After a quarter century of being Gene Ween, Aaron Freeman opted to branch out on his own, effectively sending the iconic band he co-fronted with Michael Melchiondo, Jr. (aka Dean Ween) out to pasture this past spring. While this news no doubt sent many a Ween fanatic out wandering aimlessly in traffic, all is not lost, friends. There's a silver lining to this Marvelous Cloud. Freeman returns to Colorado this weekend for a pair of dates, tonight at the Fox Theatre and another show tomorrow night at the Bluebird Theater. We've got a pair of tickets for each show, and we'd love for you and a guest to be our guest. Continue on for your chance to win.
