Freeman marks a new chapter in the life of Aaron Freeman (aka Gene Ween). Arriving at this place in his career meant getting sober and disbanding Ween. Freeman's new self-titled release is a soul-searching, soul-cleansing, fistful of songs and marks a new beginning for the fiercely popular underground artist. The album still burns with the Ween quirk amidst a new found placidity and peace.
Freeman performs with Arc Iris and The Isotopes on Friday, September 19, at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Place. 8 p.m. $20-$25. Lovincup.com.
