There was no ambitious declaration or plan of attack from the Ween brothers as they launched into their nearly three-hour long set on Friday night for the second show of their three-night stand at the Fillmore. Unlike Thursday's show, which included early hints from Dean Ween (Mickey Melchiondo) and Gene Ween (Aaron Freeman) that the live series in Denver would set the band's all-time record for most amount of songs played in three nights, Friday's concert seemed all about showing rather than telling.
