Dean Ween

As you probably know, New Jersey was hit really hard during Hurricane Sandy and in an effort to help one of the victims, Dean Ween (aka Mickey Melchiondo of Ween) is hosting a benefit concert in Asbury Park (home of the Stone Pony which did survive the storm). Dean writes...

Like a lot of people I know it's hard to figure out where to best donate money and resources right now. To this end I've just arranged a benefit concert for my good friend Nick Honachefsky who lost his home and all of his worldly possessions in the storm. I'm hosting a benefit concert at the Saint in Asbury Park, NJ on Sun Nov. 11 Wed, Nov. 28--"Dean Ween and Friends" featuring Claude Coleman, Glenn McClelland, Chris Harford, Dickie Moist, and the all of the usual suspects to help Nick get back on his feet. The evening will feature new music and old music by Moistboyz, Chris Harford, Jimmy Wilson, members of Ween, etc. More specific details to follow. Also, there is a fund set up for Nick at this address.
Dean is also working on his first solo album, which will feature Josh Homme, Nick Oliveri, Guy Heller, Claude Coleman, Chuck Treece, Dave Dreiwitz, Glenn McClelland, Joe Kramer, Andrew Weiss, Joe Russo, Scott Metzger, and more guests that he's worked with over the years. In addition to featuring on the album, Josh Homme is also producing it. The above picture is of Dean Ween at the recording sessions for his new album with Joe Kramer and Chuck Treece (via Facebook).

UPDATE: The date of this benefit has changed.

Ween is so great. Ween fans are so annoying.
