John Grant announces spring North American dates with The Pixies.

Partisan Records has announced that The Pixies have chosen John Grant as their opening act for their spring US tour. Starting in New Orleans on May 5th, the tour will hit the Southeast and East Coast, including two New York City shows (The Beacon Theater on May 27th and the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn on May 28th). Grant will play Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta, and is currently working on his third album due out later this year.
