The Pixies are one of the most influential American acts of all time. Initially spanning the late eighties and early nineties, they created the blueprint for alternative rock that would be followed and embellished upon by everyone from grunge to Britpop. After 10 years apart, the Pixies reformed in 2004.
Around 6pm on a warm Saturday in August, the Pixies took the stage of the world-famous Newport Folk Festival to perform one of their most unique sets ever. Playing a completely acoustic performance, the reunited lineup of Frank Black, Kim Deal, Joey Santiago and David Lovering give a unique spin to 22 fan favorites!

Because of the quick cutting video in Pixies Sell Out it looks like the Club Date is the concert video to have.
Pixies fans will buy this DVD regardless, but I think it may make a great introduction for new listeners. If you're just curious about the Pixies, give it a listen. Sing along a little. You'll like it.
Wow though, I get chills in River Euphraties when Black yells "one sip FROM THE SALTY WINE" so raw and so good. I think the quality is pretty good considering they are doing -in acoustic- their old albums from 15 some years ago.
You have to love when Black yelps like a dog in Crackity Jones, I LOVE IT!
Also Kim Deal is solid throughout and still has a pretty voice.
If you like the Pixies, you can't go wrong with this disk. Even though the songs are acoustic, the raw energy pours through in classic Pixies style.
