Gone to Heaven

Though it got off to a rocky start, last week's Pixies concert in Davis lived up to the hype

For the encore, the Pixies played "Velouria" and "U-Mass," then closed out the night with "Gigantic," an especially telling choice. "Gigantic" is arguably the Pixies' biggest hit, the one that made the group famous. But it's also one of the only songs written by Deal rather than Black, and the decision to end with it is as good an indication as any that the band members have put the past behind them, fax machine and all. Perhaps the Pixies can make it through the next year of nonstop touring without killing each other. Perhaps the group can even get back into the studio for a new album. After witnessing one knockout performance, I'm starting to think that anything is possible.
