Pixies Plan D.C. Stop in ‘Doolittle’ North American Tour

Let this Thursday's Grand Duchy (Frank Black & wife Violet Clark) show at the Black Cat be a warm up for District Pixies fans. Via Spin and P4K (Emphatic/ecstatic bolding mine):

Frontman Frank Black tells SPIN.com that the Boston-born quartet will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their groundbreaking release, Doolittle, by playing the album in its entirety in Oakland, Los Angeles, Seattle, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, New York City, and "maybe Montreal" this fall.

This means a set list that for sure includes "Debaser," "Hey," and "Gouge Away." Awesome. After the jump, some Grand Duchy and Pixies ca. Doolittle's 1989 release.

    Umm, YES!!!!!

    This "Bands Playing Classic Albums In Their Entirety" thing is played out. It's one thing if the album is Sgt. Pepper or Double Nickels or some kind of concept album. But Doolittle was just a regular - if insanely awesome - album. I don't see how hearing it live would be a demonstrably different experience than listening to it on CD at a very loud volume.

    wow, dave. what are your feelings about going to shows? i mean, to say that listening any song on any album at home is the same experience as going to a live show... i don't get it.

    also, give me doolittle over sgt. pepper any day.
