The University at Buffalo Center for the Arts presents Pixies with special guest Sunflower Bean at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 1.
Pixies includes Joey Santiago/guitar, Black Francis/guitar and vocals, David Lovering/drums and bassist Paz Lenchantin. Fans can expect a set list comprised of the classics and catalogue rarities, as well as newer songs from "Indie Cindy" and the band's 2016 release, "Head Carrier."
As is the norm, there will be no firm set list for this Pixies show. Their sets, while pulled from nearly 90 songs the band has rehearsed and is prepared to play, will change somewhat from night to night with every number determined just before it's performed.
Tickets are available at the Center for the Arts box office (noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday), and online at ticketfly.com. To charge tickets, call 1-877-987-6487. For more information, call 716-645-2787 or visit www.ubcfa.org or www.pixiesmusic.com.
The band's five-week North American leg two kicked off this week in New Haven, Connecticut. Leg three launches Nov. 30 with three shows in Portland, Oregon, and will see the band making stops along the West Coast.
Legs two and three will feature a brand-new stage set designed by the band's longtime production manager, Simon Foster, and lighting designer Myles Mangino. The design is simple and sleek and fashioned around special pods that are positioned behind the band, housing all of the lighting.
Pixies will also perform Sept. 29-30 at Massey Hall in Toronto.
