Summerfest didn’t want to tell you the Violent Femmes were going to open this year’s festival. Yesterday, the news of the band’s reunion tour broke, and Summerfest responded by officially announcing the show. But you’ll have to wait a little longer to find out who’s playing with the Violent Femmes. Right now, the supporting acts appear as nothing more than some blurred-out blotches on the promo image.
This video is (a reenactment, we’re assuming) of chief marketing officer John Boler finding out the show was “out there.”
