Monday, 12/16

The Breeders at Beachland Ballroom & Tavern

““It was a mere 40 minutes long, but the Breeders’ Last Splash made huge waves in the pool of our ’90s consciousness. In fact, it’s still lounging out there on its floaty, with strawberry daiquiri firmly in hand, showing all the fresh young cabana boys and girls how to do it. It’s been 20 years and that shit still sounds fantastic.” – PORTLAND MERCURY The Breeders’ Last Splash 20th Anniversary tour continues with another wave of tour dates being added to close out 2013. Following a stint in Australia at the end of October, Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Jim Macpherson and Josephine Wiggs will return to the United States for a batch of new dates. As was the case earlier in the tour, the band will continue to play their landmark album, Last Splash, in its entirety.”
