I got no lips, I got no tongue

The Pixies' performance was competent and professional if not tremendously inspired. Only Kim Deal seemed particularly excited about playing (she was also the only one with a hair on her head). Still, the show was one of the best I've seen, and it was because of the music itself. I found myself thinking that Doolittle and its b-side Surfer Rosa (both sampled heavily on last night's setlist) could be rock music's greatest hits album. My thinking is slightly less hyperbolic today, but still, those are some fine songs.

Also striking was the swag at the merch table. I know this is the Pixies' "Sellout Tour," but I mean, what's with the shoulder bags.
