The Breeders 

When: Thu., May 2, 10 p.m. 2013
Price: $20
Hard to believe it’s been 20 years since the Breeders made a huge splash with Last Splash, a noise-pop album that picked up where the Pixies left off. The group when formed the Pixies Dayton-born Kim Deal started writing songs as the Pixies were on a European tour. Deal originally hooked up with Tanya Donelly and would eventually bring her sister Kelley into the fold for Last Splash, the album that featured the band’s most popular single, “Cannonball.” To mark the album’s twentieth anniversary, the group is reissuing the disc as a three-CD package (and seven-disc vinyl box set) and has reconvened the original Last Splash line-up for the U.S. tour, which begins tonight at Oberlin’s Dionysus Club. “It’s been really fun,” guitarist Kelley Deal says of revisiting Last Splash. “It’s been fun listening to band members’ stories. I’ll say something and it will remind them of something. It’s melding our memories as we go back through it.” If the warm-up date the band played in March is any indication, expect to hear Last Splash in its entirety with an encore that includes a few choice covers (perhaps even the band’s terrific take on Sebadoh’s “The Freed Pig”).
