[pitchfork.com] UPDATE: Spiral Stairs has posted an entry on his blog about the Auckland show, featuring photos and the setlist.
As you may have heard, the indie rock band Pavement are traveling around the world on a reunion tour this year. And just a few hours ago, they wrapped up their first show in more than a decade at Auckland, New Zealand's Town Hall.
Naturally, a picture of what sure looks like a Pavement reunion tour setlist is making the rounds online. (Via BrooklynVegan.) And, to make the tour kickoff that much sweeter, Pavement just announced six more U.S. dates in September. Their updated 2010 itinerary is below.
According to the purported setlist (which cuts off in the middle of the encore), the band concentrated on beloved early songs from Slanted and Enchanted and Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain. The set contained a good portion of the tracklist for the forthcoming Pavement best-of, Quarantine the Past.
No video of the gig has surfaced just yet. (Keep track of setlists and media from the tour on this well-organized fansite.)
