at Roy Wilkins Auditorium
Thursday, 09/15/16, 6:30pm ($50 / $69.50)
The Roy Wilkins Auditorium has a pretty strict no camera policy. If you have a camera pass, you actually get kick out of the venue after three songs, so you can’t really see the rest of the show.
Anyway, Gene and Dean Ween are back, newly reunited as Ween, proving that they haven’t quite push the little daisies just yet.
The reunion was announced last year (November 2015), for shows in February 2016. Throughout 2016, they announced sporadic shows, with St Paul being one of the few shows.
With nine albums under their belt (their last release was 2007’s La Cucaracha), expect a healthy singalong audience as they sing all the classics.

Legendary punk band The Descendents is back next Thursday at First Avenue’s mainroom. The show is sold out.
The band originally formed in the late 70s, but since 1986, the band’s lineup is more consistent, featuring singer Milo Aukerman, guitarist Stephen Egerton, bassist Karl Alvarez, and drummer Bill Stevenson.
The band’s seventh album Hypercaffium Spazzinate (released on Epitaph Records) still has their iconic cartoon singer Milo (who first appeared on their debut album Milo Goes to College).
