Too Much Effing Perspective: Violent Femmes’ Brian Ritchie – The Not-So-Ephemeral Femme

Every performer who’s ever been on the road has at least one bizarro story that could have been pulled straight from the iconic music mockumentary, This Is Spinal Tap. Co-hosts Allen Keller and Alex Hofmann delve deep into their guests’ harrowing, humbling, and hilarious Spinal Tap Moments uncovering universal truths along the way.

Violent Femmes bassist Brian Ritchie tells us about attending the legendary 1975 Bruce Springsteen “Bomb Threat” show in Milwaukee; why Kurt Cobain insisted on opening for the Femmes even though Nirvana was a bigger band; and what it was like to be part of the Velvet Underground reunion on Moe Tucker’s album “I Spent a Week There the Other Night.”
