To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Doolittle, the Pixies are giving away live tracks to fans who sign up for their newsletter. The live tracks are recordings from their current tour and shows from the band’s touring history. This is a fine treat for any Pixie fan: new, young or old(er). You can download the four tracks on the Pixie site.
While you’re cruising around their site, you’ll also want to check out a very cool fan-centric element about the Pixies tour archive called the gigography. The interactive tour history catalog allows fans to tag and upload various forms of social and new media—Tweets, YouTube videos, photos—from the shows fans have attended on the current tour and shows throughout the Pixies entire touring history.
