Black Francis at the Old Rock House, 7/19/2011

by Berrek Thompson

Black Francis (a.k.a Frank Black), most commonly known as the leader of the venerable legends Pixies, found his way to the Old Rock House this past Tuesday night. He performed stripped-down versions of his solo work, as well as a few Pixies tunes sprinkled in for good measure. It made for a very satisfying evening of dynamic songs. He was accompanied by Eric Drew Feldman, who played keyboards on the Pixies’ Trompe le Monde (as well as worked on several of Francis’ solo records). Below we have a video of Black performing “Where is My Mind?”, photos, and a setlist. Enjoy!
