Ween Rocks Out In First NY Show In Two Years

Ween played its first New York show in nearly two years Saturday (Aug. 20) at the Knitting Factory as part of a private party for the skateboarding magazine Thrasher. The 28-song, 135-minute set was open only to Thrasher guests and a select group of contest winners.
