Title: Ween worst band ever? Discuss your thoughts about how awful Ween is here.
Post by: atomic on March 21, 2014, 02:14:48 pm
Since everyone likes discussing Ween so much. I started a thread for you.  What is your least favorite ablum.  Who is the worst member of Ween.  Why do they have such a declining fan-base.

Has anyone listened to the new Broken Bells album.  They did a song on XMU this morning and it sounded pretty good. Like old schools Shins.

ha ha..

no modern band has such a good streak as Ween did...the only issue is Quebec... I just don't get it but concensus is it a high point

but are you kiddingme? Pure GUava, Chocolate and Cheese, Mollusk, 12 Golden Country Greats, White Pepper? add the Live in Toronto album and WTF???

those are all 5 star albums.. who else did that? Even the Stones cratered (ween pun intended) with Goatheads Soup

Is Ween the ugliest band of the 90's?

They did a country album that paled in comparison to the county acts they were mimicking, but it's album is tolerable.

I honestly don't think I've heard any of their other albums.

Some people kept telling me how great they were so I listened to one of there albums and it was awful.  So I figured I would give them another chance as maybe I picked the wrong  album and that album was even worse..Something to do about chocalate or something.  But I guess their gimmick is they suck but we stuck in a different style of music each album.

Seeing as the venue's they play in keep shrinking they probably would make more money as a wedding band.

They were headlining festivals then a couple of years later they were headlining Sonar.  Now they are playing at the Ottobar.  Next month it will Metro Gallery.  After that they will probably opening up for Puppet Shows.

^now when you just make shit up you get very annoying amigo...

the venue sizes got bigger... not only that the places they were playing.... at the beginning it was a northeast thing with maybe NC...they spread out bigtime across the US..

the bands following grew..the legend grew...the boognish asserted itself.. towards the end they were drawing pretty young crowds unlike say bands like GBV, Luna which are bands that did lose their base as their fans turned into 30 somethings that got married, had kids, and started posting about their kids college fund on the 930 board..and younger people don't go near them without a 10 foot pole... see dean wareham playing U St Hall for $15.

unfortunately the drugs took a toll on Ween... and the bond between Gener and Deaner broke... also Deaners interest in leading fishing excursions didnt help... they became a live act to finance their respective lifestyles.. in the 90s they were getting together and fucking around with the 4 track machine and recording recording recording....

any more questions?

They headlined Lollapalooza.  I choose to see Manu Chao instead of them or was it Death Cab for Cutie?  Not sure but they were headliners.  After that time they played Sonar.  Are you stating that Sonar isn't smaller than Lollapalooza. Now one weenie is playing Ottobar.  Is Ottobar not smaller than Sonar?

1. Festivals are totally different animals but I can't take your word that Ween headlined Lolla because you just make shit up left and right.. yourself admitting you don't even know who you saw
2. Is Ween playing the Ottobar? Damn I need to get on that... wait a minute you're talking about Deaner....welll I'm not going ... and even on percocet I'd go see Ween at Ottobar..wait a minute...I'd really go on percocet..... you getting it? Ween does not equal Deaner. Deaner is the guitar player.. Gener is the singer...

anyways I watched it happen... Ween would play the 930 every year... a big part of the crowd where people driving from their home base around Pennsylvania.... they got bigger and things changed... the 930 shows  got less frequent..they expanded their base and started playing across the country..ocassionally they would play smaller places, i'm guessing for shits and giggles (ie, bottle and cork), but overall the crowds got bigger and more importantly they stayed young. the end.

Well it is easy enough to look up.  I did see Manu Chau and Death Cab for Cutie as headliners.  One day I picked one of them over Wilco and another day I picked one of them over Ween.  Two years after that they did headline Sonar.  Once again that is easy enough to look up.  930 club is not a huge venue.  Dwindling fan-base.  They had that song everyone loved yet they couldn't back it up.

I was planning to listen to each Ween album and give you a track by track synopsis of why I hate them. But I don't think I will make it through the first album.

Listening to "La Cucaracha" album now.  First song "Fiesta" wasn't bad.  An upbeat instrumental.  The second "Blue Balloon" was terrible.  Awful monotone voice.  Third song slighty not as bad.  But awful vocal stylings stick out. "Friends" has an awful lyrics.  Annoying keyboards.

