The Pixies at Comerica Theatre, 2/24/14

In the darkened setting of Comerica Theater, it’s easy to close ones eyes and imagine the floaty female harmonies you’re hearing are those of The Pixies original bassist, Kim Deal. It wasn’t, of course, as such harmonies belonged to Paz Lenchantin, a more than exceptional substitute for the fiery Deal.

In the early days of the influential rock band, Deal was crucial in driving the tension with her heavy basslines and countering vocals, which nicely balanced Joey Santiago’s stinging guitar leads and Charles Thompson’s (Black Francis/Frank Black) scream-filled outbursts.
