Pixies’ world tour doesn’t officially kick off until Monday night, but last night Frank Black and Co. played a surprise, last-minute show at the Echo in Los Angeles. It marked their first performances since November 2011.

Rounded out on guitar by Joey Santiago, drummer David Lovering, and bassist Kim Shattuck, who replaced founding member Kim Deal, the band performed a career-spanning set, including a pair of brand-new, as-yet-released songs called “Blue Eyed Hexe” and “Greens and Blues”.

Below, watch fan footage of the new material, along with “What Goes Boom” from their just-released EP-1, “Wave of Mutilation” from Doolittle, and “Nimrod’s Son” from Come on Pilgrim.
