Pixies Play Fallon, Fans Pick Second Song on Twitter


Aside from his penchant for starring in bad Queen Latifah movies, Jimmy Fallon’s usually got the public’s interest in mind. A man of the people, if you will. With his affable persona and regular-dude smile, he emits a charming you-went-to-high-school-with-me vibe. Further proving this, when indie-rock icons the Pixies stop by his show on Nov. 24, viewers have the chance to vote on which song the band will play in addition to the classic “Debaser.”

The Pixies are currently wrapping up their Doolittle Tour, a trek that’s wrapped around the world and featured the band playing one of indie rock’s most legendary albums in full. The Fallon performance will come off the heels of four sold-out shows at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom.

The music on Fallon’s show has been on point thus far—after all, his house band is The Roots—and most bands record a second, off-air song that streams on the show’s website. As of today at noon, you can tweet your Doolittle song choice to Fallon (@jimmyfallon) directly. While it seems likely that a Pixies “hit” will get top vote (“Wave of Mutilation,” “La La Love You”), hearing Kim Deal’s ethereal harmony in the chorus of “I Bleed” would give this humble Pixies fan the chills.

Twittervote until 6 p.m. EST on Monday. Ready, go!
