Even the Pixies Celebrate the Rescue of the Chilean Miners
Andrew Youssef/OC Weekly
The Pixies headlined their first-ever show in Santiago, Chile last night--the same day that 33 miners were rescued from 69 days of being trapped 2000 feet below ground.
Lead singer Black Francis said they were so moved by the story, they wanted to do something to say how much the band was affected by the events in Chile.
"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." (What, no Oakleys?)
