An Evening with Black Francis

Francis Black - Band

So who is Black Francis? Well, replace Francis with Frank, switch the order of the words and think The Pixies. If you still don’t know, that’s O.K. just think of this as an educational experience. Black Francis played the Doug Fir Lounge on Monday and Tuesday of this past week. If you have been to the Doug Fir, you know how good of place it is to see a band; keep it like a secret. All we can say is the show was great and it made us want to buy the new album titled Bluefinger. Check out some pics of the show after the turn….

  • damn it, sucks that I missed that show. Thanks for the photos.
    Pixies rules.

  • Nice shots Rich. I was just watching a Pixies concert on the tube last night. On a slightly related note (bald, hefty, intense former frontmen of hard, quirky, sometimes disturbing, but melodic seminal 80’s, blah, blah, blah), Bob Mould is coming up on the 14th. He puts on a real good show as well, and it’s at the Doug Fir. Bonus.

  • who was the band that opened for that show?
