Karen O, Karen O, Karen O. We love your crazy fashion sense, we love your music, we even love saying your name. But how far will this love go? We’d love it if you put out another record with Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but a “psycho-opera”?
According to a release from The Creators Project via Twentyfourbit, the as-of-now untitled work will be about “an assault on the tragic joys of youth” and will be premiering in mid-October as part of the The Creators Project’s big homecoming after travelling the world (kind of) doing very artsy, very cool things. The opera will be presented alongside numerous other art installations and multimedia performances, so all in all in sounds like a pretty sweet shindig. But still, “psycho-opera”. What does that even mean? What could such a performance possible entail? Are we going to go crazy if we watch it more then three times or something?
Many of our favorite musicians are creative dynamos, unable to be bound by the limitations of one inspirational outlet, branch out into other mediums non-stop. Sometimes it’s amazing! And occasionally it’ll leave us more “innovatively-challenged” types scratching our heads. Like some Garth Brooks/Chris Gaines type stuff.
Weezer have made a career out of churning out endless amounts of good time, fun rock and they’re better at it then pretty much anybody else. So it must’ve been interesting for fans back in 2000 to see the group, performing under the moniker Goat Punishment and performing covers of Oasis and Nirvana tracks. And not just the obvious singles, but some deeper cuts as well. All that adds up to some sweet ’90s alt rock goodness.
