ABCs of Rock Concert & Artshow with Geezer & School of Rock on August 13

On August 13, The ABCs of Rock: A benefit for Rock School Fund will feature the local senior citizens of Geezer (which began as a Weezer tribute), performing with their adopted "grandkids," aka the San Diego School of Rock House Band.

"The ensembles will perform 26 songs, one for each letter of the alphabet," says Geezer's too-old-to-rock-and-roll-but-too-young-to-die spokesman Adam Gimbel. "An amazing surprise setlist that could be anything from 'Ace Of Spaces' to the Zombies performed in an amazing outdoor setting at downtown's Space4Art. All-ages! Food! Alcohol! All await you."

The event will include an artshow with rock & roll related drawings, paintings, and autographed items by musicians and artists of all kinds, with contributed donations designed to represent every letter of the alphabet. Profits will benefit Rock School Fund, which donates money to children with a desire to play music. (ONLY) $10 suggested donation.

Says Gimbel, "I'm doing this benefit show for the Rock School Fund, which raises money for children who otherwise couldn't afford to participate in the country's best rock music education programs."

He's still looking for contributing artists. "We're getting submissions from all kinds of artists for each letter of the alphabet. The piece could be about a band, a song, an instrument or anything else music related. We're trying to get one for each letter and then decorate around the pieces with all kinds of fun music stuff."

Image Geezer gives you rock the way that it was meant to be done: by senior citizens. The band combines all of the excitement of the 1980s with the nostalgia of the long-forgotten era of the 1990s, as done by musicians in their nineties. Weezer and other rock and roller hits, fan favorites, nurses, naps, and medication are all in a night’s work for the world’s oldest (or at least most aged) cover band.

If you don’t think they sound just like the real Weezer, you should have your hearing checked out, sonny. The act began when people arrived in droves to see locals Rookie Card play Weezer’s classic Blue Album for a benefit at the world-famous Casbah. Instead, they were greeted by old men offering Werther’s from deep checkered pockets.

The group retired to Florida after just two shows but were resurrected four score and seven years later, with Zachary Goode Sr. on bass guitar. Radio station FM94.9 asked them to host auditions for Weezer’s 2008 Hootenanny, where the band was letting lucky fans play with them onstage in each city of their tour.

Now, the old-timers have the rare opportunity to brag about actually playing onstage with the band whose songs they cover (except that they can’t remember any of it).

Maybe you were one of the 10,000 in the crowd to see them onstage at Cox Arena with Weezer in 2008. “Geezer is coming to your town to steal your Depends and date your grannies,” warns the band.

Another project, Geezer from the Crypt, debuted September 17, 2010, at Bar Pink, owned by former Rocket From the Crypt frontman John Reis. The Cover Me Badd crew transforms into senior citizens, playing the music of their semi-namesake.

Geezer was nominated as Best Tribute Band at the 2010 San Diego Music Awards. "We lost to a Sublime cover band," says Zach Goode (Secret Seven), “so we walked on stage anyway pretending we were senile and thought we had won.” Geezer was nominated again for the same category in 2011.
