The Femmes have actually been touring, nearly non-stop, for the past 20 years. It's not like they were short on cash and decided to get back together.
I'll concede their last few albums haven't been very good, But "Why Do Birds Sing?" is still a decent listen. And their live shows are great. I've probably seen then six or seven times in the last ten years, and I think they've gotten better with age. Well, as long and Brian Richey doesn't get too out of hand.
