Ween Plays Four Songs For The First Time Since Reuniting, At Riot Fest [Videos/Setlist]

first_imgOne day after the band made their return to St. Paul, MN, Ween headed down to Chicago, IL to play the first night of the famed Riot Fest. Going from a predominantly jam-oriented festival like Lockn’ to a predominantly punk/metal-oriented festival like Riot Fest is no easy feat, but Ween pulls it off with their unique style and tight musicianship.The show at Riot Fest was particularly unique, as it contained four songs that hadn’t been played since before the band’s 2012 break up. The songs “I’m Dancing In The Show Tonight,” “I’ll Be Your Jonny On The Spot,” “Marble Tulip Juicy Tree,” and “You Were The Fool” each hadn’t been played by Ween since 2011, making their inclusion all the more special. As the reunion tour continues on throughout 2016, it will be interesting to see what other songs Ween adds into the rotation!Check out some video highlights from Riot Fest, streaming below.Doctor Rock (by Hail Boognish)Marble Tulip Juicy Tree (by Hail Boognish)Check out the full Brownbase setlist, below.Setlist: Ween at Riot Fest, Chicago, IL – 9/16/16Set: I’m Dancing in the Show Tonight, The Golden Eel, Happy Colored Marbles, Baby Bitch, Doctor Rock, Touch My Tooter, I’ll Be Your Jonny on the Spot, Object, With My Own Bare Hands, Marble Tulip Juicy Tree, A Tear For Eddie, The Stallion pt 3, Zoloft, Back to Basom, The Grobe, Tick, Wayne’s Pet Youngin, Frank, You Were the Fool, Buenas Tardes Amigo– Marble Tulip with Up on the Hill lyricslast_img read more

EPL: Spurs demolish Burnley

first_imgRelatedPosts EPL: Son fires four past Southampton Trio of signings make instant impact as Everton stun Spurs EPL: Spurs, Everton light up London Heung-Min Son scored a goal-of-the-season contender as Tottenham hammered Burnley 5-0 on Saturday.The Tottenham forward picked up the ball on the edge of his own box and skipped past a flurry of challenges as he surged to the other end of the field before coolly slotting home (32) the hosts’ third of the afternoon.Spurs had already stunned their visitors with two quickfire goals – Harry Kane lashed in a stunner of his own with just four minutes on the clock before Lucas Moura (9) tucked in from close range- and hit the post through Moussa Sissoko.Tottenham’s midweek defeat at Manchester United had Jose Mourinho fielding questions about their defensive problems in the build-up to this clash but it was Burnley’s weaknesses at the back which were badly exposed inside the first 10 minutes on Saturday.Sean Dyche’s men had been hammered 4-1 by Manchester City on Tuesday and were immediately undone by a fierce strike from Kane from 20 yards.Moura doubled that advantage moments later, prodding home from barely a yard out from Dele Alli’s header after Son’s shot was saved by Burnley keeper Nick Pope and looped up off Ben Mee.Tottenham looked as though they might score with every attack during a superb opening 20 minutes, with Sissoko hitting the post after good work from Son and Alli denied by a stunning last-ditch tackle from James Tarkowski.Then, just as Burnley were beginning to find a foothold and enjoying a good chance of their own when Brady’s header somehow hit the woodwork twice and stayed out, Son produced a moment of magic.
