Live Video: Pixies

photo by Dave Lichterman (view set)

What other band is even nearly as iconic to KEXP DJs and listeners as Pixies? Their early independent spirit sent a beacon for other artists to follow and their eventual rise from arty cult rockers to alternative music mainstays proved that unique and uncompromising artists could make a huge and lasting impact. Hardly a day goes by here at KEXP when the Pixies aren’t played on air, so it was an amazing thrill for us to debut our new live streaming video service with everyone’s favorite band!

We encourage you to take part of each exciting moment of KEXP’s new live streaming service (find out more here), but we also want to make sure that you don’t miss a single incredible moment that goes by, so we now present to you this exclusive, stripped down performance of Pixies performing songs new and old — including the classic “Monkey Gone to Heaven” — plus an in depth interview with DJ Cheryl Waters for you to watch at your leisure. It’s time for you to go to heaven now:
