Last concert was Nov.
20, 1999 in London…
Malkmus summarily pulled the plug, bad vibes ensued.

Indie rock news o’ the day has got to be about the presumed
Pavement reunion, which Brookly Vegan broke last night in a posting that read
“According to reliable
sources, it’s finally happening in 2010! There will be multiple, possibly four,
nights of shows at NYC’s Central Park
Summerstage in September of that year. That could be part of a tour.
That could be the end of a tour, the middle of a tour, or even the beginning of
a tour, but it seems reasonable to speculate that they might make their
official comeback at Coachella
Pitchfork subsequently checked into it with their own
contacts and earlier today posted thusly:
“According to a source
who is real and official and not a figment of our imagination, Pavement will
perform a benefit show at Central Park
SummerStage on September 21, 2010. Mark your motherfucking calendars.”
Indeed we will. As we all know, time sometimes heals all
wounds (as does the promise of a payday) when it comes to rock band, but only
sometimes; usually, those old wounds get reopened, and you can count on one
hand the reunions that actually stick.
More news (or rumors) as it develops.
