“In addition to trying to entertain with a vast blend of music from 1950-2015 (he has been on a bit of a Hawaiian kick and you’re as likely to hear Walter Wanderley as Wire), Nastanovich gladly takes suggestions on strategies to reignite Pavement and Silver Jews action.”

Holy moly! Look what we stumbled upon. Indie-rockers Pavement filmed at a live show they performed at Old City venue The Khyber Pass on July 30th, 1992, four months after they released their now-classic debut full length album, Slanted and Enchanted.

“No cracks in this Pavement,” wrote Philly music critic Jonathan Valania, in his review of the show in the The Morning Call.

At the time, Pavement were the indie rock band of the moment, playing a kind ...

TLA Welcomes Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks with Endless Boogie

Source: Rock On Philly

On Saturday night, the Theatre of Living Arts warmed up to the endless grooves of Endless Boogie. By endless, I mean the songs felt like forever.
