The Pixies + Modest Mouse

We finally got to see the Pixies. Fortunately, we had pavilion seats at Merriweather, as it poured! The Pixies came out, and hammered through song after song, and did not utter a single word during the entire performance. I am amazed at how great Black’s voice is.

Modest Mouse sounded really good, too.

I drove out to Columbia twice in one day – I went in the afternoon for a colleague’s memorial service for his wife’s sudden passing. I rushed home and we went right back for this show.

We arrived home at a quarter past midnight, went to sleep, and woke at 4:30 to head to Memphis for a whirlwind weekend!
