The starving masses were finally satiated on Sunday when Ween took “Pollo Asado” off the shelf for the first time since 2017. The concert at The Fillmore Silver Spring in Maryland marked the Boognish’s final appearance of the year, closing out a three-night, two-city run that began on Friday in Philadelphia. The band’s final show of 2022 also saw a 15-year bust-out of “Flies on My Dick”.

Following a two-night run at The Met Philly on Friday and Saturday, Ween reshuffled the deck for Sunday’s show. The band once again touched on classics like “Buckingham Green”, “Piss Up A Rope”, “Take Me Away”, “Gabrielle”, “Touch My Tooter”, “The Golden Eel”, and several other favorites that also appeared in Philly.

A little over halfway through the 35-song concert, Gene Ween (Aaron Freeman) must have gotten hungry so he pulled up a stool and went for a walk on the beach to find some tacos, burritos, chimichangas, and quesadillas. The hazy spoken word track from The Pod had not appeared since February 17th, 2017 at Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas, per Brownbase.

Further on down the setlist, Ween once again reached back to its lo-fi, four-track roots with Pure Guava‘s “Flies on My Dick”. As Dean Ween (Mickey Melchiondo) eeked out the song’s mumbling lyrics, a wave of realization could be heard washing over the audience. Playing the song live for the first time since August 10th, 2007 at Stubb’s Bar-B-Q in Austin, Deaner fretted the demonic circus-like guitar lead on his recently unshelved Alembic guitar for a quick, sub-two-minute telling.

The four-song encore began with a jovial “Waving My Dick in the Wind” before the bad trip combination of “Licking the Palm for Guava” and “Mushroom Festival in Hell”. In the end, it was bassist Dave Dreiwitz who got the last word by belting out Motörhead‘s “Ace of Spades” to close the show, the run, and Ween’s touring year.
