When The Pixies announced they would be doing a second leg on their Doolittle tour I was extremely excited, but at the same time very left off a Los Angeles date. After looking at the dates that were closest to Los Angeles, Vegas became the most logical choice. Plus, we can’t deny Vegas is VEGAS!!!
I had all ready seen the Pixies on their Doolittle tour two times prior to this show, but I was still very excited to see it one more time. They once again opened the set with a few Doolittle B sides before rocking out Doolittle in its entirety.
Overall the quality of the performance was pretty good, although at times they seemed to be a little out of tune on the vocals. This didn’t bother me in the slightest, as it seems to be the pixies style and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
The band was full of energy throughout the show and the crowd responded favorably. I do have to give mega props to the Vegas crowd, as they were far more into the performance then the Los Angeles crowd had been. When The Pixies left the stage the crowd went wild and demanded the encore in a way that I had not seen in quite some time. The band actually ended up doing two encores. Both of which the crowd earned and deserved.
The Pixies Doolittle tour is honestly a show I would go see on a yearly basis. I hope they are able to continue to expand their fan base and make it back to the states sooner then later. -lorn
