Pixies announce pre-tour warm up show at the Calvin

More Pixies-related news on the heels of last week's EP-2 release: a "surprise" pre-tour warm up gig at the Calvin Theater in Northampton, MA on January 13. The North American leg of the Pixies’ 2013-2014 global tour was announced on October 7, 2013.

Formed in 1986 in Boston, the influential alt/rock band comprised of Black Francis, Joey Santiago, Kim Deal and David Lovering disbanded acrimoniously in 1993 and later, reunited in 2004.

In June 2013, bassist Kim Deal announced she was leaving the band, and two weeks later, the group released their first single since reuniting, the free download, "Bagboy." Deal was replaced by Kim Shattuck (The Muffs) in July 2013 only to be axed some months later after the release of EP-1.

Argentinian-American bassist, Paz Lenchantin (A Perfect Cirlce, Zwan) will join the band on their North American tour. Mark Mulcahy will open up for the band at the Calvin Theater.

Tickets are on sale now at Northampton Box Office, 76 Main Street, 413 586-8686 and online at IHEG.com.
