Pixies' new website archives past concerts, free 4-song download

History has proven the Pixies were well ahead of their time in 1989 when they first released their influential album Doolittle. Houstonians are still more likely to hear a Pixies song at IKEA than they are on any Houston radio station, but their September 20th performance at Verizon Wireless Theater in celebration of Doolittle’s 20th anniversary reaffirmed the band’s important role in modern music.

The Pixies are once again leading the way, this time giving fans a convenient to share their concert experience long after their ears have stopped ringing. The Pixies’ newly redesigned website contains a ‘Shows’ section. To the band's best recollection, it contains a separate page for every show in their concert history. By placing the appropriate hashtag to their Flickr photos, YouTube videos or Tweets about any Pixies show, fans can have their content included on the website. To demonstrate how easy this is, if you shot a video at the recent Houston show, you would simply add the hashtag #pixies-2010-09-20 when posting it to YouTube. Automatically, the video would then show up on the page for that particular show. The same hashtag will also work for Flickr photos and Tweets.

If that isn’t reason enough for you to check out the new site, the band is current giving away a free 4-song download of live tracks from their 2009 tour. Simply provide your email address and you will receive live versions of ‘Dancing The Manta Ray,’ ‘Monkey Gone To Heaven,’ ‘Crackity Jones’ and ‘Gouge Away.’ The Pixies are in the process of adding entire live shows to the website spanning their career. New shows are being posted every week and can be purchased for download at the very reasonable price of $3.99 for the entire show. Those preferring an actual CD pay the same price plus shipping and handling.
