Pixies to Doolittle, again

I'm not a fan of reunion tours or nostalgia acts, but when it's the Pixies those preconceived notions can be thrown out the window. Similar to The Boss's scheduled performances of complete albums, the Pixies will play all of their classic 1989 album Doolittle—one of the greatest alternative rock albums of all-time—on their upcoming tour. Whether it's Kim Deal's thumping bass melody on "Here Comes Your Man," the power chord frenzy of "Debaser" or the shiver-inducing combination of Joey Santiago's riffs and Francis Black's ranting in "Hey," the ravenous and wild Doolittle hasn't lost a step. If you missed it the first time around, it's time to play catch up.
