Cover Alert | Freeman Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man

Aaron Freeman, the artist formerly known as Gene Ween, played his first shows with his FREEMAN ensemble this week in NYC to celebrate the release of the group’s self-titled debut. On Tuesday at The Mercury Lounge and again at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn on Wednesday, FREEMAN’s sets featured a mix songs from the new LP along with Ween classics and rarities. Aaron even led the group through a cover of Prince’s “I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man” at both shows.

Aaron is joined by guitarist Chris Boerner, bassist Joe Young, keyboardist Dave Godowsky and drummer Kyle Keegan in FREEMAN. The band plays the Hopscotch and Lockn’ festivals in early September before embarking on an extensive fall tour.
