‘Ween in Boston means one thing: scores of local outfits using Samhain as an excuse to go full cover band—if only for one night. Speaking of nights: this one! At Great Scott! With Oasis (The Luxury), The Stooges (New Highway Hymnal), LCD Soundsystem (Color Channel), and The Knife (Ruby Ridge). That’s eight bands for the price of four … yeah? Whatevs. Point is: nothing is more in the ‘Ween spirit than local acts getting a little less serious and a lot more fabulous, clothes-wise.
That, and vomiting up pumpkin beer and candy corn.