The first of two or three times I saw Ween was in probably 1991 or 2 and they came out, just the two of them and played don't get to close to my fantasy.  It was jut Gene and Dean and massive amounts of vocals, drums, bass all piped in from a tape.  I thought it was hilarious.  What a fun show.

After that they had a live rhythm section, Andrew Weiss and Sim Cain who were totally awesome, but I just didn't think the shows were as good or as fun anymore.

Atomic, Please create a thread of the bands you like and why you like them...then the rest of the board can go and rip your commentary/opinions to shreds.


back to the program.

The Dean Ween Group was a fantastic show
It was nice that they mixed up the DWG songs with the dean'ers classic Ween songs
(Piss Up A Rope,  A Tear For Eddie, and My Own Bare Hands)
Guy did killer vocals on  Gabrielle blog (https://blogcritics.org/one-track-mind-ween-gabrielle/) (probably one of my fav songs from ween)

Didn't know any of the new DWG songs, but this one stood out was: I?m Gonna Get High
Guy is a great front man. The dual guitars and awesome bass by DD made it a really fun set.

The ottobar is one of my favorite venues to see a show.

I didn't see Chaz (never really made plans to meet) or other boarders, but seems some were there (heather?) Wasn't the same without Hutch there, I know he would have liked this one


some great photos from the show (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1480694845476025&set=a.1480694402142736.1073741861.1403035539908623&type=1&theater)


Also this was pretty cool to see from the band the next morning:
The Dean Ween Group

We could have never in a million years expected the reception and love we got last night at the Ottobar. It was like a hundred dreams fulfilled simultaneously. The crowd was exceptional and psyched and giving, and the band----I can't say enough about Ray, Dave, Joe, and Guy. It was a beautiful experience all the way through, the staff at the Ottobar was fantastic (they let us smoke and have the run of the place) and none of it would have been possible w/o Mel Yukna---her work led to a sold-out show (in advance). What a way to kick off the start of a new band. There's not much more I can say except a sincere thank you to everyone, from the crowd, to the staff, to the band..........again, thank you!


Also found this interview he recently did Deaner talks (http://www.app.com/article/20140325/NJENT01/303250033/Q-Dean-Ween-talks-new-band-summer-show-Stone-Pony)

At first I thought I had to separate myself from those songs, but then I realized that I wanted to embrace them.

Those songs mean a lot to me and to the fans, they want to hear them and I want to play them so that?s that really

Actually I started this thread so that Ween lovers would have a place to post their thoughts on their favorite band as they were cluttering up every thread with Ween nonsense.  I mean I don't care that you like a shitty band or not and wouldn't have commented on it.  I actually didn't comment the first thread they hijacked with Ween stuff but when it got to the point that every thread was trolled with Ween stuff.  Why are you blaming me for your cohorts actions?

Best interview I've read with him since the break up. Sounds like he's pretty much over it and they won't be back together. I kind of always assumed they would get together for at least a cash grab, but it sounds pretty dead.

I'd say give it 5-7 years...he will find that he's not making that much cash from his shows/records and they will do a reunion tour and cash in

But I'd be happy to see him surprise me, but I saw his solo tour before the clouds and it was weak...unlike the Dean Ween Band

Hard to say, but both of them can still pack a small crowd in most towns they show up in
That has to be worth a few grand each night?
I can't imagine that the 'boys of Freeman' are getting paid a lot
If I was a musician, that would be ideal
the bands on Kilsaly's lists might make more than a few hundred per show.  Then after food, drinks, transportation and lodging...you are paying to be on tour.

I have to imagine they were starting to make some serious bank touring for the last almost 10 years of their career.  they were always selling out venues like 930 and getting great billings on festivals 
I would imagine other than C&C they didn't make a whole lot of revenue from their albums ... but they still get some revenue on their back catalog...(unless it's like  David Lowery said and the royalty checks are less than the postage they are mailed on)


I will say Dean selling stuff on ebay was a low I didn't expect.
I also think it hurt to see them add 'formerly of Ween' to the blowtel bill


I honestly think the both of them are doing great and doing what they love
I'm fairly certain that in a few years...hopefully not ten or so.  That there is no way they won't get back together and tour their asses off. Also would have to be with Dreiwitz, Coleman and McClelland and they are about as brown as they come...honestly don't think the show would have been the same without those guys, so they are essential in my book

I understand Aaron's need to just distance himself from the group of people and a scene that almost contributed to his death. 
But that rock and rock can save a man's soul...that shit is true.
Oh yeah it can certainly kill you too, I don't deny that

Those Ween shows (while often very much fueled by drugs and alcohol by the performers/crowd) were really goofy, hard rocking, rock opera style performances. The element of comedy, absurdity and musicality is unrivaled. Everyone in the audience was a rabid fan.

