Black Francis @ Le Poisson Rouge

Black Francis played Le Poisson Rouge last night (7/24). Eric Drew Feldman accompanied him like he’s done in the past. Reid Paley, who Frank is releasing an album with, opened the show. Pictures are in this post.

Five days earlier, Frank’s tour brought him to St Louis where kdhx had this to say:

“Once he was tuned up and ready to go, Frank howled out a fantastic cover of Tom Waits’ “The Black Rider” and his own tune “Six-Sixty-Six” over Eric’s gorgeous organ accompaniment. The rest of the set found Frank playing whatever came to mind, picking out some fantastic guitar lines and delivering his lyrics in a wailing tenor while Eric switched between electric piano, organ and bass depending on the song. The set mostly consisted of songs from Frank’s solo albums, but did include a handful of Pixies tunes, covers of the aforementioned Tom Waits tune and the Gary Green penned “That Burnt Out Rock and Roll” along with the fan suggested “Song of the Shrimp” from his 2005 album Honeycomb.”

The full 7/19 setlist is below.

Frank’s got a couple more dates left before the Pixies go on a tour that hits Wellmont Theatre on October 27 (sold out), Asbury Park Convention Hall on October 28 (tickets) and The Paramount in Huntington on November 5th (tickets).
