Ben Folds and Violent Femmes are going on tour together. While their might not be much linking the ’90s bookish indie act and ’80s masters of jangle, they have a winking sensibility in common. That’s enough for the cheeky piano pop player and the snotty folk-punkers, who are coming together for a series of shows this summer.

Both the Femmes and Ben Folds have their own tours throughout the summer but the 17-date matchup starts on July 28 with a show at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut. The two acts head down the East Coast with stops at Washington DC’s The Anthem and Pittsburgh’s Stage AE Outdoors. After shows in Charlotte and Nashville, Ben and the Femmes will hit Detroit and Minneapolis before closing out their tour together at Kansas City’s Starlight Theatre on August 16.

For fans who aren’t lucky enough to catch both bands together, it’s worth noting that there are chances to catch either act on the road throughout the year. Folds will play several festival shows while the Femmes have dates at venues like the ACL Live and the Hollywood Bowl.
