Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo showed no ill effects from the December bus crash that left him with broken ribs as he dashed around the stage, climbed ropes, leapt on to platforms and swung on a rope into the crowd.

On a balmy night in Elizabeth, IN, toilet paper banners soared into the air as enthusiastic fans danced in front of the stage and cheered on their favorite geek rockers, now easing into their 40s, still in the midst of a successful career.

The songs were mostly a mix of old favorites like "Hash Pipe," "Undone," and "Dope Nose," with a few from the newest album, Raditude, mixed in. One lucky contest winner (I presume) got to sing one of the new songs with Rivers -- Louisvillian Chris Evans (I think I have the name right) had his moment in the spotlight, guest-singing on "If you're wondering if I want you to...." He seemed to have the song down, and from where I was sitting, sounded pretty good too.
