FL Exclusive: Pavement forGolden Plains

FasterLouder can exclusively reveal that indie icons Pavement will play their first shows since 1999 right here in Australia. One of those performances will be on the fabled stage of the Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre for Golden Plains Festival 2010.

The band released five towering albums throughout the – œ90s, before parting in 1999. In the decade since, there’s been much – œwill they, won’t they?’ murmuring over a possible return. Finally, in September of this year, Mark Ibold, Scott Kannberg, Stephen Malkmus, Bob Nastanovich and Steve West declared: “Pavement are back”. They’re set to headline and curate ATP UK in May, but not before we get the first audience. Miraculous news indeed.

Pavement is the first confirmed name for 2008 – œBest Festival’ winner Golden Plains on the weekend of March 6-8 2010 – and really, anything else will be a bonus. The men will play headline shows around the country as well. You may now collect your jaw from the ground.

Pavement play these shows in March 2010. Tickets on sale 9am Friday 23 October.

Thursday 4 March – Enmore Theatre, Sydney
Saturday 6 March – Golden Plains Festival, Victoria
Sunday 7 March – Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide
Monday 8 March – Metro City, Perth
Wednesday 10 March – The Tivoli, Brisbane
Friday 12 March – The Palace, Melbourne

I'm sorry, but did you just relate Pavement to 30 Seconds to Mars? Are you for real?

JackT

JackT said on the 14th Oct, 2009

I believe it was a joke. Almost.

g-man wouldn't be as stoked for this as he would be for the taylor swift and cobra starship gigs he is attending.

Weren't you the guy who'd never listened to the Rolling Stones?

If you make a claim to liking indie rock, Slanted and Enchanted is a must listen.

Cool like dogmongler and linesofbestfit.

lineofbestfit doesnt like Pavement because none of their band members have ever died in a tragic road accident, so he doesnt have anything to mock them for.

lineofbestfit

lineofbestfit said on the 16th Oct, 2009

Hey mr dynamite remember that little stephen malkmus thread where you said i was living in denial when i said pavement will be here march, so how would you like your serving, coals up your ass or pitchfork in your nuts?;)

lineofbestfit

lineofbestfit said on the 16th Oct, 2009


not only that i knew when they were touring, btw mr danonthespot manchester orchestra aren't cool as they are god worshipers.

Napoleon Solo

Napoleon Solo said on the 16th Oct, 2009



Do you remember when I said that I hoped I was wrong? Bad news for you is that you get to find out what happens when I see you in person again.

lineofbestfit

lineofbestfit said on the 16th Oct, 2009

Oh look it's mr dynamite with the e threats as he can't handle being wrong, someone's just had a little bit of ego defeat and making threats on a public forum isn't a real smart idea buddy

Napoleon Solo

Napoleon Solo said on the 17th Oct, 2009



I am more than happy to be wrong as I previously stated but if it makes you feel better to believe that I just destroyed 5 packs of tim tams whilst in between calls to lifeline... then yeah you really got to me.

You were the one complaining about keyboard warriors not having the balls to say stuff to your face. Now that I know our paths will cross once again I wanted to pleasantly surprise you. With your help I am going to demonstrate to the IOC why dwarf chucking should be considered for the 2016 Olympics.

you are pathetic you are still going in with the 'homeless' talk i have never been homeless buddy always had a place to stay, maybe you are the one who is homeless and congratulations you have just been reported for abusve and threats buddy. Plus i'd like to see you try in a crowd full of people, i will also alert the police to this thread if anything eventuates further with your threats.

Napoleon Solo

Napoleon Solo said on the 17th Oct, 2009



Wow what a weeping vagina, be sure to tell the police that you are in danger of being tossed for the australian dwarf record of 12 yards.
I haven't even used a homeless line today, talk about paranoid...
I tell you what, I will come down to whichever netcafe you are loitering in and give you a box of chocolates and a humourous sorry card.

lineofbestfit

lineofbestfit said on the 17th Oct, 2009

I believe life line is classified as that unless you are talking about eating free meals and sorry yet again i own a laptop, hence which is why i am not on any forums any more like broken glass, kill your stereo and bombsell as they just ban the ip address. I'm just not in the mood to deal with e threats of any nature. Dudes from here send me a message and told me to get along with people and that's what i'm trying to do. :D

Napoleon Solo

Napoleon Solo said on the 17th Oct, 2009


lifeline wasn't even directed at you, pillock.
Well you are crying about threats that don't really exist. You are going to have a great time, all the dwarves that I have previously thrown will vouch for that.

lineofbestfit

lineofbestfit said on the 17th Oct, 2009

I'll talk to willow about that and i'm not a dwarf i'm just an oversized midget.
