    I Saw Them

    I actually saw them for free here in San Diego at the Del Mar Fair like 7 years ago. It was amazing. I guess they were in town and they just decided to set up right in the dirt parking lot and play a show for everyone. It rocked.

    One Of My Favorite Bands Of The 80's And I Miss The Horns.

    My sister actually first exposed the Femmes to me when I was about 15 or 16 years old. Ever since then, they remain one of my favorite bands. I remember seeing them at UC Irvine, CA. They were bigger than No Doubt, who opened for them. I sure miss that Mr. Gano. The horns of...
