Pavement Is Totally Reuniting.


Indie-rock slackers Pavement -- who, like the Pixies, arguably seem to be more popular now than when they were together -- are reuniting in 2010, according to blog Brooklynvegan. Pitchfork notes a September show at Central Park's Summerstage next year as the first confirmed date. (Vocalist Stephen Malkmus, as you'll remember, drew a pretty disappointing crowd to the Pageant last November.)

I've never been a huge Pavement fan, although I own a bunch of albums and have been trying for years to get into the band. So, enlighten me: Why do you like Pavement? What am I missing? Why are people freaking out about this? And for that matter, when did the band last play in St. Louis -- anyone remember?
