When Black Francis sings Honey I was born in a double orgasm in When They Come to Murder Me, well, it’s just brilliant . . .
I love it when artists branch out and use other names – I am not being sarcastic here. It’s an attempt at creating different personae and these all work. Black Francis is his own beast, as is Frank Black, and as is Frank Black’s other project, Grand Duchy, is its (or their) own beast.
Yes Black Francis (aka Frank Black of Pixies) is on a solo tour, which means you don’t have to wait until November, when Pixies come here for 2 dates, to see him in any incarnation.
Black Francis plays on Sunday, August 2nd at the Triple Door. Be there well before 8:30 pm.
