Violent Femmes will be headlining the Marcus Amphitheater on June 26. Alson on the bill are The Avett Brothers. That's not all. Also playing that date are Ivan and Alyosha with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Summerfest wants to make sure that you get your money's worth that evening.
The Femmes are playing just and handful of festivals this year. The band reunited for Coachella, the weekend festival that just wrapped up. They will also play Bottle Rock Festival, and Summerfest 2013. Seeing that The Femmes usually reunite for a side stage show at Summerfest, this night will be special. They hope for a big turnout, seeing that they haven't performed in a 22,000 seat venue in many years.
Sharing the spotlight with the Femmes will be the Avett Brothers. The Avett Brothers have been supporting their latest album, titled The Carpenter. That's album number seven for these Indie Folk rockers. As opposed to the Femmes, the Avett Brothers are a working band that continues to tour and create new music. The grouping of the old and the new will surely make it a great evening of music.
