There's a lot young people (at shows) just like the old days," Santiago says. "Sometimes you see a parent with, I don't know, a tween kid. You could just see that, you know, it wasn't lack of babysitter. The kid really wanted to be there. It was probably his idea."
The Pixies kicked off another round of "Doolittle" tour dates at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, NJ last night (10/27). Here are some pictures, including one of the setlist. They continue below...

does the band really need a set list for this fucking state fair show? loved this band since I was 16, but come on already, either write some new shit or stop touring.

85 bux for the best tickets.
I saw Surfer Blood last year at sxsw, stop three times in the middle of a song to tune.
NO thanks.

Posted by Anonymous | October 28, 2011 8:46 PM

Their monkey's gone to heaven. Enough already.

they came out with one new song back in, somewhere around '02-ish, and that's about it. i saw this band live a couple times in '87 and '88, and i've loved them since. but fuck! this rehashing of the same ol' shit and milking it for all its worth is bullshit. either make new music and then tour or either take a page from the playbook for the talking heads and the smiths and hang it the fuck up.

You know the next tour will be for Surfer Rosa!

Posted by Anonymous | October 28, 2011 11:33 PM

that's great that you all want new songs, but these tours keep selling out at very high tix prices, so why would they?

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2011 1:13 AM

if you don't wanna go, don't fucking go. wow, what a concept. it sold out so it seems to me they don't need your money or your approval.

Ok fuckstick, how about you do one meaningful thing in your life that will be remembered. Pixies wrote amazing songs that still remain musically relevant after all these years. Who the fuck are You??! Asshole

It's bad enough to be flirting with 40, but when bands from your youth are already doing perpetual oldies nostalgia tours, it only makes me feel older. So have your tantrums, 5:39, but I know exactly how the others in this thread feel about their reunion sans any new music.

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2011 7:32 AM

I’d pay to see them if they toured the UK, anyone know if they are crossing the pond sometime soon?

Posted by Preston | October 29, 2011 8:30 AM

huh huh he said "fuckstick" huh huh

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2011 8:33 AM

I saw the Pixies once in 1990, they opened for Jane's Addiction along with Primus. Tickets were less than 20 bucks. Now you kids are paying quadruple the price to hear the nostalgia version with a shittier lineup. What a joke.

this charming man has the worst haircut and bangs ever

Pixies were never "tortured artistes". They weren't trying to "bring down the man" either. The reunion is obviously a cashcow, but that doesnt go against their ethics.

They sound great, and they're playing some of the best rock songs ever written. It's a great deal for everyone.

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2011 10:37 AM

What do their ethics have to do with it? Frankly, people who make a career out of music and don't make money whenever they can are fools.

Just look at the sad story of Tony Wilson. He ran his business like a la-di-da socialist retard and in his hour of need was rejected by the health service for drugs that could have prolonged his life ... and he didn't have the money to procure them elsewhere.

8:34, yeah what a joke that some people were not born when you were born.

i shaved my balls with a BRAUN CRUZER and now they look as smooth as that dude in the PIXIES bald head.

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2011 3:29 PM

^ are you implying that your balls are as smooth as 2 chickpeas?

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2011 3:47 PM

I am implying that none of you are a member of The Pixies. So love 'em or hate 'em, you are a NOBODY compared to The Pixies

Thank you, and give generously on your way out the door

Agreed. Awful pick for a opener in Surfer Blood. Little pompous fuck lead singer.

The new song the Pixies released around '02 was called 'Bam Thwok' - I thought I had dreamed that.

@8:41pm. If that happened, Wellmont needs to step up their game. That happened there during a Dropkick Murphys show a few years back as well. Show stopped, fire department came, etc.
