Growing up, I was influenced by a lot of different genres of music, and different artists. We had vinyl and CDs all over the house. My parents played lots of music all the time. I can’t remember a time when the house was completely quiet and rid of any sounds of music. My brothers and I all played instruments. Guitar, drums, and piano. I think that’s why I have such an eclectic music taste. I was immersed in music. I recall having Pixies albums laying around the house. The Pixies are one of the most innovative and influential rock bands ever.
The Pixies formed in 1986 in Boston, Massachusetts. The band’s music contains elements that are defined as psychedelia, noise pop, hard rock, and surf rock. Although the band was from America, they had more success in the United Kingdom, mainland Europe, and Israel. Their sound influenced some of the biggest bands, such as Nirvana, Radiohead, the Strokes, Bush, Blur, and Weezer. The Pixies’ split up in 1993 and reunited 2004. Their popularity grew when they got back together, which lead them to perform in sold-out world tours. On September 30th of last year, the band released their sixth album, “Head Carrier”. This album marks the first full appearance of bassist, Paz Lenchantin. Lenchantin replaced Kim Deal, who left the band in 2013.
The Pixies are on tour with their new album and they are coming the the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Monday, December 4th. What better way to fix those Monday blues than a Pixies concert? Doors open at 7:00 pm. Tickets are still available, but hurry, they’re selling fast!
