The Olympia Theatre, Thursday 26th September

Pixies play Dublin's Olympia Theatre to coincide with the release of the band's new studio album: Beneath the Eyrie.

Pixies' shows are simultaneously electrifying and lo-fi with focus on the music and almost no between-song banter. The band will rehearse and be prepared to play some 90 songs from all points of its career as well as introducing songs from the new album. And, as there is no nightly set list, the songs that are performed at every show are determined mere seconds in advance. From a live onstage mic that feeds only to the band members, sound engineer and lighting director Black Francis calls out what the next song will be. Explained David Lovering on the nightly customisation of the sets, “The best is when you can sense what the next song should be based on the atmosphere in the room. That's really, ultimately what we're going for, to read the room and to be able to make the right choice.”
