    While I agree with you, I also think we would be very lucky if only two new songs cluttered the set. I do want to hear greens and blues though.

    No, I don't think it will be empty at all, I just don't see it being hard to get a good spot as there will likely be a medium size, medium dense crowd; guessing some people will split once they hear some new songs they don't like, too.

    there is no way the pixies will have a "huge ass crowd". I have been a big fan for a long time and am very excited they're going to be there, but it's just not realistic to think they have the draw they once did.

    It would be SO GOOD if they opened with "Where Is My Mind" so half the crowd could get it over with and leave.

    So, I looked at the setlist for this weeks performance and it was...


    ...a little disappointing. Not only was there a little bit too much from Indie Cindy, but it seemed like even the tracks they left out a lot of their better songs.

    The Pixies were freaking amazing. Having seen them multiple times I'm glad they went with some less popular tracks (Nimrod Son and Ed is Dead were highlights for me). Best show of the festival so far for me.

    Agreed! They were great. Sure, no debaser or Allison but they had an awesome energy and everyone in the audience was into it.

    It was not hard at all to get a good spot, thank you Coachella for the late add and for keeping the nasty crowd away so that we could enjoy Pixies in the Gobi.

    One more big song (Monkey, Debaser, Hey) would of been awesome, but the Come On Pilgrim tracks sounded fucking great. Nimrod's son? FUCK YES. Paz is so ideal! No pun intented. I still missed OG Kim but not as much as I though I would. The power of how god damn good most of the Pixies' catalog is will always make their sets great.

    Frankly, I always considered Kim Deal the least essential member of the band, and seeing them live now just vindicates me. I didn't miss her at all.

    but fuck you guys. I'm totally jealous.
    Uh huh.

    So, The Pixies merch had a shirt (or sweatshirt?) that had the Pappy's, Big Sur, and Coachella listed on it. I'm curious as to how early they could have sent that to print.

    Ugh, so disappointed they didn't play Debaser. I still absolutely loved their set and would do it again every time but I just fucking love that song. Oh well, hopefully I'll get to see them again in the future. Def. lived up to all the hype though! Loved it when he asked someone to "destroy" that floating square thing. Laughed so hard.

    Yeah, but Kim would sing back up in Pixies song, and her voice did add to it, even if her bass playing can be replaced.

    I think Paz did a perfectly fine job replacing the backup vocals. Original members leaving bands is always sad but it was going to happen sooner or later, her and Charles have not gotten along for a long time and I'd rather she leave and they keep touring instead of letting that drama explode the whole thing again. And if someone had to leave better it was her, I consider all 3 other members harder to replace.

    I skipped the Pixies when they last came through my town due to zero enthusiasm for the new material and a misguided assumption that a Kim Deal-less Pixies is more akin Frank Black and friends.

    Holy shit was I wrong. That set was ferocious and Paz is an incredible replacement, on both bass and vocals! I don't think they'll ever worry about Kim coming back as long as Paz is around...felt like she'd been a part of the band for years. The new material seemed to work better live than recorded as well.

    Was the Pixies setlist the same week 2 as week 1? I only saw them the first weekend.

  28. #118

    Default Re: Pixies Added Saturday!

    Set lists were pretty close; they didn't do Head On weekend 2, and maybe the order was a bit shuffled, but not much difference. Joey even pulled the same histrionics during Vamos both weekends (all of them: toggle-switch-crossfader trick, sledgehammer-guitar style, backward-guitar style, amp-lead-finger-fuzztone trick). Fantastic.... "new Kim": good for you, you play a solid show. Maybe the tour will pay for a new bass. Gouge Away was a highlight. "Chained to the pillars / a 3-day party / I break the walls and kill us all." The songs from the last couple of EPs are stronger live. Great performance all around.

    pixies were so fucking good. i got to hand a guy a joint at marijuana, if you got some and the performance was absurdly good. i'd like to echo the comment above about the indy cindy songs sounding much better live.

    thanks frank, you're my hero.
