Despite getting stuck in snow on the way to the show, and it being near 15 degrees outside, that didn’t stop FIDLAR singer/guitarist, Zac Carper, from donning only cut-off shorts and a short-sleeve Hawaiian shirt and bopping through their zany, surfy garage rock like this huge hall was a beach party in Cali. Oh those boys.
Never the most action-packed live act, the Pixies were awesome nonetheless on the strength of all those great songs. Their new bass player, Paz Lenchantin—who has played with A Perfect Circle and Zwan—fit in fine, considering the somewhat contoversial booting of the well-liked Kim Shattuk a few months back. The classic alt-rock blurprinters played all the hits, making the trek through the frozen precipitation worth it.
