You gotta love when a great band covers another band? I came across this piece of Youtube gold, it’s a fan-filmed video from the 2011 Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco. It shows off a chocolate meets peanut butter moment of musical; wonder as Foster the People covers Weezer’s ‘Blue Album’ classic ‘Say It Aint So’. The song is one of Weez’s all-time best songs and to hear Mark Foster elegantly deliver the lyrics of Rivers Cuomo is a real treat for the years.
It’s the perfect video to bridge our Nights We Stole Christmas energy from last year when Weezer headlined a night to this year when FTP will play the Aragon for Night 2 of TNWSC on December 1st, get your tickets here.
Weezer felt the love in the past few years adding a funky cover of FTP’s ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ to their set on occasion.
