Chuck Davis was a devotee of the Pixies in their heyday, and those songs imprinted on his young impressionable brain. As it turns out, years of singing along with Pixies songs proved perfect training for channeling some of that Black Francis magic.
So, every few years the musicians of Surfer Rosa take a break from their other Omaha bands to rock out Pixies-style for a one-off show. Hell, the Pixies themselves are still going strong. You don’t need Surfer Rosa to get the live Pixies experience. But for Chuck, Rob, Rob, and Jessica, a Surfer Rosa show is an excuse to hang out with friends and celebrate the music they love together. And they nail it.
