I have decided to do a gallery exhibit of my personal collection of Ween memorabilia. Over the years I kept everything that I accrued and kept it stored meticulously and in mint condition for most items. This includes a massive collection of gorgeous concert posters drawn by some of the most famous artists in the poster world, and from some of the world’s most famous venues, such as Red Rocks, the Berkeley Greek Theater, the Fillmore West, etc. In addition, I kept every contact sheet and print from all of our albums; we were photographed by some of the best photographers in the business, including people like Danny Clinch. This is much more than a poster sale, this is a comprehensive walk down memory lane and the showing also will include rare memorabilia such as one of a kind promotional items from the many labels we worked with around the world. These are all from my personal collection. While not all items will be on sale, I will be showing my collection of vintage Fender guitars that many people will recognize. There will be something for everyone, including original, one of a kind photo prints as well as rare and collectible import singles and vinyl albums released throughout our 25 year career, including the remaining copies of our very first record from 1988 — “The Live Brain Wedgie”, of which only 500 were ever produced. I will be on hand the duration of this 2 day showing and would be happy to sign anything if you wish, or give you the back story on how these things came to exist. This will not be a regular event, this is a one-time chance to buy your Ween fan spouse/sibling/friend the ultimate holiday gift with a story. Please join us for this fun and special occasion.
