THE BREEDERS @ The Fillmore


Wednesday night, August 28th 2013. Live at the FIllmore, the Breeders blew my mind by playing both The Last Splash and Pod albums beginning to end WOW!!! It just took one text message from Kristian Svitak and a hop skip and a jump to the Fillmore and quickly I was in Breeders heaven. I couldn’t help but look around and look for Mark Whiteley to be somewhere in the crowd as the show started, but did happen to run into Mickey and Justin. When they played their version of Happiness Is A Warm Gun, well words can’t describe. Enough of my emo rant, here’s some pics…
