Do you remember 1993? George Bush, Sr. was on his way out, and Bill Clinton was on his way in. Kurt Cobain was still alive. George and Jerry pitched their "show about nothing" to NBC. Jurassic Park was killing it at the box office. Lena Dunham turned seven. And The Breeders' Cannonball was every Gen X'ers summer anthem. Now, Spin magazine is reporting:
The lineup that made the Breeders' beloved 1993 abum Last Splash — Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson — will be celebrating the album's 20th anniversary in Brooklyn, New York, on March 29 by playing the album in full, front to back. The show at the Bell House will mark the lineup's first concert in nearly two decades
