Twenty years and a lot of separation didn’t matter last night when the Pixies got together and recreated Doolittle in its very loud, very awesome entirety. The Asheville audience went crazy for the pioneering alt-rock band, too, shaking it a lot more than one typically sees at an indie-rock show.
Here’s the setlist, and I couldn’t have been much happier with it. A few highlights:
– The band played the quieter version of “Wave of Mutilation” from Pump up the Volume.
– Drummer David Lovering tossed a drumstick to guitarist Joey Santiago, who actually caught it, and played his guitar with it.
– Watching Kim Deal sing the background “ooh-ooohs” during “Where is My Mind.” Her voice is still soft and lovely.
– Frank Black hitting all the high and low notes, and howling.
