Violent Femmes made an indelible mark in the early years of alternative music with beloved sing-a-long anthems like “Blister in the Sun” and “Kiss Off.” After some time, rock and roll showbiz would set in and the band took a break. But, after some uncertainty, Brian Ritchie and Gordan Gano got back together and We Can Do Anything marks their first full length release in over a decade and a half.

One thing is for sure in a live show with Violent Femmes and that’s you never know what to expect. The legendary Electric Lady Studios was the setting for an incredibly fun set from the band featuring surprise guests like Tony Trischka and Billy Ficca. Listen in for a very special show!
