Alternative rockers Pixies rocked The Fillmore on Thursday night in front of a packed house of adoring fans. Original and founding members Black Francis and Joey Santiago were joined by their original drummer David Lovering for the night’s festivities. Noticeably the bands original bassist Kim Deal was not in the lineup, as she left the band in 2013. Fact is however, her replacement on this tour, Paz Lenchantin, is perfectly capable of filling Kim’s shoes, and she did just that. Composed and talented, she meshed perfectly with the rest of the band for a 36 song set including 3 encores. The band managed to really keep it going throughout the long set staying musically tight and keeping the energy in the building high. The music, combined with a theatrical lighting display which included some intense back lighting, made for an artful and enthralling experience.
