Hope you got your tickets for this event because the latest news on the street is that this show at the Brady Theater is sold out!
The Pixies are an alternative indie-rock band that formed in 1986 and the band still has all of its original members which consists of; Black Francis (lead vocals and electric guitar and acoustic guitar), Joey Santiago (electric guitar), Kim Deal (bass guitar and backing vocals), and David Lovering (drums).
The group disbanded over rancorous circumstances in 1993 but reunited in 2004. Although they only had modest success in the States, their popularity really took off in the United Kingdom and elsewhere in Europe. The Pixies are known for having songs that are written about offbeat subjects like UFO’s, surrealism, mental instability and violent Biblical imagery. Black Francis has a sound all his own with his howling vocals which makes him very memorable.
The Pixies are one of the leading bands that birthed alternative rock in the early 90’s. Bands like Nirvana and many others have said that they were heavily influenced by the Pixies and thus caused the bands fan base to substantially grow. Due to the groups’ disbandment in 1993, they never reaped the full benefits of their legacy. Luckily, the band has come back to life with quite the cult-following. They are on tour now with the continuation of their 20th Anniversary of “Doolittle”, their 1989 album release.
This tour kicked off in Philadelphia on September 7th and will be making their stop in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday September 18th to a sold-out Brady Theater. The Pixies once again are following in their own groundbreaking footsteps by offering “instant” live disc sets available immediately after each show. The band will play the entire Doolittle record from start to finish, and will also include special “B” sides and other favorites. Each show will be brilliantly captured and mixed on-the-fly, and will be packaged in a commemorative two-disc Doolittle Live DigiPak.
The consumer price of each collectible disc set is $25 USD, available online at www.doolittlelive.com and also $25 at each show. Discs may either be picked up at the end of the show, or shipped home. The Pixies are sure to leave their mark on Tulsa and this is for sure one show not to miss!
