NonCOMM Recap: Slow-burning indie rock classics fill Pixies Free at Noon set - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

I learned a few things while watching  iconic rockers Pixies totally shred at Free At Noon today. First, angsty 90s rock will never ever go out of style. It just won’t. Second, I hope and dream to be as half as cool as them someday.

The brooding band brought their signature strange n’ moody slow-burning garage jams by playing songs new and old this afternoon. Kicking off the set with a taste of their September-released album, Head Carrier, was “All the Saints” which then quickly delved into oldie, “La La Love You” and their classic, angst-anthem “Where is My Mind?” Closing out the show was the darkly hypnotic “Caribou,” where frontman Black Francis growled and screeched away atop crunchy guitar fuzz.

Catch the Pixies again when they hit up the Electric Factory in a few days on May 23rd. Find info on tickets here and check out photos from the set below.
