If you were a young adult anywhere near the “alternative” music scene in 1989 when the Pixies’ “Doolittle” album was originally released, you remember its buzz. This was no “ordinary” record, and it came from a decidedly un-“ordinary” band, at least for their time. Its significance has more than survived the test of time, which is exactly why the band was at the Fillmore Auditorium on Monday night to perform the whole damn thing — along with some subsequently released B-sides from around the same time.

If you were there, you’ve likely noted all of Pixies’ progeny — all those bands that call Pixies’ easy beauty their own style.

And even if you weren’t — like better than half the crowd Monday night, maybe you were more into Teletubbies or Barney than Black Francis or Kim Deal back then — chances are you still have a pretty good idea of their lasting influence… whether you know it or not.
