Black Francis' 'The Good Inn'

On Friday, Pixies frontman Black Francis will help launch the new novel he’s co-authored — “The Good Inn,”  which is billed as “blurring the lines between fact and fiction, film and prose, reality and surreality” — at an event at The Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn.

And we’ve got three tickets to the event to award to lucky Slicing Up Eyeballs readers.

Published last week, the 256-page hardback, put out by HarperCollins’ It Books, is co-authored by Josh Frank, who compiled “Fool the World: The Oral History of a Band Called Pixies,”  and features illustrations by Steven Appelby.

TO ENTER: In the comments section below, please name your favorite Black Francis lyric and give a few words as to why you love it. If you’re using the Slicing Up Eyeballs app, please email your entry to info@slicingupeyeballs.com with the subject line “I’ve kissed mermaids, rode the El Nino.”

RULES: We’ll take entries until 5 p.m. EDT Wednesday, April 23. After that point, we’ll select three winners at random and contact them via their provided e-mail addresses. One entry per person.
