Pavement Co-Founders Reunite In LA
Founding Pavement singer/guitarists Stephen Malkmus and Scott “Spiral Stairs” Kannberg shared the stage in Los Angeles’ El Rey Theatre last night. Near the end of Malkmus’ show with his current band The Jicks, Kannberg emerged for a take on one of Pavement’s best known songs, “Stereo.” While Malkmus has never completely stopped playing songs from his Pavement days, he has performed his old band’s numbers with increased regularity on his current tour. Malkmus and Kannberg took part in Pavement’s reunion tour in 2010.
Malkmus and The Jicks will perform at San Diego, CA’s The Casbah this evening. They are touring in support of their latest album, Wig Out at Jagbags.
