    this is a pure money grab. they all hate each other and the shows could not be more boring even though they sound pretty good.

    I've never been able to "get into" the Pixies. They're not for me.

    They seem like they just want to get through the show as quickly as possible.
    they play note for note without any interaction between bandmates.

    I liked surfer rosa, I'm sure that is the typical answer, but for me it went downhill quick after that

    Gotcha. I wouldnt have expected them to get too improvisational...if I would have been able to make a show, I would have went with realistic expectations.

    No. They are an "alternative" band. They dabble in indie, surf, psychedelic rock. They've been around for almost 30 years, so you may want to broaden your horizons and check them out.

    Ahh.. My mistake.

    They have a bit of a jamband fan following, since they are from the East Coast, and jamband folks have a eclectic taste in music.

    I wouldn't recommend it to a fan of the music.
