Acoustic & Electric Live Blu-ray

On 23 August 2010, Eagle Rock Entertainment release the Acoustic & Electric Live Blu-ray by The Pixies [Cat. No. ERBRD5063]. This is the first Pixies release on Blu-ray and features extensive bonus features.

The Pixies are one of the most influential US acts of all time. Initially spanning the late eighties and early nineties they created the blueprint for alternative rock that would be followed and embellished upon by everyone from grunge to Britpop. After 10 years apart the Pixies reformed in 2004. This Blu-ray brings together two concerts from 2005: their first ever all acoustic performance filmed at the famous Newport Folk Festival and their Club Date concert: Live At The Paradise Club, Boston. Originally released as separate DVDs these have now been combined in their entirety onto a single Blu-ray disc.

On top of all that, "Acoustic & Electric Live" also features original home movie footage of the Pixies live at TT The Bear's in Boston from October 1986. This features a dozen more great tracks: The Holiday Song; I'm Amazed; Rock A My Soul; Broken Face; I've Been Tired; Caribou; Isla De Encanta; Nimrod's Son; Ed Is Dead; Build High; Boom Chickaboom; Down To The Well.
