Aaron Freeman

Aaron Freeman (aka Gene Ween) released, Marvelous Clouds, his first solo album under his real name, this week via Partisan Records. Freeman's record release show at 92Y Tribeca tonight (5/9) is sold out, but we're giving away a pair of tickets. Details are below.

Marvelous Clouds is a tribute to famed poet and songwriter Rod McKuen, whose songs have been recorded by a lot of famous people, including Frank Sinatra and Madonna. (Terry Jacks went to #1 with his version of McKuen's "Seasons in the Sun" in 1973.) You can stream the song "As I Love My Own" at the bottom of this post.

When you're done listening, feel free to let Freeman know what you think. He's given out his phone number ([609] 542-0751) and is encouraging people to leave him messages.

Joining Freeman tonight night will be Mitch Marcus, Joe Young, Brian Fishler, and Ween sideman Dave Dreiwitz who last night (5/8) backed Michael Moore (yes, that Michael Moore) at City Winery, and who plays the Levon Helm tribute at Brooklyn Bowl on June 4.

Details on how to win tickets to the 92Y show, Aaron's only upcoming date at the moment, and the song stream below...

A true treasure to the human species. An amazing vocalist. A genius song writer. This man can make you smile like no one else and then by the next song have you mesmerized with sadness. I can think of no other musician who can cover the full range of human emotion as Aaron does. Give up some respect to Gene.

I'm sure it would be an amazing time, if only I could muster up enough energy to schlep uptown on a Wednesday!

Waste of money, waste of time. On top of being irrelevant that is.

12:24, on top of being a shit bag, you should hold hands with your favorite artist and jump in front of a bus, whilst whistling "Seasons in the Sun"...and go fuck yourself too !! :)

Fantastic show. Aaron is the best he's looked and sounded in years. Rehab did him well.
