The first new album in fifteen years from Milwaukee-based acoustic punk originals Violent Femmes, We Can Do Anything, finds frontman Gordon Gano’s seething angst and rueful humor undiminished—the record pulses with “the playful quirkiness, infectious beats and jittery observations of the band's earliest work.” (NPR Music) Kristin Hersh’s trenchant explorations of “rage, aggression and mental chaos” (NY Times) with Throwing Muses helped define American alt-rock in the ‘90s; now the author of six books, she remains a ferociously intense presence onstage.
Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
