Freeman, the self-titled debut from former Ween member Aaron Freeman, is a new and sober beginning for one half of the genre-bending group that for 20 years, bent ears, warped minds, got some laughs, and inspired many to not just PLAY music, but to DO Music. Freeman features uplifting tunes based on Aaron's finding his way without Ween, in the darkness, but still relying on the power of his songs and, of course, his incredible guitar playing. Leaving the world of Ween was tough, as Aaron said, but as he allegedly said about Paul McCartney, "...I thought, if he can do this, break up the fucking Beatles, I can certainly break up Ween and be okay.” Listen, if you love Ween, you'll be at this show. If you don't know Ween, find someone who does and enter a weird and wonderful world. Aaron Freeman will surely continue their remarkable legacy. Arc Iris, formerly of the Low Anthem, opens.
