Apparently unencumbered by any Coachella-enforced touring restrictions, Pavement played their first U.S. show in 10+ years last night. In Pomona. As much as a pain of a drive that Pomona is, it was actually a pretty awesome fringe L.A. crowd, maybe with the exception of the superfan next to me continually screaming “we missed you” like Spiral Stairs was her younger brother home from college and requesting “Debris Slide” as if knowledge of the relatively obscure b-side was her ticket backstage. Unfortunately for me, it wasn’t.
