Booby Trap: Weezer seek female fans to join their choir at the Sinclair — but only if they have a ticket

Weezer are playing a very-sold out show tonight at the Sinclair in Cambridge, and have sent out a call for female fans to join them onstage to be part of a backing choir. The only catch is that you need to already have a ticket to the show.

And since the very-in-demand $65 tickets to this “club gig” are non- transferable — as one Craigslister famously found out the hard way — chances are the ladies who will join Weezer tonight will have had to pay for the privilege.

The help wanted ad reads: “Attention Bostonian Weezer fans! We still need 4 more female fans who already have tickets to the Sinclair show to join the Weezer choir. If you are a strong female singer and want to join Weezer onstage tomorrow night, please email ASAP!”

Earlier posts to the band’s Facebook page, which was seeking similar contributors for shows in Philadelphia, New York City, Pomona and Los Angeles, asked the following questions: “1. What vocal part do you sing? (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, or Bass) 2. Can you read music? (Not required, but helpful!)”

Didn’t Amanda Palmer get a bunch of shit for this sort of thing a while back?

Weezer’s new album, Everything Will Be Alright In The End, is out now via Republic.
