Doolittle 20 anniversary tour is all over. Kinda sad; kinda glad.
The man formerly and once again known as Black Francis — or maybe he’s Frank Black to you, or, even, Charles Michael Kittridge Thompson IV — is 46 today. To celebrate the birthday of the songwriter whose lyrics gave name to this site, check out the Pixies’ classic 15-song set opening for the Throwing Muses at London’s Town & Country Club on May 1, 1988. Back in the present, the Pixies this weekend begin the Canadian leg of the band’s 20th anniversary Doolittle tour.
