The man, the myth, the effortlessly parted hair of the Pavement legend
Stephen Malkmus was the pinup of '90s jangly guitar music, providing a safer alternative to Kurt Cobain with his lo-fi indie outfit Pavement. He’s now releasing his sixth studio album with The Jicks. He’s mellowed, he’s experimenting, and (like the American Jarvis Cocker he is) he’s lost none of that wry humour and ability to turn a phrase. Catch a legend while you can. General admission, standing. Tickets usually £17.50, plus £3.40 booking fee. Over 18s only.
"...the first big, important indie rock album of the new year."
