Is the thought of paying to stand right by the stage making you crazy enough to pay a high price to dig that crazy vibe just to boogie with band? Some of us live there and while others were sent here if but for no other reason than to hold the stick that keeps you there on the edge. There are some things in American history, and in our hearts and minds, we are not proud of but they do exist just the same. Check out the site page for more concert dates. The Violent Femmes are Gordon Gano, Brian Ritchie, and John Sparrow. Hey, I want that back now.
The provocative Violent Femmes are like an intoxicating liquor. Love has left the building. Some folks spend so much time clinging and clawing on to the beginning so afraid their big toe must might even go there and touch it. But here are 10 tunes that listening audiences need to know about when it comes to this band. Remember the first time you gave yourself permission to really give it to somebody who really needed it?.
That's why Violent Femmes fans so loyal. Or do they play rock and roll? Love is so good when we are writhing and all curled up in it, and we crave it so. Feel the bumpy, pimply concrete in your back, squint from the sun. They take a piece of your heart with them every time it happens. The Violent Femmes new album We Can Do Anything was released in March 2016 and is number 184 on the Billboard Top 100 albums.
Because they play music by their own rules and not by some social standard. Did you do too many drugs too? Time to jump back into the pool again. Narrowing the band down to a list of top ten songs is not easy. We have listened to many a radio station try to fit the Femmes into some kind of music category, but what they really are is soulful, raw, defiant and eclectic. Songs and all of the memories that come with them, who knew they could tell the story of our lives.
It's kind of like trying to whittle down the Rolling Stones or Elvis. They truly stand at the heart of American music. Once you listen to them, you love them. Meanwhile, a fresh tour starts June 14 in Pittsburgh, Penn. . .
