In the cloud

Former Ween frontman Aaron Freeman’s first solo release, Marvelous Clouds, is comprised of songs originally penned by singer-songwriter/poet Rod McKuen. McKuen’s songs, once popularized by artists as diverse as Frank Sinatra and Johnny Cash, get a contemporary shot in the arm with everything from tonal experiments from the Ween days to quieter, acoustic treatments. His live shows incorporate classic numbers from the Ween discography alongside cuts from the new record, which he frequently plays in its entirety.

Saturday 12/1 $17, 9pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
