Violent Femmes Rock Coachella Eyewear

Violent Femmes bassist Brian Ritchie recently came in to our 3rd St shop for some new looks. The musician and his wife Varuni, who live in Tasmania, were on their way to to Coachella for a much anticipated Violent Femmes reunion performance.

“When I saw this shop, I knew I was going to find something special here,” Brian, who co-founded the band in 1980 and is known for his unique acoustic bass sound, told us.

He decided on a pair of extreme Cavalli cateye sunglasses to wear on the Coachella Main Stage.

Varuni selected a Michele Lamy design from Dan’s vintage collection for her Coachella eyewear.

Strong designs that looked terrific on a very cool couple!
