Pavement to play 2020 reunion shows

/ 06:03 PM June 03, 2019

The influential 1990s-era indie rock group Pavement will reunite for two European performances in 2020 after disbanding two decades ago.

“Pavement: only two worldwide shows in 2020,” announced the Primavera Sound festival on Saturday, saying the American band would play the Barcelona fest and its sister event in Porto.

The group performed a reunion tour in 2010, having released its last studio album, “Terror Twilight”, in 1999.

The band’s ringleader and indie rock’s patron saint Stephen Malkmus recently hinted that a reunion was “realistic” telling a Rolling Stone podcast that “anything’s possible.”

“If there’s interest, then that’s always a factor,” Malkmus said. “If people are really psyched about it, I’d be psyched about it too.”

After banding together in California in 1989, Pavement achieved both critical success and an ardent cult following for its lo-fi sound and laconic vocals.

“Confirmed: Pusha T watched the Pavement Prima Vera 2020 announcement on site,” tweeted Malkmus, referring to the rapper who played this year’s edition of the Barcelona fest, “I’m glad it’s happening.” RGA/JB
