You're So Pretty When You're Faithful to Me

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

What is the matter with you people? Why are there still tickets available for the Pixies show at the Greek theater tomorrow? What are you waiting for? Do you want to sit around for another ten years and hope they reunite again? Do you realize how old they'll be then? Or how old you'll be? Trust us: you'll be old. Do we need to remind you that the Pixies made one of the greatest albums ever recorded? And that they influenced one of the most legendary bands of all time, along with countless crappier bands? And that no one thought they would ever, ever get back together? Don't you realize how lucky you are to have this opportunity?Come on. Go buy tickets. No, seriously. Buy them. Buy them now. You won't be disappointed. Why are you even still reading this post? Why haven't you clicked over here (or here – or even here) and bought a pair of seats for you and someone whose eternal gratitude you'd like to earn? How many links do we have to put up? If you haven't clicked any of the previous links, what are the odds you'll click this one? Or this one? How about one more? Still here? Okay, well, in that case we'll just stop posting links altogeth—psyche!

Okay, fine, we give up. Maybe this is more your speed.

Or this.
