One Week Till The Pixies hit NYC

The Pixies from Soviet Panda

The above photo was borrowed, resized, and optimized without permission from Soviet Panda. His photos from the November 12th Minneapolis show are amazing, so go check them out.

In one week from now, The Pixies (the 6th greatest band in America?) will return to NYC for an 8 show run. It will be their first concert here in a bazillion years.

Those lucky enough to have/get tickets to the opening show, will see Brooklyn’s own indie superstars, TV on the Radio, open the show.

The complete list of show dates and openers:

Sat Dec 11 – Tv On the Radio opening
Sun Dec 12 – The Datsuns opening
Mon Dec 13 – Mission of Burma opening
Tue Dec 14 – Broken Social Scene opening
Wed Dec 15 – Le Tigre opening
Thu Dec 16 – Reid Paley opening
Sat Dec 18 – Mike Watt & The Second man opening (7pm show)
Sat Dec 18 – Kristin Hersh & The 50 foot wave opening (midnight show)

All eight of these shows are sold out, BUT it is extremely easy to buy and trade tickets. (Craigslist, Ebay). You have no excuse. If you are in, or around NYC, and you are not going to at least one of these shows…well then you are either broke or stupid. Keep in mind, that although I consider Hammerstein Ballroom a large venue, it is a small venue compared to where they’ve been playing in other cities.

Leary of “reunion” tours? Think the Pixies are too old to rock? Well, the reviews from around the world are in, and The Pixies are as good as ever.

Reunited Pixies offer unbelievable live experience

If you haven’t heard the Pixies yet, the band that has influenced all bands that have come after them, maybe these downloads will help you realize what you’ve been missing…
