Pavement played their first show in nearly 12 years (setlist, video, pics)

Pavement's reunion tour kicked off Monday night (5/23) in Los Angeles at The Fonda Theatre, serving as a warm-up for next week's Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona. Their first in 4,199 days (that's nearly 12 years), the Fonda show featured lots of songs that never got played during their last reunion tour, including "Harness Your Hopes," a b-side that has become their most-played song on Spotify. You can watch video of that below.

Other songs newly dusted off: Brighten the Corners' "Embassy Row" "Transport is Arranged" and "Type Slowly" (last played in 1997), Wowee Zowee's "Serpentine Pad," "Motion Suggests" and "Blackout" (last played in '96/'97), Terror Twilight's "Major Leagues" and "Folk Jam" (last played in 1999) and Slanted & Enchanted's "Flame Throwa," which hadn't been played in 29 years.

Their Fonda setlist also included "Our Singer," "Frontwards," "Trigger Cut," "Gold Soundz," "Two States," "The Hexx," "Shoot the Singer," "Cut Your Hair," "Range Life," "Shady Lane," Summer Babe," and more. Pavement ended their second encore with "Here" and a cover of Jim Pepper's "Witchi Tai To."

Check out the setlist and more fan-taken pics and video below.

In addition to Stephen Malkmus, Spiral Stairs, Bob Nastanovich, Mark Ibold and Steve West, Pavement are joined on this tour by Wild Flag's Rebecca Cole on keyboards.

Pavement's North American fall tour includes NYC shows at Kings Theatre on September 30 and October 1, 2, and 3. All dates are listed below.

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

We talked to Destroyer's Dan Bejar, Nada Surf's Matthew Caws, and more about Pavement's enduring influence. We also rounded up some of the best Pavement covers by other artists.
