Pavement announce tour openers: Horsegirl, The Goon Sax, Steve Gunn, more

Pavement just played their first show in nearly 12 years, and will head to Barcelona and Porto next week for Primavera Sound. Their fall tour starts in September, and they've just announced the openers for all dates. They include, at various stops, Circuit des Yeux, Horsegirl, Steve Gunn, The Goon Sax, 75 Dollar Bill, Film School, Guerilla Toss, Kelley Stoltz, Piranha Rama, Annalibera, and Weak Signal. All dates and openers are listed below.

NYC gets four nights at Kings Theatre and The Goon Sax will open on September 30, 75 Dollar Bill open on October 1, Horsegirl open on October 2 and Steve Gunn opens on October 3.

Pavement's show in L.A. last night featured lots of songs they didn't play on their last reunion tour. Check out setlist, video and pics.

We talked to Horsegirl, The Goon Sax and others, including Destroyer's Dan Bejar and Nada Surf's Matthew Caws, about the enduring influence of Pavement.

Pick up Pavement albums on vinyl, including the Terror Twilight deluxe edition and the new Westing (By Musket & Sextant) repress, in the BV shop.
