Oh that it were that easy to get a gig supporting Weezer on their first tour to Australia in 16 years. Apparently it is! The band in question EMPRA are now being presented to Weezer’s management regarding the support act slot.
The boys from EMPRA baked a blue Weezer cake that featured a sheet of icing made with an edible printed picture using the Weezer Blue Album artwork (1994), replacing the images of the Weezer band members' heads with their own heads. Along with a will to succeed and an application to support Weezer on their upcoming tour of Australia they bundled it up and sent it off to Chugg Entetainment, who were very grateful indeed and arranged for the band to be presented to Weezers management. Nice one.
