Breeders

"I felt like an out-of-touch old man when I overheard the bartender saying that tickets were still available and that they probably wouldn't sell out. How did it come to this? With several hit singles and a platinum-plus album under their belt, the Breeders shouldn't have difficulty selling out a venue that has a capacity of only five or six hundred. Maybe it wasn't promoted well or maybe too many have forgotten about the band (despite releasing an album last year and a fresh, spanking EP a few months back), but they deserved better. Or else I can enjoy the intimacy of the raucous show and wear the ringing in my ears (that still hasn't subsided after twenty-four hours) as a badge of honor." [a review of the Newport, Kentucky show]

The Breeders kicked off their current tour on August 5th in Newport, KY. Last night (8/17), the band played the Paradise in Boston. That's where the pictures in this post are from. Tonight (8/18), The Breeders plays the first of two NYC shows taking place at Bowery Ballroom. Whispertown 2000 opens both both shows which are sold out. More pictures from Boston below...
