News broke yesterday that the Violent Femmes would be headlining the Marcus Amphitheater on Summerfest's opening night (June 26). However, there is more to that story.
In a video released on the official Summerfest Twitter, Chief Marketing Officer John Boler confirmed that the Femmes are indeed playing a headlining show, while also slyly hinting at a co-headliner. If you look at his guitar about a minute in to the video, you'll notice it is signed by all the members of Wilco! In the next shot though, the names have disappeared. Very clever, Summerfest...
Check out the video for yourself.
