Pavement 'Reunion' at The 5 Spot

The Internets were abuzz last month when Brooklyn Vegan broke the news of a Pavement reunion—and again when the band sold out five nights in New York over a year in advance—but there was plenty of buzz in Nashville this past February when a couple hundred wide-eyed wedding crashers got to see the closest thing to a Pavement redux to hit a stage in almost a decade. Sure, they didn't play anything off Wowee Zowee, and Spiral Stairs wasn't even there, but just seeing them—bumping into them, even!—at Bob Nastanovich's open-to-the-public reception was thrill enough for the slacker rock-starved who got to witness Malkmus leading a crack house band through "Come and Get Your Love" and a few other pop classics.
