Pixies Playing T.T. The Bear’s Farewell Show Tonight

T.T. The Bear’s Place is an iconic rock club in Cambridge, Massachusetts that’s been in operation since 1983. But it’s set to close next month, apparently because club owner Bonney Bouley just doesn’t feel like doing it anymore. Pixies haven’t played the venue since 1987, but it was important in their development; they’ve called it… More »

Frank Black Is Cool With Streaming Because iTunes Is Apparently Too Confusing

Frank Black spoke to The Daily Beast’s James Joiner about the making of Pixies’ forthcoming record, and inadvertently, about how confusing iTunes is. I get it.

Pixies – “Silver Snail” Video

The new Pixies album Indie Cindy has started a ton of fights just by existing, but the band hasn’t let those fights prevent them from making videos for just about every song on the album. “Silver Snail” is the newest video, and it’s a weird one. Mount Emult directs a deeply surreal chronicle of some… More »

Pixies Soundtrack “Gigantic” iPhone Commercial

If the 2014-edition Pixies are in full cash-in mode, which seems like a definite possibility, then it is absolutely no surprise to see them licensing their songs to gigantic corporations. But Apple’s new iPhone commercial, which uses “Gigantic” to highlight the phone’s musical capabilities, is extremely artful as far as these things go. Please no… More »

Coachella 2014: The 9 Best Things From Saturday

I’m not crying, I just have a little dust in my eyes. No, really: Coachella’s second day was largely engulfed by a more manageable (but still annoying!) version of the dust storm that turned last year’s event hazardous.