It seemed like there were two kinds of people: ones who never heard of Ween and ones who were massively obsessed with Ween and seeing them live. (oh yeah there is Atomic who we owe this thread to...who doesn't fall into either)

I 100% believe they can get in that groove with out drugs and alcohol...if that is what they want to do.

So I am most definitely still down with the brown, no matter what shade.

all signs are that they're pretty broke...

dean ween can't sell out the ottobar.. ticketss were 20$... how many people go there ? 400.....that's 8000... do the math... you got to get there... you got to pay the other band members something.. you have days you have to practice before you play

i also think its a relative thing... i'm sure dean got used to the fat life.. only play 30 shows a year but they were selling out everywhere..way bigger venues....

as far as aaron..he is working at a school of rock type school in upstate new york.. i would not be surprised if those kids playing with him are his students... he could not sell out the rock and roll hotel....he's playing ramshead annapolis capacity what? 200????? he's sold less than 100 tickets one month from the show .. and they cost $20..probably the lowest priced show you'll see at that venue..

my guess is they blew through their ween years money and are basically both starting from scratch....otherwise you don't sell your guitars! i also bet there are legal issues between them which mean that things like reissues/t shirts/ merch have basically come to a standstill.. the chocodog store is looking rather bare...so much less income on that front....

i have not bought a ticket for aaron because getting up there means having to leave where i live so early that i don't know what i'd do with my kids... its a real beatch getting to that place- which i love- from northern va...

basically its a shit show..very sad.

it makes me sad that unless there is a last minute trek by people from philly/penn area (ween stronghold)  it looks like Aaron is going to be playing to a half full venue.. a tiny half full venue...

if i could get there I would but its looking very unlikely because traffic is generally so bad...

i had a dream the night before last that a WEEN show was announced for the 930 but it basically was Aaron playing with his band... and then Dean playing with his band...weird..

I have an "appointment" that day, so I'll be catching the show.

It's just a terrible booking in general. A Wednesday in the middle of winter in Annapolis. I'd estimate that there were probably 250 or so people at the R+R Hotel show, right? I'd imagine that's basically the same fanbase that would go see this. My partner is not a Ween fan at all but enjoys the solo album as well as the mellower acoustic Ween tunes, so we'll make a night out of it.

soon Deaner is going to be hawking stuff cause he needs a new toilet plunger..


Hi all---we're doing another blast of poster and print sales from my personal collection. I need the money to get a new compressor--my UA 1176 took a dump yesterday and we start tracking on June 27th. What does all this mean? Buy a poster, I'll sign it for you, or if you want DNA I can pee on it or bleed on it too, but that costs extra.

Yea... kind of cool he did that, however, Gener doesn't have the luxury of a bottomless bank account for rehab/detox. Trey's arrest was a blessing in disguise for getting sober. Gener is hardly scraping by, so financially I'm not sure how much worse it could be/get. If he's not willing to get back together at this point, I doubt it will happen.

Also, when you have guys like this in your band, they're surely not putting your sober wishes at the top of their priorities.

^^I liked the Bill Murray one better^^

They played pretty much all of the really heavy Ween that you'd expect Deaner to play as well as some other choice classic Ween tunes but you could tell they were completely going through the motions. It was pretty similar to the show with Guy Heller but with more Ween tunes.

Glenn for whatever reason didn't show up (and it wasn't acknowledged), so there were no keys. Claude seriously looked angry to be there the entire evening. There were no hijinx, no one getting drunk on stage, and in general a pretty depressed undertone to the evening. As expected, Deaner's amp blew out at some point during the show and he mentioned a few times that he was just getting over food poisoning. I thought maybe he'd ask for some cash to fix the amp?

