The bad news: I’ll have to wait a bit. They’re playing Accordion City on November 24th. I’ll be 37 then (my birthday’s November 5th).
In the meantime, I’ll have to wait and make do with these very well-recorded MP3s of the Pixies’ first live show in 12 years. They were recorded straight off the soundboard at the Fine Line Music Cafe in Minneapolis on April 13th.
This is a big collection of files, so they’re being distributed by BitTorrent (written by my friend Bram Cohen, who I’m glad is finally reaping some rewards for writing this fine piece of software). You can download BitTorrent here.
Here’s the set list for the show:
2. Wave of Mutilation
4. Levitate Me
5. Broken Face
6. Monkey Gone To Heaven
7. Holiday Song
9. Nimrod’s Song
10. La La Love You
11. Ed Is dead
12. Here Comes Your Man
16. Number 13 Baby
19. Gouge Away
21. Isla De Encanta
23. In Heaven->Wave of Mutilation (UK Surf)
24. Where Is My Mind?
25. Into The White
I’m listening to them right now, and lovin’ ’em!
(And yes, Meryle, I’ll burn you a copy on CD-ROM for your birthday.)
