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.

$35-$88, Mon May 13, 8pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N St Mary’s St, (210) 812-4355, theaztectheatre.com.
