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 Pitchfork (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.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
