So the Pixies are playing in Madison on Sunday, October 12. I got a ticket for myself because the wife isn't really a fan, but I know a few people who will be there, so it should be fun.
I have followed this band for as long as I have liked music and if someone held a gun to my head and said "pick a favorite band", this would be the one.
I had a few doubts when Kim Deal left (or got kicked out - whatever) but looking at the recent appearance at Coachella below, it appears that we are in good hands.
Should be a good show. The last time I saw the Pixies was with Carl and I remember harassing Kim Deal's younger sister, but that is probably a story better told off line.
