Pixies perform “Bel Esprit” on Conan — watch

In support of the iconic alternative rock band's latest LP, Head Carrier

Despite releasing their most recent album, Head Carrier, all the way back in September, Pixies had yet to appear on a late night program in support of the effort. (Perhaps that had something to do with guitarist Joey Santiago’s recent stint in rehab?) That changed last night when Conan scored a coup by welcoming Black Francis and the band on for a performance of “Bel Espirt”. You can check out the replay below, or if you’re having trouble with the video embed, you can watch it here.
