Violent Femmes And X
June 5 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM$42.50 – $75
With its self-titled, platinum-selling 1983 debut album, the Violent Femmes instantly became one of the most inventive and surprising bands of the era, brandishing a singular blend of folk and punk, sarcasm and spirituality, which made brilliant stories of anguish, shame and lust into hilariously dark tragicomedies on songs like “Blister in the Sun,” “Kiss Off,” and “Add It Up.” Seven albums later, in 2000, they took a long break — only to return with a vengeance with 2016’s We Can Do Anything, a record as sharp as their best and most iconic work. The Femmes remain one of the most exciting live bands on the planet. L.A. punk icons X, led by vocalist-bassist John Doe and guitarist Billy Zoom, will play a fierce and savage opening set.
