On Sept. 16, 2013 the Pixies stopped by “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” to perform their new track “Bagboy.” Black Francis commanded the stage as he melodically spoke each verse of the song until he erupted in yelps of “Bagboy” for the chorus. They also played “Indie Cindy” as a “Late Night” web exclusive. The track appears on “EP 1,” the band's first new music to be released in over twenty years.
The performance marks the first time the legendary alternative rockers have performed on television since founding member and bassist Kim Deal left the band earlier this year. Another Kim, Kim Shattuck, has been playing bass and providing backup vocals for the Pixies on their fall tour. They will be finishing out the week with a series of shows in New York before heading over to London to perform at the iTunes Festival, which will be streamed across the world via iTunes.
