About

Pixies have been acclaimed as the most influential, pioneering band of the late 80s alt/rock movement, having served as a major influence for artists like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Radiohead, the Strokes, Weezer, and many more.  And today, a whole new generation of music fans has been discovering and embracing the band's "loudquietloud" signature sound.  Quirky, catchy melodies have always been Pixies' calling card; seven genre-defining studio albums, including the Gold-certified Surfer Rosa, and the iconic Platinum Doolittle, considered one of the all-time, quintessential alt/rock albums.  Sell-out crowds all over the globe, Pixies' live shows are unadulterated magic, simultaneously electrifying and lo-fi.  Seventy-five minutes of the band playing anything they want, in whatever order they want, the classics and the new gems.  And no two Pixies shows are ever the same.

After disbanding in 1993, Pixies launched their reunion tour in April 2004, playing to sell-out crowds across the globe for 15 years, a far longer period of time than they were a band originally.  But writing, recording, and releasing new music was something that the band had been wanting to do for a long time, so they secretly booked studio time in Wales for the fall of 2012.  Six days into the recording, founding bassist Kim Deal decided to leave the band; Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering made the decision to carry on, finishing and releasing the band's first studio album in more than two decades, 2014's Indie Cindy.

As a prolific international touring band, Francis, Santiago, Lovering began working with a number of touring bassists, including former A Perfect Circle bassist Paz Lenchantin. The band are renowned for their emphatic live performances - where they play all four corners of the globe - their live sets regularly rack up to 30+ songs played - made even more impressive by the fact that there are no pre-planned setlists or soundchecks before the band walk onto the stage to play.

Twenty-sixteen's Head Carrier followed and marked the beginning of the band's long-standing collaboration with British producer Tom Dalgety.  Twenty-eighteen's Beneath the Eyrie, the next full-length recording project with Dalgety, was recorded at Dreamland Studios near Woodstock, NY. The recording session was documented by the innovative "It's a Pixies Podcast," which captured a true un-edited record of the recording process. A deluxe edition followed, featuring unreleased demos from the Dreamland session.

Early 2022 saw the band and producer Dalgety settle into Guilford Studios in the woods of Vermont, armed with a true abundance of riches, more demos than were needed for the band's eighth album, Doggerel.  Pixies renewed musical fervor saw a stand-alone single, "Human Crime," leap from the shadows in March 2022, and the band then headed out on the road to play sold-out shows in North America, headline BBC Radio 6 Music Festival in Cardiff, and play Mexico City's Vive Latino festival to 70,000 people.  Pixies' first international tour since 2019 kicks off June 22 in Europe and will see the band performing in South America, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand.

Doggerel (2022) is a mature yet visceral record of gruesome folk, ballroom pop and brutal rock haunted by the ghosts of affairs and indulgences, driven wild by cosmic forces and envisioning digital afterlives where no God has provided one.

Doggerel was toured worldwide to sell-out audiences across the entirety of 2022 and 2023 - with the very last show at Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles. Despite the band approaching their 38th year together, the crowds remain as diverse as ever - with new generations of fans emerging year-on-year who were not even born during Pixies 1.0. Pixies will return in 2024...

    Lame Venue

    by Heathrr on 10/22/23South Side Ballroom - Dallas

    People are crammed in, and not just towards the stage. We were staring at the back of people's heads the entire time and we aren't even short. I couldn't see the band at all and there weren't big screens to look at. I'm never going back to this venue. It was really disappointing as the Pixies are my favorite band. At least I got to be in the room with the music.

    Great bands, bad venue, good show

    by No on 9/20/23Petco Park - San Diego

    The general seating “hillock” made things uncomfortable for older/heavier audience members and made moving around difficult, and several people tripped on the fraying, thin green ground netting meant to prevent the dirt from shifting. Love the idea of a Petco Park show, since the Gaslamp district has such great restaurants, hotels, and atmosphere, but the execution wasn’t great. A shame. The Pixies and Modest Mouse deserve better.

    Pixies

    by Bone machine on 9/20/23Petco Park - San Diego

    They have so many hits its hard to cover them all but I think a few big ones were missed. They did an amazing job and sounded great but I miss Kim Deal. The venue was an after thought when petco was built. Not the best concert set up.

    Where are the viewing screens?

    by JamesPixies on 9/20/23Petco Park - San Diego

    We arrived at 8pm right when Modest Mouse took the stage. Venue was packed. There was a hillside that held the majority of the 6000 plus in attendance. Not once did we see Modest Mouse on stage as it was physically impossible throughout their entire set. After Modest Mouse finished their set we were able to make our way over the top of the hill and have a view of the stage for Pixies. Still an obstruction of view from there. I would recommend getting there early.

    Why with the light?!

    by Beeka on 9/19/23Petco Park - San Diego

    Bands were absolutely fantastic, venue is really cool. But good lord tone down the brightness! Had to spend half the show looking away so I didn’t have to see spots. Really wish I’d brought my sunglasses.

    Terrible Crowd and terrible crowd control

    by JK on 9/19/23Petco Park - San Diego

    Absolutely worst concert experience I have ever had. Took my girlfriend to many concerts, we are both 50 yrs. old and have seen many concerts and festivals in our time. This crowd was out of control, highly intoxicated to the point of causing fights. The lack of access in and out of the stage front area to the concessions/bathrooms was abysmal. After leaving to go to the restroom I was met with a very hostile crowd to try to get back to where I was standing. Many people simply blocked me from moving forward and threatened me physically. Many very drunk people causing trouble. I've never seen so many people so absolutely hammered to the point of stammering and becoming agitated/threatening. Perhaps it was the Modest Mouse fans but honestly that is no excuse. We did not feel safe most of the time and ended up standing near the exit to be close in case something serious happened.
