Fresh Waves of Mutilation From the Pixies

Sated indie legends revisit Doolittle at Hammerstein Ballroom

Monday's show is thrilling when it gives us exactly what we want, including a couple encores full of pre- or post-Doolittle jams—"Where Is My Mind," "Gigantic," etc. But that initial burst of less-beloved "B-sides" resonates, too, precisely because it's not what we want, but still delivers a jolt of malicious unreality that the Pixies slowly, carefully, deviously trained us to need. We may not know how to do the Manta Ray. But we are suddenly overtaken with the desperate need to learn.
