They look like what you would expect.

20 something songs, I assume because they are splitting the bill with the Weezer band.

Plenty from the first 3 albums, not much from 4 or 5, and then a couple from 6, several from 7, and a b side.

I was gonna call this thread "Uncle Frank's Band" because they do make me think of the dead.

Glad they're doing what they do. Hope they're having fun and everyone is enjoying these shows.

I will just keep hope alive for some kind of "Black Frank-enstein" Tour, where he performs an amalgamated mutation of all his music with whatever band of misfits he can put together.

We were spoiled by Frank Black's extensive output post-Pixies, I guess. Not once did I see quantity sacrifice quality, however. I think he simply can't miss. How far in advance of Head Carrier did we hear anything off if it played live? It just seems like an awfully long period of time has passed since we've heard anything new (with the exception of the song from his one and only recent solo set). Let's hope Wilson might be able to provide us with an update soon. 2019 seems like a long time to wait for new music (Pixies or anything else FB-related).

Put it to you this way

When the Pixies come to town I may or may not go.

If I hear that FBF is playing a solo show anywhere in the NYC / Tri-State area, I will drive several hours to attend.

I donít mean that to sound snide. Just wanting the right tickets to go to the right people.

Then again, how many Waves does he have left in him? Maybe I should go to every single show I can.

That's a good point. Would be a cool experience. I guess the main thing a new song being played or at least worked on live would be a signifier that a new collection of music is imminent. Right now we are kinda stuck in a Pixies play the hits cycle again. If I'm honest, I'm kinda tired of the stuff they normally play and most of the new songs aren't strong enough to get me excited about heading out to see them. It's a bit tough for me to understand the band and their perspective right now. I'm eager to hear the evolution from HC . Hopefully Wilson comes through with another update soon.

No new music thus far is very disappointing. If not for Wilson's recent update I'd be pretty depressed right now. Can't lie, the prospect of another Doolittle/Surfer Rosa heavy set has me feeling quite ambivalent for the upcoming show I'll be attending here in CA.

I feel like U-Mass is a favorite among the popular Pixies crowd. Sometimes Head On gets a nice response.

Ana, Subbacultcha, Velouria pretty much just get tolerated

Yeah. No surprise except Gigantic which was a nice addition to the setlist.

I still think the omission of Bossa and Trompe is a terrible sin. But I can't blame them. Crowds would probably be bored to death by those songs. They pay their tickets to hear Hey and Where is my mind. The band understood that a long time ago.

I was hoping they might sprinkle in a new song or two. Weezer's setlist is always heavy on the Blue album and Pinkerton. Maybe this was some sort of agreement made in advance that the two bands would stick to their repertoire on a consistent basis.
