Hey! On Thursday, June 6, Violent Femmes will headline the third annual “Cheers to Milwaukee” show at Riverside Theater! Hosted by Miller Brewing and Riverside Theater, the show is absolutely FREE! You hear that? FREE! Along with Violent Femmes, guests will also enjoy “a great beer lineup at the venue and a complimentary ticket to Summerfest”! Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m.! And unlike past “Cheers to Milwaukee” shows, the headliner isn’t a secret! (That band again: Violent Femmes.)

You’ll need to be 21 or over to attend the FREE show. Oh, and you’ll need a ticket. Where can you get a ticket? Beginning today, a limited number of tickets are available at:

• The Girl in the Moon shop located at the Miller Brewery (opens at 10 a.m.)
• The Riverside Theater Box Office (opens at 12 p.m.)
• The Pabst Theater Box Office (opens at 12 p.m.)
• The Summerfest Box Office (opens at 10 a.m.)

“We are excited and proud to extend this great tradition with Riverside Theater in a city we’ve been fortunate to call home for more than 160 years,” says Jim Kanter, MillerCoors General Manager for Wisconsin, in a press release. “Miller Brewing remains dedicated to supporting and celebrating what makes this city so special and ‘Cheers to Milwaukee’ allows us to do just that. I can’t think of anything better than enjoying live music from a homegrown band while having a cold Lite or High Life.”

“There is no better way to celebrate the kick off of summer than by hosting a free show with Milwaukee’s legendary Violent Femmes at the historic Riverside Theater, brought to you by our city’s most iconic brand, Miller Brewing,” says Gary Witt, CEO of the Pabst Theater Group, in the same press release. “We are proud to help make ‘Cheers to Milwaukee’ a day where our friends at Miller can give back to the city where their beer was born and to celebrate the amazing contribution Miller has made to our city’s identity and their status as a key employer here.”

Also, Violent Femmes have a new album coming out July 26. Huh! Here’s the title track!
