Influential alt/rock band Pixies will make their first appearance in Dallas in over three years when they play at the Bomb Factory on Saturday, April 29, as part of a five-week North American tour.

The tour will kick off in Pomona, California, on April 21, and is scheduled to play 21 dates in 19 different cities, including stops in Houston on April 30 and Austin on May 1. Pixies will be joined by opening act Public Access TV for all three Texas dates.

Pixies' signature aural mix of psychedelia, dissonance, surf-rock, and loud-quiet-loud will be on display during the tour. 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 album, Head Carrier, which was released in September 2016.

As is the norm, there will be no firm setlist for the shows — their sets, while pulled from nearly 90 songs that 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.

According to a tweet from the Bomb Factory, a limited amount of pre-sale tickets for the Dallas date can be had by using the password "HEAD" on The general on-sale date will be Friday, January 27, at 10 am local time.
