God dammit! Jesus Christ on a pogostick! Two weeks ago, there was a rumor that the Pixies were playing the McDonald Theater on April 27th. I ran around the internet looking for solid information and couldn't find much of anything. Meanwhile, the theater's website stubbornly refused to confirm or deny the rumors. The band's official site still hasn't posted tour dates.
Tickets quietly went on sale on Saturday and sold out in five minutes flat. Again, I reiterate, GOD DAMMIT.
First: Yes, this has been pitched as a "warm up tour," suggesting dates at larger venues in the future. Regardless, why are The Pixies futzing around a boring little hippie burg when they could playing a "warm up" gig in Portland? It's all that rotten Kesey kid's fault, isn't it?
Second: By the time they get to Europe, they'll probably break up again, thus no big city dates. Lame!
Third: I hate too much demand and not enough supply.
