This seems to be the set list picture floating around. Looks about right but they finished with Conduit For Sale. Elevate Me Later was in there somewhere as well. I just bopped up and down with a huge grin on my face the entire time.


Newark Wilder should be in there as well if I remember correctly.

It didn't show up for me, but I cut & pasted the URL. Looks like an awesome show!

I'm tickled that they're using the same method--same font, even--for drawing up their set lists, 10 years later.

Oh, that list includes "Elevate Me Later," it's just written up as "LSII."

People.

I can't believe that we--as a musically-inclined internet community--don't have more to say about the fact that PAVEMENT PLAYED A SHOW LAST NIGHT.

Yeah, I saw that, too, but the LiveNation guy said the show isn't even in their database yet.

Oh my God, Pavementgasm!

The sound wasn't great, they didn't play Rattled By the Rush or Type Slowly and they didn't play Elevate Me Later particularly well. Basically it wasn't the trascendental experience I'd unrealistically hoped it would be, but just because it didn't live up to my hopes doesn't mean it didn't live up to - and in fact exceed - my expectations. From listening to bootlegs, I've never considered Pavement a great live band, or at least not consistently great. I'm prepared to go along with Malkmus' claim that one in three of their shows sucked. I don't know if I got one of the good ones or if they've ironed out the kinks through constant rehearsal and hindsight, but it sure was great overall. My prediction that they would open with Cream of Gold was way off (they didn't even play it), but my closing prediction of Perfume V would have been correct if they hadn't played a second encore (well worth it for almost any two songs, but the fact that they played Fin blew me away).

Here's what they played, but not in order.

Summer Babe (encore, I think)
Trigger Cut
In the Mouth a Desert
Conduit for Sale! (main set closer)
Zurich is Stained
Here (encore)
Perfume V (first encore closer)
First 4 songs from CRCR (Silence Kit was opener)
Unfair
Gold Soundz
Range Life
We Dance (encore)
Grounded
Father to a Sister of Thought
Kennel District
Stereo
Shady Lane (encore)
Date w/ Ikea
Fin (2nd encore)
Spit on a Stranger (2nd encore closer)
The Hexx (played "And Then" style)
Debris Slide (encore)
Frontwards

I might not be right about what was in the first encore, 'cause it looks as if there are too many, but the above songs and no others were all definitely played at some point in the evening.

edit: Decided Fight This Generation probably wasn't in the encore. It may have been the penultimate song in the main set.

Mine was NZ$90. Which likely sounds expensive but when you take into account the exchange rate and the $$ involved in getting down here it wasn't too bad. More than I'd usually pay for a show though.

I set my fucking alarm for ten minutes ago, logged on to this here fucking computer, queued up fucking "Silence Kid" on iTunes, hit up Ticketmaster's website, hit the refresh button about 25 times, and here I am, 2 minutes after the tickets go on sale, BASKING IN MY GREAT VICTORY.

Hey people who have already seen Pavement: what's the merch situation like? New t-shirts, etc? Stickers at the table? I need both.

I'm really hoping that Pavement tapped American Apparel for the t-shirts this time around.

They had about four or five different t-shirts available at the Enmore in Sydney, including one with the guy from Wowee Zowee saying "Pavement Ist Rad", one with an army marching, one that said "This Pavement Reunion Ist Rad" and one that said "Pavement' in goofy lettering. I got the first one. They also had Brighten the Corners and Terror Twilight stickers. I didn't buy a sticker. I was tempted, but I've always thought $5 for a sticker is highway robbery. They also had posters, but those had run out before I had a chance to get one. Overall, it was probably the best merch situation I've seen outside a festival.

And to answer your earlier question, my ticket was $AU73.50 plus booking fee.

Off topic, but of course the merch desk I most wish I could have patronised was the one at Damo Suzuki and the Holy Soul, which I considered seeing, but didn't. Apparently Suzuki himself was manning the desk during Tex Perkins' supporting set. That would have been great. Ain't nothin' like a conversation between a mumbler and a guy who speaks broken English.

Y'know, I wish I still had the Pavement tee I bought when I saw them on the Terror Twilight tour.  It was the medieval tapestry-lookin one w/ three guys, one playing an organ, guy playing lute, some kinda flautist.  Said Pavement.  Nice khaki color.  That'd be a good shirt to still have, but I have no idea.

I still have mine of that, except I got it on blue.

I don't know if I've seen that one. I bought several on the Terror Twilight tour--a khaki t-shirt with a skeleton holding a towel in front of nekkid lady, a black t-shirt with a reflective silver cityscape and art deco lettering, and a green one with a hooded figure standing in front of a map of Ghana (I think).

My favorite is still the navy blue Pavement/Paveme˝t one from the Brighten tour.

Actually, I think the khaki skeleton one was from Brighten, too. I also had the standard album cover design shirt from that tour.

The only two that have survived are the Ghana and Paveme˝t ones.
