we love the pixies

15 Oct

Well OK I love the Pixies. Always have, always will. But two days ao while on tour in Chile the 33 miners were finally released from the collapsed mine. YAY!

As a show of respect and celebration the Pixies played 33 sogs in their set that night, one for each miner.

Nice one huh?

Interestingly though they also shared this thought on their facebook site the following day. Now normally they get hundreds of responses to evne their most inane facebook posts. But this little, simple yet touching tribute has generated thousands of responses. All expressing their gratitude and respect for the gesture.

Well done them I say. What a great way to reward your audience.
