Brian Ritchie of the "Violent Femmes"

  1. I'm going to see the "Femmes" live in concert in a couple of weeks which I am very much looking forward to, especially because of their bassist Brian Ritchie. I reckon it's pretty cool what he's doing with his acoustic bass. Anyone else? :)

  4. Femmes was one of the best concerts I've ever seen - back in the day in a small theater in DC.

    they really had the crowd jumping.

    I like Brian Ritchie's unique approach to the bass.

    Hope they're still as good as back in the day.

    I saw them a few years ago as a warm up band for P-Funk. Richie's tone on the ABG was nice; very punchy and deep, with lots of zing on top.
