If you've never gotten a chance to see the Pixies live, you're in the majority. The band was broken up for much the 90's and early 2000's. Despite reuniting in 2004, they have only visited WNY a small handful of times.
Fortunately, Buffalo has the next best thing. Crackity Jones, a most excellent Pixies tribute band, will be performing tonight at DBGB's along with Deathbells and the Screaming Jeans (9pm, $3). Expect to hear a diverse mix of b-sides as well as Pixies favorites, including the classics "Where is my Mind," "Velouria," and "Debaser" (at least I hope). The Pixies are awesome and should be celebrated. I'm glad that Crackity Jones is up to the task.
