Pixies, one of the most influential alternative rock bands of all time, are taking their signature aural mix of psychedelia, dissonance, hard-hitting guitars and lyrical melodies, which so fatefully influenced fateful bands such as Nirvana, Radiohead, Blur and numerous others, on an extensive global tour, which will also bring them to Slovenia. The cult band, a favourite of both the older and the youngest generations, will return to Križanke in Ljubljana this summer, the same venue the group had already packed full in both 2004 and as far back as 1989.
This time around, Pixies – featuring Joey Santiago (guitar), Black Francis (guitar & vocals), David Lovering (drums) and Paz Lenchantin (bass) – are again promising an energetic, unforgettable concert. Fans can expect a setlist comprised of the classics and catalogue rarities, as well as newer songs from Indie Cindy and the band’s latest release, Head Carrier. The precise selection remains a mystery even to the band members themselves – the skilled musicians come prepared with nearly 90 songs rehearsed and up their sleeve, with the decision which to play always left until the final moments right before each show. Those who already caught the band as one of the highlights of 2014’s INmusic Festival in Zagreb can therefore expect yet another memorable performance.
