It’s like owning the complete set, but at a venue!
By Uncle Blurt
We all love the Breeders; why, your Uncle and Auntie caught ‘em at the Hopscotch Festival back in September as they were doing the classic Last Splash album in its entirety (plus sundry B-sides), and it was killer! (Well, the Hopscotch sound crew didn’t do the band any favors, but aside from the muddy mix, the show was quite memorable.) Now comes this missive direct from the band:
The Breeders are pleased to announce a special treat for attendees of select upcoming dates, which are the final dates of their 8-month long tour. In addition to playing their exceptional album Last Splash in its entirety, Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson will also be performing a complete run-through of its predecessor, Pod, during shows in Chicago, Boston, New York and Austin. The inclusion of Pod has happened only in London, San Francisco and Sydney on the Last Splash 20th Anniversary Tour.
The Breeders are also happy to bring along Northampton, Massachusetts indie rockers Speedy Ortiz as support for these upcoming dates with the exception of the New Orleans and Austin engagements. The band will welcome Imperial Teen as special guests for the Austin New Year’s Eve show. A full list of upcoming shows can be found below.
Well, all right then!
