Weezer Provide The Missing Link Between MGMT And Lady Gaga

Also performing at the T-Mobile party that hosted the first concert in four years by blink-182: Weezer, who had a tweaked lineup (with Josh Freese on drums; wonder if Rivers Cuomo got a copy of his solo album when the hire went through?) and a cover of MGMT’s highly bloggable “Kids” that interpolated a bit of Lady Gaga for good measure / extra viral impact. The two songs mesh pretty well, although I do wish they’d thrown a bit of an old folk tune in there for good measure. [YouTube]
