no. 13 baby
Firstly let me say it rained. Steady (not too hard but very steady) all night. It was dry through Bloc Party & Common but when Keane took the stage the heavens opened. The band joked that it was a gift they brought with them from England. They played a tight show. Lovely harmonic music that is a pleasure to listen to in the rain!
The killers were next & I am not a fan of the band. They put on a tight show but I just don't really like their music. Unfortunately it was the only way to get in good position to see the Pixies. So we stuck it out. Apparently they are really popular! Who knew?
So after the Killers set was over we made our move to the front of the stage & unbelievably we made it!! We were 4 people in from the barricade to see THE PIXIES!!! Right before they went on they showed crowd shots from the stage on the Jumbotron & it was at that point we realized we were in front of at least 30,000 people. Yep, we ROCK!! Better yet they rocked!! An hour and a half and 21 songs later they played every song that you would want to hear. Spoke only to say "thanks" and looked like they had an awesome time doing it. Kim had the perma-grin the entire show & they all seemed to be in great spirits. Joking with each other & laughing! It was great to see.
The pixies are selling CD's of all the live shows on this tour. They are limited editions and the sample sounds great. You can check it out pixies disc . We bought ours as soon as we got home last night.
So now to recover & walk back out into the rain (yes people it's still raining). Today's lineup is Tegan & Sara, Joan Jett, Biz Markie, Slick Rick & Doug E. Fresh, Coheed & Cambria & (my personal favorites) DEVO!!
If your reading this, send us dry thoughts!
It was awesome & I have so much more to say about it but I must run to the post office now.....
