Matt and Kim
Weezer

Brooklyn duo Matt and Kim, dressed as Andy Warhol and his It Girl Edie Sedgewick, took the stage to Fat Joe shouting "Where Brooklyn At?" over the sinister beat of his hit "Lean Back", while they threw out candy to the crowd before beginning a fun-filled set that included their infectious smash hit "Daylight" and short nods to Europe's "Final Countdown" and Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll Part Two."

As for Weezer, they were dressed in various insect costumes, which vocalist Rivers Cuomo had audience members remove for himself his fellow band members while they continued to play "Undone (The Sweater Song)" early on in the set. The sold out house danced along to all the bouncy music Weezer had to offer (literally bouncy, as the band had a trampoline set up on stage), including hits such as "Perfect Situation", "Island in the Sun", "Surf Wax America", "Buddy Holly", "Pork and Beans", "Dope Nose", and new ones "I Can't Stop Partying", and "I'm Your Daddy." They also played an absolutely awesome cover of MGMT's "Kids", which took a detour to Lady GaGa's massive hit "Poker Face" in the middle. But as usual, it was "My Name is Jonas" that brought the house down.

The biggest surprise of the night, other than the cool cover, was an appearance by Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester. The TV star came out in nude pants splashed with random bursts of color and a 60's style beehive to sing a duet with vocalist Rivers Cuomo on "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To." She sang very well, and later Tweeted that Rivers was "perfection in a bottle." [Examiner]

Weezer maybe had the bug costumes left over from a taping for on an upcoming episode of Yo Gabba Gabba!. More pictures from their Saturday night Halloween show at Hammerstein Ballrooom, including many crowd members in costume, below...

there's a song missing from that list... didn't they have Matt sing Dope Nose? He did a good job.

How bad were Matt and Kim? My God, its so pathetic when he tries to whip the crowd into a frenzy before a song...only to kick into some lame shit that no one can possibly get excited about. But, on the plus side, they made Weezer's performance look epic by comparison.

The best part was right before Weezer when Matt Pinfield came out dressed as Jim Morrison and called the crowd "a bunch of fuckin' slaves."

Why does Weezer's drummer think he has a reason to stand behind Rivers and now play guitar???

Why do Weezer seem to not care that they are coming across as creepy 40 year olds who are sadly trying too hard to stay hip with the "kids"??

Why do Matt and Kim suck soooooooooooooooo bad??

According to the Weezer board, "The show was astounding and will go down in Weezer history as one of the best shows they ever did."

Great show. Great pictures. I could have done without Leighton Meester - but still enjoyed Weezer.
