Setlist / Photos / Video: The Pod Featuring Dean Ween @ Tonic Room 2/4/14
Ween’s Mickey Melchiondo (aka Dean Ween) has made Chicago a regular stopping place these days. First, he dropped in unexpectedly with The Pod, our local Ween tribute band in September. Then, he found himself at Cubby Bear with his Moistboyz project in December.
On February 4th, The Pod was billed with a VERY SPECIAL GUEST as a part of Tonic Room’s 11th anniversary series for both an early and a late show. Tickets were $35 and available only at Tonic Room. Guess who it was?
Yup. Deaner sat in for two big (sold-out) sets creating an off-the-wall atmosphere in the tiny Lincoln Park club touching on Ween material from their entire career.
