Re-Blog and spread the word.I Rock Photos is fan focused so if you have a recommendation on the next new great band or if you want your favorite band featured on I Rock Photos drop I Rock Photos a message in the "Ask Me Stuff!" box or e-mail gprieto1@verizon.net Ask me Stuff!

So what is the big deal some may say? Kim Deal left the Pixies and since then Black Francis and the boys have had two bass players as touring bassist.

The wonderful Kim Shattuck from the Muffs filled in for a while. Currently, Paz Lenchantin is the band’s touring bassist for their North and South American tours and the summer European dates. As someone who has seen all three bass players perform with their other projects and with the Pixies I love them all. The last time I saw Kim Deal with the Pixies was during the Lost Cities Tour and the show closed with Kim’s angelic voice singing their hit “Gigantic.” It is doubtful that we will ever hear that song live without Kim Deal but the Pixies are more than one song and she will be missed.

Currently the Pixies have not decided if and when they will permanently replace Kim Deal. I still have hope since she is still listed as a member of the band. Make sure you catch the Pixies at the Mojave Tent at Coachella and hop the adobe wall and get to the Pixies sold out show this Thursday at Pappy and Harriet’s.

Paz Lenchantin is the new touring bassist for the Pixies. I saw her last month playing with her other band the Entrance band. I was blown away with her voice and the way she played the bass. Since I am shooting the Pixies next week I wanted to see how their stage would be set up so I could understand how to shoot this newest member and the location of Paz Lenchantin on the stage.
I was so impressed seeing Paz on the Coachella live feed and her voice was perfect on “Greens and Blues” my favorite new Pixie song:
"I’m wasting your time, just talking to you
Maybe best you go on home.
I’ll leave you alone, fade from your mind,
Slip into the greens and blues.”
The Pixies are a must see at Coachella and if you are well heeled I am sure you can pay top dollar to buy someone’s ticket waiting in line at Pappy and Harriet’s next Thursday which is sold out prior to week two of Coachella.

Goat made their West Coast debut at Pappy and Harriet’s on Thursday prior to playing at Coachella over the next two weeks.

I am very confident that this is the first time the word Afrobeat Swedish band and Pappy’s has been used in the same paragraph. Recently signed to Sub Pop and hailing from Korpilombolo, Sweden according to their own press releases Korpilombolo had a history of voodoo worship which was quashed by Christians destroying the village, Goat spawned from this mayhem.

The ghost of Pappy was seen grooving to the psyched beats as the magical Goat played into the morning. Goat ripped through their set which included “Goatman,” “Disco Fever,” “Let it Bleed,” and “Goathead.”

Goat will perform at the outdoor Theatre at Coachella. Here are some additional tour dates:

Brody Dalle shared her new track ‘Don’t Mess With Me’ to the Pappy’s crowd the titled track to her new solo album ‘Diploid Love’ which drops on April 28th. Dalle was in good spirits cranking through her punk fused set as her hubby Josh Homme looked on. She dedicated her last song to Alejandra.

She also wished happy birthday to a thirteen year old boy who came down from Santa Barbara to see her show.

Afghan Whigs played Pappy and Harriet’s last night as part of a two week Coachella celebration that includes Coachella 2014 acts at this desert music venue.

Hardcore fans came from Chicago, Canada, and Las Vegas to see this veteran band under the starts exchanging stories about the world wide and state wide trips made in order to follow the band.

In support of their new record “Do to the Beast” which will be out on Sub Pop on April 15, 2014 which was recorded at Queens of the Stone Age, Josh Homme’s Pink Duck studio. Josh was in the audience watching the show and supporting his wife who opened for the Whigs.

Frontman Greg Dulli was all business during his 18 plus song show. Confidently tearing through the set  which included “Fountain and Fairfax,” “I’m Her Slave,” “66,” and Gentleman.”

Pixies will be playing the Mojave Tent at Coachella

The Pixies hit the stage at 8:50 PM on Saturday.

"Tame!!!, Tame!!!,Tame!!!. " I think about those incredible yells from Black Francis of the Pixies as I try to tame any speculation on why the Pixies have just announced a show at Pappy and Harriet’s during the in between days of Coachella. 

The obvious answer is that Pappy’s has amazing shows and for the last couple of years they have been hosting Coachella acts just prior to week one and before week two. 

Wrapping up the South American tour today in Lima Peru, the Pixies have a show in Big Sur, California on April 15. 

It also happens to be the ten year anniversary of the Pixies reuniting and playing Coachella. 

So can I ask the obvious question are the Pixies showing up at Coachella? 

Has Goldenvoice doubled the ante on reunions with Outkast and the Pixies?

Beck will be in Coachella next week. Songs from Beck’s new album Morning Phase will be a perfect contrast to the EDM pumping in the tents this coming weekend. A depature from his classics Odelay and Guero. The new record Morning Phase via Capital Records is mellow in everyway ideal tunes if you are relaxing in a home in the Bu or your villa in La Quinta while avoiding the Molly that will be flowing at the Polo grounds.

One of my favorite singers is Lindi Ortega who I saw last year at the 2013 Hootenanny. Lindi is currently on tour going to Austrialia and then Europe. 
Lindi will be at my favorite place in the world Pappy and Harriet’s on May 30, 2014. Check out her new record Tin Star. The Pappy’s show is free. 
Tim Armstrong of Rancid and the Transplants had Lindi Ortega collaborate on a classic punk song by the Ramones.  Here is the quote from Tim’s Youtube post:
"Hootenany came through town, and it was my pleasure to not only get to see live, but invite singer, guitarist Lindi Ortega to record with us in the studio the very next day. Here’s the newest member of the Tim Timebomb And Friends ever-growing family, singing with me, backed up by the amazing Country Gentlemen on the Ramone’s "I Wanna Be Sedated".
