So apparently it is finally going to happen (we thinks) - Pavement Reunion! Word on the world wide web is that Pavement will play a benefit of some sort at Summerstage in Central Park on September 21st of 2010. Let's pray that this is true, and also for a full tour. Speculations abound, but there has not ever been anything as "concrete" as this one (they actually set a date). See you in the park in 370 days.
New York is one of the best places to be for live music. This is especially true in the summer, when there are several free, outdoor shows. Here are some of the better pictures I have taken at shows thus far this summer.

As I sit here watching the clock creep towards 5 o'clock, I can't help get excited for Dr. Dog Saturday night in Prospect Park. This is a part of the summer series "Celebrate Brooklyn", and the show is free (although they would surely appreciate a small donation at the gate). Check out this site for details. The Bandshell entrance is at Prospect Park West and 9th Street in Park Slope. So if you are in Brooklyn Saturday night and want to hear some good summertime tunes, for FREE, head over to the park. Below is a live performance of "The Rabbit, The Bat, and The Reindeer" from their latest record Fate to get you excited as well. See you at the park.
Let us never forget all the good times your tunes have brought us all over the years, and will continue to bring forever. As someone who can be pretty picky with my music, MJ has always been a choice everyone can agree on.
