Everyone's been asking me what the deal is with The Big Orlando, a one-day music fest that radio station X107.3 is putting together for early December, featuring Weezer, Fall Out Boy, Dirty Heads, Young the Giant, J. Roddy, Bear Hands and many more at the Central Florida Fairgrounds. Tickets are on sale now for $44.50, which is pretty reasonable, especially if you missed out on Weezer at Universal's Mardi Gras earlier this year. The festival begins 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 7, at the fairgrounds. And if you're the gambling sort, you could always enter to win tickets through X107.3's website here.
Weezer's highly anticipated new album Everything Will Be Alright in the End is due out Oct. 7, so you'll have plenty of time to consider whether the new songs strike little old three-chord you.