In all my years of going to the club, I've never seen it that empty. I bet there were 100/150 people there max and I'm sure that didn't help the energy for the evening. They walked out on stage and it was basically **crickets** and a few dudes yelling for Deaner. Just weird... All I could think about was a decade ago you couldn't move in that place seeing these guys and now they're a bit of an embarrassment. The entire upstairs was empty.

It was a bit of a let down and any of the Gener shows I've seen post break up have been better (at least in my opinion).

I doubt they'll ever roll back through DC after last night.

That ottobar show was definitely not going through the motions, they looked like they were having a blast
I would have liked it more if Guy wasn't there though

I was really surprised that 9:30 picked them up too for this show
must have pulled a favor with seth...who I'm sure looking at the nights recipts is regretting that decision
(Aug was a pretty slow month for the club I noticed)

do love some Big Jilm though

well guess Glenn McClelland is no longer in the DWG

Now seems like as good of a time as any to announce that our new keyboard player is Harry Waters, and yes, he is the son of Roger Waters and plays in his father's band as well as doing a million other gigs. I didn't choose him based on his family tree, but for his skills as a keyboard player and he's absolutely a bad motherfucker where that's concerned. We just completed a few days of rehearsal for the upcoming tour and we even did a small preview set at John and Peter's tonight. It's so exciting--it gave me the opportunity to revisit some older/ never been played before songs, and more importantly, a fresh approach to songs we've played a lot, but with the keyboard sounds more loyal to the album versions. It has been quite the kick in the ass that I didn't even know I needed. Super nice dude, incredible player, I can't wait to take this to the stage. Remember this post--it has me rejuvenated like a first time musician and I am chomping at the bit for you all to hear what we're doing. Harry is one of the biggest Ween fans I've ever met as well---he knows all of the songs!

I don't like to tell the public what goes on behind the scenes---it ruins it i think. But so many people want to know why Glenn isn't doing the tour--it's because he got an offer to do more shows with Blood Sweat and Tears, something that happens regularly but he usually gets a substitute. The guy he had lined up backed out and Glenn has been with them longer than with us---like 30 years. And there it is. - DWG

I guess Deaner is out of stuff to raffle and Gener, well, either he's back on the sauce or he got tired of playing to 50 people at cocktail clubs...

If this reunion happens- under these terms- it will reek of such a sad sack of failure I'm not sure I can bring myself to even go!!

I bet Gener is completely broke and still sober...however, falling off the wagon is imminent!

What makes it a failure? It's a failure that they failed post-Ween and then got back together or a failure of Gener sticking to his guns?

I'd say the demand is a tad higher than normal, so they should strike while the iron is hot. The last time they played DC was at DAR, not the club... That was 07' or 08', I can't recall.

No idea? I think that tells you a lot about how it sold....I could see them passing on DC entirely.. they have done so many times....in the 1990s they always hit DC.. .in the 2000s no longer.... I think they only played 3-4 shows that decade in DC...3 times at the 930 and once at DAR...meanwhile they started playing places like Colorado over and over and over again..

Dave D may be the hardest working bassist in rock.

I find it interesting he'll be playing the 930 club with JRAD just a few days before the Ween reunion gigs... maybe he won't be playing this run of JRAD shows?

EDIT: Well, there's the answer. That kinda sucks.

"When Boognish calls, you answer. As one could assume, it is quite difficult to wrangle the schedules of the five members of Almost Dead with all of the different projects, bands and family commitments. These freshly announced February dates had been on the books for a while when Dave got the call that WEEN (holy shit!) was possibly getting back together in Colorado. We couldn?t be more excited for Dave and Ween.

Rest assured, Dave?s post will be kept warm in the fully capable hands of Mr Jon Shaw (Shakey Graves, Cass McCombs). Jon is an incredible musician and much like our dear Dave, one hell of a human being. We are super excited for Dave. We?re super excited for our Feb shows! We?re just plain excited all around. Thanks all, for the incredible support!"

Many = twice, and that was over a decade ago, however, I think they would sell it out in a heart beat depending on how extensive a tour is, if they have one.

At this point, they're playing all hamband festivals and Denver/NYC. If nothing is announced closer to DC by the time the NYC shows take place, imma gonna go up there for a show or two*.

*assuming Gener/Deaner are both still alive by then and the previous shows aren't a joke.

