I had to wash the Pixies dishes one time after the Grit, this vegetarian restaurant in Athens I used to work at back in '90

How funny!
2 things:

1.) I am VERY easily pleased at a live show by any good band, so when I say the Pixies was one of only two shows in my life by a band I loved that disappointed me/bored the hell outta me, you KNOW I'm not being picky. (the other show, BTW, was Big Country. Yes, in full-fledge '80's mode at that time!))

(I saw the Pixies show in Austin, with an opening band that was great, the Zulus. Recognized immediately the voice of their lead singer as being that of the male vocalist for Human Sexual Response, a great Boston band whom I saw open up for - drum roll please - Mission of Burma, on New Years Eve in Boston!! All the groovyness comes full circle.)

2.) The 2 Trader Vics plates I own came from the above-mentioned Grit!! Magic moment during Drive-Invasion, the morning after ikitnrev and I had been whoopin' it up with Tura Satana and Haji (of FPKK fame) at Trader Vic's, Atlanta. I look down in the remains of my delicious Grit cowboy omelette, and there staring back up at me is the famous TV shield! Vern thought there was maybe a roach in my food, the way I was freaking out!!

Talked 'em into selling me my dirty plate - they asked for $2. I gave 'em $4!

Happened again a coupla months later. Lightening does strike twice!

Well, I wasn't able to get tickets. It sold out in 20 minutes.

I'm feel like the guys from Pearl Jam cause I hates me some ticketmaster!

Dang! Rats!

Hey Polynesiac,
Check out that concert in Indio / right in your backyard!

I was told I have a ticket for that event from a friend of mine...but haven't heard heads or tails since. Should be a fun show - lots o' different musical styles playing all day.

I was actually kind of hoping that the pixies would play a show or two in locations that were a little easier to get to and from. Maybe after their Europe tour? We'll see...

Frank and band played a great show here in Milwaukee last spring... and Lovering did his wierd science act before the show... he made a pickle glow like a lightbulb...

We were able to talk with Frank a bit after the show... then we were surprised to see him packing up and hauling all the band's gear out to the bus out front... hopefully now he'll be making some money to pay someone else to carry his stuff!

I saw the Pixies at the Warfield in SF on their second to last tour and it was a crazy scene in the pit...one giant pogo-ing mob bouncing up and down in blissed-out unison...Great show. Good times. Good times.

Caught their show in Saskatoon (a mere 6 hour drive away) on Saturday night. It was super cool. They did not disappoint, and it looked like they were all haveing a great time on stage too! Viva la Pixies!

I think I have a ticket to see them tonight too!
