Alt-rock legends Pavement have been ambling across North America in recent months as a part of their heavily anticipated reunion tour, in which Stephen Malkmus and company are playing their first shows together since 2010. Later this month, the band will head four sold-out sets at Kings Theater in Brooklyn. To coincide with the week of landmark performances, Pavement are also premiering an art exhibition, Pavements 1933-2022: A Pavement Museum from September 29 to October 2. The installation will also be featured in London and Tokyo before becoming a permanent piece in the band’s hometown of Stockton, California.
The exhibit will feature “previously unseen imagery, artwork and ephemera, commendations and commemorations” and “relics of the band’s real and imagined history” across 30 years. Named after Pavement’s 1989 debut EP Slay Tracks 1933-1969, the exhibition is bound to feed into the band’s lighthearted persona and provide humorous undertones to an unabashed and storied three decades of groundbreaking indie rock.
