When are the Pixies coming around?  It seems that they are playing everywhere but Maryland/DC/Virginia...

TIckets won't be on sale for a while apparently, according to Seth. Hopefully we will get a presale through the Pixies site. Got GREAT seats for Philly that way.

I would say that if there is an official website, that would be the one at 4AD records:
 
 http://www.4ad.com/artists/catalogue/pixies/index.html
 
 However, the one where you will be able to get tickets in advance (and it might be the official, don't know) is
 
 http://www.pixiesmusic.com

No problem, just make sure not to miss them. Saw them in Brazil last week and they were incredible. My only question is how high the motivation will be in December when they play in DC. By that time, they will have been playing for seven months in a row.

Brazil?  That's awesome!  Yeah, I hope that they can keep everything together by the time they get here.  Who else was at the Brazil show?

It was mainly a festival with Brazilian rock bands. Some of them were very good. I believe there were only three foreign bands, The Pixies, the Scottish Teenage Fanclub and Hell on Wheels from Sweden. You may know Teenage Fanclub, they are a very solid band with excellent live performances. As for Hell on Wheels, I didn't know them, but thought they were excellent. The website of the festival is www.curitibapopfestival.com
 
 The Pixies will play in a couple of weeks in Barcelona at the Primavera Sound festival with PJ Harvey, Wilco, Mudhoney and The Fall among others. www.primaverasound.com
 Then they go to the Festimad in Madrid and continue with a pretty big festival tour around Europe. They should be exhausted by December.

I don't know if they'll be exhausted...back in the day, they were extreme workaholics and did some pretty intense touring too. Frank Black has always done extensive tours. I'm not overly concerned about their exhaustion since they will get some breaks here and there. Given how quickly shows have been selling out, I'm sure they will find the motivation SOMEHOW   :roll:
