It’s trendy these days for iconic rockers to take one of their classic albums and perform it in its entirety in concert. Motley Crue just did it with “Dr. Feelgood” last night at Auburn’s White River Amphitheatre. Roger Waters gave Pink Floy’ds “Dark Side of the Moon” a similar treatment a while back. And now one of alt-rock’s pioneering acts is getting into the act, too.

The Pixies are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their “Doolittle” album by taking it out on the road, with back-to-back stops scheduled for Nov. 11 and 12 at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre. According to today’s announcement, the band will play all the tracks from “Doolittle” – college radio classics like “Wave of Mutilation” and “Monkey Goes to Heaven” – and related b-sides.

Tickets are set at $58 and they go on sale at 10 a.m. on Saturday (Aug. 1).

In April, Pixies singer-guitarist Black Francis brought his new project, Grand Duchy, to Jazzbones. Click here to revisit our interview with Francis and his wife, Violet Clark. Grand Duchy will headline Seattle’s Triple Door on Sunday (Aug. 2).
