So I just got home from Ween in Vancouver and it was definitely an interesting show... It was awesome up to a point. Buckingham Green was amazing, but just under 2 hours into the show everyone except Gene got into a huddle and then walked of the stage and didn't return. Gene seemed pretty messed up so I assume thats why they were mad (he spent an entire song on his back mumbling). He continued to play a few more songs solo and talk to the audience, asking the band to come back, before leaving the stage himself (not before a roady came on to take off some of the other instruments signaling the others weren't going to come back). There was no encore and the lights just came up after a long pause and they started to pack up. I guess we'll see what happens with their shows tomorrow night and beyond. Needless to say it was an interesting experience.

Oh wow. Sounds like you (and didn't HG go to that show?) might have gotten to witness a moment of history. Like when I got to witness poor Michael Showalter almost have a nervous breakdown when I was at Pitchfork last year.
