Pixies' Black Francis is coming to Old Rock House



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.
