New Hope rockers Ween continued their final run of 2017 on Thursday night with the first of two shows at Stubb’s in Austin. The band played a number of songs that had gone missing over the past few runs and also teased an obscurity, which has never been performed live.
The five-piece opened with “Marble Tulip Juicy Tree,” which returned after a 17-show layoff. Next came a run of “The HIV Song,” “Happy Colored Marbles” and “Light Me Up” ahead of the first “She Wanted To Leave” since July. Later in the set the group teased “Put Your Boobs On,” an unreleased song from the White Pepper sessions of which a recording circulates among fans.
Ween loaded the rest of the 28-song performance with fan-favorites including “I’ll Be Your Johnny On The Spot,” “Big Jilm,” “The Argus,” “Don’t Shit Where You Eat,” “The Grobe” and “Gabrielle” as well as more rare material such as “Seconds,” “Sweet Texas Fire” and “Frank.” For the encore, Ween treated the crowd to “Squelch The Weasel” and “Sorry Charlie,” both of which hadn’t been performed since July, and “Buckingham Green.”
Tonight, Ween concludes the year with another show at Stubb’s.
