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.

When frontman Neil Fallon screamed, it was anything but typical. He belted out songs with a voice that recalled all of the bluesy power of Robert Plant, peppered with a riotous style that Zack de la Rocha shakes on Rage fans, and more than a little Mike Watt mania, and we all knew we weren’t being serenaded so much as we were being schooled.

Whatever it is Lemmy’s got coursing through his veins, I want some. In fact, we could all use a dose of the drug he’s taking that’s helping him live his life in reverse. He’s continuously getting younger.

The last time I saw Motörhead was with Black Sabbath at the Paramount Theatre, some 10 years ago, and Lemmy looked older then than he did Saturday night at the Fillmore fronting his legendary metal band.
