Weezer w/Sleeper Agent 5/31 Mohegan Sun Arena Uncasville Review/Photos

June 6, 2012 The Audio Perv 0

By Matt Arena

At first thought, garage rock in an arena might not sound like the greatest idea. Arena rock has traditionally incorporated big sounds, accompanied with over the top, expensive production pieces.
