When a band like the PIXIES decide to have a "year" they make it count. So in July long time bassist for the band Kim Deal decides to call it quits. In all fairness they did take a 15 year or so hiatus, but have been touring together again since '05ish. The week she quit the band released a new single "Bagboy" and shortly after that announced they they were going to do some shows and had hired Kim Shattuck from The Muffs to replace Deal.
Ok...then just last week Shattuck Tweets that her time as the PIXIES bassist have come to an end. Uh oh...what are they going to do? They have a pretty massive tour starting in Jan. No problem...they hire another girl to play bass AND release another video. This time on bass, it's Paz Lenchatin who has played with A Perfect Circle, ZWAN and Queens Of The Stone Age...so she's no slouch.
You will have a chance to see the PIXIES in Durham, Asheville and Atlanta...and I recomind that you do. Here are all the tour dates and the new video for "Another Toe In The Ocean".
1/15 Toronto, ON – Massey Hall, CANADA ( with Fidlar)
Hear Macaulay Culkin's The Velvet Underground cover band called The Pizza Underground. All their songs are about pizza!
Welcome to Dec. I pictured it colder...but I do live at the beach. Some have asked and the answer is yes...yes I did run (and walk a bit...maybe a lot) an 8K on Thanksgiving morning. I did my first 5K a week ago this past Sat. and thought "how much harder can 3 more K's be?" Guess what...it's harder. I did manage to do it in 57 minutes and once again did not come in last. Hell I didn't even have to trip that 9 year old girl again from the 5K because she was going to beat me. Not shabby.
The strange thing is when I have told people I'm doing this more often than not I get "really???? Why? Is there a reason?" It's like everyone thinks its Dr. orders or something like that. Can't a guy just want to try to get in shape...or at least semi shape???
Anyway, last nights show was a bit different. Recently New West released the "Songs For Slim" compilation which is made up of a bunch of 7" singles that some artists released and auctioned off, with proceeds going to help Slim Dunlap of The Replacements show had a major stroke around a year and a half ago. Since there are some songs that Paul & Tommy did together (also released a 4 song cover EP with the same name). Well...how can one pick which song or 2 to play off an album with artists like Frank Black, Jeff Tweedy, Lucinda Williams and more??? You are right...you can't. So I decided to play the entire album. Of course I had to throw in a few Mats songs as well...how can one not?

Have a great week.
