Ween, which apparently has a huge underground following, is coming to San Diego. They are not very well known in the mainstream pop music scene, but are fairly successful. They will be at the House of Blues. According to Wikipedia:
The two signed to Sanctuary Records in 2003 and released Quebec, their first studio set in 3 years. In 2004, Ween released Live in Chicago, a DVD and CD set that chronicled a compilation of three energetic live performances for which the group is known.
In 2005 they released Shinola, Vol. 1 a collection of outtakes which received some positive press, especially in Europe, which was followed up by two singles taken from the album, Monique The Freak and Gabrielle (2006).
In February of 2006, they rented an old farmhouse and converted it into a working studio. After writing over 50 songs and recording rough versions through 2006, they picked through them, and, with Andrew Weiss as producer, re-recorded album versions. As of March 2007, they are recording final versions of what they have said to be about 20 songs. On May 22, 2007 they announced they will be releasing an EP entitled “The Friends EP” on June 8th. Dean Ween said the EP will be “The ultimate party record, filled with good beats and good times. Perfect for your barbecue or doing bong hits or whatever it is that you guys do.” And also they announced the new album–entitled “La Cucaracha”– will be released October 23, 2007 on Rounder Records, placing them on the same label as fellow Alternative Rock duo They Might Be Giants
