Watch: Violent Femmes make ‘American Music’ with BBQ grill in KEXP live set

This past August, as their co-headlining tour with Echo & The Bunnymen reached its end, the Violent Femmes stopped by Seattle radio station KEXP to perform a 22-minute set for listeners, which now has been posted in full video glory for the rest of us to see.

As you can watch below, the trio — co-founders Gordon Gano and Brian Ritchie, plus new drummer John Sparrow (and his BBQ grill) — performed four classics for the crowd: “Blister in the Sun,” “Please Do Not Go,” “American Music” and “Country Death Song.”

The Femmes head back out on the road next week with a Wisconsin-heavy tour itinerary.

Check out that full video below.
