I must admit that the first time I saw the Violent Femmes live it was purely because they were opening for the Throwing Muses. They started to grow on me that night as they were debuting songs from their Why Do Birds Sing CD. Of course, as the years went on my fandom grew as I saw them a few more times and devoured their extensive catalog of hit-filled records (particularly that first record). Here's a little ditty off that WDBS disc. Enjoy!
