Concert Reviews

Pixies at Fillmore Auditorium, 2/13/14

PIXIES at FILLMORE AUDITORIUM | 2/13/14 Like the Ramones, the Pixies took stage and had little in the way of breaks between songs. There was no banter, no awkward joking and no meandering dialogue while anyone tuned or tried to read a set list. The only interruptions came when the band teased a bit of "Wave of Mutilation" before dropping off into the ferocious "Something Against You." And then later, when there was a flub in the beginning of "Here Comes Your Man," the outfit had a quick laugh and then quickly figuring out where things broke down and started again.
