gene ween at the tonic room

so, dave mentioned this, but about a hundred of us crammed into the tonic room friday night for an incredibly intimate evening of music with the one & only gene ween...& the guy was literally all smiles all night, giggling after each song, messing around with the crowd, doing the harmonica thing "for the first time", opening with the first tune he ever learned to play on guitar (side 1, track 1), singing a fucking acappella prince medley...it was just surreal...& i think dave summed up the night perfectly when he said after the show, "i've finally got something to tell my grandkids about"...he was serious...huge thanks again to joe c. for hooking us up...we had the best time.
