Where Boston - - THE GUIDE -

Formed in New Hope, Pa., in the mid-’80s, Ween set about pulling off a rather re­mark­able trick. As masters of all and sundry mu­si­cal styles, the found­ing pair—best known as Dean and Gene Ween—have taken par­ody to such heights that their work is of­ten way bet­ter than the source. They’re just as likely to break your heart with a bal­lad (“It’s Gonna Be (Al­right)”) as they are to plough a Philly Soul groove (“Free­dom of ‘76”). Ge­nius. Or Wee­nius. June 11, Blue Hills Bank Pav­il­ion, 290 North­ern Ave., 617.728.1600
