thank you!

hello from brisbane... i'm trying to come down from such a momentous year. thanks to all who came to see pavement and spiral play in 2010. i know i didn't get much of a chance to do many spiral shows but
hopefully in the new year that will change. i will start working on a new spiral record real soon. for the time being, mt. fuji records have just released a split 7" single with the long winters. it's an out-take from the real feel named "dreams they guide us".

in pavement news: we will be re-launching the website in the new year with free audio, video, and lot's more...  and a store where you can find all things pavement you might have missed on the 2010 tour.

too many people to thank for the great times this year but want to especially thank you the fans for supporting us.

happy holidays.

sao paulo

hello from south america! this is the first time pavement will be down here. we play on saturday in sao paulo with the amazing smashing pumkins and sunday and monday in BA on our own. glad to finally be here and can't wait to play the shows.

thanks again to all who came to all the other shows throughout this year. we really appreciated the love. it made us feel really good to play the old songs once again and who knows... maybe we'll end up doing more as time goes on. but for now, we are working on revamping the pavement website to make our merch and digital recordings more available in the future. check out for more info.

as for me, i've relocated to melbourne as of 3 weeks ago. i'm hoping to start work on a new spiral stairs album in the new year. and hopefully get on the road again!

see you soon.

thanks southland!

ok. we conquered coachella. now the anxiety can cease. hope all who saw us enjoyed. we know we did. all in all, it was a fun show. we were a little nervous when we went on, but after a few songs we hit our stride. the response from the crowd was very generous and nice. thanks again! hope to see all of you at the hollywood bowl in sept. we also got a nice write up in the ny times. not sure i said that first line, i think it might have been sm. oh well, the parents will like it. went early and saw the soft pack. if you haven't seen em, go! yo la tengo and spoon were also some of the highlights. below is the set list and some pix. see ya in dublin next!
didn't do box elder or conduit...
the soft pack...pomona, night before...

food, coffee, cocktails, party!

this is my breakfast on our united airlines flight from tokyo to los angeles... inedible! and you wonder why this airline goes bankrupt.

and this is jeremy lemos travel/tour blog for the chicago reader. jeremy does killa monitors for us and is a slick dresser. enjoy!

and last but not least are steaks from pappy and harriets... went here on the day before coachella. had a nice drive through joshua tree national park as well.

melbourne list...
little buddy!

new gold soundz!

this is the japanese box set. out through hostess records in japan. not sure how to get a hold of it yet, but matador will probably have some available soon.

it's all the studio records plus the videos and a couple live shows on dvd. all the cds are in paper sleeves and look great.
