Veteran alt-rockers the Pixies will set up shop in Brooklyn, New York for a three-night run at Brooklyn Steel this November. The residency will run from Nov. 18-20 and will celebrate the band’s previously announced release of Come On Pilgrim… It’s Surfer Rosa when the triple LP arrives on Sept. 28 via 4AD.
The concerts were announced earlier this week, with tickets to all three shows now available for purchase by clicking here. The New York run will also follow just a few weeks after the band plays five nights at the Roundhouse in London starting on Oct. 30 and continuing until Nov. 3.
Come On Pilgrim … It’s Surfer Rosa is a celebratory reissue of 1987’s Come On Pilgrim and 1988’s Surfer Rosa albums both turning 30 and 31-years-old this year. The reissue will also come with Live From The Fallout Shelter, a recording from the band’s radio concert which aired on Lowell, Massachusetts’ WJUL-FM radio back in 1986, shortly after they formed in Boston area. Fans should assume to hear songs from all three albums mixed in throughout the run, which will surely be in high demand considering Brooklyn’s love for retro rock these days.
This won’t be the first time that a popular rock band has held a residency at one of the city’s more notable new venues. LCD Soundsystem played 22 shows at the warehouse-turned-concert venue in 2017. French rockers Phoenix held their own three-night residency at the venue this past July.
The concerts will close out what’s been a busy year for the band, who spent most of their summer on tour alongside fellow alt-rock outfit Weezer. The lengthy tour came to an end back on Aug. 12. Fans can check out AXS' review of one of their shows on the tour by clicking here.
