For the first time since their November 1999 show at London's Brixton Academy, Pavement has actually, officially, seriously booked a performance at Rumsey Playfield for Central Park SummerStage September 21, 2010. That gives you about 370 days.

With so many Pavement rumors flying right now, its hard to keep track of fantasy and actual confirmed details so here are the facts (so far):

1) They are playing SummerStage
2) The line-up includes Mark Ibold, Scott Spiral Stairs Kannberg, Stephen Malkmus, Bob Nastanovich and Steve West
3) This is a reunion tour, the band is not reuniting.

In a (very) recent interview with Rolling Stone, guitarist Scott Kannberg said:

"Steve [Malkmus] and I just had a conversation on the phone, and we'd never talked about it before at all. We've talked over the years, but the subject never came up. Then our agent asked us about these New York shows, so we went around to everybody in the band, and they said, 'Yeah, the time is right If everybody's ready to do it, then we'll do it and see what happens.' There was no real impetus it just kind of happened naturally."


A pre-sale begins at 10:00 AM EDT on Friday, September 18, 2009 (that's tomorrow), and the password for the pre-sale is ZOWEE. Tickets will also be available without surcharges from the Nokia Theatre box office in Times Square and from Earwax at 218 Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg.-Amelia Trask
