The Breeders, Sept. 8, Visual Arts Collective 

Splashing around in Boise

The Breeders recently finished touring behind LSXX, a 20th anniversary reissue of the band's platinum release, Last Splash (Elektra, 1993). In a recent interview, Stereogum wrote that Breeders founding member Kim Deal has made "some of the most deeply compelling--not to mention some of the most compellingly influential--music of the past three decades," including Last Splash, an album that helped define what alt-rock was then: the single "Cannonball" a song with one of the coolest intros ever--BBC Radio 2 listeners recently ranked "Cannonball" No. 78 in a poll of the 100 Greatest Guitar Riffs.

The tour for LSXX took The Breeders on an eight-month, 60-date trip around the world. It would have been understandable if the band took an extended break. Instead, the quartet began working on new material, which it will debut during a handful of dates beginning Sept. 2 and culminating in a show at The Hollywood Bowl where they'll share the stage with another groundbreaking band, Neutral Milk Hotel. Some of the September dates are already sold out, so if you want to see The Breeders live, don't stand around spitting in a wishing well. Go get tickets already.
