The Pixies are set to debut their second new bassist in a year — Paz Lenchantin, who played in A Perfect Circle and Billy Corgan’s brief post-Smashing Pumpkins outfit Zwan — at a just-announced warm-up gig next week in Northampton, Mass., that will feature an opening set from former Miracle Legion frontman Mark Mulcahy.

The Pixies will perform Monday at the Calvin Theatre in Northampton ahead of their previously announced North American tour opener on Jan. 15 in Toronto (see full dates below).

Tickets are now on sale for the warm-up show.

The band last week released their second EP of brand-new material since September and debuted the music video for “Blue Eyed Hexe.” Mulcahy, who shares the Pixies’ New England roots, last year released a brand-new solo album called Dear Mark J Mulcahy, I Love You.
