In their 12-year career, the Breeders have toured the world and played some of the seediest clubs in the process. But perhaps none is as scary as the joint they’ll rock when they stop in a small, suburban town called Sunnydale.
Deal sisters Kim and Kelley will make an appearance in an upcoming episode of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," according to a UPN spokesperson. The episode, titled "Him," is scheduled to air during November sweeps.
The Breeders, who in May released their first album in nine years, Title TK, will be shown headlining the Bronze, the nightclub where Buffy, Xander and the rest of the Scoobies like to unwind after a night of staking vampires and banishing demons. The band doesn’t influence the episode’s plot, however. They filmed their part September 20.
The Dayton, Ohio, quintet’s cameo ranks them among Cibo Matto, Blink-182 and Lotion as bands that have made visits to the Sunnydale hotspot.
In other "Buffy" news, the soundtrack to last season’s musical episode "Once More With Feeling," debuted at #49 on the Billboard 200 albums chart after selling more than 20,000 copies. The album features the show’s cast singing all the tunes, with musical accompaniment on the more rocking fare provided by A Perfect Circle drummer Josh Freese and Redd Kross bassist Steven McDonald, among others.
