Pixies, Devo head dad rock shows in November

Reunion shows have that dad rock rep for sure, especially when the point is to play classic albums in their entirety.

Two groundbreaking bands — Pixies and Devo — play here in November. And, yeah, it’s dad rock but in a good way. I saw two of the Pixies shows during the greatest-hits reunion in 2004 and they were great.

Devo is performing its early albums “Are We Not Men?” and “Freedom of Choice” in their entirety. The albums are being re-released in November. And the tour is a warm-up for the first new release in ages, scheduled for sometime next year.

Pixies are playing their own true classic, “Doolittle,” in its entirety. Pixies play the Aragon Nov. 20-21. Devo plays Nov. 12-13 at the Vic.
