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 ( 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.
