Who's going?

This needs its own thread. I'm trying to get Joann motivated to make the road trip.

edit: I am not committed to going at this juncture becaude I may be moving out of state. DON'T KNOW YET.

Just got a link from the Pixies for presale tickets and you get a live recording of your show sent to your email the day after. $44/ticket for Mesa Amphitheater.

an extra $10 for presale and a live recording? that seems odd.

Yeah, and the message says it is less than what you will pay at ticket outlets...??!!


Hello.

USA... DOOLITTLE TOUR... SEPTEMBER 2010...

Tickets go onsale June 14th to the public.

Tickets are onsale RIGHT NOW for you. And you only.

And your ticket purchases include a live download of the entire show that you attend.

The prices for these tickets carry no fees and are LESS than at any public ticket outlet.

La La Love You,
PIXIES

So I'm guessing they have some ridiculous fees on top of the ticket if you buy them from Ticketmaster or wherever, or whoever posted ticket prices was wrong.

well the mesa amphitheater website says $34.50. that is just all around strange.

ugh, so i was surprised today to find out my next class has a supplemental textbook requirement. they wanted EIGHTY DOLLARS for this book on the school's website, but thankfully i found it on amazon for half the price. but that's the price of the pixies ticket, so i'll be waiting until next check for my pixies ticket :(

on the plus side though, the textbook is the newest edition of the PMBOK, so rick, that means you can have my 2003 3rd edition :)

Jews and Mormons look the same to me. Pasty white, kinda ugly. But once they get to talking, there's such a difference.

i'm going to move the meet-up discussion here dale so it doesn't get lost...

i'm going to the pixies. i would be down to meet-up. but whatever we do, we cannot be late for the show. shit starts ON TIME at mesa amp and they stop selling alcohol really early. i also won't lock my keys in the car again lol.

Gribbz
07-21-2010, 08:46 AM
Whoo hoo. When do shows normally start at Mesa Amp? I haven't seen a show there since I was 14-15.

chairmenmeow47
07-21-2010, 08:53 AM
doors at 5:30, show starts at 7. i believe all shows have to be done by 10. they stop serving alcohol at like 9.

07-30-2010, 10:33 AM
I purchased my ticket on Tuesday, yay! Pixies Friday night and then The Black Keys in San Diego on Saturday night. Man, that is going to be a killer weekend.

Plur!!!

^have you been seeing these black keys posters for each show? So awesome.

I haven't heard Sean's final answer but I think we're on the same schedule as you, MMMicah.

I haven't seen the Black Keys posters, where did you see them at? I hope they have one for the San Diego show. I was very depressed when there wasn't a gig poster at the LCD Pomona show. sad panda.

THE SOCIAL NETWORK


They've been having a different artist for each city and they've all been awesome!

Is this sold out? Haha, I'm hijacking all your AZ show threads now because I have a good excuse to go out there. In fact, ASU "Family Weekend" starts on the 24th, and I just got my sister into the Pixies, so...

I actually haven't decided if I should go yet. Other bands are higher on my list.

M Sparks

I have to work until 6:30, so I will have to miss any pre-show meetups. I'll try to put in for early release.

chairmenmeow47
08-30-2010, 08:28 AM
i will have a new manager as of tomorrow, so getting out early may not be an option for me. i will also be out around 6 and will need to get ready and such. i think meeting up before the show is going to be hard since it starts at 7 and shit at the amphitheatre starts ON TIME. but maybe we can meet by the beer or something.

chairmenmeow47
09-13-2010, 08:16 AM
LET'S TALK MEET-UP

i am going to try to leave at 4. i've already blocked it off on my calendar so we should be good.

do we want to meet-up before? after? both? i think matt's up for both.

do we want to meet close to the venue? i can't really think of anything close that would be a good spot, so i'm open to suggestions.

sin213
09-13-2010, 08:22 AM
that day is my mom's bday...so no before meet up for me. plus, with how early everything will start, there won't be much time before anyways.

but i might be down for an afterparty.

chairmenmeow47
09-13-2010, 08:23 AM
yeah, the show starts promptly at 7. i'm just asking because matt brought it up & i know some people get off earlier than others.

Gribbz
09-13-2010, 03:08 PM
What time will the show end? 10ish? That should leave plenty of time to party after.

chairmenmeow47
09-13-2010, 03:13 PM
they have to stop by 10.

Gribbz
09-13-2010, 03:19 PM
Cool. We'll have to plan an after show meet-up then.

Ivy, I'll probably get into town around 4 if you wanna hang beforehand.

so matt & his buddy want to meet-up before the show. just to confirm, most people won't be able to meet-up before? i was going to suggest four peaks, but if it's a large group, that'll take too long so i just want to confirm.

chairmenmeow47
09-22-2010, 08:22 AM
from the phx thread...


so for the pixies it sounds like the following people want to meet before the show:


me
matt
matt's friend
sean
sean's friend #1
sean's friend #2
jen
audra


that's quite a large table for four peaks. whoever gets there first should ask for 8 then, or at least two tables in the same area. i have a team meeting some asshat scheduled for friday afternoon that may go later than 4, but i am planning to leave at 4 since it's on my calendar that i'm leaving at 4.

I am wondering if I should go to this tomorrow. I think they're ok, pretty good I suppose, but I don't get all the adulation. I saw them at Coachella and that was ok.

chairmenmeow47
09-23-2010, 09:30 AM
you should go. you don't have to adulate. just grab a beer and stand in the back and make fun of those of us who are adulating.

M Sparks
09-24-2010, 05:33 AM
I think I can see why they aren't a band you fall in love with just from seeing them live. I think you have to love the songs first.

09-24-2010, 09:35 AM
i have no idea, it was an email i received. i also couldn't access my ticket yesterday, nor the ticketing website at mesa amphitheatre as i was trying to help a friend get tickets. it may be because i bought my ticket so far in advance? who knows, but strange indeed. i assume if you printed you should be fine.

whew. my ticket was forwarded to me by marc. maybe that has something to do with its availability. i should check this forum more often.

Here is a link to the setlist:

http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/pixies/2010/mesa-amphitheatre-mesa-az-13d5c50d.html

Pixie, the show was fantastic. They sounded incredible. They were having fun up there, and all vocals were spot on. Loved hearing some of the old B sides...Kim even cracked, "Some of these B sides are so obscure, WE had to learn them."

I didn't think the crowd overall was that great (seemed pretty mellow), but they were attentive and responsive overall.

We had a good Coachella board representation, too! Was great to hang with so many boardies (Ivy, IFA, Msparks, Sin, Gribbz, Micah, etc).

My personal faves from the set were Hey, La La Love you, & Where is My Mind (but all the songs were excellent).

09-25-2010, 10:59 PM
Thank you! I am skipping the Pixies shows this time around. Weird, I know.
Believe me. It's killing me so I appreciate any feedback on this show.
Particularly because I was going go and could not get the time off from work.

09-26-2010, 06:39 AM
Joann, I put up a camera phone video of Velouria on my facebook. We were far back so it's mostly a light blur and my daughter dancing around, but I think you can hear the song well. The show was fantastic and we had a great time singing along to the songs.
