Are you ready to see the Violent Femmes this October?
The iconic alternative band is bringing their enduring legacy to The Eastern on Friday, Oct. 28 — and Access Atlanta is hooking you up with tickets to see the live performance. We’re giving away five pairs of tickets!
That’s right: You can win your way into their Atlanta show for an intimate performance by one of America’s most iconic bands. You’ll hear some of the group’s most beloved classics, like “Blister in the Sun” and “Kiss Off,” as well as songs from their latest albums, “We Can Do Anything” (2016) and “Hotel Last Resort” (2019).
The contest will start on Sept. 13 at 3 p.m. and run through Sept. 28 at 11:59 p.m. Good luck!
From their debut album in 1983 to today, they’ve made a name for themselves with their honest lyrics and raw sound. They’ve played at festivals, clubs, and theaters worldwide. The Femmes’ unique style inspired MTV’s “Unplugged” show, and they’ve been cited as an influence by artists as diverse as Pink, Keith Urban, The Smiths, Gnarls Barkley and John Cusack. The band even made a special appearance on the beloved 90′s sitcom “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.”
One might think that touring the same songs for 40 years gets boring, but Gordon Gano, the lead singer of the Femmes, told Thrasher Magazine, “I think I enjoy being a performer more than ever. I have more of an appreciation of the whole experience. The joy you can see and feel when we’re playing at one of our shows is pretty amazing.”
