Pavement played Virgin FreeFest (setlist) after completing their run of 5 NYC shows (one more set of Summerstage pics)

Pavement @ Summerstage Friday

After six nights in gotham that included one show in a bonafide downpour, two TV appearances (Colbert and Fallon), and thousands of tickets sold to five live shows, Pavement moved on to Marland Saturday to play the free Virgin Mobile FreeFest that went down at Merriweather Post Pavilion…

“False starts, aimless guitar-noodling, and Stephen Malkmus’ sloppy ‘do: Yup, it was a perfect Pavement set. Now several months into its reunion, the legendary indie-rock quintet cycled through every song but “Box Elder” that’s essential to a Pavement show, often with heavy audience accompaniment. Some of the crowd’s favorite singalong lines: “No big hair!” in “Cut Your Hair”; “Not here, babe!” in “Summer Babe”; “Don’t worry, we’re in no hurry!” in “Range Life.” It was uncharacteristically unslackerish, which is to say Bob Nastanovich wasn’t the only member rocking out. Malkmus was in particularly good spirits. After the band ended “Spit On a Stranger,” he joked that he’d auditioned with the song for American Idol. “I couldn’t hit the high notes,” he said.” [Spin]

Pavement‘s NYC victory lap ended one day earlier with their fourth show at Summerstage/Rumsey Playfield. We previously posted the set list and promised more pictures from the show. Here they are (though none of opener The Beets unfortunately).

On Sunday Pavement played Atlanta, and the band has five more dates to go before they hang it up again (or will they?) (should they?). Those dates include Hollywood Bowl in LA with Sonic Youth and No Age, and the Matador 21 Festival.
