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.
