The music review cliché’ is to say that the Pixies ROCKED the stage or to say that they GRABBED the stage and never looked back. Those comments would be a total understatement. The Pixies played 33 songs – including the encore – without wasting time on simple banter with the audience. Nobody does that. For the diehard Pixies fans, you saw the them perform at their best, with no compromises at the Paramount on December 3rd. They truly know their fans, and they put on one hell of a great show.

In 2016 the Pixies released Head Carrier. Whether or not you are a Pixies fan, go to Pixies Music and check it out.
