Forget “Beverly Hills,” Broadway is where Weezer wants to be.

Rivers Cuomo and company have booked a five-date residency at New York City’s Broadway Theatre, taking place from September 13-18.

Each of the first four shows will be based on an installment of Weezer’s ongoing SZNZ project, a series of four, seasonally-themed EPs. The fifth and final show will then feature a set of songs from across all four SZNZ EPs, along with “Weezer fan favorites from the previous four nights,” a press release says.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 24 at 10 a.m. ET via the Broadway ticketing platform Telecharge.com.

The Broadway residency announcement coincides with Tuesday’s release of the second SZNZ EP, SZNZ: Summer, which, not coincidentally, arrives on the first day of summer. Weezer previewed the seven-track collection with a performance of the single “Records” on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday night as part of their “seasonal residency” with the show.

You can listen to SZNZ: Summer now via digital outlets. SZNZ: Spring was released in March, while Autumn and Winter will drop on the first days of their respective seasons later this year.
