Seeing Gene Ween on stage accompanied by just his acoustic guitar and a beverage is a gratifying experience. It’s a chance for him to recount Ween songs in intimate story form. He meddles familiar songs down to their simplest form and can make any venue seem as familiar as your coffee shop’s open mic night. ene will be playing tonight in Austin, TX and wrapping up his solo shows next month so you better catch him while you can. Buenos tardes, amigo.
But maybe the full Ween experience is your thing. If it is you’ll be happy to know about their slew of Spring tour dates, most recently announced is their show at the New Jersey oasis of a venue known as the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville. That is currently their last scheduled show before headlining the final day of the Sasquatch Festival on May 31st. Check out the rest of their tour dates below.
And now some fun for your Friday courtesy of the finest band to ever come out of New Hope, PA:
