Fortunately, Pavement was nice enough to go on a reunion tour that stopped in Boston last autumn right as my love for them was at a peak high. Better yet, my pal Sara was able to visit the weekend of the show, so I didn't have dance my little heart out without someone super pumped right next to me. I believe the exact words of my incredibly professional concert review that night were, "my face got rocked off".
Anyway, there's not really anything I can say about Pavement that hasn't been said before many times, but here are a few images that make me a happy girl:

And just in case you haven't given Pavement a fair chance to infect your brain with pure, unadulterated awesomeness, I put together a mix of ten of their songs I love dearly featuring some hits and some seriously underrated jams.
1) Texas Never Whispers
2) Easily Fooled
5) Gold Soundz
6) Summer Babe [Winter Version]
7) Cut Your Hair
8) Shoot the Singer (1 Sick Verse)
9) Shady Lane/ J vs. S
10) In the Mouth of a Desert (Live)
