Rivers Cuomo is pleased to announce the April 28th release Not Alone – Rivers Cuomo & Friends Live at Fingerprints which will be available both as a DVD and as an EP. Not Alone has its origins in an in-store jam session Rivers Cuomo held at Fingerprints, a record store in Long Beach, CA. The event was a celebration for the release of Alone II – The Home Recordings Of Rivers Cuomo on November 25, 2008. From a post on his website Rivers invited super fans from across the country to dress sharp and join him in a makeshift band. They helped pick a set list which ended up being a mix of Weezer classics as well as ultra-obscure fan favorites. The 150 lucky “friends” had never met or practiced together, but they fearlessly came to rock out with their favorite songs in what was a long, magical night.
Additional bonus footage on the DVD includes the video for “My Brain Is Working Overtime,” an interview with actor Jason Schwartzman and this clip of Rivers speaking mere hours prior to the momentous in-store:[youtube Klq5viQU_3Q nolink]
