Madison Week In Music + Ticket Giveaways (2.10-2.16): Gene Ween

Gene Ween

“For Ween fans, Aaron Freeman aka Gene Ween, playing a tiny, acoustic concert is akin to Bruce Springsteen playing a secret bar show in Jersey.” –-PopMatters.com

Well, there’s just one show this week, but it promises to pack enough fun into one evening to keep you satisfied for a long while.  Gene Ween, of the beloved alterna-indie rock band Ween, will be performing solo at the High Noon Saloon this Thursday.  As if that weren’t cool enough, Milwaukee’s accordion-slingin’ butt kickin’ Pezzettino will be kicking the evening off with her quirky, cute, and ferocious songs.  Just try to get through the night without a smile plastered on your face.  We dare ya.
