The Pixies’ current U.S. tour took the band through Washington, D.C., recently, which afforded the group a chance to stop by NPR’s offices to perform a stripped-down “Tiny Desk Concert” — footage of which has just been posted by the public-radio giant. The band — featuring new bassist/violinist Paz Lenchantin — performs “Greens and Blues” off just-released EP-2, a still-unreleased song called “Silver Snail” and the Doolittle classic “Monkey Gone to Heaven.”
Watch below — and check out the band’s full tour dates.
Plus, you can download the full audio from NPR.
