Weezer, Pixies, Sleigh Bells

If Weezer represented upbeat pop-rock and Sleigh Bells provided the punch of heavy, modern rock, the Pixies were the glue holding it all together on a night that featured all three bands. Wednesday night's co-headliner event showcased the high energy of Sleigh Bells kicking things off. Pixies spent more than an hour proving why they've had staying power - except for a decade-long hiatus in the mid-90s to mid-00s. Frontman Black Francis sounded better than ever, merging spoken word with on-point screams and everything between. Weezer hit the stage with "Buddy Holly" and never let up with hit after hit to keep the entire crowd singing along. Both headliners played setlists of more than 20 songs each. Overall, it's one of the best rock shows Charlotte's seen this summer.
