Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs, and Jim Macpherson played their first show together on Friday June 19, 1992, in a snooker hall behind Warrington Rugby Club in the north of England, near Manchester. Two days later they supported Nirvana in Dublin and Belfast, and then played at Glastonbury. Back in the US, after playing 27 sold-out shows that fall, they made their way to San Francisco to record Last Splash.

The Windish Agency would like to take a moment to congratulate Gotye on his chart-topping accomplishments as of late. Since his release of “Somebody That I Used To Know” back in July 2011, Gotye has been blazing charts worldwide. The song topped the Australian charts for an astounding eight weeks straight, the U.K. Singles Chart for five weeks, and was number one in 18 other countries as well. In the U.S., the song has been a true crossover hit, reaching the top spot on the Alternative Songs and Rock Songs charts, in addition to the Billboard Hot 100. Gotye’s hit song is the first by an Australian solo male to hit number one in the US since Rick Springfield released “Jesse’s Girl" 31 years ago.
We're only days from 2012, and The Windish Agency artists are gearing up to lead us into the new year with a proper celebration. To choose the show you attend on the 31st, browse our complete New Years Eve show listing here. Be sure to pick up your tickets before it's too late!
