US indie band The Pixies have been listed among the acts that will play a series of outdoor concerts at Trinity College Dublin this summer. A long-time favourite with students, fans hoping to hear the classics should be in luck as promoter MCD has promised the alternative Boston group will play "an extensive catalogue of indie anthems" when they play the historic surroundings on Sunday July the 9th.
The series of concerts, which will take place in College Park between July 6th and 11th will feature acts from the worlds of contemporary jazz, indie, alternative folk and rock.
