Event details

For much of the 1990s, the most acclaimed twins to dominate MTV were not those golden-haired heartthrobs from Nelson. No, it was Kim and Kelley Deal of The Breeders, the band originally formed in 1988 by ex-Pixies bassist Kim Deal and ex-Throwing Muses singer Tanya Donnelly. By 1993, the band had achieved fame based on a hit record ("Last Splash"), a huge single ("Cannonball") and a European tour opening for Nirvana. Lineup changes and drug busts curbed the momentum over the ensuing years, but now The Breeders are back with a fourth album, "Mountain Battles," released last month. Both guitar-wielding Deal sisters are together again at center stage, allied with drummer Jose Medeles, and bassist Mando Lopez.
