      Violent Femmes - X

      Legendary pioneers of folk punk in a double bil



      Description

      Before there was Americana, folk punk, or any other fusion of roots music with rock's forward edge, there were The Violent Femmes, who were discovered by Chrissie Hynde playing on the sidewalk of a Milwaukee venue where The Pretenders to appear (she invited them on stage, and the rest his history). The band has split up and reunited several times since then, and it seems as though they've found continuing demand for their music simply because in many respects the rest of the rock world still hasn't caught up with them. They come to Michigan In a once-in-a-lifetime double bill, they're joined at The Royal Oak Music Theater this evening by X, who were formed in 1977 and influenced the Femmes and lots of other bands along the way. They've passed through phases of straight punk, folk rock, neo-rockabilly, and more—and no matter what they do, they have an absolutely unmistakable sound. While other punk bands have fallen by the wayside, X is as strong as ever, and they keep expanding their musical universe.

      Cost: $40–$70
