The affable Gano and his band, filled out by bassist Brian Ritchie and percussionist Victor De Lorenzo, stop by Numbers today. Though they've matured (in age) since forming 25 years ago, the pop-folk-punk Femmes have shown no signs of slowing down. When the band busts out its memorable bare-bones acoustic romps and cult hits (which were recently compiled on Permanent Record: The Very Best of Violent Femmes), it's gonna be one big sing-along. The kiss-off begins after Zykos takes the stage.
