This week’s highlights
Weezer, 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 1, at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup. This California-based band is coming to rock the fair. The band released its 13th studio album, “Weezer (Black Album)” earlier this year. It is the sixth self-titled album from the band, distinguished by the color on the album cover, along with the Green, Red, Blue, White and Teal albums. In 2009, Weezer won a Grammy for Best Music Video for the song “Pork and Beans.” Fans looking for a bit of nostalgia in the form of rock music should check out the show.
