Ween Live At The Capitol Theatre, New York

Written by:

Look, I love Ween.

I love them so much that even after a hectic week of work and another one looming, there was no way I was going to miss their Sunday night show at the Capitol Theatre (December 16).

I’m so glad I didn’t.

The reinvigorated Pennsylvania outfit fronted by Dean and Gene Ween have never sounded better. After close to 35 years together, Ween are arguably at the top of their game. A delicious blend of post-punk, twisted folk, idiosyncratic indie rock and low-fi soul, Ween’s sonic attack has always been varied and hard to categorize, which is part of their charm.

Never mind that they haven’t put out a record since 2007, the band’s back catalog gives them plenty of material to pull from.

I loved every single minute.
