    I’m sure this is a "more dates to be announced" situation… Worry not, I’m sure they’ll hit the Tdot!

  2. Frank says:

    yeah, but not till late summer/early Fall with all the European commitments. And there’s always the chance that they’ll remember why they split up in the first place and the Pixies will be rent asunder at the corner of Portage and Main. So poetic, so sad.

    Betcha they play "Winterlong" there, though.

  3. janelle says:

    this cannot be an exhaustive list. there must be more to come.

  4. Frank says:

    after Coachella they’re off to Europe, not back till mid July. Hopefully more dates then. Maybe we’re looking at a Molson Amphitheatre show for Toronto?

  5. david says:

    I’m more hyped about the Mountain Goats tour this spring. The Pixies shows were good, but never great (yes, I’m an old mutha). I’d much rather see the Breeders or a FB solo show, or even Cracker with David Lovering on the skins.

  6. Frank says:

    ah yes, the mountain goats tour which is also not coming anywhere near me. Booo, I say. Boo.

  7. Andy says:

    …..maybe if you said "Baaaaa"

    you know, kind of in a come hither sort of way.

  8. duffy says:

    If you’re the Pixies, and you’re coming out of retirement for so many years, after hating each other, etc etc etc, you start your tour off in smaller markets. You’re not gonna debut at the Fillmore in San Francisco….

    Same approach Zwan had when Corgan formed that band. Play random ass spots.

  9. Frank says:

    How about them playing my backyard? That’s pretty random ass. I’ll even provide Kool-Aid.

    Speaking of mountain goats, some bastard hacked the site http://…/

    What the fuck, the Pixies are playing here (Victoria)?! at the curling club no less. Only Big Naked, Swollen Members, Matthew Good and GOB have the star power to fill that venue, can the Pixies fill those shoes?! we shall see…

  12. GIA says:

    How can u people not be sooo pumped for this. Go pixies i am so ready for this. Edmonton will show them love if you people cant. GO PIXIES!!!!!

  13. Frank says:

    I will be pumped when they play in the same time zone as me. For the moment though, I will simply savour my sour grapes.

    Mmm, sour.
