Violent Femmes Supergroup To Perform at MONA FOMA

Written by Alex Langlands on January 17, 2012

After the cancellation of Death Grip’s début show at MONA FOMA Festival in Tasmania, Festival Director and ex-Violent Femmes bassist Brian Ritchie will be forming a supergroup with Amanda Palmer; Brian Viglione of The Dresden Dolls; former Bad Seed, Mick Harvey; and PJ Harvey collaborator and guitarist, John Parish.

In what looks like being a one-off, this supergroup will be performing the Violent Femmes self-titled début classic album. They have said that they will be bringing their own unique spin on the album.

The performance is included in the Festival Pass ($50) or Day Pass ($25). Buy tickets at the PW1 Box Office or online at
