    The newly Kim Deal-less Pixies have been confirmed for the iTunes Festival, to be held in London at The Roundhouse on Wednesday, September 25. The iTunes festival is free to the public, and can be streamed via the official app available on the iTunes Store and with Apple TV. The festival, running from September 1-30, will also feature performances by Kings of Leon, Justin Timberlake, Sigur Rós, Paramore, Queens of the Stone Age, Vampire Weekend, and more.

    The Pixies are a quality alt rock addition to the lineup, for sure.

    "We're all big Mac fans, so we're particularly excited to be performing at the iTunes Festival in London," said the Pixies' Joey Santiago.

    The band recently parted ways with longtime member Kim Deal. But they are not slowing down. Deal has been replaced by another Kim (Shattuck of The Muffs and long ago The Pandoras).

    Any of our London readers --or U.S. readers who will travel to London in September-- plan to take in any of these gigs?
