Two nights after seeing the Feelies perform one of the early 80’s legendary albums start to finish, we saw Pixies perform one of the late 80’s greatest albums in similar fashion. While the Pixies have been accused in some circles of coasting on reputation, it was clear from our upfront position at Monday night’s packed show that the band had a ton of fun performing Doolittle in its entirety. Opening the set with a four “b-sides”, as Kim narrated, the band then worked its way through the album the old-fashioned way — side one and side two. While the performance was quite faithful to the record, the live version is more animated and fast-paced. Indeed, the set proper ended in less than hour. Pixies returned however for two sets of encores, including more b-sides and finished the night with two of their best known “non-Doolittle” songs.

This show is available as a “DOOLITTLE LIVE” recording through the Pixies website [HERE].

There is an alternative audience recording available HERE for those who have already purchased the “Doolittle Live” recording from the Pixies
