HowWasTheShow will be going to tonight's Pixies show. (Foolish me, I bought tickets right away when they went on sale and they added the second show on the day BEFORE.) Of course, buying right away (April 17th seems so long ago now) I ended up with four seats in the 13th Row on the main floor. I wasn't planning on writing a review as this will be the 4th time I've seen the band this year (Fine Line in April, and the Hurricane and Roskilde festivals in Europe this summer.) But these look like the best seats so far, so I may be unable to resist.
Going tonight? Check out the reviews in the STrib and the PiPress of last night's show:
- Ross Raihalla's review in the St. Paul Pioneer Press: Pixies and jammin' just ain't slammin'
- Chris Riemenschneider's review in the STrib: Reunited Pixies take Wilkins arena head on
No tickets to the Pixies? Here's a consolation prize that you can feel good about. (Or go post-Pixies like we plan to do.)
Tonight (11/11) is the second benefit/CD Release Party for Missing Children Minnesota.
The show, featuring MOLLY MAHER, MARTIN DEVANEY and ROMANTICA starts off at 9:00 at the Cabooze. Tickets are just $5, and all proceeds from the door and cd sales benefit Missing Children Minnesota and its mission of helping to ensure the safety of all children in Minnesota.
