Ween, being the true musical geniuses they are, have something for everyone: the seemingly serious songs, the whacked-out crazy tracks, and those songs that seem to conform to the conventions of rock 'n' roll before tearing the whole thing apart. Which are all reasons why they've collected a dedicated fan base in the 20-plus years Dean and Gene have been together. The gymnasium-like accommodations of the Roy Wilkins is the perfect venue for this visit to the Twin Cities, unlike the seated confines of their last show at the Orpheum in 2006—a show that was perfect, but could have gained just that much more from even a little more room to move. Even though their last release, La Cucaracha, came out in the fall of last year, could there be a better time than the summer for a Ween show? Break out that Boognish T-shirt and get ready for one of the best shows of the season.
