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"
