Weezer, Foo Fighters make odd mix memorable

Anna Nicole Smith and J. Howard Marshall II. Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise. Weezer and the Foo Fighters?

On the surface, they're all odd couples, but something down deep connects them, producing something memorable, as was the case Wednesday night when the two bands rocked a packed America West Arena.

Up first was geek/pop/rock quartet Weezer. The band, led by the notoriously conflicted singer Rivers Cuomo, seemed to be in good spirits throughout its 18-song set.

Heavy on tunes from its lastest release, Make Believe, the set also featured nearly all of the band's hits. New songs such as 'We are All on Drugs,' and especially 'Perfect Situation,' with its infectious refrain of 'Ohhhs', won over the crowd.

But it was the band's classic hits that really worked fans into a frenzy, including 'Say It Ain't So,' 'Hash Pipe' and 'Buddy Holly,' during which the band's giant flying "W" sign descended from the rafters, getting the massive pit swirling and swaying.

A lucky fan named Mandy was plucked from the pit and got the honor of jamming with the band on 'Undone (The Sweater Song).' But it seemed like she was either too stressed trying to strum the right chords or was just plain bored because she didn't seem too enthusiastic about being on stage.

Driven by the propelling beats of drummer Patrick Wilson, the band's songs popped during the show, proving that seeing Weezer live is the only way to go.
