Pixies - Live at the Paradise DVD Review

by Zane Ewton

Another Pixies DVD. This time for the Club Date series, the Pixies perform for about 200 fans at the Paradise Club in Boston, the same place where one of their first gigs was almost 20 years ago. The bonus features include footage from that fateful show so many years ago. It's completely unlistenable and unwatchable, but is an interesting relic of the infancy of the Pixies.

The 2005 show is considerably different. The Pixies were a few days removed from their performance at the Newport Folk Festival, which was also filmed for DVD release. The good vibes of that show followed the Pixies into Boston.

Frank Black asks David Lovering to sing an impromptu "La La Love You" before a single note is played. After a false start and some jovial rambling by Black, the band gets it together and plows through all the required songs.

Joey Santiago solos on "Vamos", Kim Deal sings "Gigantic" and Black wails like a banshee. The band covered "Been Around the World" at Newport and they play an electrified version here.

Another Pixies DVD with the same set list is completely unnecessary at this point. The world waits with baited breath to see if they will ever be bothered to release something new.

The reunion was fantastic. Now what?
