Breeders album leaks; Lemonheads to perform "Shame About Ray" on April Fool's Day

Lethal Bizzle: loves the Breeders

Wow, it's feeling so 1993 right about now. We lost track of Kim Deal after the last Pixies tour wrapped, and thus were wholly unprepared for the leak, over the weekend, of a brand-spanking-new Breeders album to the internets. Sure, this is the Kelley Deal version and not the Pod-era Tanya Donelly version, but nope, we're not complaining. It will take us at least several weeks to recall how forgettable the last Breeders album and the Amps album were, right? We have high hopes for the new one, not least because "Bam Thwok" was so obviously more of a Breeders tune than a Pixies tune. There's also a showdate: June 5 at the Paradise.

Then there's this: according to Ticketmaster, the Lemonheads -- i.e. Evan Dando and some dudes -- will be performing their landmark It's a Shame About Ray in its entirety at the Paradise. The hitch: it's on April Fool's Day. Which means . . . well, that means it's a joke, right? That was our first thought, too, except that Dando's doing it for real down at SXSW in mid-March, to celebrate the deluxe reissue of the album, and he's also the sort of goofball who would appreciate the irony of providing a little dreamy wish-fullfilment in Boston on April 1. Also, you can actually buy tickets for this thing. So, um, until further notice, LEMONHEADS PERFORMING IT'S SHAME ABOUT RAY ON APRIL FOOL'S DAY attains show-of-the-spring status until proved to be a figment of someone's imagination.

UPDATE: Confirmed by publicist: Lemonheads performing Ray on April Fool's Day is actually happening.
