Violent Femmes

As mentioned, Violent Femmes will be on a big tour this summer with Barenaked Ladies that hits NYC at JBL Live at Pier 97 on July 1 (tickets). If you'd like to see the Femmes somewhere slightly more cozy, they're kicking off their tour with a headlining show at Brooklyn's Rough Trade on May 19. Tickets go on sale Friday (4/24) at noon with an AmEx presale on Thursday (4/23) at noon. Updated dates are listed below.

In other news, Violent Femmes' Happy New Year EP came out on Record Store Day which featured their first new, original material in 15 years. You can stream all four songs from the EP below.
