A July benefit concert by the Violent Femmes has sold out!

The group will perform Tuesday, July 12 at Chicago’s Concord Music Hall, 2047 N. Milwaukee Avenue.

Tickets ($35) went on sale May 6. The 1,400 tickets sold out five days later.

Doors will open at 7 p.m. The show begins at 8:30 p.m.

Net proceeds will benefit the work of the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless. 

Ticketholders must be age 17 or older with a government-issued ID card or driver’s license.

Violent Femmes’ new studio album is the group’s ninth and its first full-length collection in more than 15 years. WE CAN DO ANYTHING may well be part of a long musical continuum, but it is also among the most provocative and playful in the legendary band’s remarkable canon.

“We’ve always done what we wanted and how we wanted,” says Violent Femmes’ Gordon Gano. “Fundamentally there’s no difference from then until now. It’s a natural continuation.”
