Black Francis will be doing a special set of solo acoustic shows beginning next week in Big Sir, California. Mr. Francis will be performing a very unique and memorable  selection of songs from his twenty year career, and will now be joined by ex-Pixies/Black Francis collaborator, Eric Drew Feldman. His latest album NonStopErotik (Cooking Vinyl) recently came out this year to widely acclaimed reviews.

Black Francis (born Charles Michael Kittridge Thompson IV on April 6, 1965) is an American singer, songwriter and guitarist. He is best known as the frontman of the  influential alternative rock band Pixies, with whom he performs under the stage name Black Francis. Following the band's breakup in 1993, he embarked on a solo career under the name Frank Black. After releasing two albums with 4AD, he left the label and formed a backing band, Frank Black and the Catholics. He reformed the  Pixies in 2004 and continues to release solo records and tour as a solo artist, having re-adopted his current stage name in 2007.
