Free Energy Set to Join Weezer on Tour


Over the last 8 weeks or so, DFA’s Free Energy have been rolling out a series of videos entitled “Free Energy’s Power Hour.” An odd mix of comedy and music, the the series was written and directed by the band with help from director, producer and friend Ben Nabors.

Lest we forget what the Free Energy boys are actually known for, they’re currently in the midst of a SPIN Magazine sponsored tour with Foxy Shazam. And, later this month they’ll join Weezer for a handful of shows. A full list of dates can be found down below.

Free Energy Announce New Tour Dates… With Weezer!

Free Energy are on a roll. Their debut album, Stuck On Nothing,  which came out in March on Astralwerks/DFA Records, was produced by Mr. James Murphy, Rolling Stone’s words to describe it are, very simply, “It totally fucking rules”
and Pitchfork calls them “totally rad.” Not bad for a first album.

Things are getting bigger now as they will be joining Weezer’s Memories Tour for the band’s Boston and New York dates in December! We have all the dates below! Meanwhile, they still have a good month accompanying Foxy Shazam around the country (we have those dates too) but are making a point to keep those who cannot follow them on the road entertained with the “Free Energy Power Hour.” During this express TV show, the band shows off their comedic skills with mock tape repair ad and parodies of tacky buddy sitcoms, among others. You can view the second episode right HERE!
