Pixies headline Thomas Wolfe Auditorium on Feb. 1

Pixies will headline the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium in Asheville on Saturday, February 1 as part of the band’s 2013-2014 global tour. On this date, the band will be playing brand new Pixies music as well as some of the most beloved songs in their catalogue as part of the most wide-ranging concert set list in the band’s career. The production will be presented on a beautiful and dramatic stage set. We’d love to connect with you about coverage for this show.

After more than twenty years, the iconic Pixies – Black Francis/guitars, vocals, Joey Santiago/guitars, vocals, David Lovering/drums/vocals – have finally given fans what they’ve been clamoring for – brand new Pixies music – in the form of “Bagboy,” a free download that was made available on June 28, the four-song collection, EP-1, released September 3, and, most recently, four more brand new songs, EP-2, released January 3. Plus, six new music videos. And the band is doing it all on its own – there is no record label involved. Access to new music, new music videos, tour dates, etc., are posted on the band’s website – nothing is announced in advance. Fan club members are notified via email, all transactions are done through the website, so prices are kept low, and hard-core fans get first crack at everything.

Pixies launched their 2013-2014 world tour on September 9 with eight, instantly sold-out U.S. headline shows, then played 29 sold-out concerts in London and across Europe. With Fidlar (Jan 15-29), Cults (Jan 31-Feb. 11), and Best Coast (Feb. 13-Mar. 1). $59.50 / $49.50 plus applicable fees.
