The Violent Femmes played a great set. They played what we wanted to hear. And I for one couldn’t be more grateful.

The Horns of Dilemma only had one song, but the guest saxophone player MORE than made up for it. The band did a fantastic job and lit up the amphitheater with their song and instrumentals!

Awesome show!!! The guys sounded great and really rocked. I can’t wait to see them again! Oh yeah, the chick that opened the show was really good too. I can’t remember her name but I’m going to buy some of her music.

Violent femmes were awesome! Dont know much of Ben Folds so we left after 5 or 6 of his songs
Great to finally see them and they certainly delivered the goods! Would love to go again. Nice folk/bluegrass/punk fusion!

The range of instruments is SO Fantastic! Something my teen self did not know when jamming as a fan and something that makes me love the band even more after finally getting to see them live. Ready to see you when you’re ready to “strut your stuff”
