Echo & the Bunnymen + Violent Femmes
Time Out says
Ian McCulloch's Echo & the Bunnymen, the influential British gloom-pop troupe behind hits such as “The Killing Moon” and “Lips Like Sugar,” and Milwaukee folk-punk trio Violent Femmes hit town on their co-headlining tour. Expect a show laden with hits and peppered with selections from the bands' most recent offerings (Echo & the Bunnymen's Meteorites and Violent Femmes' We Can Do Anything). The Femmes are cooking up a new album, so chances are they'll try out some fresh material here, but doubtless the high point will be the collective mania unleashed by the opening lick of "Blister in the Sun."
