take me away to nowhere plains
So, I rarely point out new shows, just because pointing out every new show takes a ridiculous amount of time, but it's worth noting that the Pixies are at the Orpheum on May 3rd, where they'll play Doolittle front-to-back. Presale tix are on tomorrow at the ungodly hour of 9am EST (yeah, you read that right) at their official website and the regular on-sale is a week later (though at 9am local time).
The first time I saw the Pixies on their initial reunion tour, I didn't think I could pick a better setlist--they played pretty much everything I could have dreamed of hearing. But now that this reunion seems to have become pretty permanent, I can't think of a better tour to see them on than this one.
