Pixies Doolittle Tribute by San Francisco Bay Area Musicians (4/5)
Diverse musicians from the Bay Area gather under director Aaron Novik to pay tribute to the classic album of the legendary 90’s alternative rock band. The remake features musicians from various genres ranging from Afrobeat to heavy metal, and each band blends its own style into the Pixie’s original track. Naturally, the result is a unique blend of music quite different from the Pixies’ original.
