Pixies play Bumbershoot!
So I've gotten about 3 emails about this, so I'm gonna post it here...It confirmed via the Bumbershoot site, so I guess it's really happening!
I'm betting they're hoping to sell out the event early, which would (aside from putting more money in One Reel's coffers) probably give them better bargaining power negotiating for other acts. Personally, I don't know if it's worth it - I tend to avoid huge festivals, the crowds and hassle aren't worth it to me.
Still, it's the muthafuckin' Pixies!!
