Show Recap & Photo Gallery: Weezer Open New Natick, MA Microsoft Store in Rockin’ Fashion
June 9, 2013
Microsoft Store – Natick, MA
Photos & Recap by: Ilya Mirman
Microsoft has been on a roll lately, welcoming dozens of stores across the U.S. over the past year. With each opening, a great musical act is featured, making these events particularly fun. Last year’s opening of the Boston store brought Lenny Kravitz to the Bay State. And this past Saturday, Boston’s Metro West residents saw the ushering in of a new store in Natick with alt rock band Weezer as the musical treat.
Microsoft made sure that the “pre-game” was fun for everyone as well – there were cool product demonstrations (Xbox, Windows Phone 8), a raffle (everything from games to a Weezer-signed guitar), and delicious food from The Cheesecake Factory. And as a very special treat, a meet-and-greet with Weezer!
At 7pm, Cuomo & Co. took the stage, and played a fun, energetic set that kept the crowd moving, dancing and singing along. They played both deep cuts and hits, to the great satisfaction of the fans – some of whom slept out the night before in order to secure tickets. Band members were easy going, seemed to be having a genuinely fun time, and appreciative for the opportunity – all while whaling away on song after song. It was clear that Saturday night, Weezer expanded their fan base.
Here’s to more Microsoft Store openings!
