Pavement Brings The Fall, Quasi to ATP in 2010

    The Fall front man Mark E. Smith once called Pavement a “rip-off” of his prolific post-punk band, but he may have changed his tune now that the ‘90s slacker rock quintet is reunited and curating its own festival for All Tomorrow’s Parties. The show, which will take place from May 14-16 next year in Minehead, Somerset, is set to include The Fall, as well as German krautrockers Faust, San Francisco quartet Enablers, Matador employees and blues jammers Endless Boogie (whose first gig was opening for Stephen Malkmus in 2001) and Jicks drummer Janet Weiss’ other band Quasi.  Of course, Pavement will perform the headlining set.


    This is far from the complete three-day lineup, and more artists will be announced in the coming months. Too bad tickets are already sold out! [Pitchfork]
