The Pixies

Wednesday, The Pixies will bring their iconic alt-rock to Denver's Fillmore Auditorium. The band achieved a decades-spanning success with 1989's "Doolittle" before breaking up in 1991. They got back together in 2004, touring on the "old" music, and released albums "Indie Cindy" in 2014 and "Head Carrier" in 2016. "If there's anything I could say to any audience that hasn't seen the Pixies, I could say that we're not an anti-social band. We are just delivering what we do best, which is the music," drummer David Lovering told the Detroit Metro Times this month. The band's song legacy includes "Here Comes Your Man," "Where Is My Mind?" and "Wave of Mutilation." The show starts at 8. Tickets are $49.75-$55 on

"Play: Works by Pattie Lee Becker"

Only a few weeks are left to see this exhibit of Denver artist and designer Pattie Lee Becker's fine-line drawings and soft sculptures at the Denver Botanic Gardens' Gates Garden Court Gallery. "My work is driven by a deep love for working with my hands, repeat pattern, color, systems and process. Frequently walking the line between the fantastic and real, it seeks to investigate the world we live in with humor and reflection," Becker says on her website, The exhibit ends Nov. 5.
