Homecoming for Pavement Reunion Tour
Pavement, a cornerstone of Matador in the 90s—and a band one usually either loves, hates, or hasn't heard of—brings their much-awaited reunion tour to their hometown of Stockton this Thursday and to the Greek Theater in Berkeley on Friday. Scott Kannenberg (aka Spiral Stairs) and Stephen Malkmus formed the band in their later-to-be estranged drummer Gary Young's studio in Stockton in 1989. Rumor has it that Young will make at least an appearance at the Stockton show at the Bob Hope Theater and possibly pop up in Berkeley as well. Neither the Stockton show nor the Berkely show have sold out but plenty of people are trying to get rid of Greek Theater tickets on Craigslist if you're looking for a discount.
