Full Pavement concert from the Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain tour in Frankfurt, March 6th 1994. The audio comes from the soundboard and two people shot the whole thing on camera, one to the side of the stage and the other from the back of the room. Here's the set list and a little bit more info. The same production company, now defunct, has a few other concerts up on YouTube: Sonic Youth in 2004, Yo La Tengo in 2000, The Frogs in 1988, and a whole host of Sebadoh clips, including a whole concert from 1996.

I will treat this post like an oil well.

Even when it's off the front page, out of sight?

This is my demographic wheelhouse. Can't wait to subject my 9-years junior fiancée to it!

The Frogs were the best thing that ever happened to the human race.

Yeah this 13 guy was provided multi-cam footage from a couple German (I think) dudes who taped and filmed a lot of shows in the mid 90s. These were all over live show bittorrent about 10 years ago. I think the partnership ended acrimoniously when they expressed disappointment over a particular YLT show he uploaded as a continuous splitscreen, feeling that he hadn't really put his back into the edit on that one. There was also talk of a GbV show from Hamburg '95 that never saw the light of day because 13 didn't like GbV.

Hooray! This is super-nostalgic for me, so thank you!

I first saw Pavement play in '94, during this tour. It was in Perth, Western Australia, and friends of mine were playing support for them in a tiny basement venue with an audience of maybe fifty people. After the gig the band invited us back to their hotel room, where I had a brief conversation with Malkmus about urban planning (he wanted to know why Perth had 'so many artificial parks', but I had no idea what he was talking about because I hadn't travelled anywhere else yet and didn't know there were any other kinds of parks) and a really, really long conversation with Bob Nastanovich about his mum and horse racing. Mark Ibold gave me a postcard from Prague, where they'd just been, and Spiral Stairs gave me a 'high-tech Japanese multi-vitamin' that I kept in a special box for about five years afterwards because I'm a massive, massive nerd. They really couldn't have been nicer dudes.

Awwwww, I had almost forgotten how awful they were live. :)

Malkmus just oozes rock and roll cool. Thanks for these!

Personally I've always thought that the camera loves Bob Nastanovich.
