Violent Femmes

By all accounts, the Violent Femmes blew the roof off the Tobin Center — and mopped the stage with tour mates Echo & the Bunnymen — when they swung through last summer. This time around, the Milwaukee-based folk-punk trio is touring with a band more likely to match its energy and intensity. Part of LA’s fertile late-’70s and early-’80s punk scene, X stood out from the pack with a sound that matched guitarist Billy Zoom’s turbocharged rockabilly licks with the literary lyrical bent and minor key harmonies of front-couple — since divorced — Exene Cervenka and John Doe.

Randy’s Rodeo


Once a country-focused dance hall, this venue hosted the Ramones, Rush, L7, the Beastie Boys and Patti Smith in addition to an infamous 1978 Sex Pistols gig. Now its hosts bingo nights as Randy’s Bingo. KISS-FM DJs Joe Anthony and Lou Roney built an extension onto Randy's stage during the ’70s after booking Canadian prog-rock band Rush and realizing all of the equipment wouldn’t fit. For many, the Sex Pistols' gig (pictured) remains Randy's most legendary.
