One of the founding fathers of Alternative Rock, Violent Femmes, made their highly-anticipated comeback this year after a three year hiatus, reuniting to perform at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California in April. This Central Park performance is sure to bring on the hits – including the classic “Blister in the Sun” – you do not want to miss out on this epic, once-in-a-lifetime, East Coast performance!
