Charles Thompson hasn't recorded an album with the Pixies since 1991's Trompe le Monde, despite years of rumors. But Thompson, who led the trailblazing indie quartet under the pseudonym Black Francis (originally suggested by his father), recorded roughly one album per year since the Pixies' 1993 break up as Frank Black.

This summer he put a cap on Frank Black with the 32-track 93-03 compilation. And now, Black Francis is back. Touring behind the edgy, electrified Bluefinger, Black Francis wants to see you and he wants to see you TONIGHT. We'll leave the rest to Sam:

The first 50 people who come to Safari Sam's for Mr. Black Francis will get in for free*. Just say Sam invited you or print this out. *(Must be over 21 and arrive by 9:30pm).
