The influentual alt-rock band Pixies is playing the INB Performing Arts Center October 3, it was recently announced. The tour coincides with the band’s fifth studio album Indie Cindy, which was released last month.
Unfortunately, bassist Kim Deal still will not be touring with the band. Since leaving officially last year, Deal has been touring heavily with her band the Breeders — which performed at Bumbershoot last Labor Day weekend. But Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering are carrying the torch along with touring bassist, Paz Lenchantin. Formed in the mid-'80s, the Boston band's psychedelic/punk/surf rock sound heavily influenced bands that would become a whole lot more famous in the next decade (Pearl Jam, Nirvana). After breaking up in 1993, the group reformed in 2004 and haven't stopped since.
British rock duo Royal Blood will open the show. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 9 and start at $40.
