Pavement have performed their ‘Perfect Sound Forever’ cut ‘Angel Carver Blues/Mellow Jazz Docent’ live for the first time since 1996 – watch the performance below.
Released in 1991, ‘Perfect Sound Forever’ marked the third EP from the indie outfit. The performance of one of its lead songs, ‘Angel Carver Blues/Mellow Jazz Docent’, went down last night (October 8) at The Eastern in Atlanta, Georgia, coming as part of Pavement’s current North America headline tour.

The band followed that up with a headline slot at Primavera Sound Barcelona and Porto back in June.
After wrapping up their current North American headline run, Pavement will play a host of UK shows later this month, which includes a four-date residency at the Roundhouse in London.
“I listened to every song, just about, that we ever did,” he said of how he prepared for the run, “starting from the very beginning to make sure I had enough material to surprise people and make it magical and every show different.”
Pavement’s recent gig in Philadelphia saw them bring out Kurt Vile to perform ‘Zurich Is Stained’, while a pop-up Pavement museum also recently opened in New York City to mark the start of the American indie-rockers’ residency at the city’s Kings Theatre.
