Has it been a wacky week for everyone? I bet, you poor things. I think you deserve a chance to sing-loudly, hug a stranger, and perhaps even cry of joy and nostalgia.
What better way to do all of these than at the, ahem, WESTON SHOW THIS WEEKEND!
If you were a young adult growing up in Eastern PA in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, there’s a good chance that 65% of your favorite memories of that time involve WESTON as the soundtrack. These are some of mine:
– Calling up the Wilkes College radio station in Wilkes-Barre (where I’m from) to dedicate “two two” to a boy I’d been seeing around the mall and never spoke to.
– Playing “Heartbreak Sandwich” over and over driving from Wilkes-Barre to Allentown in the fall of 2001, when I left said boy (by then my boyfriend – Weston works in magical ways) to move into school.
– Getting in my very first terrible car accident (I wasn’t driving!) when a carful of brave souls battled through a horrific blizzard to try and make a show in Harrisburg or something. We missed the show, but if there’s any band to almost-die for, Weston’s it.
PLUS A BILLION, TRILLION MORE, of course.
And aren’t we just the luckiest ducks? This Saturday they are combining their musical powers to re-live old memories and invent new ones.

ALL AGES // NO BOOZE
if you live in the valley and dont already know this band… well, you must not have lived here long. classic late-90’s/early 00’s pop punk still rattling about from time to time.
whoa! reuniting over 10 years after parting ways! most of the current generation of show-goers have probably never even heard of this band, but believe me you are missing out.
philly trio playing real good pop punk jams. seriously incredible, seriously stoked.
We are going to have so much fun singing and sweating on each other!
