Pixies Reunion Tour Hits Los Angeles

Frank Black (I wanna live in Los Angeles!)and crew will be performing at the Greek in LA and I am pretty excited that they are together. I won't be able to go to the show, being poor etc, but I am nostalgically happy they are still around. One of my best friends, Ron Peck who tragically commited suicide in 1999, introduced me to this band in the late 80s-early 90s. I can still remember alternating between singing, badly, one of their songs (usually Debaser) or Fire in Cairo by the Cure. Boy do I miss Ron.

Anyway, a story about the reunion can be read here. It contains what may be one of the best Rock and Roll interview lines ever:
"Out of respect to our patrons, we don’t wanna mess it up. We don’t wanna say, like, ‘Here’s our middle-aged miscalculation record.'"