Title: Re: Ween worst band ever? Discuss your thoughts about how awful Ween is here.
Post by: hutch on February 04, 2016, 09:56:06 am
i hate to be a bum ride but I don't think we are going to get a DC show....the new normal for reunions seems to be:

festival festival festival.as many as you can get..
multi night residency where more of core base is located.. in ween's case seems to be colorado and nyc... the west coast people travel to colorado the east coast people are to travel to nyc


and if you're lucky a few smaller scale shows.... later on after there is no more festival money left to take..


exactly what the Replacements did except they welched out on the last show or two of the smaller dates.. those are for the fans..the real money is in the festivals and the multi night stands

now if ween decides they like playing together and mickey and aaron (and aaron's wife) are all on good terms and aaron is not turning into a junkie again then maybe they will decide to play more shows and do a DC show but otherwise i don't think so....  even if they remain on good terms and want to keep playing nothing prevents them from not doing DC and other shows and just wait to be offered to be on festivals again next year..

moreover, given their history with the DC market...how many shows has ween actually played in the DC area (not counting baltimore)  since 2001 at the 930??? I am thinking THREE.. two at the 930 and one at DAR...for some reason at some point DC no longer became an area they played regularly.. I'm not sure why.... so I dont' think DC is a major market for them....add in the fact 10 people showed up for Dean Ween band, Gener did not sell out RNR Hotel etc...
Title: Re: Ween worst band ever? Discuss your thoughts about how awful Ween is here.
Post by: hutch on February 04, 2016, 10:07:00 am
I mean it makes sense.. when bands do reunions its almost always for the money.. so you want to make the most money possible on a per show basis FIRST.. then maybe if you're feeling it a bit you say "well, is it worth it for me to do more shows for less money......knowing I'll be jeopardizing my chances for bigger shows -if i want them- next year and knowing i'll end up maybe even having to play some of the same venues I was playing back in the day?"

Pavement when they did their reunion, for example, did not come back and play the 930...

now in Ween's case you have the added wrinkle of Aaron's addiction(s)... I think with that in mind the chances of a real tour are pretty limited.. more like in and out clean- pun intended- scattered shows...

this is where not having a festival kills us because they could have done a Virgin Freefest...they would have been a natural fit..

I think it's already been said, but my guess is they'll ensure they don't die, kill each other, etc... over the summer and then blast into a full scale tour for the fall.

My assumption there will be ustream, Mixlr, or periscope... quality will be determined by how drunk the pear shaped wook that's operating the cell phone is.

It really was so good... i can only hope everyone's health remains above average... Gener looks a few burgers away from a heart attack (my assumption is he compensates for his soberness now with lots of anti depressants, cigarettes, and milk shakes). Basically 9 hours of solid rock and roll over three nights. Not many bands can do that. I hope to catch a Lockn set again this summer! I'm sure if they can continue to survive off the festival circuit plus a few three nights runs a year, that may be a good fit for them.

I think everyone is free to do what they want.. I just think that once you have smoked and drank and drugged for a long time .. and done them together.. they become linked.... so I feel like if you're giving up alcohol and drugs- and its been a serious problem for you- you really would be well advised to give up smoking too....

but then sometimes I think everyone needs something to hang on to...

You serious, Clark? Let the guy have some smokes!

There was no drinking on stage by any of the members for the past six shows, which says at least a little bit about trying to keep the Gener sober.

Deaner looked like he ran a marathon he was so hosed down in sweat, yet was just sucking away at cigs all night.

seems easier than multi city tours over a long period of time.... let's say a few multi night runs a year (cap it at 10) and 10 festival appearances. I think that's a pretty healthy way for a band to live vs. touring non stop, living on the road, the constant temptation of droogz, etc.

the no alcohol on stage was surely a stipulation of gener's people when they were negotiating....i wonder if gener has one room and the rest of the band has another where they sit around going party hardy..

Penn Landing is on a sunday.. i find that show somewhat appealing particularly since i could spend the weekend at my sisters and see my nieces...but i have too much on my plate right now and need an infusion of capital to fund the little that is left of my rockn'roll lifestyle.. how do i afford my rockn'roll lifestyle? i don't.

but maybe if the show does not sell out i will get a ticket.. it has mucho macho appeal to me right now....

They've done that for all of their other festivals in the past, however, I could see ticket sales for this one being a bit higher than past, so who knows. Typically not announced until about a week before hand either.

