Pavement on tour

Total music-snob awesomeness.

Like most undergrads here, I have a long wait until my 10-year high school reunion. But from what I’ve heard, or at least seen on TV, reunions aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. Unfortunately, the same can often be said about band reunions. Even when all the former members are still alive, chances are they’re shells of their former rock ‘n’ roll selves.

But that isn’t always the case. Just last week, a certain band reunited after a decade of inactivity to embark on an ambitious world tour. I am talking about hugely influential (if commercially unsuccessful) California-bred indie rockers of the ’90s : Pavement.
