The Pixies | State Theatre | 10/11/14
You can't talk about '90s indie rock without mentioning the Pixies -- even if they broke up early in the decade. The band left an influential ringing in everyone's ears that has lasted to this day. The band will be marking 10 years since they got back together -- which launched in Minneapolis at the Fine Line in 2004 -- with a return to the Twin Cities. This time, they will be armed with new music from their latest album, Indie Cindy.

Gimme Noise caught up drummer David Lovering in Los Angeles as he was prepping for the tour to talk about growing up and getting wiser and how they have adapted to the changes in the music industry.

Lee Fields | Cedar Cultural Center | Thursday, September 17
Born in North Carolina, soul singer Lee Fields has held a sustained career that's been on a long steady ascent. An incredible talent, the 63-year-old has maintained a vintage soul sound with his band, the Expressions. Truth and Soul Records put out another fantastic Fields album in 2014 called Emma Jean, a tribute to his late mother. Once again produced by Truth and Soul co-founder Leon Michaels, the record features Black Key Dan Auerbach, who lends some vocals and guitar and also wrote a song, "Paralyzed."

Since he started singing and released his first single in 1969, Fields embodies a similar style to the late James Brown and a steadfast faith in the divine. Gimme Noise spoke to Fields on the phone last week from his home in Plainville, New Jersey. Gearing up for another tour that includes a kick-off tomorrow night at the Cedar, he was able to talk what moves him spiritually and musically, and the voice behind the new songs on Emma Jean.

Old Familiar Chime | Turf Club | Friday, September 19

It seemed like the time was right to do something," says Old Familiar Chime festival organizer Chris Berry. "There are so many people out there and another resurgence going on now." Five years after the death of the mercurial Jack Rose, the man who helped lead a revival of the hypnotic, experimental branch of folk fingerpicking in the early 2000s, a host of players both old and young continue flying the flag first waved by John Fahey.
