Pixies to Play Isle of Wight in June

     

    So apparently Kim Deal has backed off her claims (which coincided with the latest Breeders release) that she’d never rejoin Pixies again–NME is reporting (and confirmed via Pixies’ MySpace) that the band has been booked as a headliner for the Isle of Wight Festival on June 14. It’s the band’s only scheduled show at this point, and the band will be essentially opening for Neil Young, who closes out that night’s festivities. It’s the band’s first U.K. festival dates since their headlining slots at Reading and Leeds. [NME]
