Pixies at The Olympia, November 18th, 2013

Pixies at The Olympia last night. What was brought home to me this time was the importance elf the two guitars to their sound. Oftentimes with bands, you can't hear a rhythm guitar because the lead overpowers it. With Pixies, Frank Black's guitar is the droning growl that underpins Joey Santiago's bursts of distorted noise coloration. Great shift put in by Dave Lettering on drums, and the new Kim is certainly the real deal (sorry!)
