The Femurs

Imagine the Ramones unplugged, or the Violent Femmes without quite so much angst, then imagine it all being played by one guy with a semi-acoustic guitar perched atop one leg and kick drums at his feet. Now you’ve got at least some idea of the good time you’re in for when you catch the Femurs live. That one guy is Seattle-via-New York singer and multi-instrumentalist Rob Femur, who’s led the Femurs through four albums (including the recent Ride Together) and has also been spotted playing drums for local pop-punks the Cute Lepers. Occasionally Femur is joined by other players onstage, but no matter what the configuration, you can expect smart, spiky pop tunes with a fun-snotty punk edge that don’t overstay their welcome, and maybe a couple spirited “one-two-tree-faw”’s thrown in for good measure. With The Love Tycoons, Sickeversince. MICHAEL ALAN GOLDBERG
