Anyone who has stood in front of their bedroom mirror and attempted to mimic the stylistic nonchalance of Steve Malkmus may suddenly be able to turn that dream into a reality. The band has launched a competition for one lucky person to play guitar with them during a forthcoming appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s show on Sept. 23.
Potential band members just need to upload a video of themselves playing a Pavement song to Fallon’s website by Sept. 8--which doesn’t give much time to perfect that perfect “Summer Babe” riff. An online vote will then determine the winner, who will be announced on Sept. 20, just three days before the actual performance. A statement on Matablog about this momentous occasion reads as follows:
“Ever wanted to go to a TV taping? One where Pavement is playing? Stick around to try and meet the band? Go backstage? Watch soundcheck? Eat their food? Talk fantasy sports with Malkmus? Ever wanted to, you know, get your lazy ass off the couch and JOIN PAVEMENT? Then do it, goofball. Imagine the Twitter potential!"
