The Breeders are in town. This past Monday the sisters Deal and Co. were at Webster Hall here in New York City on tour supporting the reissue of their 199 masterpiece Last Splash. While in the area, seemed convenient to head over to 30 Rockefeller Center and hang out with Jimmy Fallon to play a couple tracks. The band performed “Cannonball” and “Drivin on 9”. You could check out video replays of the performances below.
The Lineup for the Hangout Music Festival (taking place on beaches in Alabama May 17th through 19th) has been revealed. Besides Kings Of Leon, things are shaping up to be a very serviceable festival experience. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Phish Spin-Off Trey Anastasio Band, and The Breeders top this list of notables while The Shins, Kendrick Lamar, Passion Pit, The Black Crowes, Bassnectar, Jim James, Slightly Stoopid, The Roots, Bloc Party, Ellie Goulding, Public Enemy, Dirty Projectors, Best Coast, moe., Gov’t Mule and Grouplove among others to join the party.
Also, just like Governors Ball did with us a few weeks ago it looks like we have ourselves “Yet to be announced” headliner, as Tom Petty and Kings Of Leon are only two of the three. Will it be “Guns N’ Roses”? Will it be Skrillex? What about America’s Favorite band Pearl Jam? How about this: Take a guess in the comments section. That’s right, we may not have fancy video equipment but we still would love to hear your guesses as to who the 3rd headliner is going to be. When announced if you guessed right we’ll send you an official tee shirt courtesy of Concert Confessions. Hey, it’s better than a hug right? Check out the full list of acts below, in alphabetical order. Head over to the Festival’s Official Website For More Information.
If you don’t know the Breeders, then shame on you.
The Breeders lineup that released Last Splashback in 1993 (Kim Deal and her sister Kelley Deal along with Josephine Wiggs , and Jim MacPherson) is reuniting for a tour this year in support of the reissuing of the record which will turn 20 years old this year. We’ve been waiting on the dates to arise and finally, they are here!
