Weezer Went Gaga (and MGMT)

On my way home from a wedding in Carlsbad, I drove past the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club on Saturday night, after the Weezer show. 

From my vantage on the 5 south, the parking lot -- jammed with cars/brake lights -- looked like the Festival of Lights during the holidays. After talking to track officials, Weezer -- arguably the highlight of the Del Mar Summer Concert Series -- pulled a humongous crowd of Jack Johnson proportions (circa 2001). 

Unable to attend due to the aforementioned wedding, I was able to locate the following Weezer set list (on the GolfingWithMusic blog), which included an MGMT/ Lady Gaga medley:

  • Epic Intro
  • "Hash Pipe"
  • "Troublemaker"
  • "Undone (The Sweater Song)"
  • "Surf Wax America"
  • "Memories"
  • "Perfect Situation"
  • "Dope Nose"
  • "Say It Ain’t So"
  • "Brian’s Theme" 
  • "Island in the Sun"
  • "El Scorcho"
  • "My Name Is Jonas"
  • "Beverly Hills"


  • "Pork and Beans"
  • "Kids" (MGMT cover) + "Poker Face" (Lady Gaga cover)

Encore 2:

  • "(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To"
  • "Buddy Holly"
