    Just managed to also snag tickets to the Saturday San Francisco show. I hadn't been able to for the last month, the fucking page kept timing out or returning 'no results' but somehow it worked just fine today. This is fucking awesome because I assume the setlist will be pretty different between each night. Is anybody here going to either show?

    Anybody going to the Vegas shows? February 17, 18, and 19. Tickets are $62.48/ea after taxes and fees, or at least the 3-day pass is. The fees might add up to a bit more after taxes if you buy them individually. I already got my 3-day pass with the presale, tickets go on general sale tomorrow morning at 10am local time/PST.

    I probably normally wouldn't see a band 3 nights in a row, but I've never seen a band like Ween before. A band that is playing 3 nights and you already know they aren't going to repeat a single fucking song. It won't be surprising if they play 100 songs over the weekend. Being a fan of bands like NIN and Tool and seeing shows like that, this is such a crazy band to be a newcomer to. Deaner said recently they know 200 songs already.

    It's really changing my perspective of how live music and shows can and should be. As I mentioned above, I saw them for the first time in San Francisco two weeks ago and they played 58 different songs over the course of 2 nights. Tool has only played 15 distinct songs total over the course of the three times I've seen them live. I saw NIN two nights in a row in 2013, they played 25 songs each night and there were only 9 non-repeated songs each night. That means between the two nights, two-thirds of the setlist was repeats. So the shit Ween is pulling is blowing my mind.

    It seems I'm currently the only person on ETS who reallllly fucking digs Ween, but if anybody is interested, the Vegas 3-day pass presale is still going on here if you want to buy the ticket before it goes on general sale tomorrow. Password is JILM.

    Since I've seen them mentioned a couple times recently I feel the need to bump this thread. (I know...sue me.)
    Ween don't get enough credit outside of there fans. They have pretty much done it all in some form or another.

    I realize this post is almost 2 years old...

    Where I grew up, Ween was put in the same category as the Grateful Dead and Phish. The best I probably got was, "Don't they sing that meningitis song?" It was also pretty hard to put on something like The Pod and explain how these Scotchgard'ed out peeps are talented. So my excuse is, I got used to not talking about Ween because nobody cared.

    I just got into Ween about a month or so ago. After randomly watching a youtube video called "Understanding Ween" I put on The Mollusk and was hooked. I have also really enjoyed their country album, Quebec as well as the Ceasar quebec demos. The only thing that I have listened to so far that I wasn't automatically into is White Pepper. One of the things I love about them outside of the great songwriting is that there is no pretense, no agenda. Just a couple of guys in tshirts making great music.

    Have you checked out Live In Chicago yet? The setlist would probably be right up your alley.

    I formally got into Ween last Fall... What a band!

    I'll always remember them first by their appearance in the movie It's Pat, and that version of "Don't Get 2 Close (2 My Fantasy)". lol <3

    Dean Ween (especially now that he is older) kinda looks like William Murderface right?

    all the live Ween recordings should be catalogued on a level that destroys "jam band" catalogues. I am forever down with the brown

    I would love for Ween to go the LiveDownloads/nugs.net route like Metallica, Phish, etc.

    In the meantime, there's Browntracker.

    pat, excitedly telling strangers in his/her/their apartment complex: "hey, guys! i'm playing with the ween!"

    the passing strangers: "ewww! what's that?!"

    best part of that awful movie.
