Violent Femmes to play Sydney Opera House in December

It's hard to believe that 30 years has passed since Violent Femmes first released their self-titled debut, a dynamic LP which showcased the raw and passionate punk rock that would guarantee their relevance for decades to come.

Festival Review: The Falls Music and Arts Festival, Day Two - Marion Bay, Tasmania (30.12.13)
