Ear on TV: Week of July 2

If you're still jonesin' for some fireworks after the 4th, look no further then this Saturday night for Austin City Limits' rerun of a triumphant performance from the Pixies. Recorded in 2004 at the tail end of their reunion tour, this episode catches the band at their full (reunited) fury. You'd think that it would've warranted a DVD release by now, but aside from bootlegs, this is your only source for the performance, so see it again (or see what you missed.)

Meanwhile, over at Sundance, this week's Abbey Road features the honey-kissed voice of Ray LaMontagne, along with Shaun Colvin and The Zutons playing in the legendary studio.

And finally, my second son is scheduled to be born later today, which should explain the brevity of my commentary (along with my absence in the coming week.) Happy 4th all!
