PIXIES live in Birmingham

Pixies and The Big Moon at o2 Academy

At the weekend I visited Crystal Palace a place I’d only been to once before…to see Pixies. (turns out it was 1991) and although I’ve seen the band a fair few times before they split and when they reformed I’d never photographed them.

Last night was that opportunity as they played the o2 Academy in Birmingham.  Support for the evening was The Big Moon. I saw this band a couple of years ago and liked their enthusiasm and music all of which was on show last night.

Pixies were Pixies. Loud, like really loud which was emphasised by being in  the smallest venue I’ve seen them in.  As for the photography, one of the nights where putting the lights on happened just as the photographers (and there were a lot) left the pit  - so moody silhouettes is what we are allowed to take, ah well its Pixies.
