New shows announced

Pavement will play another live show at Brixton Academy, it has been revealed.

ATP released the following statement today:

"Due to huge public demand ATP Concerts are happy to announce a second London headline show from the legendary Pavement at Brixton Academy – as well as the previously announced show on Tuesday 11th May they will also play Wednesday 12th May.

"After years of speculation, arguably the most important American band of the Nineties is returning to the stage with the line-up of Mark Ibold, Scott "Spiral Stairs" Kannberg, Stephen Malkmus, Bob Nastanovich and Steve West reuniting for dates around the world in 2010 including curating and performing the recently announced and now sold out ATP Festival Weekend 2 on May 14th – 16th.

"Described in their own Wikipedia entry as having experienced "moderate commercial success," Pavement's catalogue for the Matador, Domino, Drag City and Treble Kicker imprints has come to define in the eyes of many the blueprint for independent rock over the past generation and we are thrilled to be able to bring the to the UK."
