VIOLENT FEMMES STORM THE CAPITAL! Hooray! Violent Femmes return to Canberra next March for their first visit to the Australian capital since 2003!

The Milkwaukee natives will bring their timeless blend of folk, free-jazz and punk attitude to the ANU Refectory on March 9th. Tickets for this special one-off are on-sale now.

"Across roughly two hours, fans new and old got to hear more or less every song they could have wanted to hear from the band, from deeper cuts like 'Jesus Walking On The Water' and 'Life Is An Adventure' to big sing-alongs 'I Held Her in My Arms' and closing number 'American Music'. Indeed, we like all kinds of music - but if we use the Femmes as indicative of their home nation's overall sound, we like American music best, baby." - The Brag / Sydney Opera House review Dec 29 2014.

Special guests are Xylouris White; a duo from Melbourne-via-NYC featuring Cretan lute player George Xylouris and drummer Jim White of Dirty Three and Cat Power's Dirty Delta Blues.

"This transcendental folk, deconstructed by the volatile rhythms of post-rock, demands to be danced to, and when the music hit the loud and fast end of the spectrum - an all-out head-banging mosh." - The Guardian review Jan 16 2015
