New local Weezer tribute band No Memories debuts at O’Leary’s Pub in Scranton on April 10
From a press release:
No Memories is a Weezer tribute band from Northeastern Pennsylvania that will be making their debut at O’Leary’s Pub in Scranton on Friday, April 10. While they don’t try to look like the multi-platinum selling artists, they emulate their songs with precision and bring their own high-energy performance to the stage.
The four members of No Memories are better known for their contributions to the original music scene in the area, but all have been heavily influenced by Weezer throughout their careers. The group consists of Ed Cuozzo (A Social State, Melded, A Fire With Friends) on vocals/guitar, Mike Ghigiarelli (Shattered Sky Productions, Melded) on lead guitar/vocals, Matt Mang (The Great Party, The Reigning Toads, Mr Echo) on bass, and Brad Beneski (Pull the Pin, Melded, Shattered Sky Productions) on drums.
Watch Ghigiarelli’s impressive guitar cover of “The Futurescope Trilogy” below:
Weezer’s debut self-titled album, referred to as the “Blue Album,” and their follow-up, “Pinkerton,” remain the favorites among most fans and will be the most heavily covered by No Memories. The rest of the sets will be filled in with well-known hits to satisfy casual listeners and deeper cuts from later albums that may surprise the bigger fans.
The show at O’Leary’s Pub (514 Ash St., Scranton) starts at 9 p.m. and will cost $5 at the door.