Sidehatch you're going to Ween!
 

Order Details:
Order # 33-54519/PHI: US $55.00 Print Receipt opens in a new window ?1 Ticket: Section GA7



Very niiiiice... I've seen Ween there before, fun place. I have to say though, I'm pretty sure I have full blown tinitus after last weekend (and the show didn't even seem that loud). My left ear is f'd up and I completely forgot ear plugs. Ugh.

deaner posted this today


I have a cool story, a really cool story. Until a certain period I never played steel stringed acoustic guitars, only classical, unless I was using one of Aaron's on a recording. so Aaron and I are in Rockland, Maine writing "White Pepper" in 1999 and we take a day off to drive to Portland, where we encounter an incredible vintage guitar shop. He had his eye on a $3k D-28 and I wanted a 1969 Martin classical guitar, but it's rough and very expensive--$3k as well actually. The tag said "needs a lotta work". We both buy them with our recording budget. I use mine on Bananas and Blow, She's your baby, etc and it's slowly getting unplayable. Turns out it's super rare, they made 13 that year, one of which is owned by Willie Nelson, a Martin N-20, also known as "Trigger". Fast forward to now and Ween has a great relationship with Martin, they are massive fans. When they take my guitar for repair they almost shit----they've never seen another like it---it's one of a kind---possibly worth a 100 thousand bucks. The tuners are shaped like BUTTERFLIES. It took them many months of work to get it back to me but it just showed up---I think willie and I have probably the only 2 surviving N-20s from the first year of production. bad ass.

that was a great read... evidently ween never jammed with prince..

I sometimes have had the same thought as Deaner: leave his vault alone... you know they're going to fuck it up..unless Prince left instructions which I'm sure he did not as he did not even leave a will (they say_)

Not because you're a skinthinned wannabe-bully with a long track-record of dishing things out but not being able take them or anything like that, but for completely other reasons altogether.

you're just wrong... and its sad that you can't see that..

there was nothing thin skinned about my reaction to you bringing up my kids on this forum and continually talking aobut how i was the worst father and the hovel they grow up in... you crossed the line and the moderator and seth felt the same way.. you sent me a wisecracking "apology" including my kids names, ages, car license plate, home address and alluding to other personal facts about my life that you found on the internet... its not thin skinned to say that is beyond what is acceptable on this forum...you even made reference to my child's autism which i thought was REALLY beyond the pale... you then wrote on the board that your apology was a joke (you then thought better and erased that)

your actions were completely inappropriate and if I'd wanted you banned- believe me Julian- you would have been banned..

Are you only going to LockN on Friday? 

I'm tempted to make the drive.  It's been a few years since I last saw Phish and I have never seen Ween.

Yes sir, just doing Friday. No way on earth I could pass up that back to back combo. I wish I could stay longer but just ain't in the cards.

Too bad Ween, Umphrey's McGee, Phish, My Morning Jacket, Phil Lesh & Friends, Galactic, and the Wailers are not all on the same day... I will have to make a game time decision if I want to pay $140 to essentially just see Phish and Ween.

I would go on Thursday if I didn't have a family. I bet it will be fun.. not that many people there..still get to see Ween which is all I care about...

Note about The Wailers be forewarned I have realized ocassionally they play shows without the only "Wailer" in the band the bass player Aston Familyman Barrett...

If you can go for more than one day, I'd wait until later next week and scoop up a ticket. I'd be willing to bet you can score a ticket for $200 or less for the entire festival by mid next week.

If you can't go more than one day, please disregard this post.

Don't you attend shows all of the time while having a family? How is this different? You'd be home basically at the same time as driving to Richmond or Cville for a show.

I think to get there in time I'd have to leave DC at 4ish....I mean its a hike...

I don't attend shows in Richmond or Cville except on very rare occasions...

only $55 to see them in Phily (Actually tix going for $30 on craigslist in phily)

So what's the consensus on set times
I'm sure it will be 2.5-3 hour show
ticket says 8PM
so they go on at 9?

Yeah, you'll get a barn burner 30 to 35 song set (assuming a monster storm doesn't roll through like last night).

Good luck with the drive!

