Weezer, Brand New to headline EdgeFest 2014

By the time Weezer's just-announced Aug. 10 show at EdgeFest arrives, two years will have passed since the last time Rivers Cuomo and crew serenaded Buffalonians along the water.

That show, if you harken back to Jeff Miers' account of July 13, 2012, was a roaring success. Weezer breezed through a 16-song set list -- then returned for two encores -- and still had fans pleading for the show to continue.

The legendary Los Angeles rock band -- bolstered by Buffalo-native drummer Patrick Wilson -- will headline the EdgeFest bill that kicks off at 4 p.m. Aug. 10 at Buffalo's Outer Harbor, 325 Fuhrmann Blvd., Buffalo.

Famous for tracks like "Say It Ain't So," "The Sweater Song," "Island in the Sun," "Hashpipe," and countless others, Weezer nears releasing a 2014 studio album, "Everything Will Be Alright in the End."

Presented by Funtime After Dark, the EdgeFest lineup also includes Brand New, The Sheila Divine and Pentimento, with more names still to be announced.

An early opportunity to purchase tickets -- at a reduced $25 (plus $2 facility fee) -- begins at noon Friday and runs through Sunday. If you miss the first window, general admission tickets will be available immediately after for $40 apiece, and the price rises again to $48 day-of-show.

Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster.com, at all Ticketmaster locations in the U.S. and Canada, the Town Ballroom and After Dark Entertainment box offices, and by calling 800-745-3000.
