    Pixies Dedicate Chile Show to Rescued Miners

    The band plays 33 songs, one for each miner

    Last night, Pixies played Teatro La Cupula in Santiago, their first-ever headlining show in Chile. Famously, it was the very same day that 33 Chilean miners trapped underground for more than two months were dramatically rescued. That led the band to play their longest show ever: 33 songs, one for each miner rescued.
    In a press release, frontman Black Francis says, "We were so moved by this story, by how many lives had been affected by this, and how the Chilean people banded together to support what can only be described as a miracle. We wanted to do something to show how affected we were by this, so we played a special set at tonight's show, 33 songs for the 33 miners, the longest set we've ever played as a band. We found out five minutes before we went on stage that all of the miners had safely reached the surface. This was definitely one of the most meaningful show we've ever played."
    Below, you can see the show's setlist and a video of Francis introducing the set in Spanish.

    damn, i almost bought tickets for this but decided against it because i've already seen them and i've spent too much money on show tickets lately.
    pretty cool of them though.

    Pixies are made of awesome.
