Win Tickets: Voodoo Ladyboys – A Tribute to Ween + Lesser Bangs @ The Goodfoot | Rock & Roll (December 22)
When Ween shockingly called it quits in 2012, a gaping hole was left in the hearts of all who worshipped at the holy altar of the Boognish. Their end marked a devastating blow to lovers of rock, comedy, social experimentation, and all things brown. But on Halloween night of 2013, a group of Portland musicians joined together to host a black-mass resurrection of the band’s spirit at Club 21. As the night progressed, a wafting aroma of pork roll, egg and cheese began to emit from the stage amplifiers and some in attendance swear they say a spiky-haired stallion emerge from the fog machine To win, comment on this post here.
