As promised, the Pixies appeared on “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” last night to perform the closest thing the band ever had to a pop hit, Doolittle’s “Here Comes Your Man.” It’s a fairly subdued performance — it might have been more fun to rile up the audience with a ferocious tear through “Tame” — but nice to see the band on network TV nonetheless. Plus, get a load of the sheer size of the Minotaur box set that Conan holds up in the intro.
Oh, and if you haven’t downloaded the band’s free Doolittle 20th Anniversary Live Sampler yet — four tracks recorded last month in Paris — you can grab it here.
