Video: Dashboard Confessional Cover Weezer, Bryan Adams at NYC Concert


It was a night of Dashboard classics and covers Friday at the band's sold-out concert at Nokia Theatre in Times Square.

Frontman Chris Carrabba coupled DC favorites ("The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most," "Vindicated," "The Good Fight,") with old school gems, including Bryan Adam's 1984 "Summer of '69" and Weezer's "El Scorcho" (check out a clip of that performance, above).

"We've been influenced by a lot of bands over the years," confessed Carrabba, who formed Dashboard in 1999 in Boca Raton, Florida.

We'll never forget going to see Carrabba in Davie, Florida's now-defunct Club Q at age 14 in 2000 - there were less than 100 people in the room and hardly any of them were paying attention!

The boy has come a long way!

Check out the performance of the song that started our love affair with DC, "Screaming Infidelities," below.
