It’s Thursday night and the third night of the Pixies’ five day residency at London’s legendary Roundhouse, celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of the classics ‘Come On Pilgrim’ and ‘Surfer Rosa’. Reports suggest that last night’s show was amazing, so tonight, already knowing that both releases will be played in full and the band appear to be on form (actually talking to each other for long enough to stage such an event is a start), everyone is expecting good things. For any band to take up such a residency is a brave move – even a band with a huge back catalogue – but for Pixies, it’s a move that seems incredibly bold, considering both discs only total approximately fifty two minutes’ worth of music.
Hot on the heels of ‘Bagboy’, their first new song in nine years, legendary alt-rockers Pixies have announced the first set of dates on their world tour.
Confirmed are a bunch of European dates – including a leg in the UK (stopping off at the horrible Hammersmith Apollo) – all of which can be seen below.
