Unless you are in Sonic Youth...you probably love the Pixies. At the very least, you loved the song Where Is My Mind? after hearing it in the movie Fight Club. This Thursday author Ben Sisario will be reading from his new book called "Doolittle," as part of the acclaimed 33 1/3 series. The book takes a look at the 1989 release of the Pixies sonic masterpiece of the same name, gaining insight from the band themselves.
The reading and signing will start off the night, but it doesn't end there. What happens when you get Todd P to book a show in conjunction with such a reading? You get every band east and west of the Williamsburg Bridge playing Pixies songs, that's what. Talibam, The Defenders, M Shanghai String Band...and many, many more perform their favorite Pixies tunes. We wonder how many bands will play Debaser, the first song off Doolittle. For more info and a list of bands check out Todd P's site.
