Pavement is reuniting for two shows next year, one at Primavera Sound in Barcelona, Spain and another at NOS Primavera in Porto, Portugal. Primavera Sound made the announcement via social media on Saturday.
Crooked Rain is the second studio album by American indie rock band Pavement. The album, released on February 2, 1994, saw the band move on towards a more accessible rock sound than that of their more lo-fi debut Slanted and Enchanted and achieve moderate success with the single "Cut Your Hair".
"Cut Your Hair" was written by Pavement songwriter and lead singer Stephen Malkmus. The song snidely attacks the importance of image in the music industry. In one verse, Malkmus sarcastically recites a fictitious ad looking for a musician to join a band: "advertising looks and chops a must/ no big hair".
