It’s a been a long and often bizarre journey from the crunchy power pop of “Buddy Holly” to the perplexing, Twitter-prompted take on Toto’s “Africa”—but after 25 years of flying their dork flags high, Weezer is still belting out gooey vocal harmonies over cranked guitars. What’s more, this summer Rivers Cuomo and his pals are playing alongside their cooler big brother band, the Pixies, led by the redoubtable Black Francis, who has not a whisper of dork in his DNA. I mean, can you imagine a Pixies cover of “Africa”?