But they were losing money like you do fat-hate posts...so that was a bigger factor

You know what pisses me off more than anything, is when people win stuff like two 4 day passes to lock in which people would kill for or would love to have won that I'm sure because they couldn't afford it or something like that was a lot for them to try to do but they would have done it if they could just could have won those tickets.  But this person decides to do what any American would do and have some stupid excuse of why they can't go, like my personal favorite, "family emergency " and sells it.

Thursday they played a shit set if you're not a Ween fan... I can guarantee they didn't add any new fans on Thursday evening. It was abrasive, noisey, obnoxious... but oh so good.

Friday's day time (Festival Set hutch) definitely appealed to the masses, however, I'm sure anyone that was there Thursday night skipped Friday's show if they were put off.

I saw Ween at Riot Fest in Denver.....they killed it. 

It had been a LONG time since I saw them.  First was probably 1990, it was just the two of them, all the rhythm section stuff was canned.  2nd time was maybe a year later, with Andrew Weiss and Sim Cain on bass/drums. 

Fast forward 25 years....so good.  So fun.

its all about money as it has been since the reunion started....obviously we are to deduce they are not being offered the money for DC that they desire... DC was a huge Ween market in the early days but in the 2000s post White Pepper they did not hit it that often..I hate to say it but it may no longer be a natural DC show... being 2 hours and change from Philly they probably feel diehards would trek up there and this cannibalizes some of the DC demand..Also if we truly take stock how did we do with the Dean Ween Band show at the 930 or the Gene Ween show at RNR Hotel?

Their 04 and 05 shows sold out the club... then for whatever dumb reason they plaed DAR in maybe 08 which I was able to get basically a front row ticket for like $15.

I'm not disagreeing with your logic above, but if they want to strike while the iron is at least warm, they should play here real soon! If they can't sell out one or two nights at the club, that would be pretty sad. We'd pull people from Bawlmoor, Richmond, and beyond.

I guess I'm assuming another spattering of weekend shows throughout next year + festivals.

Without doing Google, I don't know the answer to the fluffy question but in my opinion it's an OK song that really caught on, to Elder drug heads back in the day, who thought it was one of those hierarchy songs that meant something important, but when you really think about it, it's just alwight.

I get more turned on if they play pollo asado, live.

I don't wish to attend that show but I do like the idea of you playing my social secretary and go-between with other boardies. Follow up with Walkie about getting with me about firming up the details for Monday and also check and see if Sweetcell has determined his availability yet.

This ain't your first rock and roll show sidemollusk, it's not like this is a Ryan Adams show and half the attendees will be sitting instead of standing. I'd much rather have this set up than a packed to the gills sold out club show.

The password is mollusk.

Never go lawn...but unless you want "good" pavilion seats, I'd imagine you'd be able to get seats for cheap as the show gets closer.

I'm starting to think atomicfront is real

http://boards.baltimoreravens.com/profile/80723-atomicfront/

his comment about the moderators is textbook
Someone on here linked to his account on an Orioles' messageboard before too.

TAN - I was thinking about this earlier in the week: we have a weird obsession with the idea that posters are alteregos for other boardies. Myself included, I've floated this idea before. Atomic, bob72, sgoldberg08, etc. And what is weird about this trope is that we bring it up constantly and question new people and still debate Atomic being real or not and yet we -- as a community -- have never actually had an alterego account on here. Its quite strange, almost Trumpian, how diligent we are about something that has never actually happened.

Right, and I've also accused other new accounts of being alter-egos. I'm part of the problem. The thing is, we've never actually had an alter-ego account. If we had, our constant sniffing out of alter-egos would make sense. But we haven't, which makes it weird as hell.

Moral of the story... never purchase tickets in advance for washed up rockers.

In all seriousness, the good seats are legitimately gone, but if you wanted to get into that show for $13.43, you probably will be able to.

I couldn't be happier with the venue choice, but they in reality should be playing a sold out packed to the gills 930 club. What's strange is that in certain markets; Chicago, Denver, San Fran, etc... they've sold out 5kish venues in a heartbeat. Oh well.

it's crazy if you look what is available on ticketbastard...I'd say almost 60% of the seats in the pavilion are not even sold yet!

