This weekend I went to my first Pixies show, at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley. I'm not a rabid Pixies fan, but they are good, and this reconciliation tour is nothing if not historic (now I'll always be able to say “I saw the first Pixies reunion tour.”). Lori made t-shirts for the event, which pretty much guaranteed that we had the coolest ones there.

Surrounded by thousands of adoring fans, most of which were more of the singing-along-with-every-song variety than the get-up-and-dance-wildly sort, you could tell it was kind of a special experience for everyone there.

You should make a manta ray shirt with the manta ray embedded in the famous window of the Mandelbrot set (the part that looks sorta like a turtle).

I saw them at the V-Festival in the UK (which was only like 10 miles from my house) - I just went to see them. We had the same thing, with everyone knowing the words, that's got to be cool for the band.

I don't know if they were the same with you, but they didn't break between any songs - at all, which was .. interesting. (They all looked like they were having fun, except for Frank Black).
