In addition to standbys like “Troublemaker” and “Surf Wax America,” Weezer’s high-energy set at the Mirage Las Vegas on Friday night included a few fun diversions — like, for example, Rivers Cuomo covering Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” while wearing a wig. After the show, we rode with Cuomo and bassist Scott Shriner, and asked the Weezer frontman just what exactly he thought of the Vegas crowd, who he’d just demanded identify themselves: “Are you guys rock stars? Are you Rolling Stone journalists? Are you Weezer fans? Are you gamblers? Are you partiers?”
