Pixies - Point Theatre 1991

 Pixies - Point Theatre, 19th June 1991

I hitchhiked from Cork to Dublin with a friend for this gig. It's hard to believe that it was 20 years ago. It was my first time in Dublin for a gig and to say I was excited would be a huge understatement. Support bands were Power of Dreams and Chimera who both played well. At the time I thought the Pixies put on a great show but looking back on it all I can really remember was a brilliant version of the Mary Chain's Head On. I still remember having pints in the Stag's Head earlier in the day and spotting Mike Scott  of The Waterboys at the end of the bar. I recall getting really excited, "Jesus, it's Mike Scott." Innocent times.
