What an awesome show!  They came, they rocked, burned CDs and sold 'em to you 10 minutes later.  It was much fun.  The band was tight, played their songs well but still with that live element so that you were glad to experience it rather than sit home and listen to the albums.  Highlight of of the evening you ask?  It came after their opening bit that Kim Deal introduced as "B-sides".  Yes, they played "Dolittle" all the way, double-rainbow across the sky, in order, complete.  It was tremendous.  You couldn't have knocked the silly grin off my face with a floppy 10lb salmon.

Can't say much for the opening act.  I won't call them a band.  Their name was the Fu*k Buttons, yeah, with the asterisk.  Two guys with keyboard/laptops facing each other with their profiles to the crowd.  Dark stage, you really couldn't see them.  They were some techno, house-music, DJ outfit.  Maybe it would have been cool in a club or at a rave.  But live?  Not so much.  People weren't even dancing.  Mrs. Jonzr said the people in the pit looked like a bunch of zombies.  I was hoping they'd charge the stage and rip the Fu*k Buttons limb-from-limb. Meh.

And yes, I did buy my limited-edition, Pixies Live at the Verizon Theater, 9/19/2010 CD!  I'm pretty sure I'll be able to pick my yells out of the cacophony.  B)

They had a cool video setup and showed films and various footage throughout the show.  Before they took the stage there was a weird old b&w film that showed some lady getting her eyeballs slit.  Somebody said something about Dali?

But talk about devotion - the dude beside me drove from Colorado to see them.  But wait, there's more.  He first swung by Kansas City to pick up his sister!  We chatted a bit before the show, he was in a punkabilly band "Hoss" back in the day and opened for Frank Black and the Catholics!  How cool is that?

That's Un Chien Andalou, the first real piece of surrealist cinema.

I thought the dude I was talkin to at the concert kinda looked like you from one of the pics in the gallery.  It was nice talking to you.

Looks like you've been missing a lot of work lately.
I wouldn't say I've been *missing* it, Bob.
