LoudQUIETloud-A Film About The PixiesStreaming Video - 2013
The Pixies are an iconic and fearless American alternative rock band formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1986. When these college rock darlings broke up in 1992, their fans were shocked and dismayed. But when band members Black Francis, Joey Santiago, Kim Deal, and David Lovering reunited in 2004, those same fans and legions of new listeners were ecstatic, and filled with high hopes that the Pixies would claim their status as phenoms in the history of rock. This documentary follows the rehearsals and the warm-up shows for the full-fledged, sold-out reunion tour. It also catalogs, in the cinema verite style of the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter" and Bob Dylan's "Don't Look Back", the less glamorous side of the touring band lifestyle, getting as close to this enigmatic act as anyone is ever likely to get. LoudQUIETloud captures the Pixies during a once-in-a-lifetime chance at rock and roll redemption.
