Great performance by Ou who came from Italy to rock the Indian Cove at the Joshua Tree Music Festival. “Lo non parlo italiano” but they sang about the important matters in life such as astrological crisis and the power of love.

The pride of Tennessee brought a three-hour plus set of country, punk and metal on Sunday at Pappy and Harriet’s.

As the show ended you could almost sense the ghost of Pappy looking down on this old Honky Tonk nodding his head in appreciation that Hank 3 lived up to his pedigree at Pappy and Harriet’s. Click on the link for a complete review written for the Coachella Valley Independent:

Last night the Pixies began their 2nd leg of their North American Tour at Humphreys in San Diego. The Pixies have new material from EP1, EP2, EP3, which combined, represents the Pixies fifth studio album Indy Cindy that has been self released under Pixiesmusic.

Humphreys is located in the San Diego bay and you could actually hear the show for free if you paddle board, kayak, or push your home made raft up against the venue’s waters edge as did a few dozen people who could not get tickets for this sold out show. 

The entire band appeared in a great mood with the stoical Joey Santiago looking very serious. Black Francis sparked up everyone and the exhilaration of the crowd was endless only muffled by the very polite security staff that kept dancing to a minimum during this nearly ninety minute set. The Pixies included “Isla de Encanta,” “Broken Face,” “U-Mass,” “Hey, “and “Caribou.”  The Pixies integrated newer material including “Magdalena,” “Greens and Blues,” and “Indy Cindy” from their newest album Indy Cindy which was well received by their fans.

Black’s howls, and squawks were faultless for this unconventional vocalist who showed his vocal range that has stood up with Pixies heavy tour schedule over the last few years.

 

David Lovering crooned the very popular “La La Love You” which was a delight. Paz Lenchantin the touring bassist appeared at ease and Paz’s backing vocals were pitch perfect. Lenchantin has been touring with the band since January with no decision being made if Kim Deal will be permanently replaced.

Joey Santiago exhibited his ability to play his guitar without touching the strings with his fingers during most of “Vamos.” David Lovering helped by tossing his drumstick that Joey used as a bow to showcase his guitar skills at one point unplugging his guitar and only relying on the guitar jack’s distortion during his guitar solo that he hit against the palm of his hand. The Pixies left the stage after “Vamos” and returned shortly to end the concert with their mega hit “Where is My Mind?”

The Pixies will be at Hollywood Bowl today and touring in a town near you.
