Tuesday, April 19, 2011: Thom and I go to Toronto to see the Pixies, reunited for a Doolittle tour. Guam and Jekyll sneak into Massey Hall in our backpack and protect our swag, of course.
The show begins with a high-speed version of Un Chien Andalou:
and then the band appears, dressed in street clothes and looking for a good time.
“We had to learn some of these b-sides sides,” Kim says.
Highlights include Frank hoisting his pants in nearly every song, the girl in the left balcony shaking her booty and generally going crazy, Dave’s show-stealing humility during “La La Love You,” …
… Into the White…
After two amazing encores–unexpected Pilgrim songs–Kim says goodnight to each member of the band and then to the audience.
Special thanks to our friend Sean K. Robb for letting us happy punks crash at his place.
