We Love Pixies

November 7, 2009

Hey everyone,

I just saw this post on Pitchfork and couldn't resist passing it along. Our fellow Boston rockers, Pixies, know how to put on an incredible live show. Don't believe me? Ryan Dombal has the scoop on how to download four live recordings for free so you can hear for yourself :)

Pixies are really doing everything they can to remind people (and satiate long time fans) of their 1989 album Doolittle. Along with their ongoing Doolittle tour, there are instantaneous live CDs and USB drives being made. They'll play "Here Comes Your Man" on "The Tonight Show", um, tonight, and "I Bleed" with "Weird Al" at a benefit in December.

Now the band is giving away four songs recorded at their recent gig in Paris on October 16. (Via TwentyFourBit via Slicing Up Eyeballs.)
