The thrill of seeing one's favorite musicians in concert often alleviates the stress of modern life and the sweaty delirium from contracting Beatlemania. Enjoy an aural antidote with today's GrouponLive deal: for $25, you get one general-admission ticket to see Weezer at Riot Fest, held at the Congress Theater on Sunday, October 9, at 5:30 p.m. (a $44.50 value before fees, or up to a $51.72 value online, including all ticketing fees).
Veteran power-pop rockers Weezer serve as one of the highlights of Riot Fest’s diverse five-day lineup as they entrance fans with a churning, propulsive rock sound. Weezer’s anthemic tunes feature lyrics that segue seamlessly between irreverence and introspection, just like a clown's late-night emails to his ex, and an online fan vote picked a set list composed of songs culled from The Blue Album. Congress Theater's neoclassical façade and ornate concert space ensconce listeners in opulent elegance while they marvel at the onstage musical virtuosity. Baroque light fixtures, gilded walls, and a capacious dome provide visual stimulation between songs and afford royals the perfect opportunity to break out their crowns.
