What if instead of that Pixies song at the end of Fight Club it had been the Breeders playing while buildings exploded around Edward Norton and Helena Bonham Carter? Yeah, yeah, it was a great song choice. But I can’t help imagining an alternate reality where millennials were introduced to bassist Kim Deal’s other (better) band through the power of a kinda clichéd movie ending. Would there be a whole crew of magical, fuzzed-out slacker-pop bands fronted by twin sisters ruling the world? The group has been blowing minds on and off since 1990, crafting gorgeous gems with sister harmonies that feel like a warm, lavender-scented bath for my brain. Plus, the openers are an all-mermaid surf band who play songs about salt-water-proof mascara. This is going to be the best night ever. ROBIN EDWARDS
