Dan Kois on Pavement Tickets

The New Yorker‘s Talk of the Town section has a nice piece by Dan Kois, on the harrowing logistical nightmares faced by Pavement fans who’ve been hanging on (or not) to their reunion show tickets for pretty much a whole year now. Here’s a taste:

“It’s so rare that you hold on to a physical artifact now,” Yancey Strickler, a Pavement fan and a co-founder of the Web site Kickstarter.com, said. Strickler has to be philosophical: he hid his Pavement tickets in a book and lost them right away. “I remember thinking, This book will remind me of Pavement,” he said. Since then, he has searched every book he owns. “I found a lot of old airplane-ticket stubs, but no concert tickets.”

And you can read the whole thing here.

This post should, obviously, serve as a reminder of two recent 33 1/3 volumes:

Dan Kois’ own book, on Israel Kamakawiwo’ole

and

Bryan Charles’ Pavement book.
