Regardless of whether or not you consider the Pixies’s current lineup to be on par with the band’s heyday—or, since the departure of bassist-singer Kim Deal two years ago—the influential indie-rock outfit can still pack ’em in at the last minute. So the crowds came out when the group played a surprise show at the Metro on Wednesday, which they announced the day of the concert. I couldn’t make it, and I’m sure many others who wanted to go couldn’t get in either; fortunately veteran photographer Bobby Talamine was on the scene, and captured the latest incarnation of the Pixies in all their glory. So why not throw on Doolittle, crank the volume up as high as you can without disturbing your coworkers, and take a peek at Talamine’s photos below.
