Pixies' Black Francis is coming to Old Rock House

Categories: This Just In

We have just learned that Pixes frontman Frank Black (a.k.a. Black Francis) is playing an acoustic show at Old Rock House on July 19th. He's released thirteen solo albums since the first breakup of his old band, and a fourteenth is on the way later this year. Tickets are $20 in advance and $23 day of show. Let's all give a loud-quiet-loud cheer as we clear some calendar room.

He hasn't posted the tour yet on his web site, so we have no idea how many stops he'll be making or what sort of magnitude we're talking about. We do know he'll be solo and playing acoustic, which is a little off his beaten path. The Pixies just wrapped up a spring tour in Canada on May 5th, for what that's worth.

Yeah, the crowd at Blueberry Hill was confounding as hell. It seemed to be mostly comprised of frat boys, who had surely been turned on to the Pixies via Fight Club. Frank was marvelous in spite of this. Can't wait to see him again!

Frank Black played acoustic at the Duck Room some years ago, and people pretty much talked over his entire performance. You could tell Frank was getting pretty bummed/pissed off. Hope people are more polite this time!

If you go to Fleet Foxes over Frank Black, you should kill yourself.
