In case you missed Pavement’s rare reunion performances in 2010 (or the Jicks’ shows in 2011), be sure to check out former frontman Stephen Malkmus’ tour this February for some grimy, sludgy, yelping, indie rock ‘n’ roll.
Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, the band he formed in 2000 almost immediately after Pavement’s hiatus in 1999, released the commendable Mirror Traffic last year. Mirror Traffic is the fifth album Malkmus has recorded post-Pavement.
