"I guess we're kind of like a Led Zeppelin that tours," frontman Black Francis (aka Frank Black) tells Spinner. "More accurately, we would be like a Velvet Underground that tours. We have a catalog and it has a certain cache and it seems to always be kind of 'current' over and over ... some of it, anyway, has a certain timeless quality to it."
On that note, two decades after 'Doolittle' first hit shelves, the Pixies are performing the album in its entirety. The set list also features the original bonus tracks and B-sides totaling 21 songs in all. 12 of those songs are accompanied by short films that were created specifically for this tour, projected onto a massive backdrop video screen in conjunction with an artsy production. In other words, if it ain't broke, don't fix it -- but nobody's gonna complain about adding a sick light show.
