Pixies

Wynn-Encore 3131 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV

May 12th & 13th, 2023 • 8PM at Encore Theater at the Wynn, Las Vegas | Since their formation in Boston, Mass. in 1986, the Pixies have been a staple of the alternative rock circuit. Headed by vocalist Black Francis and known primarily for their raucous instrumental solos, they've tapped into the mainstream consciousness with tunes such as Where is My Mind, Here Comes Your Man and Monkey Gone to Heaven. As the members came from various musical backgrounds and possessed eclectic tastes, the band's sound is unique, but at least two have named Iggy Pop as inspiration. Critics have referred to the music as an unorthodox marriage of surf music and punk rock. The Pixies have been performing and touring extensively for over three decades and regularly play at venues and festivals around the world. Francis met guitarist Joey Santiago while both were students at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. After recruiting Kim Deal as bassist and David Lovering to take over the drum kit, the quartet began to play shows in the Boston area, later signing a contract with indie label 4AD. They released three albums-Come on Pilgrim, Surfer Rosa and Doolittle-between 1987 and 1989, but a growing rift between the band's members caused a split in 1993. A little more than a decade later, the Pixies reunited for a full tour, which included four nights at London's Brixton Academy-the fastest-selling run in the theater's history. During this reunion tour, they also played at a number of music festivals, including Lollapalooza and the Newport Folk Festival.