I think this should have been a natural DC show...in DC they would have done allright..Baltimore is kind of a dump riot ridden city without too many people..I do enjoy the less pretentious vibe up there but all the shows there seem to never draw well.. just last year I went to see all kinds of acts for free at Ramshead Live cause they just can't fill the place no matter what so they wallpaper it..

never saw the bow-tied one
did hang with Hutch and Yada just a few rows from the front

solid set...and hutch snagged me Claude's drum stick, so that was a nice souvenir
I'm so glad that Gabriel made it to the setlist

wasn't really a bad thing, but only a single song encore.
back in the day, their encores were just so much fun and almost as long as some bands full sets

crowd up front was really into it and the security didn't care if you had a lawn seat, you could go where you wanted (as we know they barely sold any of the 300s section)

yeah... this band just gets better and better and the four shows I've seen since the break up have been all damn near perfection, last night was no different. I do worry a bit about Gener's health or lack there of, he's quite portly and looks a few big macs/shakes shy of a heart attack.

Great catchin' up with you fellow boardies. My head hurts today. I forgot my "good" ear plugs but picked up a pair at CVS right before walking into the show, they definitely saved me.

Ok, Ok . . . I admit it.  I never went to the ween show.  I had to give my ticket to a friend, who had never heard of ween but had always wanted to go to a concert at pier six.  he, fucking hated it and thought they were awful, which I found funny, but it was free, so he did not care.  plus he used the money he would have spent on the ticket, to score something at the show, that he would not tell me about.

sorry, I never told the truth.  it hurt.  I was ashamed.  I was hoping to hear it was a shitty show, like the show before the pier six show was, which I heard was the worst ween show ever in the history of the band.  but alas, yada burst that bubble with his rave reviews, and I really didn't want to admit it then.

this, is all I will ever say on the matter.

the, end.

well the only connection I see is that Phish started playing Ween's Roses are Free around 1997 and stretched it out up to 35 minutes...so Phish fans got introduced to Ween....I can't say most Ween fans I know- and i know a few- are too into Phish..

From chocolate to white pepper it is perfect for me...one of the stronges, longest and most consistent runs...


I cannot stand quebec...the rot set in there..i tried again with quebec before the pier 6 show...what a let down album...like

Rush. -  hold your fire
new order - republic
cure - wild mood swings
gnr - use your illusions

and other albums i wanted to love by bands i was really into that lost their mojo.

FAct it is hard to maintain a run...ween did it as good as anyone....

That's only a three album run, which really isn't that long...

I'd add Pure Guava pre Chocolate and Cheese as well as White Pepper... I don't get your hate of Quebec (Zoloft, Transdermal Celebration, Tried and True, Happy Colored Marbles, Chocolate Town, and The Argus are all classics), but I'd argue to add that to the list which would make this a six album run of perfection!

94 C&C (I have never liked Spirit of 76 tho...)
96 12 GCG
97 Mollusk
99- Paintin' the town brown (I know it's just a live album, but one of the best and showed how awesome their live show was)
2000 - WP
2001 - Live in Toronto (great live set durring 12 GCG era)

Stubs live was good, but at that point I'd had enough
Quebec - it has a few good songs...would have made a solid 5 song EP

But they lost their mojo around 2003...and as far as recorded material...have yet to get it back
but with such an awesome live show and a back catalog from 92-2000 they have 100 songs they can play

Saw them live between 96-2003 about 7 times and every show was fantastic
shows recently have been fun, but just not the same 2+ hour boozy/druggy afair it was back then

That 20 year mollusk article was GREAT!
some great lines in there
The fact that we were on shrooms or liquid kinda goes without saying throughout the entire record. I cant really remember.

We knew we had to have amazing artwork to go with this record. ... We thought of Storm Thorgerson from Hipgnosis, who did Dark Side Of The Moon, the Zeppelin records, and all the Floyd records. ... When Storm heard the record, he personally called me and said, I didnt know such a band existed.

I couldn't agree with Storm more

Did you read the Claude interview above?

I think part of the blame is Gener's wife (at the original break up), however, there is obviously some animosity between Gener/Deaner and the addition of major drug/alcohol problems doesn't help things.

If you truely think about really any bad that's been together for even 10+ years, imagine working with the same person/people for nearly 30 years. I'm sure it takes a pretty big toll. At any rate, until the playing is impacted, I'll be there with bells on.

Still need a hutch/yada pilgrimage to New Hope for an evening with Deaner.
