it sucks that Frank Black is in town, The Breeders are at ATP NY and there is no Pixies show to be seen at ATP, bummer

Posted by Anonymous | September 3, 2010 11:47 AM

what's a bummer is the pixies still touring behind NOTHING

Posted by Anonymous | September 3, 2010 11:51 AM

11:51am well said! They've been touring since 2004 with the same material and people are still seeing them.

They must be making some kind of $$$

Let's predict who might reunite/"come back" for Coachella next year.....
1) Boards of Canada
2) Desaparecidos
3) At the Drive In
4) The Avalanches
5) Future Sound of London
6) Talking Heads
7) David Bowie
8) Cocteau Twins

I know it's been posted here once, but since there has hardly been any publicity, I thought I'd mention again that Beak> is Geoff Barrow of Portishead. Should be a great night at Bowery.

yeah, i'm not saying pixies aren't still a great show to catch... but come on, it's so obvious they're just doing it to put their kids through college/support dave lovering's pill-popping habit.

not to burst your bubble, but they have always done it for these exact reasons.

isnt that Hank from Breaking Bad?

Posted by jesse pinkman | September 3, 2010 12:45 PM

12:37, you're probably right, BUT, it's just kinda sad to see that tour go on so ridiculously long without any new material. if it was just a reunion tour, it would have been for like a year and then that would have been it.

do you think pavement will still be doing this tour without any new material 6 years from now?

Hoping the Duke doesn't steal my wallet tonight! The Dutchess can do whatever the hell she pleases with me.
