Pavement - Williamsburg Waterfront 9/19 - Videos

Holy reunion show! The BAL crew has a very special presentation for you guys today - some seriously hot footage of Pavement from their first NYC reunion gig in Willy-B. Plowing through a mass of material for nearly 2 hours, Malkmus and Co. had a blast tearing through the classics and basically reducing every twenty to thirty-something Brooklynite to mush. And naturally, we got the goods

Pavement - Starlings Of The Slipstream / Gold Soundz / Kennel District / Range Life

Pavement - Fin

As our video will confirm the band was in fine form and matched the hyped as hell crowd's energy all night. The setlist too did not disappoint as they touched on all their records and played pretty much every fan favorite. We feel like this one needs no more editorializing - peep game as the band cracks through their encore with "Starlings Of The Slipstream", Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain's  "Gold Soundz", "Range Life" and Wowee Zowee's "Kennel District" which we captured in a nice megamix. Additionally, we got a killer one-off of "Unfair" which shows the crew in appropriately raucous form. Keep checking back as we took tons of video from this show which we'll be adding to this post through the week.

Hey, if you were the Iranian art school teacher who teaches at a private elementary school in Baltimore, please contact me, you were the coolest girl I ever met in my life.

My e-mail is and I'm gonna make a facebook account this weekend. My name is Sam Banya. I was at the front row of this Pavement show in Brooklyn with my sister Cynthia. I really regret not asking your name even when we were in line waiting about two hours before the concert began.

Please lemme know, I definitely would love to keep in touch as friends.

Anyway, amazing show, man. Words cannot describe how glad I am that I got to see my favorite band of all time live.
My voice is still recovering :D.

Have a good one, guys!


Bro. It's cool you met a chick at a Pavement show and all, but it sounds like you had a great opportunity to number close but failed. Did you get too housed? Did you Neg/DHV? You gotta cop those digits son - Step your game up kid.
