Taste the Waste: A Tribute to Ween 

8 p.m. Friday, August 3. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue.

When Aaron Freeman, a.k.a. Gene Ween, decided to retire his nom de rock and focus on his solo work, he ended his nearly 30-year partnership with Mickey Melchiondo (Dean Ween) and the bizarre, cultishly adored music they produced together. Members of several local bands have decided to throw Ween an Irish wake rather than a somber funeral for Taste the Waste: A Tribute to Ween. Disparate acts ranging from the Feed's keyboard-driven soul rock & roll to False Moves' dark-tinted pulses will take on the band's genre-blurring catalog. This show also marks the first time that the members of Fattback have reconvened since the 2010 death of founding member Dave Hagerty, and since there would have been no Fattback without Ween's influence, it's a fitting cause for reunion.

Piss Up a Rope: Here's hoping that our town's twang-loving bands make some hay with the 12 Golden Country Greats classics. Dock Ellis Band, we're looking in your direction.
