    The Return Of Preston School Of Industry
    hello there. for quite awhile, all has been quiet on the psoi front… until now! a new record is in the works, hopefully done by the end of spring, a new website (still working on it), and the most exciting of all… we’re playing shows again! we’ve been asked to support the posies for their 20th anniversary show in seattle may 17th. we’re excited, since we still like the posies very much (even if the drummer is a rush fan). we’re also playing a bunch of new songs… as well as some old family favorites. if you’re up in the northwest, come on down. i’ve also been asked to be a guest curator for the sled island music fest up in calgary, alberta, canada june 25-28. very excited about this! i’ve picked a few of my favorite bands, old and new, to play. psoi will also be performing, but what is really gonna be special is that we’re doing a collaboration with the lads in broken social scene. most of it will be new material made up just for sled island! ok, thanks for listening and hopefully see you soon. spiral….

    I'm googling around looking for the date of a Pavement/Royal Trux show from 1997 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. If anyone knows the actual date of it, let me know please. Also, this is allenc, the admin of this board. I didn't realize it was still around. Haven't updated it since probably 2008. Fun times on this board.

    I was in Europe for the Euro Cup. Went to two games in Poland and spent the rest of our time in Berlin (have a cousin there). I was joking that we might run into SM blah blah blah. Sure enough ... we see him walking down my fricking cousin's street. WTF. He was great. Happy to take a photo and was chuffed we came from ... more

  • Lost Pavement Song! juliachrista, Sun Feb 19, 2012 22:24
    It seems a new band (Elvis Orbison) has "completed" a lost Pavement song - West S. What do you think?

  • Joanna Bolme and MalkmusesAnt, Fri Nov 18, 2011 18:04
    In this interview ( ), Joanna Bolme mentions acting a brief stunt in a TV series with Kyle MacLachlan, a notorious Malkmus-lookalike. Isn't that mind-blowing ?

    Jesus, what's this I hear about Spiral setting fire to Bob's moog and then tossing his guitar out into the matador audience? Is it true he swung the microphone stand at Malk's kneecaps and tried to tear out pieces of Westy's beard, and that he was only stopped by the heroic efforts of Mark Ibold and Jimi Smitts, the... more

    Despite my, um, lack of enthusiasm regarding all things "reunion," I loved the show last night. Bob was on FIRE. The jury is still out on whether SM is genuinely into it or not, but will probably never know. Shitty place to see a show, though. You gotta ferry it over. Then, if you wanted a beer, it was a 90-minute... more
