Pixies
Pixies
The Boston-formed Pixies have been acclaimed as the most influential pioneering band of the late 80s alt/rock movement. Their five studio releases and initial six years together effectively blazed the path for groups like Nirvana, Radiohead and Pearl Jam to rise to superstardom. The Pixies disbanded in 1993 and launched their reunion tour in April, 2004 when virtually every, single date sold out within minutes and fans traveled hundreds of miles to attend a show. The Pixies shattered sales records around the world, SPIN called it 2004's "Comeback of the Year," and the band wrapped up 2004 in New York City with 24,000 tickets sold for an unprecedented eight-night, sold-out run at Hammerstein Ballroom. The Pixies continued their reunion tour in 2005, and then, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of their 1989 album Doolittle, launched the "Doolittle Tour" on October 1, 2009 in Dublin, performing the entire album, beginning to end. The SRO tour was so successful, it lasted for two years, taking the band to 18 countries, playing 117 shows.


In May, 2013, it was announced that founding member Kim Deal had decided to leave the Pixies. Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering made it clear that Kim's place in the band would always be there for her.

Meg Myers
"People flock to Los Angeles for many reasons, one of them being to make music. Meg Myers, a former Jehovah's Witness from the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, now calls L.A. home to her fierce vocals. Having just released a new EP, Daughter In The Choir, March 6 (which you can download for free here), Myers culls from 90s alternative music and has been compared to some of music's most powerful female voices, including Fiona Apple, Alanis Morissette and Sinéad O'Connor." --LAist
