So on Tuesday the Internets were buzzing with rumors of a possible Pavement reunion, and much to everyone’s surprise that story was confirmed on Wednesday by Pitchfork, and then again early on Thursday by the Beggars Group, and finally one more time late in the day on Thursday in an email from City Parks Foundation (the folks behind Summerstage) themselves. Here’s the pertinent part from the Matador press release:
The first show announced is a New York performance on September 21, 2010 at Central Park SummerStage. A pre-sale begins at 10:00 a.m. EDT on Friday, September 18, 2009.
