Last night the Pixies played the first of 4 doolittle shows at Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC. They opened with 3 B-sides from the album, and then played Doolittle straight through. During their encores they played a few hits from other albums. They sounded excellent. Really really tight. Brooklyn band Black Gold opened the show to a lukewarm reception. Originally Bernard Sumner's new project Bad Lieutenant was scheduled to open. Tonight Jay Reatard opens. Tomorrow, Kyp Malone of TV on the Radio's side project Rain Machine Opens. Tickets are still available for the 11:45 PM late show on Wednesday. The Pixies will be on Fallon tonight.
Here are some videos from the show:
