Transport is Arranged?

File this under “things I’m skeptical about”, but according to Pitchfork’s “real non-imaginary source”, Pavement is actually going to reunite to play a benefit show in NYC in late 2010.

I’m cautiously excited, because they really are my favorite band, but…

  1. Rumors of a Pavement reunion crop up every year or two
  2. They’re notoriously cryptic pranksters
  3. Their live shows, by all accounts, were always fairly hit and miss
  4. SM & The Jicks kick all kinds of ass
  5. Inevitable reunion stigma

This isn’t to say it couldn’t be good, or wouldn’t be good; some reunions have been awesome and worthwhile. Damned if I don’t want to go anyway.

Update: It’s totally real and Amy and I are totally going to go. I always wanted an excuse to visit New York for more than an hour.
