Pavement Reunites, Pitchfork Uses Exclamation Points

Canonized nineties indie band Pavement announced this week that they would reunite in 2010 for their first tour in years, prompting an unprecendented effusion of apparently unironic enthusiasm from Pitchfork.

“Holy Shit: Pavement Reunion is Real!” said the sourpuss music site. “!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

So far the only confirmed show is September 21, 2010 at Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield. Ticket presale starts today at ten, and general sales begin on the 25th.
