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.

Switching the lines like that would be hilarious. Alternatively, hologram Kim!

Q: Where do Pixies keep their instruments when they're not playing?
A: Debasement.
Bedbug Posted - 10/01/2018 : 07:15:47
I hope they do it.

Wonít everyone be expecting it?

Could be fun.

They should have Joey do Kimís likes, and Dave do Blackís.

Boom and Roc should be interesting vocals wise

Golly & Amazed were never played at all since 2.0 as far as I know.

I think Charles only sang Golly once at a Tenacious D gig. They did the "you fucking die" lines.

I'm hoping they don't.... it'd be weird for Paz to say Kim's lines.....

I'd be ok for the original audio of the banter to play while the band stands on stage, and then launching into the next song when it ends. That'd be a classier way to represent those moments
Jeepster Posted - 09/27/2018 : 16:48:58
That makes sense. Looks like between Come On Pilgrim and Surfer Rosa, there were only 4 songs that never got played this tour- Levitate Me, Oh My Golly, I'm Amazed, and Brick is Red.

I have to wonder if they're going to attempt the studio banter at the fall shows. It's an iconic part of the album, but reciting it could come across as kinda gimmicky.

yarbles Posted - 09/26/2018 : 21:02:50
I'm pretty sure they played a lot of the old stuff this past tour to prepare for the Come On Pilgrim/Surfer Rosa shows this fall.
Jeepster Posted - 09/26/2018 : 14:17:39
I really liked these setlists! Heavy on the crowdpleasing early stuff, which is understandable for a coheadliner tour, but with a few stranger selections as well. Any love for Bossanova sits pretty well with me!

They played Gigantic 37 times in 38 shows... imagine seeing Pixies on the tour where they start playing Gigantic again and it's the ONE show where they skip it?
picpic Posted - 08/16/2018 : 20:59:49
54 Wave for 38 shows. I suppose they played the fast version and the slow versions a few times at the same venues.

Have you tried https://www.setlist.fm/stats/pixies-2bd6846a.html?year=2018 ? There are a variety of ways you can break it down. Of course it's only as good as the data entered, but can give you a decent idea of what's up.



I like cows, they go moo when they eat



Thank you hickster9 that's exactly what I was interested in.

Look at those bottom 4 just for starters. Man it would be cool to hear more of those.

And Wave 54 times is a lot.

Looks like the tour is over.

Wonder what's next...
Bedbug Posted - 08/09/2018 : 11:22:07
They closed with Rock Music on August 5th.

That's a little something interesting.

Haha sorry Oddball, that was my attempt at humor.

Definitely would love some solo FB though

Did you just say "Frank Black solo gig"?!

Where and when?!
picpic Posted - 07/30/2018 : 22:18:23
I remember I really enjoyed "Please don't go" on his latest solo mini gig. I almost forgot we had that new song a few weeks ago. Time to listen to it again.

Yeah, I also am not expecting anything new to be played live any time soon.

The Weezer tour setlists look like Frank is committed to doing a good job at what he's been hired to do. No shame in the that.

The COP / SR shows should probably be nothing but COP / SR songs and b-sides.

That would mean no new music in 2018, right?
Discoking Posted - 07/30/2018 : 01:19:30
aren't new pixies albums managed by "managers"? and don't they sometimes decide if new songs can be played live before the album has been released?
maybe there's a bit of that going on here?


it's educational
stuczuba Posted - 07/27/2018 : 00:34:12
I thought Pilgrim/Surfer shows were the placeholder before we got new material. As much as I'd like it, I can't see them airing new stuff as between now and the end of that 'next' tour.
oddball Posted - 07/26/2018 : 14:54:56
I'm holding out hope for the two shows in the first week of August where they are not playing with Weezer. If we don't get to hear anything new on this summer tour, so be it. As long as Charles and co. remain motivated to explore/create new music down the road.

As far as b-sides go, I vaguely remember someone on this forum mentioning having heard Rats Alive. Perhaps that would have been a b-side, if b-sides were envisioned.

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).

Great points Oddball

The lack of b-sides is driving a lot of us crazy too.

The setlists look good enough. Closed with Monkey the other night which is a bit unusual I suppose and probably was a lot of fun

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.
Bedbug Posted - 07/10/2018 : 06:06:49
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
picpic Posted - 07/09/2018 : 21:04:44
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.
