    Default Pavement to play shows in 2010

    hopefully they'll play some non-festival shows. anyways, this is from pitchfork:


    As you may have heard, noted indie rock band Pavement are reuniting next year. And if you don't believe us, maybe you'll believe Matador, who made things very clear in a blog post this morning: "Mark Ibold, Scott 'Spiral Stairs' Kannberg, Stephen Malkmus, Bob Nastanovich and Steve West [are] reuniting for dates around the world in 2010."

    Please stop hyperventilating, you're going to scare someone.
    But before you start dreaming of awesome new Pavement albums and taking your imaginary cool-sneaker-clad kids to Pavement gigs in 2020, the post also states that "this tour is not a prelude to additional jaunts and/or a permanent reunion." Well, considering the countless legacy-tarnishing reunion LPs out there, perhaps that's for the best.

    In an interview with Rolling Stone, Spiral Stairs explained how the reunion came about: "Steve [Malkmus] and I just had a conversation on the phone, and we'd never talked about it before at all. We've talked over the years, but the subject never came up. Then our agent asked us about these New York shows, so we went around to everybody in the band, and they said, 'Yeah, the time is right if everybody’s ready to do it, then we'll do it and see what happens.' There was no real impetus-- it just kind of happened naturally."

    As of right now, the only known tour date is the same one we told you about yesterday: September 21, 2010 at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park. (A pre-sale starts tomorrow with general tickets on sale September 25-- check here for more details.) But Spiral Stairs told Rolling Stone that a few big time gigs may be in order, too: "There's festivals and stuff that we're talking to, like Coachella," he said. Details forthcoming.

    Until then, sit back, relax, and know that you'll get the chance to experience your favorite band live at least one (more) time before it's all through.

    I just told my wife we're going to New York next year ... she said - why?
    I told her about the Pavement gig and she chuckled at me.

    yeah, i always thought they were great in concert. the terror twilight shows got a little bland, but so was that album compared to their earlier stuff.
