Get in my Belly

Happy Birthday Tanya Donelly. Born in Newport, Rhode Island on this date in 1966, later founder of Throwing Muses, The Breeders, and Belly.

It is no secret that in the 1990s, I was a sucker for the alternative female indie rockers. Still am, I guess. The only band that I saw at the old 9:30 club (when it was downtown at 930 F Street) that I can remember by name is Belly.

Here is Tanya playing Slow Dog - Andy Warhol on keyboards.

The current line up of The Breeders (sans Donelly) will be playing the Black Cat August 21st, btw.

The only band I saw at the old club is Drivin' and Cryin'. We drove up from Fredericksburg when I was in college. Ever go to the old Bayou in Georgetown? We saw The Ramones there. I saw a bunch of bands at the old black cat.

What other old venues are there? The Warehouse Next Door...also The Metro or something. I forget what it was called.

drivin and cryin. jeezum. i saw some jam band at the Bayou before it shut. not a memorable band, but a memorable venue. I went to that Metro place a couple times, but not for live music. Their phone number was one digit off from ours at Q Street, and we used to get calls for it all the time.

Wait. Does this mean Kim Deal is involved?

I too saw a jam band at the Bayou, I think it was Blue Highway. I saw remy Zero and Buckcherry at Metro, if you can believe that.

Fun Fact: the lead singer from Remy Zero dated Jennifer Love Hewitt.

Quick poll: will Jennifer Love Hewitt ever find true love? What about Anniston?

My answer is no, never.

Current line up for The Breeders: Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, José Medeles (drums) and Mando Lopez (bass).

I think Aniston and Hewitt will find love in their 40s. They will marry an attorney/restaurateur/pediatric surgeon. Aniston just turned 40 in Feb., while Hewitt turned 30 the same month. Hewitt can control thoughts through "cybertronic" technology. Did you know that? Ask Diana Napolis.

I only know what I read in US, which is that JLH has trust issues, and Anniston is needy and clingy. No mention of cybertronics.
