When the weather starts getting warm, I often find myself turning to Pavement. I think it’s ‘cuz the music is free, easy, optimistic, clever, balls out, sort of stoned—all these things. For me, pretty much it’s the feeling of the start of something good. This year, I think the feeling’s gotten stronger after seeing Slow Century, the documentary that came out in 2002. If you wanna watch a rock film about a bunch of dudes who just flat-out had fun and didn’t care about accolades but still got quite a few, this is the one. I’m really looking forward to catching them this September.
