Agreed. Worst major live act I've ever seen.

they were awesome at warsaw last time.

Past their prime for sure, but a fun time regardless. The Femmes may be milking their past success, but they are still better than many bands today.

I saw these guys last fall at Warsaw and it was pretty great. They played forever. And had probably 15 extra people on stage. Wasboard player. Tuba-ist. The energy was totally infectious and, yeah, a lot of hits, but isn;t that what people are paying to hear when they go see ANY of these only 5-year-old bands that come around. I mean, WTF is everyone so excited about Crowded House for? The new stuff?

Hedgehog is totally right^^^.
The Femmes are freaking awesome live.
They have probably have like 20+ songs that get the crowd dancing and jumping, both young and old alike. Their songs are classics:
Blister in the Sun
Add It Up
Gone Daddy Gone
Kiss Off
American Music
Prove My Love
Country Death Song...
Bands like Arcade Fire, Clap Your Hands and Tapes and Tapes owe alot of their live show to the Femmes.

Awesome band..haven't seen them live, maybe I'll go to this show.

Posted by Marlon | May 15, 2007 4:11 PM

Yeah... "American Music" is a great song!

Posted by Mark B. | May 15, 2007 6:38 PM

violent femmes are a great american band. and people used to actually DANCE at their shows, not stand around stroking their beards and text messaging their friends.

And LOL @ 5-year-old bands....son, you got some history to learn. The Femmes have been around since the 80s.

you guys are crazy & your ears are dead. great american band, indeed. great live band as well.

Fuck you, you never like American Music, you hated Bob Dylan 40 years ago and I think you were wrong in assuming he was no good. He's 112 years old and he still sells out shows. God Damn Redcoats.

Violent Femmes have the greatest Bass player alive. Brian Ritchie is just amazing, truly the finest bassist going today.......

Violent Femmes have been a part of my life for 22+ years. They are awesome, always have been, always will be. When are they coming back to Portland, OR?
