The Violent Femmes were great! They played all the favorites, plus a few newer songs that were good, too. They put on a great show, the crowd was great, and Stage AE was the perfect size venue for the event. Echo and the Bunnymen played second, which was a little disappointing since I went just for the Femmes, but they sounded great and the crowd really responded well to them.
What a great choice of venue for their first time in Grand Rapids!
