Anyway... the Violent Femmes. Woohoo! I loved this band in the 80s. I was obsessed with songs like Add It Up, Blister in the Sun, and Kiss Off. Later, after I moved to the US, I also got acquainted with their other work. Overall I really like their sound. I can't quite decide what genre they belong in, though.
We had front row center seats! Close enough to see their nose hairs! LOL. Drummer Victor de Lorenzo was right in front of me.
They put on a good show. All of them look like aging suburban dads, so when they first walked on stage I was a bit skeptical. But any doubt in my mind was blown away as soon as they started playing. They were all awesome! Especially if you closed your eyes, to get rid of the incongruity of seeing middle aged men on stage and hearing rockin' 80s music through the speakers.
We had a great time. Woo hoo! I saw the Violent Femmes in concert! From front row center!!!
