HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Weds 18 - The Breeders at Electric Ballroom
Woo-hoo! Having missed The Breeders' first reformation show in 2013 at the Forum, I wasn't going to miss out this time around - and after months of excited anticipation, the show is finally here. The Breeders! I've been singing "Do You Love Me Now?" to myself all week and if they don't play that on Wednesday, I will cry. Can't wait!
