Ten years after playing their first reunion concert at Coachellathe Pixies are headed back to the California desert festival as a surprise last-minute addition to this year's lineup.

The incalculably influential alt-rockers—who recently parted ways with founding member Kim Deal and her replacement Kim Shattuck—will take the stage both weekends with A Perfect Circle's Paz Lenchantin on bass.

The Strokes' frontman Julian Casablancas is another down-to-the-wire addition to the fest. Both artists' Coachella gigs were revealed only through the 2014 set times which just hit the Internet last night.

Pixies are slated to rock the Mojave tent on Saturday night, with Casablancas taking the same stage late Saturday afternoon. Given both weekends are sold-out save for a few VIP packages on the second weekend, this is a nice gift for fest-goers.
