Apple has announced that multi-platinum rock band Weezer will be headlining its annual WWDC Bash on Thursday evening.

The night of music, food, and drinks will take place at Discovery Meadow in San Jose tonight between 7-10 p.m. local time. The park is located just down the street from the McEnery Convention Center where WWDC 2019 is taking place. The event is free, but a WWDC 2019 badge must be presented for entry.

Attendees 21 years and older may drink alcohol and can pick up a wristband for drinks on the plaza outside McEnery between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., or at the bash tonight, by showing a valid government-issued photo ID. There is no bag check at the bash, so attendees are advised to leave their bags at their hotel.

WWDC officially ends on Friday evening, but the end-of-WWDC bash is hosted on Thursday evening since many people fly home on Friday morning. Last year, the event was headlined by rock band Panic! At The Disco.

The worst era for music won't die. That being said, Weezer are about the best to come out of that mediocre era.

I remember hearing a Metallica fan say this in one of their early Docs:

"Every generation will scorn the next, and their music".

I disagree, though.

Personally, I'm a rock fan, and while supposedly "rock is dead" today, I don't care.

Most of the bands I like are still making music (RIP Chris Cornell), and new fans of said music are doing so too, so I'm good.

I get to skip American Idol, the Grammys, the Voice, and the rest of the maintream music industry.

Thankfully, we live in an era where this is completely doable, since finding music I like is easier than ever before, even if it's NOT mainstream.

Rather, ANYONE can find the music they love.

Freedom, Baby.

Yeah.

PD. New Tool album in August. HELL. YESSS.

They couldn't have found someone with a little more relevance? Sorry but I don't want to watch grandpas in a rock band, even if they did produce some gems. Cage the Elephant would have been better.
