I can’t sleep, so I might as well post. It’s a mindfuck to look out the window and see lights turning on and people starting their day when I’ve spent the past few hours trying to sleep before giving up. I need to get some sleeping pills in my life. Oh well, whatever, nevermind. I actually got into the Pixies because of Kurt Cobain. (You caught that segueway, right?) I was really into Nirvana in middle school and Kurt always talked about how much he loved the Pixies. Years later and I barely ever listen to Nirvana but the Pixies are a staple in my auditory diet. Here they are performing on Jimmy Fallon a few days ago. Apparently Fallon had viewers vote via Twitter for what song they wanted to see and “Hey” was the winner. Good choice. Below is “Debaser”. Also awesome. They may be way past their prime, but they still sound pretty good.
