off with the pixies

SHOW OF THE WEEK PART THREEWeeks and weeks ago the ladies of hml hobbled their cash and contacts together and managed to hook themselves up with some pre-release tix to the gig of the year. The Pixies. Ah how many, many, many years have we waited to see them in the flesh, and although one of us had to sit through staff planning meetings at work rather than the front bar of the Northcote Social Club while they played their 'secret' show (bugger!) we're still very very excited. One of the best things about this gig is that there'll be people both on stage and in the audience older than us. YAY! And who knew... Kim and Kelley Deal are avid knitters andwe've heard tales of wool throwing on stage. Really could there be anything better. Oh yes, that's right, yes... us, seeing the Pixies tonight, with Jarvis Cocker, Phoenix and in a late and unexpectedly enticing addition, The New York Dolls.

Anyway with luck we'll be recovered enough by Thursday to attend Flemo's New Values opening at the intriguingly named gallery Utopian Slumps, which by Thursday night might also be a good description for us...

as promised here are the details for the show... see you there.
