogue that fills in the blanks between verse and chorus, should be all the proof you need that Weezer songs are as sacred to the young as Appetite For Destruction was to us, back when we were young. One of those clips that will make you envy people who play music for a living.
