“Hi, we’re the Pixies. We’re a rock band.”

Pixies @ Newport Folk Fest 006, originally uploaded by bwventril.

Just watched the Pixies at Newport DVD, courtesy of Amazon DVD rental. A mellow, acoustic gig from an American folk festival. It’s good, although odd to hear subdued versions of River Euphrates and I Bleed. Reminds me of listening to Greg play Gouge Away on his acoustic guitar, back when he was living in a cabin in the woods in upstate New York.
