The big news in indie rock this morning came from Pavement
, one of the last OG acts from the birth of the genre to give in and reunite already.
The announcement came through Pitchfor
k (who'd grabbed it from Brooklyn Vegan
), and panties have been bunching
all over the Web ever since.
The only show announced so far (and only semi-officially at that) is a year from now in Central Park. But surely more dates will pop up soon.
Pavement was by far one of my favorite '90s college rock acts--and their swan song of San Francisco shows at places like the Kilowatt and the Fillmore reign supreme in my live music memory.
More info on the Pavement shows as the news breaks.
