This jagged, iconic, direct and forceful 80s Indie Rock band does not play around when it comes to holding a one-of-a-kind concert for its most intense fans in the South Bay. Buying tickets to this event will be tricky, since ticket sales will be restricted only to lucky residents living within a 200-mile radius of San Jose. Orders by residents outside a 200-mile radius of San Jose will be canceled without notice and refunds given. No – the Pixies do not mess around. This group wants to wail and bash out its famous lyrics to those who admire and understand its punk rock ethics and ingenuity. Playing favorites is the Pixies cup of tea. So, Bay Area fans that happen to hold the cherished zip codes to attend this event, it’s time to take advantage and get those tickets for a delightful grunge fest.

Also joining in the tour as opening act will be another native San Francisco band, Tower of Power. “It’s going to be a San Francisco musical delight, from past and present, moving full speed ahead into the future,” say Journey band members. Adding coolness to an already cool night, donation options will be available at the time of ticket purchases to support typhoon victims in the Philippines.
