Austin City Limits is thrilled to announce we will be live streaming the highly-anticipated debut taping of alternative rock legends Pavement on Oct. 10 at 8 pm CT. ACL offers fans worldwide the unique opportunity to watch this taping here in its entirety on our ACLTV YouTube Channel. The broadcast episode will air early 2023 on PBS as part of our new Season 48.
Among the most beloved acts to come out of the American underground in the 1990s, Pavement are Mark Ibold, Scott “Spiral Stairs” Kannberg, Stephen Malkmus, Bob Nastanovich and Steve West. Originally from Stockton, California, the band released five era-defining albums – Slanted And Enchanted (1992), Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain (1994), Wowee Zowee (1995), Brighten The Corners (1997) and Terror Twilight (1999) – before disbanding in 1999. With Terror Twilight receiving an expanded reissue, the band reunited this year for its first shows in more than a decade, including a 30th anniversary headline set at Primavera Sound. This fall they will tour throughout the US, EU, UK, and Japan. Pavement’s 2010 reunion saw them play four sold out shows in Central Park and top the bills of festivals worldwide including Coachella, Primavera Sound, and Pitchfork.
Join us here October 10 at 8 p.m. CT for Pavement, and on PBS early next year for the broadcast episode. Tune in to your local PBS station on Saturday nights for brand new episodes of Austin City Limits; watch live on PBS or stream anytime at PBS.org.
