The Pixies today announced they’ll perform their 1987 debut EP Come on Pilgrim and its follow-up, the 1988 full-length Surfer Rosa, in their entireties at three concerts in Brooklyn this November, following previously announced runs of shows in London and Mexico City.
The concerts — Nov. 18, 19 and 20 at Brooklyn Steel — come as the band and 4AD Records commemorate the 30th anniversary of Surfer Rosa with a dual reissue of that album and its 1987 predecessor, the eight-song mini-album Come On Pilgrim, that will include a bonus live set from 1986.
Titled Come On Pilgrim… It’s Surfer Rosa, the reissue will come in 3CD and 3LP packages, plus a limited-edition deluxe 3LP box set with clear vinyl and a clothbound hardbook with lyric booklet and art book. The CD and standard vinyl reissues are out Sept. 28, with the deluxe vinyl set due “later in 2018.”
Tickets for the Brooklyn Steel concerts go on sale noon local time on Thursday; visit the venue’s website for more information. The shows will find the band performing “both releases live, start-to finish, as well as additional songs from that time period that are not on the anniversary release.”
