I have always hoped for the day when the news would arrive that Indie Godfathers, Pavement were reuniting. I often consider going to Mark Ibold’s place of work (he works in a resturant in NYC) and trying to talk to him about ‘How we can rebuild Pavement’. Well, I ALMOST had it this time!
Pavement reunited at Bob Nastanovich’s Nashville wedding where all members were in attendence. Stephen Malkmus, Ibold, and Steve West took to the stage as Malkmus performed “Come and Get Your Love” and The O’ Jays “Love Train.” WOW. That must have been a site to see. By the end of the night the Pavement boys were onstage, not performing with each other, but just there together. I guess its been too long since they’ve played together to play actual Pavement songs. Whether or not Pavement will ever actually reunite is up in the air, but fingers crossed! Ibold we need to talk…..
