The Violent Femmes have always saved some of their best concerts for their home state. Last time the trio launched a tour of small Wisconsin theaters, they got a live album out of it, 1999's Viva Wisconsin. Now, 19 years after that tour, they've announced another one. On the heels of a solid new album (last year's We Can Do Anything), the band will tour the state in October, stopping at five small to mid-sized theaters. Friend of the band Brett Newski will open each date.
