I am back home, alive and well after experiencing the surreal - the Pixies live in concert. This is what I wore to the concert - it's fuctional and weird, just like me. Pixies 'Sellout Tour' t-shirt I got on eBay, thrifted skirt, American Apparel leggings and sneakers.
The set was fantastic, mostly comprised of songs from Doolittle and Surfer Rosa (my favourites!) and I sang along and just generally freaked out the whole time. I was literally FRONT AND CENTRE and kept screaming "Kim, you're the best!" in between songs and waving at her. I could swear she smiled right at me and Anna! Kim was such a sweetheart, she kept thanking the crowd whereas Black Francis (or Charles Thompson, whatever he goes by these days) didn't even crack a smile. He didn't seem like a gracious guy, but he writes damn good music so I forgive him. It was hard to stand still long enough to take pictures, so this was the best I could do.
I also got to see Mates of State, Grizzly Bear, Paolo Nutini, Sloan, Ben Harper, Franz Ferdinand and LIGHTS (who was hysterically bad). I definitely enjoyed all the acts for the most part (sorry, Lights), but the Pixies were nothing short of epic. I can also assure you that Nosferatu, Gimli the dwarf from Lord of the Rings, Ron Weasley and Mr. Peanut are not fictional characters because I definitely saw each and every one of them lurking at the concert. My friend even got a picture of Gimli the security guard, but you're just going to have to trust me that the rest of them actually exist.
P.S. - Just to let you all know, I'll be an internet deadbeat for the next little while. I'm moving into my new apartment(!) and won't have internet there for a few weeks, so sorry if the updates/comments from me happen to slow down in volume.
