Peter seems to mostly play guitar now, letting his son handle bass duties in bands that he fronts. The clips I've seen/heard are unimpressive regarding Peter's current energy levels, but his son is definitely a quite competent and versatile bassist.

 

The "female bassist" requirement can be hard to meet due to supply vs. demand, and seems to have been relaxed by several bands (I forget who The Pixies hired after the falling out with Kim Deal).
