Black Francis goes rock opera

It looks like any hopes of a new Pixies album gets dimmer by the day. However, this does mean a great deal of output from Pixies-frontman Black Francis, who has been touring solo, touring with his wife, and producing albums, is now taking on another ambitious project. Bluefinger (which you may remember as the name of Francis's 2007 album) will be a new rock opera which "...focuses entirely on the life and death of Herman Brood, a Dutch artist, rocker and junkie who leapt to his death from the roof of the Amsterdam Hilton in 2001 at the age of 54." Black Francis will premiere his rock opera on November 12 at The Catastrophic Theatre in Houston, TX. We're hoping it expands outward to other cities....
